Best Asian Stop Over – Singapore


It’s easy to want to jet set into Singapore on your way around the world. Head off the plane and explore the city in no time with the help of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) or Light Rapid Transit (LRT). The entire capital city is crawling with infrastructure. The city is a mix of massive expressways, skyscrapers, and incredibly clean streets. If time is an issue head get on a Singapore River Cruise, it’s a refreshing and cool way to see the city center. If you have more time take the MRT to The Esplanade for a great walk around the entire Singapore urban splendor. Sample the local cuisine, a mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Indonesian.

Singapore Travel

 

What a combination. Dishes can range from something as simple as veggie fried rice to mouth watering spicy minced pork and egg noodles. The local restaurants will always have a special, go with the recommendation. If you’re stopping over for some last minute shopping, head directly to Orchard MRT Station. This one-way retail road extravaganza will somehow keep pulling your credit card out of your wallet.  Not only is it the President of Singapore’s address it’s also a club, coffee house, and café district. Spend an afternoon walking the famous Arab St in Singapore, the quirky collection of houses and window shops are a huge contrast to the rest of the city. Little India will also serve as a not so-Singapore side of town, with deafening Hindi, bright lights. and dirty streets. If you’re hungry for Indian walk over to Tekka Market for local fare and market shopping.
