Two full days in Singapore as part of world trip

We have two full days in Singapore in December as part of a world trip. Any suggestions as to best places to eat, drink, visit, shop.

Thanks
Jane

If your love seafood - East Coast Seafood.There are many food courts in Spore where you can try local dishes.
Drinks - Mohd Sultan Lane -many watering holes. Visit - Sentosa Island.
Shop - Orchard Road (X) Take a train (MRT) to go Toa Payoh or Ang Mo kio (bargains) Have a nice stay.

Sentosa is too expensive... U should try the world class Mandai Zoological Gardens and in the night, they have the Night Safari. (they are all beside each other)

I agree with yipsy - Sentosa is a rip off. The Night Safari at the Zoo is incredible.

Visit sentosa island, the aquarium is great.
DonŽt miss the night safari.
See Chinatown and try as many of the hawkers places as you can.
If you like shopping Orchard road would be another place to go to - if not leave it out and see the arab quarter, little india and relax at the pool of your hotel.
I hope youŽll enjoi Singapoore as much as we did.

I live in Singapore, and I can tell you, the Night Safari is not all that great. It's going to the zoo at night. Try the Botanical Gardens and the National Orchid Garden for a real treat. The zoo is lovely, as is the Mandai Orchid farm down the road. Definitely go to the Raffles Hotel for a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar. Absolutely must do the "hawker" centers for a real taste of Singaporean food culture. Let me know if you need any more info. Have fun. Jim

saying to go visit chinatown in singapore is like saying go visit braziltown in rio de janeiro.

there's 76% chinese in singapore.

the hell with sentosa island, unless you like waiting in lines, paying too much money for kiddie things, and seeing no culture.

yes, go eat the hawkers stalls, they are all cheap and good.

take a walk down boat and clark quay, and go to the chinese/japanese gardens, the zoo, hike in bukit timah and macritchie reservoir, and just walk like madmen.
