Top 10 reasons we adore Singapore
EVERY city has its own vibe, something – or usually many things – that makes it unique and unlike any other place on the planet. Here, we’ve chosen the 10 things we adore most about Singapore.
As dusk falls, it’s a different kind of life in Singapore. Known for its swanky clubs – like Pangaea, Filter Members Club, and CÉ LA VI – these places promise a glamorous night out as you indulge in decadence and the hottest music by famous DJs. If you are looking for a dazzling but casual night instead, head to The Butter Factory at 1 Fullerton, Mink at Pan Pacific Hotel, or Zouk at 17 Jiak Kim Street.
Awesome local dishes
There’s no doubt about it – Singapore is a food paradise. Local favorites such as chicken rice, laksa, char kway teow and chili crab will leave your taste buds wanting more. Don’t forget the ikan pari bakar (barbecued stingray) and kangkong. For tasty char kway teow, head to Outram Park at Blk 531A, Upper Cross Street. Try chili crab, laksa and chicken rice at the outdoor hawker center at the Esplanade. For ikan pari bakar, swing by Chomp Chomp at Serangoon Gardens.
World-class posh restaurants
Life’s a gamble
Although Singapore’s Universal Studios is not as as big as, say, the one in Orlando in the United States, the rides are still as, if not more, exhilarating. The latest Transformers ride in 4-D is an experience. For the roller coaster die-hard fans, do give the Battlestar Galactica rollercoasters a try – whether you choose Human or Cylon, it’s a thrill you’ll never forget.
Rooftop bars with picturesque views
Being city-dwellers, one of the things we enjoy is beautiful views of skyscrapers. Some rooftop bars offer picturesque views of the city, so be sure to have a drink or two there. Check out 1-Altitude, Prelude, and Lantern. 1-Altitude is located at 1 Raffles Place, Prelude is located at 3 Fullerton Road, and Lantern is located at The Fullerton Bay Hotel.
