Singapore Itinerary for 2 Days 

If you happen to be in Singapore or is staying in Singapore and thinking about Singapore itinerary for 2 days – what to do and where to go – you’ve come to the right place! 

With 48 hours in Singapore, you will have to make a decision of how you want to spend that time in Singapore from the variety of choices that you have:

  • Malls: go all out with your shopping spree at Singapore malls
  • Food: go for the best foods you can possibly find to eat in Singapore and stuff yourself happy!
  • Tourist Attractions: you really want to see for yourself all of the amazing structures and architectures that you have also seen in photos (like “avatar” looking structures or the “ship” on the building?)
  • Chill out: you really like to just kick back, relax and just have a really easy time in Singapore 
  • Nature: this is discover the “other side” Singapore that many locals and expats love about Singapore as well.
  • Unique: go for the more secluded, unique and/or quiet places that not a lot of tourists frequent

Now depending on your travel styles, you can really do a combination of many of these things I’ve mentioned here, but since you have 48 hours, here are the things I’d definitely check out in Singapore!

Let’s follow the schedule!

Day 1

For our day one, let’s explore some of things we’d definitely go for a nice full-day trip in Singapore:


  • Have a nice breakfast at your hotel or if you’d like to try some nice, local & traditional breakfasts with kopi (coffee), soft-boiled eggs and toast. 
  • If you’re up early and want to check out a really nice park to start the day, I’d go to Botanic Gardens! (Accessible via Botanic Gardens MRT)
  • After that, you can definitely check out one of the local malls nearby (check out this post)


Have some lunch nearby – there are quite a few options that you can opt for:

  • check out brunch places nearby (e.g. Atlas coffeehouse) or go further down to get some wholesome foods at Open Farm Community
  • for more local foods, I’d go down the road to Newton Food Center


The lunch places are close enough to touristy spots so you can definitely explore these spots:

  • Explore the Fort Canning Park
  • Enjoy the sky view of Singapore from the Singapore Flyer (before evening)
  • After Singapore flyer, walk through Helix Bridge and enjoy the afternoon
  • You can definitely go into Marina Bay Sands afterwards if you find it warm outside from all the walking.


I’d choose to spend your evening either at the Clarke Quay / Boat Quay areas or Marina Bay Sands and beyond

  • Marina Bay Area: walk through the cool evening of Singapore’s most iconic places – Marina Bay Sands, Supertree, Cloud Forest and Marina Barage.
  • Pro tip for Marina Bay area: enjoy a nice dinner @ Satay by the Bay for some nice foods by the bay!
  • Clarke Quay / Boat Quay: enjoy a lazy evening nearby the Singapore river at Clarke Quay/Boat Quay, take a walk towards the Elgin bridge towards the Parliament of Singapore and the Asian Civilization Museum area
  • Pro tip for Clarke Quay area: take a nice boat ride from Clarke Quay towards Marina Bay. Check it out here.

Day 2

Hopefully day one was fun and meaningful for you and your loved ones! Now it’s day two of our Singapore Itinerary for 2 days and your last day in Singapore, so let’s get going!


Apart from the local Singaporean breakfast fare that you had enjoyed yesterday, let’s explore a little more on what Singapore has to offer for breakfast.

If you miss western breakfasts, I’d go for brunch. Some great spots I’d recommend are Wild Honey, Common Man Coffee Roasters, Tolido’s Espresso Nook, Toby’s Estate, Sarnies. Check out this post for more!


Let’s explore the Sentosa island today and enjoy some of the amazing tourist attractions, sights and historical landmarks.

  • Universal Studios
  • Fort Siloso Skywalk
  • Madame Tussauds Singapore
  • Mega Adventure Park
  • S.E.A Aquarium
  • Sentosa Nature Discovery
  • Palawan Beach

Note that if you have more time in Singapore, you could easily spend 1-2 days here on Sentosa Island with your friends/family.


since you’re already in Sentosa, enjoy some of the great selections of lunch available at the local tourist attractions!


Hope you’ve had fulfilling journeys of long walks in Singapore’s nature and sightseeing spots on day one. Now let’s get going for some shopping today?

Check out the top 20 list of shopping malls I’ve written about here as well!

  • Orchard malls (Orchard & Somerset MRT) – you can come here for some high-end shopping as well as fashion, electronics. You name it, they most likely will have it.
  • Dhoby Ghaut mall (Dhoby Ghaut MRT) – this is a great mall to explore for other stores that may not be at orchard malls like home stores (e.g. Spotlight), game stores & art stores. They also have local fashion brands here as well.
  • Raffles City Shopping Center (City Hall MRT) – I’d say this is an upscale shopping experience with Robinsons and a mix of high-end and standard stores, such as Timberland, MUJI, AESOP & Nespresso. Check out their full stores here
  • Funan Mall – recently renovated in 2019, this mall has become a very interesting place to be shopping at, given its very different and unique stores & shopping experiences you’ll find here, such as audio technology (e.g. Bose, Audiotechnica, Bowers & Wilkins), Foldable bicycle store (Brompton Junction), technology (e.g. Courts, Dell, DJI, Dyson), Fashion (e.g. Fossil, G-shock,. They even have cooking studio (ABC Cooking Studio) & stage theater (Wild Ride). And, of course, there are wide selections of foods available here, such as Kopitech (Kopitiam but with tech twist), Guzman y Gomez mexican food, Hawkerman, Hot Tomato, Collin’s Gastro dining) and some are unique as well (e.g. Afuri, Ajumma’s, Bizen Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse, Carl’s Jr).
  • Suntec City Malls / Fountain of Wealth / Millennia Walk


There’s quite a few choices I’d definitely spend my evening in Singapore as a tourist with short amount of time:

  • Marina Bay Sands Singapore – you can enjoy the free and easy evening at the waterfront area of Marina Bay Sands and enjoy the SPECTRA – a light and water show as well as paying a small fee to get up to the Sands SkyPark Observation deck.
  • Sentosa & Siloso Beach – after your afternoon shopping  and freshening up for dinner, you can head out to Sentosa again for dinner and evening delights & amazing shows and activities – e.g. Magical Shores at Siloso Beach, Cable Car Sky Network Tanjong Beach Club

GK is a curiosity-driven traveler who discovers places through its natural beauties, histories and people's stories. A perfect travel plan for GK and his family would be a great coffee to start off the day before taking in the breathtaking views of landscapes and horizons with some hikes in between and toppling it off with some great photos of the places and people. And how can you forget great local & fresh foods to truly be immersed and inspired by what the world has to offer.
