I got to see Singapore just after the movie Crazy Rich Asians was released. As mentioned in the movie the country is small, rich, clean and has some of the best food! The city and can be toured around easy by taxi or by train. And 2 days in Singapore is more than enough to get a solid introduction to what this country is about and have some fun too!

Singapore has everything: skyscrapers, heritage, marketplaces, and untouched wilderness. There are so many things to do in Singapore. The glamour and fun of the 21st-century mixed with the wilder nature make a unique destination to see and is small enough you can see it on a stopover. As one of the global cities, Singapore is unlike any city in Asia as it merges both Eastern and Western culture into itself.

Singapore Zoo, which is something I missed but was rated highly from other travellers is a must-see expecailly if you are interested in South Asia wildlife.
Another main attraction is Sentosa Island, which has themed attractions, award-winning spas, lush rainforests, golden sandy beaches.
Finally, Merlion Park, which has the infamous Merlion statue which stands 8.6 metres tall and weighs 70 tonnes.
You need to eat and shop when in Singapore. It's impossible to avoid the hundreds of different hawker centers and malls that span the city.
If that doesn't interest you, other great sites include visiting Boat Quay for dinning, Marina Bay Sands (I call it the boat hotel), and the Supertrees at the Gardens by the Bay.

One thing you don't have to think about in Singapore is food. There are Hawkers centers everywhere. Hawker centers are food courts that have 10 to 30 or more food stalls each run by a local family. Each stand is a chance to try highly rated food on a budget. One of the best ones mentioned by Dave from Jones around the world was the Tiong Bahru Market.

For families, again the Singapore zoo is a must. The 28-hectare park has more than 3,000 animals. And kids love them. Another great spot (mentioned above) is Boat Quay, which has excellent views of the water and some of the best restaurants in the city.
