Some backpackers and travelers may overlook Singapore due to its reputation for high costs, orderliness, and cleanliness (which some may not see as a downside). There’s also a misconception about its lack of tourist attractions. However, skipping Singapore on your Southeast Asia journey could mean missing out on a lot. Here’s why Singapore deserves a spot on your Southeast Asia itinerary.

Cultural Diversity

Singapore stands out for its diverse religious and cultural landscape, setting it apart from its neighbors. The country celebrates national holidays of various religions, offering travelers a chance to savor culinary delights from around the world while exploring different places of worship.


Singapore boasts a spotless reputation as one of the cleanest cities globally. The strict laws against littering and spitting contribute to its pristine streets free from unsightly mess. Despite some labeling it as too sterile, the cleanliness of Singapore’s streets is undoubtedly a plus.

The Marina Bays Sands Infinity Pool

A must-visit for those with a flexible budget, the Marina Bays Sands hotel features the world’s longest elevated infinity pool. Perched atop three towers, the view from the pool is breathtaking, making it a dream spot for photographers and Instagram enthusiasts. For a more budget-friendly option, head to C’est La Vie for a cocktail at a fraction of the cost compared to the hotel rates.

Hawker Centers

Singapore is dotted with hawker centers where you can enjoy a meal for under $10. These centers offer a wide array of food options, ranging from fresh seafood to local delicacies like laksa and traditional desserts. Popular choices include Maxwell Hawker Centre and Newton Food Circus.


Despite its modest size, Singapore hosts an impressive variety of restaurants serving cuisines from across the globe. Some restaurants even hold Michelin stars, making them excellent choices for those overwhelmed by the dining options available.

Orchard Road

Once known for its orchards, Orchard Road is now a premier shopping destination. With over 20 malls within two kilometers, it’s a shopper’s paradise offering designer goods and a diverse retail experience. Even in unfavorable weather, shoppers can explore the malls through underground tunnels connecting them, making shopping a convenient activity.
