🇸🇬 Singapore | The Essentials

1. Where to Stay? 💤

Civic District

When it comes to location, we're favouring practicality in Singapore. It's small enough to explore on foot, so if you're centrally based in the Civic District you can find some of Singapore's best museums and galleries. You'll also be in walking distance of Orchard Road for the shopping, the bars of Clarke Quay and the scenery of Marina Bay.

2. What to do/ see? 🗺

Explore the futuristic park, Gardens by the Bay

It's an obvious one but you can't stop off in Singapore without exploring Gardens by the Bay. If you're taking our advice - head there for sunset so you'll catch this magnificent place in the golden hour and the first light show which starts at 7.45pm.

3. Where to eat? 🍽

 Telok Ayer Market (Lau Pa Sat)

After you've worked up an appetite touring Gardens by the Bay, make the 20 minute walk across to Telok Ayer Market. Recently named one of the most expensive cities in the world, you can still eat incredible yet affordable food at Singapore's numerous Hawker Centres. Our favourite - the row of street food at Telok Ayer Market selling their Satay skewers.

4. Where to drink? ☕

CÉ LA VI, Marina Bay Sands

57 floors up at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, it's one of the best views you can find across Singapore. A cocktail will set you back roughly £13-14 ($17-18) but that's the same price you'd pay for access to the Marina Bay Sands, Skypark. In our estimation - CÉ LA VI is the better value of the two if you want the sky high views.

5. Where to take that Instagram worthy photo? 📸

People's Park Complex, Chinatown

Rumour has it that you now need a permit to enter the car park in front of this colourful high-rise building. Not to be defeated, you can still work those angles from further afield if you want to discover a more industrial side to Singapore.
