Singapore – Top Places

Clarke Quay

One of the two main lively quayside areas, Clarke Quay is full of vibrant bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the river side views. The area is fit for a theme park with multi-coloured buildings complete with wooden shutters and all undercover so you can enjoy the atmosphere even in the rainy season.

Boat Quay

Further down the way is Boat Quay with restaurants lined with live seafood tanks and a Victorian English pub - The Penny Black. Further along the river is where the bay opens out and is where you'll find the classic Singaporean landscape you'll have seen in all the magazines. Marina Bay Sands Hotel in front of you, Singapore Flyer to your left and Merlion to your right.

Orchard Road

Orchard Road runs all the way down the centre of the city and is home to a range of glitzy shopping malls. Singapore can be an expensive place to eat out and so a cheaper option is to take advantage of the many stalls and hawker centres within the shopping centres.


Another cheap and tasty place to eat is Chinatown, an area of colour, it has all the food you can dream of interrupted by traditional temples and markets. Highlights are the aptly named Chinatown food street where every stall offers something different and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

Little India

The Indian equivalent to Chinatown, Little India, is also a cultural hub honouring its namesake. It is where you will find the cheapest accommodation and the best Indian food.

Sentosa Island

Via a pleasant walkway or a scenic cable car it's not a long journey to reach Singapore baby island, Sentosa. Sentosa Island is like one giant activity centre. There are theme parks, animal encounters, there's a Madame Tussauds, beaches and the greatest bit of plastic with wheels - the Luge plus tonnes more. Here's the website to see for yourself
