A Singapore landmark, the Marina Bay Sands Skypark hangs poised atop the three towers of the waterfront Marina Bay Sands complex—and offers some of the city’s best views. Gain entry to the Observation Deck on the 57th floor and admire Supertree Grove, Gardens by the Bay, and so much more. Your ticket includes an audio guide, but do be aware that the Infinity Pool is reserved for hotel guests.

If you want an historical look at the Chinese history in Singapore I recommend you visit the Chinese Heritage Centre in Chinatown. This was an outstanding museum based in the old original building owed by a master tailor in the 1950's. It was an all encompassing journey through time with the static displays augmented by a very good audio unit. We were so engrossed in all the detail that we ended up spending over 2 hrs wandering up and down the three level building. It was a journey well taken.

There are two exhibitions: Chinese More or Less and Nantah Pictorial Exhibition. The first one addresses themes about what it means to be Chinese, especially for overseas Chinese and those who have been abroad for several generations. These themes are similar to some of the exhibits in the Peranakan Museum. The Nantah Exhibition is mainly old photos of Nanyang University, later Nanyang Technological Institute, and finally the present-day Nanyang Technological University. It is interesting to see if you are a student or staff at NTU, but might not be so exciting for a general audience. I recommend 1 hr for a quick overview, or 2 hours if you like to read every plaque :) Free entry for NTU staff and students.

As the film “Crazy Rich Asians” draws attention to those who have lived in Singapore for generations, the Chinese Heritage Centre provides the backstory. The tour of this house that was home to a tailor shop, a doctor’s office and about fifty people until the early 1960s shows their fortitude and resilience. This was the highlight of our visit to Singapore.

We decided to visit the Chinese Heritage Centre during our recent visit to Singapore. Our entry fee included an audio visual guide that was really useful for providing context throughout the tour. The centre has taken great effort to provide a realistic view of the way in which many Chinese people lived in the typical housing seen through Chinatown. From the tailor shop on the first floor to the tenanted cubicles rented out on the second floor it shined a light in the hardships of day to day living in Chinatown as relatively recently as the 1950s. The Heritage Centre is close to the Chinatown MRT and is air conditioned.

Did not know what to expect on our visit to the Chinese Heritage Centre in Singapore. What a nice surprise! It takes roughly an hour, accompanied by an audio tour. You are immersed in the daily lives of several Chinese immigrant families. Not a stuffy, hands off museum- you can enter rooms, look and in some cases, touch artifacts. A great way to experience the life of new arrivals in a strange country.
