- What to do in Singapore?
Clarke quay for some happy hour beers is a good laugh, the area around there is so vibrant. Go eat at one of China towns hawker markets after.
We did the hop on and off bus tour, explored the botanic gardens, little India, orchard road etc. Just wander around the downtown waterfront near marina bay, amazing in the evenings.
We went to raffles for a Singapore sling, I know it’s cliched and pricey but it was the best cocktail I’ve ever had!Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
Not been for a good few year but give Jumbo’s a go for some first rate crab. Its proper get a bib on and get stuck in with your fingers stuff. I’ve also had Jellyfish somewhere near there. Unusual to say the least. Also if you really want to try some other rank local delicacies just so you can say you’ve done it, try some Durian fruit. Its unique to say the least.
And for nightlife…as already suggested, you’ve got plenty of time to experience the four floors! You can’t leave Singapore without having had a look. Muddy Murphies opposite is a good Irish bar too.Posted 4 years agothetallpaulSubscriber
Get hold of a Rough Guide/Lonely Planet. There is so much to do that you will have problems choosing.
In 2006 Mrs TTP and I spent a couple of days there on the way to NZ.
We had a beer in Raffles, but as the Singapore Slings were pre-made we went over the road and had the best cocktails in a little bar looking at the hotel at a fraction of the cost.
Harbour Boat trip, food, Sentosa Island, food, shopping (we didn’t find it that cheap), food.
There was a micro-brewery near the Fullerton Hotel that was nice.
Little India was fun. Never been served curry by a topless man before.
We really enjoyed Singapore and would go again, but spend more time there.Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Eat at the Hawker Food Courts.
The crab? Oh yes, the crab…! Long Beach up at Dempsey is my fave for that.
Also, food related – Din Tai Fung is a MUST! As is sipping beer at Brotzeit upstairs afterwards, as Ben of this parish will attest to…
Other than that, SIN always feels a little sterile to me. Like Canary Wharf with the death penalty. My weekends there were either sitting by the hotel pool, or the occasional trip to Sentosa. Zoo’s worth a punt, though.Posted 4 years agoroggMember

Nail on the head! It’s great for a short visit, but god I wouldn’t want to live there. No real edge to it at all, very conservative.
Where to go in addition to what others have said – give Sim Lim Square/Tower a go for all your tech needs, and try Bugis Market for cheap tat if you’re buying presents for back home.Posted 4 years agotheblackmountMember
Hire yourself an mtb and go ride @ Bukit Timah NR (you can ride out from the town centre if you’re feeling brave enough to tackle the traffic)
The main trail is just a case of following your nose but there’s nice sneaky stuff in there as well (needs local knowledge)Posted 4 years ago
