Singapore is a city-state that is one of the most interesting destinations for tourism. Singapore combines diverse cultures, its natural treasures, and a special charm that gives guests an incredible experience that cannot be compared to anything else.

This place is constantly evolving and trying to strike a balance between attracting progress and preserving nature, which is why Singapore can be considered the main center of environmentally conscious tourism. The Hindustan Times figured out what to see and where to go to explore the city's main attractions.

"Sustainable Singapore Stories" walking tour

"Sustainable Singapore Stories" is a 3-hour tour that showcases achievements in the development of local infrastructure with the involvement of environmental initiatives. Here, city guests can see firsthand how modern technology can integrate into nature without disturbing it and complement each other.

This synergy of technology and nature is reflected in the skyscrapers with glass and aluminum facades, each of which has an urban farm. More than 150 different types of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers are grown here.

In addition, tourists can see the Marina Barrage dam. This is an innovative reservoir that not only supplies water to Singaporeans but also helps mitigate the effects of flooding. At the same time, this place serves as a platform for family entertainment.

At the end of the tour, tourists will see a model of sustainable innovation - Gardens by the Bay. This is a real treasure for those who love walking in nature. This tour is designed to show how greenhouses with lush greenery can convert solar energy into electricity and illuminate the entire garden on their own.

Special curatorial tour "Birdland"

"Bird Paradise is Asia's largest bird park, which opened in 2023. It brings together more than 3,500 birds in 8 aviaries. Here, visitors can witness the daily work of veterinarians who take care of the animals living in the enclosures, as well as get a behind-the-scenes look at their efforts. A real bird hospital is also present, dedicated to ensuring the welfare and recovery of the birds.

This is an ideal excursion for families, as each visitor will be able to personally engage in the process of bird conservation. You can take part in interesting feeding sessions and, most importantly, have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the park's most majestic creatures. That is why such a unique adventure will definitely appeal not only to children but also to adults."
