A blend of East and West, old and new, natural and man-made, and a food lovers' paradise

Singapore’s diversity has created a dining scene that is second to none. Demand, sophisticated tastes and high expectations mean there are myriad choices, with high standards at all levels from hawker fare to fine dining. And while exploring Singapore’s foodie trails, you’ll experience the city-state’s cultural melting pot. Combine sight-seeing trips to world-class landmarks like Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa with fact-finding feasts 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. Singapore is a well-connected city, so you can feel free to wander far and wide without worrying you’ll end up stranded.
