Singapore Travel Guide

Overview

This small country has so much packed into it, it’s easy to think it’s larger than it’s area of 704 km². One minute you could be in a suit and tie at a meeting in the central business district and only 15 minutes later be with drink in hand on the beach, or even just 5 minutes later be dining along the beautiful Singapore river.

Food and Drink

You could never go hungry in Singapore, even if you only have $3 in your pocket, or are up at 4:00am you will always be able to find something to eat. Singapore is known as much for it’s inexpensive hawker fare as it is for it’s fine dining, there is something for everyone.

To taste the local cuisine, try one of the many outdoor food centers like Lau Pa Sat and Newton Circus. Even the food courts in malls are worth a visit and the Food Republics usually offer the best experience. Many of the tourist destinations have their own themed food centers including the Malaysian Food Street at Resorts World Sentosa and The Singapore Food Trail under the Singapore Flyer. To try a little bit of everything in a nice restaurant, many hotels have great Singaporean food buffets including The Good Ol’ Days of Singapore at Rasa Sentosa, the Ellenborough Market Cafe at Swissotel Merchant Court and Straights Kitchen at Grand Hyatt Singapore. Then there is one of the most popular restaurants for Singapore’s famous chilli crab, Jumbo.

Fine dining options are abundant in Singapore, with many celebrity chefs having an outlet here. Some of the highest end restaurants can be found at Marina Bay Sands and Dempsey Hill, while nice but not fine dining options can be found in areas like Chijmes.
