View from marina bay sands

You’ve probably seen this insta famous building before but have you seen the view from the top? Head to the observation deck to see an incredible view of the city. Seeing Gardens by the Bay from above is a sight to see.

Unfortunately we lost our photos from here so you will have to take my word for it about the view 😉

Koon seng Road

Another insta famous place- but did you know these houses were built in the 1920s and inhabited by Perankan Chinese people? Some of the original families still live there so ensure to be respectful when visiting these picturesque houses.

Friends Cafe

If you are a Friends fan then this cute cafe is a must. Sit back and chill with a cuppa and watch an episode or two of Friends.

Tip- this cafe is pretty expensive, eat before going and only get a drink. The hot chocolate is yummy. Oh, and get here early for a good spot or you can reserve a table before you go on their website.

Opening times– 11am- 11pm
