Where to Stay:
Orchard Road Area, with close walk to either the Orchard or Somerset MRT Station
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Orchard Rd.
Orchard Rd Area:
TONS of shopping above and below ground.
EAT: Ya Kun Kaya Toast is a must do (only eat Kaya Toast from Ya Kun)
Food Court in basement of Paragon Building has a good food court with a Ya Kun Kaya Toast, So Pho So Good, a Dutch Baby Place, Din Tai Fung which are all good food choices.
JiBiru across the street has a great beer selection and good food.
River Cruise – Catch at Clarke Quay. There is a Thirsty Beer Shop in the Liang Shopping Center which is just outside of the Clark Quay Shopping Area (Clark Quay has two walkways that cross in the middle. If you take a left in the middle as you walk away from the river it lead to the Liang Shopping Center across a street. Cross the bridge to Boat Quay and walk along the river for some cool food places
|URA Center Model|
Little India – Quick in and out – try eating at a hole in the wall.
|Coud Forest Waterfall|
Botanical Gardens – Mainly for the Orchid Gardens
Night Safari – Book ahead and consider a tour. This is one of the few places you need a taxi or bus to get to. They have a pretty cool buffet dinner there.
Explore and don’t be afraid to just wander in some random place for food.
Haw Par Village – almost made this a must do but it’s very weird but huge. It’s basically a crappy statues history of Chinese Myths. The 10 hells exhibit is disturbing and hilarious. It’s very close to an MRT station so you can do it quickly.
Food Names to Look For:
Seng Fa Bak Kut Teh (Seng Fa is the chain, Bak Kut Teh is the food (pork rib soup))
Fish and Chips
Lassa (a drink)
Kopi (Malaysian coffee with sweetened condensed milk)
