Singapore, China Town

To help you navigate the city I picked two authentic neighorboods: Chinatown and Little India.

Chinatown is a reminder of Singapore's past and has temples and bustling food markets.

WHERE TO STAY

  • New Majestic Hotel:  each of the 30 rooms is individually designed. Best feature: the rooftop pool to cool off

CAFÉS  & RESTAURANTS

  • Nanyang Old Coffee: In Singapore coffee beans are roasted with caramel sugar and butter and served according to customer's preference. To order the right coffee they provide you with the much needed “Coffee Lingo” - we went for Kopi (coffee with condensed milk, sweet) and Kopi O (black coffee with sugar)

  • Maxwell Food Centre: we went there for lunch and were lucky enough to be pointed out the "must tries", including Chicken Rice, Cheng Teng and Ice Kacang.

WHAT ELSE

  • Massage: There are so many places to choose from- we went for BFM Your Spa Retreat (No. 29 Teo Hong Road, Opp. Outram Park MRT, Exit H) because it was close to the hotel and had this Day-Spa feeling to it 
  • Singapore City Gallery: tells the story of Singapore's remarkable transformation over the past 50 years and its planning efforts. Make sure to see one of the largest architectural models in the world (11m by 11m) and the Singapore cityscape by world renowned British artist and autistic savant Stephen Wiltshire on a 4m x 1m canvas.
