So you have 4 days in Singapore! Don’t worry, this Singapore 4 day itinerary will help you discover everything the country has to offer.
Singapore is a tiny country located just below Malaysia. While it only takes around 40 minutes to travel from one side of the country to the other, it is still important to have a Singapore Itinerary. This will make sure you hit all the right area, sights, and light shows the city has to offer. There are many serviced apartments that make staying in the city affordable.
In this post, I will guide you on the perfect Singapore Itinerary for 4 days.
Why Visit Singapore?
But before we get to the Singapore Itinerary I want to talk about a couple of reasons why I love Singapore.
The Atmosphere – Singapore has an entirely different atmosphere than anywhere else in the rest of Southeast Asia. It has a lively, almost futuristic buzz throughout the city.
The Food – Another reason I love Singapore, and those that have been will agree, is that food. The city is famous for Hawker Stalls where you can grab a variety of different foods from all over the world.
Singapore Itinerary 4 Days
Day 1 – I suggest taking your first day in Singapore slow. Enjoy trying snacks at local food vendors, wandering into shops, and walking around the city. When you get hungry enough for an entire meal head to Little India and indulge yourself. After your lunch, you can work off those calories by exploring the great shopping and temples around Little India.
After Little India head to the Asian Civilizations Museum. This is the oldest museum in Singapore and houses national treasures like the Singapore stone which dates back almost 1,000 years.
At 8 P.M. head to the waterfront to catch the spectacular light show from the Marina Bay Sands. ( On Fridays and Saturdays there is an encore light show at 11 P.M.)
I found the best spot to watch the light show is by the Merlion statue.
Day 2 – First, enjoy the morning. If your like me that means a good book and a couple of pots of coffee ( I am a coffee addict). Once you are caffeine fueled, it is time to head back out into Singapore. If you want to do, some more shopping take a bus or cab to Orchard Rd. ( Even Lonely Planet says ION Orchard is a shoppers paradise.)
Next, head to Chinatown. – I would wait until eating until I get there. Take some time to explore the area of the city and check out the shops.
After Chinatown, I would head back to your hotel to relax ( No 4 day Singapore Itinerary is complete without a little relaxation time). However, if you don’t feel like relaxing then there more things to see around the city such as the Trick Eye Museum, or Mt. Faber Park.
At 7:45 p.m. head to the Garden by the Bay to experience an authentic sound and light show. This was one of my highlights of visiting Singapore.
Day 3- We will use day three to get catch any last minute sites we missed. Hire bikes to get a good view of the city while traveling around to the different spots like Singapore Flyer, and the Tiger Sky Tower.
Day 4 – The last day will be relaxing. After breakfast hop on the monorail and head to Sentosa Island where you would spend most of the day. Whether you are after attractions, beaches, or nature, they are easy to find on Sentosa.
Pick the activities that look fun for you and have a fantastic day choosing your own adventures in Singapore.
For your last evening in Singapore, and if you have the budget, go to the Marina Bay Sands Observation Deck. From the top of the deck treat yourself to a birds-eye view of the city and lets you reflect on your time in the city.
Singapore is an amazing city. This Singapore Itinerary for 4 days will take you through all the highlights of the city while allowing you to discover the vibrant atmosphere the city has to offer.
