The food capital of the world
Combine a dash of tranquil gardens and inspiring natural surroundings, a pinch of sci-fi architecture, and a liberal sprinkling of international cultures, customs, and flavors. The result? The world’s busiest port and easiest place to do business, the place often nicknamed the Garden City, the one and only Singapore.
Sink your teeth into this foodie’s paradise—Singapore is a mouthwatering feast of flavors. Chinese, Malay, and Indian cuisines are the dominant influences here, but in a city filled with expats from across the globe, you can find amazing cuisine from all corners of the world. Be sure to try the unofficial dish of the city, chili crab. This sticky meal is a messy delight that will make your taste buds tingle. For a one-stop dose of international celebrity cuisine, head to the Marina Bay Sands, the world’s second most expensive building that’s home to no less than seven celebrity chef restaurants, not to mention a casino, hotel, mall, two theaters, two floating Crystal Pavilions, and an ice-skating rink.
If eating can be considered the national pastime in Singapore, shopping makes a decent case as the second most popular activity. Head to Orchard Road where miles upon miles of shopping malls await featuring everything from the trendiest fashions to the latest electronic gadgets.Download An Explorer Guide +
