Representing the spirit of modern Asia, Singapore is a progressive island where one can witness the vibrant fusion of cultures, ethnicity, communities and most importantly, people. The place is a complete package full of excitement, surprises and charm, especially for the first time visitors.
Singapore is a cosmopolitan city-state, which, over the years, has grown from its tag of a dull state to reinvent itself as a dynamic city and one of the Southeast Asia's most modern destinations. Spread 42 km (26 miles) east to west and 23 km (14 miles) north to south, today Singapore is one of the world's leading shipping and banking hub on the economic front. This garden city is also a melting pot of cultures, combining together different ideas, cuisines, new architectures going well with the gleaming hint of old school. One can witness the Chinese, Indian, Malay and European influence in the daily life of Singapore adding to its charm. The incredible shopping malls, classy boutiques, departmental stores on Orchard Road, the exotic elements of Chinatown and Little India and the world-class nightlife span across the spotless land of Singapore. Expensive with respect to South-eastern standards, the city offers a plethora of other options for entertainment such as Sentosa Island, Singapore Zoo, Botanic Garden, Marina Bay Sands, Tiger Balm Garden, Night Market etc. With picture-perfect skyline and city centre bustling with people, Singapore is an amazing destination offering everything a traveller could think of.

I went in around 8.30 and left around 12 so that should give you an idea about the crowds, also try and see the creatures of the night show first and then go for a tram ride because the trams run later in the night than the show or else by the time you finish your tram ride the creatures of the night show may be full or past it's last slot.
The night safari has an open sided tram that takes you around the park and lasts for about 30 minutes. The lighting in the park is made so to resemble natural moonlight so that the animals are reminded of their natural habitat. The creatures of the night show is a must see, but get there early because they have really long queues and limited slots.
I visited this one-of-a-kind theme park with my cousins and it was the best memory I have with them till date. After clicking the clichéd picture in front of the classic Universal Studios globe-like structure, we went on to spend the day visiting the rides and shows in the themed zones. My younger self was especially fascinated meeting characters from Shrek, the yellow lovable minions from Despicable Me and even Marilyn Monroe. We spent most of the day going on rides, including but not limited to rollercoasters, river-raft rides and ferris wheels. Watch out for exciting live street performances by your favourite characters!
