Singapore is a great place to visit!

Jump to last reply

Singapore is jam-packed, little island-state that is full of surprises, great food, and of course, shopping.

Please share some of your favorite places to stay, eat and shop there. Here are some of mine:

Raffles- Stay, if you can afford it, sip a cocktail there if you can't. It's right out of a Kipling novel. The valet wears a ruby red turban.

Chinatown- Exotic antique and herb shops. Get out of its touristy center and go along the back streets to find the treasures.

Little India-Great food, intriguing smells.

Orchard Rd-Shopping, shopping, shopping! Electronics are a pretty good deal here. We bought a beautiful, Canon Camera at 2/3 the price you'd pay in the U.S. Make sure the guarantees are international. (Also, check out Chinatown for camera buys. Try Alley Cameras, very professional and helpful staff.)

Grocery shopping 5 stories up- the lifestyle here is definitely "high-rise." Even the grocery stores are enclosed in megalithic towers!

Cricket anyone? -It was off-season when we were there, but the lawns and stadium were ever so grand. I'd definitely take in a game the next time I'm there.

Food Stalls-Try any of them. They are always cheap and good!

I'm sure there's more. Anyone have anything to add?
