As I mentioned before, I recently moved to Singapore, I have been here for a few months and I like it more and more. I know that sometimes we travel with a limited budget but it is not always necessary to spend a lot of money to visit nice places.
I have made a list of the six places that you can visit for free!.
I hope it will inspire you to plan your trip, if you are visiting Singapore.
Thanks for visiting and reading my blog, good luck!
Are you coming with your family? with children? Or just alone? No matter how this place is suitable for all ages. No, don’t think that the photo was taken on an island inPolynesia or the Caribbean, I took it at Sentosa; an island that is only a few minutes away from the city center of Singapore, here you will find beaches, restaurants, activities and even a Universal Studios.
To get there you should take the metro, North-East Line or Circle Line and get off at Harbor Front station. From there you can walk along the Sentosa Boardwalk and reach the entrance to Sentosa, completely free, the access to the beaches is free of charge too, you can take some sandwich or buy frozen drinks at the Seven Eleven.
The attractions have different prices, you can find all that information here on the official Sentosa website.
2. Splanade, theaters on the bay:
It is is a complex where concerts are regularly held, there is a theater and several stages inside and outdoors. There is music and dance shows almost every day, on the agenda you can see the concerts that are marked as free, most of the time you do not have to book it in advance, just go in time to find a place.
To get there you have to take the metro to City Hall and walk for about 10 minutes following the signs towards Splanade or take the metro Splanade. The place is very nice, for a spectacular view visit the terrace (above the library).
More information can be found on the official Splanade website.
3. The library:
Libraries in Singapore are very well equipped, some are specialized in specific subjects such as music, art, material for young people etc.
If you are strolling through Central Singapore on Orchard road, I recommend visiting the Library on the 3rd and 4th floor of the Orchard Gateway Mall, Somerset subway station.
It is impressive the quantity and variety of magazines from around the world that they have, the bookstore is very modern with a loft style seating area and is open to the public for free.
You can grab a book or magazine a sit on one of the many relaxing areas without having to be registered member, there is all sorts of reading material, a travel section with a collection of Lonely Planet from several countries and travel guides with maps that will help you to plan your trip.
An oasis of tranquility, the air conditioning will help you to refresh yourself and take a pleasant break before continuing your journey.

4. Singapore City Gallery:
Here you can see the transformation and development of Singapore in the last 50 years. There are several models and audiovisual material that will take you through an architectural and historic tour of Singapore.
The entrance is free, you can combine this visit with a visit to Chinatown as it is about 15 minutes walk from Chinatown metro station, for more information you can visit the website of Singapore city gallery.
5. The Botanical gardens:
This is one of my favorite places in Singapore, the subway will take you directly to this place the metro station is Botanic Gardens. Admission is free, I recommend going early in the morning or late afternoon as it is very hot, this place is big and you have to walk a lot, it is good to bring an umbrella, cap, repellent, put on sun cream and bring a bottle of water.
If you like photography you will love it!
For more information, you can visit the website of The Botanical Gardens.
6. The gardens at the bay:
While it is true that to visit the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest, you have to pay, the entrance to the gardens at the bay is free.
You can get there by metro, take the Circle line or the Downtown line and get off at the Bayfront station.
The variety of plants, flowers and giant trees are impressive, it is worth visiting this place.
You can visit the Gardens by the Bay website for more information.
