Singapore is a relatively young country, as it gained its independence only in 1965, and more or less since then, it has been developing rapidly. It is a very highly developed country, which makes it stand out from its neighbors. If you are traveling to Singapore in the near future, be sure to read this article!
What is needed when entering this country?
When traveling to Singapore for tourism from most countries in the world, you do not need a visa. You can stay in Singapore for up to 90 days, but you will need to present a valid travel document such as a for example passport, and a return or round-trip ticket. If you are traveling from the African or South American regions, you must also have the yellow fever vaccine.
What to visit while traveling to Singapore
Singapore consists of about 60 islands, but its overall area is small. Most of the most famous tourist attractions can be visited within 2-3 days, but if you want to get a better idea of the culture and see the life of the locals in this country, it is worth preparing a longer time. Singapore’s landmark is of course the Gardens By The Bay, a botanical garden with giant tree-shaped buildings decorated with various plants. If you like the theme of nature, you should also visit the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A very famous image that we associate with this country is also a hotel with three skyscrapers that entirely resemble the shape of a boat. On top of the hotel, there is a swimming pool known on Instagram, but only the hotel’s guests can swim in it. Tourists can go up to the 57th floor of the building and observe the panorama of the city from there.
