Singapore has a lot to offer: to visitors with a large wallet and people without any wallet at all. I will discuss in this article Singapore points of interest that are free of charge! So without an admission fee. All these Singapore points of interest can be visited for free and mostly have a bit more of a cultural aspect to it, you really don’t need to spend money on other admission fees if you know where to go!
I will discuss only the Singapore point of interest here that are mostly free of charge! Also be sure to read my article about areas to visit in Singapore!
The Gardens by the Bay
A must visit for all who haven’t been to Singapore. Basically the Gardens by the Bay have their distinct character due all to the vertical gardens called “Supertree Grove”. Huge artificial colorful trees that are full of plants and flowers. A truly magnificent place to visit and unique only to Singapore (I think). Besides having a great atmosphere, nature and unique vertical gardens there are many other things to do. Especially for children and for those who are young at heart. For example, bring your swimsuit and play around at the water park. With its many fountains, sprinkles and other splash fun you will have a good time cooling down! Or take a walk through the vertical gardens in the air. There is a high walking bridge in the Supertree Grove which gives you a great view over the park and its nature. Also, however not free of admission, be sure to visit the flower & bird dome. A dome with many flowers, bird and butterflies that is a great place to be educated entertained and amazed by all the best things that mother earth has to offer.
The Singapore Merlion
Situated at the Singapore Bay area this landmark is free of admission and a must see. The statue that splashes water and looks over the bay is what Singapore resembles. When Singapore was discovered someone thought to see a lion coming from the water. Singa, meaning Lion in Malay, stems from this sight and Pore meaning city. Hence, Singapore. The Merlion landmark has a nice walking bridge going to it with a deck so you can see the Merlion from all angles. Take a sit on one of the many stairs and just watch the fast amount of tourists visting this landmark. Or look over the bay with all the boats going back and forth. Around 8pm there is a free light and laser show going each evening. Stretching out from the Marina Bay Sands all the way over the whole bay are very nice Singapore points of interest that are free of admission!
Botanical Gardens & Cloud Forrest
No, not all Botanic Gardens are the same. Not if you have seen the Singaporean Botanic Gardens. This is a must visit Singapore Point of interest! A great place to escape the city and to get indulged by some of the most amazing places in Singapore. The gardens offer a vast array of exotic plants, trees and flowers. If you’re lucky you even might see some dog-sized lizards or a snake or two! It’s safe though! Yes, there is a lot to see and experience at the Botanic gardens. Very easy to go to by Metro and free of admission! Although anytime of the day is good, I would say go there in the morning. It’s not that hot then, the chance you see some animals is bigger and it’s not that busy as in the afternoon.
Although most attraction at Sentosa Island are not free of admission, such as the theme parks and museums, it’s a nice place to check out. Basically it’s a huge island made to entertain anyone who dares to visit it. The scenery is nice, they great parks and awesome man-made beaches. If you have some time left in Singapore, check it out! Good restaurants, ice-cream stalls and bars all around. And if you like to burn some cash, go skydiving, surfing, S.E.A World, Universal Studios, the Trick Eye Museum or Madame Tussaud. When you cross the island and make your way to one of the amazing beaches you will cross a Gaudi inspired park that is nice to see too! Go there!
Palawan, Silosa & Tanging Beach at Sentosa Island
Most of the attractions are rather pricy at Sentosa Island, the beach called Palawan is free of admission and a great place to spend the day. It’s not going to be more beachy in Singapore! Although the drinks and food are not cheap, bring your own and just go for it! Yet there is a lot of other things to do in Singapore, definitely the Singapore points of interest that cannot be missed if you stay over for a few days! Ah, during the year there are many free festivals and other stuff to do at the beach! All free of charge and a lot of fun!
ION Tower at Orchard Road
Head to the ION tower at Orchard road and go all the way up the one of the highest towers in Town. Truly one of the greater Singapore points of interest for those who have not that much to spend. Take the elevator to the 56th floor with a whopping 218 meters you will get one of the best views in town. Basically you can see the whole city in a staggering 360 degrees view.
There is also a decent bar and restaurant called ION Sky if you like to have a refreshment, however you can of course also bring your own sandwich! Nice place and very good to combine with the Orchard Road area! The ION tower is near ION square. A lot of high end stores such as Prada, Tiffanies, etc are situated here. However also many galleries, like really good galleries! If you’re into art and don’t feel like going to a museum, enter one of these amazing galleries and check out the beautiful art they have on display! I’ve see some quite good painters displayed here such as van Gogh and a small drawing of Picasso!
Fort Canning is thé place in Singapore to learn more about the Singa History. By far, this outdoor museum is a great place to go to! Fort Canning is located on top of a hill, which can be quite a climb, and has a lot of nature surrounding it. There is a small fee to actually go into the fort, however this is not a must. There is a lot to see, learn and check out around the fort on the hill. Also, the national Museum of Singapore is very close to Fort Canning. Not free of admission though. And it has several very interesting Singapore points of interest for history and nature lovers. Fort Canning is situated between Robertson Quay and Orchard Road. A great stop to check out when you want to walk from the River to the number 1 shopping area in Singapore!
