It depends on what kind of traveller are you. 

If you are looking for a touristy experiences, Resorts World Sentosa is a must-see. Spend around 3 to 4 days there. Then there is Gardens by the BaySingapore FlyerMarina Bay Sands,Chinatown,Clarke Quay etc. 

But if you are looking to experience the real Singapore, head over to toolocal.co to find unique local experiences and a local friendly host.

It really depends on what kind of traveler you are and what you like to do. If you intend to do some more serious shopping in Singapore, then I would leave it for the final days of your trip since you don't want to carry and travel with everything you bought first few days for the rest of your trip. If shopping is off your list then maybe price of flight ticket can help you decide as well. Go first wherever it is cheaper if money matters to you.

Singapore is definitely a nice city to explore and a lot of things to do and see. I would say for an average traveler 2-4 days stay should be enough with 2 days rushing through things.

Must see things, again very personal choice and up to everyone's taste, but just a few to recommend:

  1. Singapore Botanic Gardens and National Orchid Garden

  2. If you like amusement parks and want to have some fun go to Sentosa Island where you have multiple attractions like revolving Tiger Sky Tower from where you can see entire Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium & Adventure Cove Waterpark is very cool place to see marine life in a huge water tanks.

  3. There are many museums and galleries you can visit (Singapore Art Museum, National Museum of Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum ...).

  4. Singapore is mix of three major cultures (Chinese, Malay and East Indian) and so different religions (Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity). You have a great opportunity to visit many temples with great architecture pretty much for free.

  5. Food is really great and you will not be disappointed. Either you prefer a nice restaurant or just a regular food court there is plenty to choose from so certainly take that opportunity once there.
