One of Asia’s success stories, tiny little Singapore’s GDP consistently ranks it as one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Along with that wealth comes a rich culture borne of a multiracial population. Get lost in the mad swirl of skyscrapers in the central business district, be transfixed by the Bolly beats in the streets of ramshackle Little India, hike lush rainforest in Bukit Timah or just succumb to the retail mayhem of Orchard Rd. It’s affluent, hi-tech and occasionally a little snobbish, but Singapore’s great leveller is the hawker centre, the ubiquitous and raucous food markets where everyone mucks in together to indulge the local mania for cheap eating.
