There are many sights and attractions to see in Singapore, but in the interest of brevity, I’ll stick to the former. The following are a few of the best areas from which to take in the best views in Singapore.

Singapore Flyer

Perhaps the most attractive sightseeing option for couples on a date, the Singapore Flyer Ferris Wheel is strikingly beautiful (and impressive in scale), situated at the Southeast tip of the Marina Center. It is the tallest Ferris wheel in the world and features 28 air-conditioned capsules, some of which can be enjoyed in seclusion for an additional cost. The base ticket rate is approximately $30.

Tiger Sky Tower

The highest observation tower in Singapore, the Tiger Sky Tower rises to a height of 360 feet. It was completed in 2004, and offers one of the best panoramic views in Singapore. Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children.

Marina Barrage

Constructed at the confluence of five rivers, the Marina Barrage is a dam that crosses from Marina East to Marina South. The accompanying elevated park is open to the public and is a nice place to take in the sunset.

Benjamin Sheares Bridge

Another good place for a stroll in the twilight is the Benjamin Sheares Bridge. It is the longest and the tallest bridge in Singapore, and connects the East Coast Parkway with Marina Bay. It’s busy (and loud), but the views make it worth enduring a little cacophony.
