If you also believe Best things in Life are Free, you have come to the right place. In this Blog post, I will enlist some places which are free to visit in Singapore. Though Singapore is known for expensive tourists attraction there are (still) a few good places which are absolutely free and a “must see“. I have highlighted such places separately. This doesn’t mean other places are not worthy but they may not be relatively worthy if you have limited time in hand as a tourist.

This show happens in Sentosa island and not many people are aware of it. It is a show of audio visual technologies, and stunning light and water effects which illustrates the cranes’ graceful courtship ritual. Show takes place only once per day at 8 pm.
