Adventure Cove Waterpark

Marine life enthusiasts will be able to take a watery adventure at the park’s Rainbow Reef, an abode for schools of tropical fishes, or have a close encounter with hammerhead and silvertip sharks at the park’s Shark Seas habitat.
Youngsters can hone their sense of direction at the Wet Maze, an intrepid experience that features a maze with challenging obstacles on the first floor and a rope course on the second level.
By day, it’s home to thrilling water rides and encounters with marine life. But by night, it becomes a neon-lit paradise where you can network – after work. At Bluwater Bay, you can step inside a cabana for privacy. Or step outside and dance to tunes by a live DJ.

Marina Bay Sands SkyPark
This gravity-defying platform is one of the largest in the world. The 1.2-hectare SkyPark stretches longer than the Eiffel Tower laid down and is large enough to park four and a half A380 Jumbo Jets.
It houses a ticketed observation deck, lush gardens, top-notch restaurants and an exclusive, infinity-edge swimming pool with a legendary view.
The 150-metre pool, the world’s largest elevated body of water outdoors, has been designed with a vanishing edge. It is as if there is nothing between the swimmer and the skyscrapers in front.
Those taking a dip feel like they are swimming among the clouds, perched so high in the sky with the most majestic scenery at their feet. However, only hotel guests can swim in the pool and enter the SkyPark free of charge.
Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. Level 57, 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956. Monday to Thursday 9.30am-10pm. Friday to Saturday 9.30-11pm.
Opened in 2010, the Helix Bridge is the longest pedestrian bridge in Singapore and serves as a link way between Marina Centre and the Bayfront area. Its unique form is modelled after the double helix DNA, symbolising “life and continuity, renewal and growth”. Look out for the pairs of coloured letters ‘c’ and ‘g’, as well as ‘a’ and ‘t’ on the bridge, which represent the four bases of DNA—a fun detail that will please the science geeks among us.
Helix Bridge. Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 038981.
Daily 24 hours.
Gardens by the Bay
Bay South Garden is the largest of the gardens. Inspired by an orchid, the design resembles Singapore’s national flower, Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim. You can’t miss the massive Supertrees—Tree-shaped vertical gardens that are between nine to 16 storeys tall.
Stroll on the suspended walkway between two Supertrees to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the gardens. In the evening, catch the sky show of choreographed lights and sounds at the Garden Rhapsody amidst the Supertrees.
Gardens by the Bay. Marina Gardens Dr, Singapore 018953.
Catch a glimpse of Singapore’s most majestic icon, the Merlion, a mythical creature that’s half-fish and half-lion. The Merlion combines two elements of Singapore’s identity—its body symbolises the fishing villages of Singapore’s past, while its lion head is a symbol of Singapura (“lion city” in Sanskrit).
The Merlion, built by local craftsman Lim Nang Seng, was unveiled on 15 September 1972 by then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. The icon was originally positioned at the mouth of the Singapore River, but was later moved to its current spot overlooking the bay at the Merlion Park.
Merlion Park. One Fullerton, Singapore 049213.
Daily 24 hours.
Standing at 165 metres above ground is Asia’s largest observation wheel, the Singapore Flyer. Launched in 2008, the wheel is a favourite tourist attraction due to its vantage point offering stunning panoramic views of Marina Bay and th¬e city. Over the years, the Singapore Flyer has also become a significant feature in the backdrop of the FORMULA ONE Singapore Grand Prix Marina Bay Street Circuit.
Singapore Flyer. 30 Raffles Avenue, Singapore 039803.

With over 15 attractions for both kids and the young at heart, Wild Wild Wet is a great place to experience thrills and spills with the entire family. First opened in 2004, the water park has since expanded to over twice its size and launched two new rides.
Vortex—an 18.5-metre-high, 360-degree water slide—will certainly appeal to adrenaline lovers. Thrill-loving families who’re looking to bond and engage in some healthy competition with their loved ones should head over to the Kraken Racer, which features competitive mat-racing for up to four people.
The park even boasts a white-water rafting experience with Ular Lah—a super flume ride that challenges you to brave the rapids with five other companions.
