A paradise of multiculturalism and cuisine, Singapore is a blend of East and West, old and new, natural and man-made and, above all, food and drinks

Singapore’s diversity ensures that its dining options are second to none. Demand and heightened tastes and expectations have given rise to myriad choices, ranging from hawker fare to fine dining. Visitors can pair their activities with explorations of the Singapore’s foodie trails to experience the city-state’s cultural melting pot. Singapore is a well-connected city so visitors can range far and wide without any concern that they’ll end up stranded. Pair your trips to world-class landmarks like Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa with chow-downs in the ethnic precincts of Chinatown, Kampong Glam and Little India.

To enjoy the lush greenery for which the Garden City is known, head to the northern tip of the island. Explore Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve – where you may cross paths with monitor lizards and migratory birds – and seek out farms and organic restaurants in the nearby Kranji countryside.
