This metropolitan and sophisticated city never fails to impress the millions of visitors it receives from all over the globe. Singapore is a destination that always has something new to explore and enjoy.
A recent trip to Singapore was as usual memorable and it was on this trip that I decided to unwind by visiting new social venues and previously unvisited restaurants while leaving the shopping for another visit. This gave me an opportunity to discover so much more of what the city had to offer.
After checking in at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore,
I discovered the culinary options in the surrounding area alone were endless. The Fullerton Heritage is a dining and hospitality complex consisting of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier, The Fullerton Waterboat House, The Fullerton Pavilion, and Customs House
Lantern, situated on the top of The Fullerton Bay Hotel is a venue one ought not to miss. Regarded as one of the best rooftop bars in Singapore, Lantern provides a 360-degree panorama of the city and overlooks the stunning Marina Bay and its surrounds. It is best to visit in the evening while sipping on a fabulous cocktail or excellent wine and at the same time watching the light show from Marina Bay Sands. This is a daily performance that includes fireworks on special occasions.
Another nearby venue is Catalunya at the Fullerton Pavilion. Here the restaurant can safely boast one of the best Spanish menus in the city while offering a stunning waterfront panorama of Marina Bay. Catalunya is also a great viewing platform for the Marina Bay Sands light shows.
One Fullerton is the home of some of Singapore’s the best restaurants and here a variety of tastes are catered for.
One of Singapore’s major attractions is Merlion Park, sited in front of The Fullerton Hotel.
On this trip I had the opportunity to visit Tiong Bahru to see what they had to offer. It is one of the island’s oldest residential areas and its trendy cafes, bakeries and attractive shops have made the area very popular. Open Door Policy, Plain Vanilla Bakery, 40 Hands are just some of the famous places to visit here.
As the hotel is within walking distance to Makansutra Glutton Bay, I decided to sample the hawker food available there. This hawker centre is located near the Esplanade theatre, offering a delicious range of local specialties like the Hainan chicken rice, Singapore chili crab and many others.
