Admire the beauty of the sunrise

What better way to welcome a perfect day in Singapore than to admire the beauty of the sunrise over the coastline. While there are many places where you can enjoy this picturesque scene we recommend you visit the Changi Boardwalk around 6 am to enjoy the spectacular view of the sunrise causing the calm sea waters to glisten like diamonds. The East Coast Park is another great option to catch a glimpse of the sandy shores greeted by the warm rays of the sun. The ships docking in the background will also look great in all the amazing photos you capture.

After feeling refreshed by the morning breeze and warm sun-rays, you could head down to East Coast Road where you can find the lovely coffeehouse called Penny University, a great stop for breakfast. This cozy little eatery is Muslim owned and is known to offer great tasting and affordable meal options. Their freshly baked bread with a plate of Turkish eggs is a great breakfast option to get you fueled up for the day.

So feel free to include a visit to the National Museum, Asian Civilizations Museum, Peranakan Museum, Reflections at Bukit Chandu, Singapore Art Museum and Singapore Philatelic Museum as part of your trip within Singapore.
