1. Snap photos at the iconic Merlion Park
Cycle over to Merlion Park and take plenty of photos with the legendary mascot of the city - The half-fish and half-lion Merlion statue.

2. Visit the world's first floating Apple store
If you have yet to visit Apple’s floating store that is located right in front of the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, now is a great time to check it out!
This floating glass orb that kind of reminds us of a UFO 🤔 is said to comprise 114 pieces of glass with only 10 thin vertical mullions for structural support. Entirely surrounded by water, the store’s open show floor concept without pillars allows you to roam freely around the circumference and enjoy an unobstructed 360-degree panorama of the bay 👀. You can also check out curated Apple products and accessories or even receive personal technical support while you’re there!
Address: 2 Bayfront Ave, B2-06, Singapore 018972
Opening hours: 11am to 10pm, Daily
3. Wander over to the Helix Bridge
Follow the perimeter of the bay and cycle towards the Helix Bridge 🧬 - an ever-popular landmark that not only provides quick access to Marina Bay Sands for pedestrians coming from the City Hall and Esplanade area, but also offers remarkable views of the city skyline 🏙😍. Another great opportunity to take your OOTD shots!
Note: Do remember to dismount and push the bicycles when heading up the Helix Bridge.
4. Explore Gardens by the Bay
How can you miss out on Gardens by the Bay if you’re in the area?! Continue your cycling route towards this huge, futuristic park for a nature fix 🌷🌺. If you don’t wish to spend your money on the Flower Dome or Cloud Forest Dome, you can always explore its free-of-charge outdoor gardens such as the SuperTree Grove 🌴 or the Far East Organization Children’s Garden! The latter is perfect for families with children aged 12 and below as it offers a wide array of water play features 💦.
Tip: Head to the SuperTree Grove in the evening if you wish to catch its stunning Garden Rhapsody light and sound show! Look forward to the exciting shows lined up for 2021 ✨
