HomeAsiaSoutheast AsiaSingapore28 Photos That Show Why I Love to Travel in Singapore By Marcos Detourista. Updated on November 16, 2016.A collection of my best photo moments in Singapore. View captures of Singapore’s best attractions and highlights. Considering my love for off-beat and cheap destinations, it’s a bit odd that Singapore turned out to be one my most visited international destination so far. Every time I step foot at Singapore’s Changi Airport, I can’t help but ask myself why I keep coming back.The foremost reason was Singapore’s easy accessibility. It’s (physically) one of the closest international destinations from the Philippines and has direct flights from many major airports (Manila, Clark, Cebu, Kalibo, and Iloilo).On the majority of my trips to Singapore, I traveled in a group, mostly with my family. Singapore was a safe choice because of its reputation as an excellent family-friendly destination. It offered many attractions worth visiting for a wide-variety of people, and not to mention how much easier it was to travel within this island city-state compared to the chaotic settings in other popular urban destinations in Asia.I like watching TV shows about urban planning and architectural marvels, so even just thinking about visiting an “advanced” city like Singapore already gets me excited from the get go. It’s a utopia for urban junkies. Singapore’s touristic attractions are also worth visiting because they fused other things that I love like nature and sustainable developments. There is a wide variety of world-class zoos and marine parks that could keep animal lovers busy for days. The city also has many unique attractions that have become world icons like Gardens by the Bay and the Esplanade building. Singapore’s premiere theme park, Universal Studios, is also a fun destination that people of all ages could enjoy.Visiting many of these themed attractions can be expensive. Fortunately, Singapore has preserved its cultural heritage well, so its possible to enjoy cheap thrills like going on photo walks or food trips in cultural districts like Kampong Glam, Chinatown, Little India, .Here is a collection that highlights some of my best photo moments in Singapore:Mesmerizing Kinetic Rain sculpture at Changi Airport – Terminal 1.The unique Helix Bridge inspired from the double-helix structure of DNA.Breathtaking view of Singapore’s Skyline from one of the four viewing platforms along the Helix Bridge.Dusk view of the double Helix Bridge, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, and the lotus-shaped Art Science Museum.The Merlion and durian-inspired Esplanade Building at night.Nightshot of the Merion and Singapore’s HighrisesMe and the wall of skyscrapers at Singapore’s business and financial centre.Elegant interiors of The Shoppes (mall) at Marina Bay Intricate crystalline patterns on the exterior of Ion Orchard (mall) at Orchard RoadFar Far Away Castle at Universal Studios Singapore.Sci Fi City at Universal Studios Singapore.

It’s hot and humid in Singapore but there are air-conditioned spaces everywhere, so it’s tolerable. I’m definitely posting more about different things I’ve experienced in Singapore, there’s a lot more I haven’t blogged about. Like cycling in Pulau Ubin and taking photo walks around the city.
