The recognition of Singapore as Asia’s food capitol is almost certainly an understatement. This dynamic island state is in my opinion a ‘world food capitol’! Not only that, shopping opportunities, entertainment venues and accommodation facilities are all up there with the top ten cities around the world. This is the place for families, gourmets and bargain hunters to really enjoy themselves.
For shoppers, Singapore has to be the ultimate destination. Singapore’s tenacity to turn itself into a modern state after independence has paid dividends on a Microsoft scale. There is not an international brand that has not seen the advantages of being involved at a retail level there. Why? Because the island has provided all the necessary infrastructure and facilities that make shopping visits a pleasure.
As a culinary destination Singapore surpasses anything I’ve seen anywhere else in the world. The choices here are endless. It is the Chinese, Indian, Malay and Western influence within this multicultural state that has produced the island’s smorgasbord of pan-global restaurants and eateries.
Iconic Orchard Road is the premier perambulation for visitors there. Multi story shopping complexes packed with affordable goods, boutiques selling middle to high fashion, coffee shops, restaurants and English pubs share the limelight with five-star hotels and outlets for Hermes, Dior, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and many more. There is something for everybody through a stroll down Orchard Road.
The Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is a luxurious hotel providing world class accommodation and supports its own convention or exhibition centre, shopping area, an Art Science museum, theatres, ‘celebrity chef’ restaurants, an ice skating rink, two floating Crystal pavilions and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines. Shops here include designer boutiques and an intriguing range of restaurants from celebrity to affordable will see all seated at the right table.
While in Singapore, don’t forget to make an evening visit to Clark Quay. Restaurants and bars line the waterway here and there is a festive buzz about the serious business of food and evening drinks. Eating should be fun and here one can get whatever one feels like. An evening here is an evening of merry entertainment.
Off to Singapore shortly are we? Be prepared to be dazzled, aroused, inspired and intoxicated with pleasure, and it you can make it there for the Singapore End of Year Sale. Well, say no more!
