Mentioned in these guides

The vibrant city-state of Singapore is nestled at the tip of the Malay Peninsula. This tiny island nation is a harmonious blend where tradition meets modernity. Singapore has a captivating history and rich cultural heritage that is celebrated through its diverse blend of ethnicities, languages, and religions. Singapore was once a small, old fishing village on the edge of the jungle. It went through an incredible transformation and turned into the bustling metropolis and the global economic powerhouse that it is today. Despite its futuristic architecture, Singapore's history is preserved throughout the city such as its lush green spaces, colonial black and white bungalows, and Peranakan shophouses. Singapore has so much to offer. The world-class Changi airport, immaculate cleanliness, vibrant street food culture, efficient public transportation, low crime rates, and strict governance (most famously, the chewing gum ban) to name a handful. The only downfalls I can think of are the insane heat and humidity as Singapore sits right on the equator. So why local-ish? I first visited Singapore when I was 6-months old. My dad was born and raised in Singapore. Funnily enough, one of my mom's brothers has lived there for 30 years and we've had a handful of other family members (on both sides) live there over the years too. I've lost count of how many times I've visited but it's definitely one of my favorite places in the world and feels a bit like home. If you've never been to Asia before, Singapore is the perfect destination to start with. It's like a stepping stone to the rest of the world. Here are all my recommendations on what to do, see, eat, and drink in Singapore. Scroll to the bottom for an overview of everything you need to know before booking your trip to the Lion City. As always, I'm happy to help you plan a custom itinerary for your trip to Singapore! Just reach out to me directly (:

The vibrant city-state of Singapore is nestled at the tip of the Malay Peninsula. This tiny island nation is a harmonious blend where tradition meets modernity. Singapore has a captivating history and rich cultural heritage that is celebrated through its diverse blend of ethnicities, languages, and religions, but most importantly its food! Singaporean food has many influences from around the world but  Malaysia, Indonesia, China, India, and the UK. It sounds so random but it's the best amalgamation of cuisines from all those countries and more. What's particularly great about Singapore is eating out is actually very cheap! Singapore is known for its Hawker Centers, think a food court but without the dodgy food, where you can usually try Singapore's best-known dishes. You have to try Hainanese Chicken Rice, Nasi Goreng, Roti Parata, Char Kuey Teow but feel free to branch out from my favorites.  I first visited Singapore when I was 6-months old. My dad was born and raised in Singapore. Whenever we go, it's one big food tour ensuring that we eat our favorites at least one time before departing. Here are some of our go-to spots, in addition to a few other places that are highly rated that I haven't had the chance to visit yet. This guide focuses on my recommendations for the best food and drinks in the Lion City but as always, I'm happy to help you plan a custom itinerary for your trip to Singapore!
