There are many activities to be done and areas to be explored in Singapore. With the diverse range of possibilities, everyone is bound to find something to their taste, regardless of their interest. You may find more information about these here and here.
Here is a list of activities that are recommended by the local organising committee.
They include personalised tips that are hard to come by in any other travel sites!
See & Do
Be prepared to spend the entire day here because there are simply so many things to do! For the risk-loving, try riding on the roller coasters in Universal Studios Singapore or try out that probability model that you have been working on in the casino – both located in Resorts World Sentosa. Risk-averse individuals may choose to ride the beach trams along the island’s beaches while enjoying the sea breeze and sunset.
