Destinations / Singapore
The Garden City of Singapore is a harmonious blend of cutting-edge technology, diverse cultures and traditions. It's a clean city with little crime and an abundance of green spaces with over 50% of the tiny country covered in greenery.
Singapore is a shopper's paradise with shopping coming second to eating as the national pastime. Most areas in Singapore offer fantastic shopping like Orchard Road, a 2.2km stretch of road filled with shopping centres. Most shops are open 10am-10pm and some open until midnight the last Friday of the month!
As mentioned, food is a huge part of life in Singapore as it's a melting pot of cuisines from around the world. One of the must-try dishes to sample during your stay is chilli crab, which is a whole crab covered in a sticky chilli sauce with a side of mantou buns, which are small sweet buns that have been deep fried. The most popular places to eat are hawker centres such as Newtown Circus, Gluttons Bay and Lau Pa Sat. It's like a food market and the ultimate local foodie experience in Singapore.
