Singapore - Apple MapsSingapore is often presented as a serious, business city. But as a bustling commercial port, and major airport hub, it has soaked up cultures from east and west. And while its skyscrapers are growing at record pace to deal with its demand as a business center, they also show Singapore’s sense of humor – like the triple tower block, topped with a ship, topped with a garden, at Marina Bay Sands.

Chinese Culture

It’s quaint that Singapore has a Chinatown even though it is essentially a Chinese town. At first the narrow streets with their colorful shuttered houses strung with Chinese lanterns and emanating cooking smells are like walking into the past. But this is Singapore so Chinatown has its own free wifi.

The food market is a great place to go for an affordable meal, day or night; choose from one or more of the stalls and share a table with locals and travelers. The night market sells a lot of tat, but there are a few gems and it’s great fun. The Chinatown Heritage Center gives you an insight into what makes the place tick beyond just retail.
