When you start planning your trip to Singapore, you may be wondering, “How many days should I spend there? I’m sure you will be asking yourself this question.
As it turns out, the best way to travel to Singapore is for three or four nights.
This article explains the points to consider when deciding between the two, the points to keep in mind when deciding on the number of days, and a model course.
It even shows you how to book at a discount, so please refer to it before you book!
The best way to travel to Singapore is for 3 or 4 nights
The royal days for a trip to Singapore are 4 days and 3 nights or 5 days and 4 nights.
Because of the 7 to 8 hour flight time from Japan, it is recommended to spend at least 3 nights.
Schedule for 4 days and 3 nights
I actually made a schedule of activities for 4 days and 3 nights.
I made it so that I could visit the sightseeing spots that I definitely want to keep.
|Day 1||Arrival in Singapore|
|Day 2||Sightseeing in Arab Street and Marina area|
|Day 3||Katong district, zoo, night safari|
|Day 4||Heading to the airport|
What kind of places are they? I’ve included photos of each spot in case some of you are wondering.
This spot is like the world of Aladdin.
The Gardens by the Bay, a futuristic botanical garden, and the Merlion Park are located here.
It became famous for its photogenic buildings.
This is the highlight of Singapore tourism.
This is the place where you can see the animals at night with excitement.
You can visit these famous destinations in 4 days and 3 nights!
If you make it 4 nights, you can stretch your legs to Sentosa Island
A minimum of 4 nights is recommended to visit Sentosa Island, where Universal Singapore is located.
It’s not too far away, but it’s about 30 minutes from the center of Singapore.
Also, there are many attractions and activities to see and do in Sentosa.
Adults can also have a whole day of fun when they come to Sentosa.
If you want to visit Sentosa, try to schedule your trip for 5 days and 4 nights.
I personally recommend 5 or even 6 nights
The royal road is 3 or 4 nights, but I personally felt that I would not get bored in this country even if I stayed 5 or 6 nights.
Singapore is one of the leading tourist cities in Asia.
Singapore is one of the leading tourist cities in Asia, and the government is putting a lot of effort into tourism, especially building tourist attractions on a scale that is unthinkable in Japan.
If you can stay longer, I recommend taking your time to explore this country!
For sightseeing in the marina area, it is possible to stay as little as two nights
I wish I could stay longer, but I don’t get that many vacations! This is a great way to see the world.
It’s possible to spend as little as three days and two nights in the Marina area, focusing on the Merlion and Gardens by the Bay.
|Day 1||Arrive in Singapore and see the show at Marina Bay Sands|
|Day 2||Stroll around Katong and Arab Street. Sightseeing in the marina area, including the Merlion and Gardens by the Bay.|
|Day 3||Buy souvenirs at Mustafa Center and return home.|
I really want to go to Singapore even though I only have a short time! If you only have a few days but want to go to Singapore, try to enjoy it around the Marina area.
HIS tours also offer a plan to depart late at night and stay efficiently for 4 days and 2 nights.
Prices ranged from the $300s, so check it out!
What to consider when deciding on the number of days to travel to Singapore
There are more tourist attractions than you can imagine, so pick out places to go beforehand
Singapore is a country with much more to see than you can imagine.
New tourist attractions are being built every year.
Before you book, check out the famous tourist attractions.
The more guidebooks you see, the more things you will want to visit, so it is recommended to check them out in advance.
If you don’t like hot weather, schedule well in advance
Singapore is said to be “the capital closest to the equator in the world.
It is a hot and humid country with high humidity.
To be honest, it was incomparably hotter than Thailand or Vietnam.
If you don’t like the heat, don’t pack too much into your schedule and make sure you have plenty of time to spare.
Nothing to do on the first and last day
Singapore is surprisingly far from Japan, taking 7 to 8 hours even on a direct flight.
Many of the cheaper tours are connecting flights, which can take up to 10 hours each way.
There is often almost nothing to do on the first and last day.
Please be careful when making plans.
