Are 3 nights in Singapore enough?

If you want to see some of the best parts of Singapore, you might only need 3 nights. Singapore is a small city-state, and many of its best sights are easy to reach by public transportation or on foot.

During a 3-night stay, you can see the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, and the famous Merlion figure. You can also try the famous street food and go to the colorful Chinatown and Little India areas.

But if you want to learn more about Singapore’s history and attractions and go to the nearby islands or beaches, you should stay for at least 5 nights. 

This will give you more time to visit the city’s lesser-known neighborhoods, museums, and art galleries. You’ll also have enough time to take day trips to nearby places like Sentosa Island, the Singapore Zoo, or the Night Safari.
