Singapore Pocket Guide

Images Of Singapore

A city, island and country, Singapore is known for many different things. Some consider it the most important financial centre in South-East Asia, while others think of it as a sterile city where everything runs like clockwork. Both these assumptions aren't that far away from the truth. This may not paint the most colourful picture in the world though. But don't fret - there is a lot to see. Singapore has a beach to bask in, stores to shop in, sights to snap at, and some of Asia's most fascinating neighbourhoods.

    Would stay there again

    Staff is friendly, beds are comfy, safes present, nice open atmosphere, breakfast available (incl.), facilities are okay.

    Insider Tip:Visit Tiger Balm Garden! All in one: disturbing and facinating, very recommendable.

    Have to go

    Singapore is an amazing and unique country. You only need a couple of days to see it all but it's definitely not worth skipping. It is very different to the rest of SE Asia and much more expensive though

    A city you never regret visiting

    Very well organised. I don't think there's a better MRT system anywhere else in the world. All places have map and guidance, which are very detailed and well presented.

    Insider Tip:Foods: laksa, half-boiled egg, chicken rice, durian. Places: Universal Studios, Marina Barrage + Garden by the Bay + Marina Bay Sands, Singapore zoo. Bottled water is expensive, especially in touristy places, so always bring ur own water.

    Honestly a bit underwhelming; food was alright. Only spent ~24 hours here and basically got a feel for it. Expensive compared to the rest of SEAsia but not as expensive as NYC.

    Insider Tip:Go to Maxwell's Hawker Center for good cheap food!

    Singapore is for Eaters

    Definitely check out Little India. It's a vibrant slice of Indian culture and one of the best neighborhoods in the city. The met is great, affordable transportation. Going Om is a great spot for drinks and coffee on Arab Street. The Botanical Gardens are amazing!

    Insider Tip:It's quite expensive compared to the rest of se Asia, but you can always eat for 5-6 Singaporean Dollars at the hawker centers. If you are on a budget this is key, plus it's the best food in the city!
