Sri Mariamman Temple

If you’re a total history buff, then you’ll definitely enjoy visiting the Sri Mariamman Temple, which dates all the way back to 1827 and is actually the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore. Visiting this beautiful building is a great way to get to know Singapore’s history a little better; the temple was once the only place in which Hindu marriages could be authorized. Open daily from 7 a.m. until 12 p.m. and then again from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., the temple is located on Yishin Avenue, which is fairly central.

Night Safari

As if Singapore wasn’t amazing enough, it’s also home to the world’s first ever Night Safari. It’s open every day from 7:30 p.m. until 12 a.m., and has all sorts of events and excursions taking place, including ‘An Evening In The Wild’. Start your adventure with a cocktail whilst meeting frogs and other creatures of the night before taking a trip through the rainforest in a caravan to encounter more nocturnal animals. After the trip, guests can enjoy a 3-course gourmet meal and be enchanted by the fire-eating display. Definitely a must for those visiting Singapore!

    I need to go back to Singapore…it’s so long since I went. Last time I was there, I fell off a podium (dancing) in a nightclub and couldn’t walk the next day so got very happily drunk on Singapore Slings in Raffles 🙂
