10 best attractions in S’pore according to Tripadvisor & #2 is…MRT

For many Singaporeans, I’m sure you are familiar with our local attractions such as the Marina Bay Sands Sky Park, Singapore Zoo, Night Safari and Sentosa which are popular choices for tourists to visit when they are in Singapore.

Tripadvisor, a tourist review site well know around the world, has come up with a list of top attractions to visit in Singapore. But what will make you fall off your seat is the attraction that has been ranked second: the MRT.

That’s right, our MRT system beat other world-renowned attractions such as the Botanic Gardens and Singapore Zoo to come in second in the top 10 list of top attractions in Singapore.

After this hearing this piece of news, I bet that the first thing that comes to your mind is whether they are being serious or just joking.

But the truth is we do have an MRT system that performs pretty okay when compared to other countries whose commuters have it worse, given how these reviews are usually left by tourists who have been to our country.

Anyways, here is the list of top 10 attractions in Singapore according to Tripadvisor if you want to know more.


Gardens by The Bay

Gardens by The Bay was voted top on the list of top attractions in Singapore, with many positive comments by tourists who commented that the Supertrees in the attraction were a unique sight and the place gets better at night with the spectacular view of the night lights of Singapore.

To include our MRT system in the list of top attractions is something that will definitely make you question if this list is even legit. But the truth is that tourists love taking our MRT system as it often arrives on time, the price of a ride is affordable and the directions on how to take the MRT are easy to understand and provide a lot of convenience for tourists to explore Singapore.

Perhaps this will make you look at the MRT system in a different light, besides it breaking down once in awhile.


National Orchid Garden

It is no wonder why this attraction is popular among tourists, considering that our national flower is an orchid. Singapore is also a world famous orchid breeding hub since the 1930s and The National Orchid Garden can be considered our local version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame with many celebrities having hybrid orchids named after them.


Singapore Botanic Gardens
