Places in Singapore
Little India & Kampong Glam
Little India is Singapore trapped in its gritty past – it's frenetic, messy and fun. Spice traders spill their wares across its five-foot walkways and Indian labourers swarm into the area each weekend. Kampong Glam, the former home of the local Sultan, is an eclectic mix of Islamic stores and eateries, hipster bars and boutiques.
Chinatown & the CBD
While Singapore's Chinatown may be a tamer version of its former self, its temples, heritage centre and booming restaurant and bar scene make the trip there worthwhile. The CBD is best known for its stunning, ever-evolving skyline: rooftop bars jostle with old-school temples, all set against the financial heart that funds Singapore.
Colonial District & the Quays
The former British administrative enclave is home to a swath of colonial architecture, museums and the track for the Formula One night race. High rollers try their luck at Marina Bay. Bisecting it all, the Singapore River also connects the three quays – home to restaurants, clubs and bars.
