SIN­GA­PORE

The Peak

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Peak Expert -

Fifty one years since its in­de­pen­dence, Sin­ga­pore has grown to be one of Asia’s lead­ing fi­nan­cial, cul­tural and tourism cap­i­tals. Re­ally, who would have guessed that the re­source-scarce is­land at the south­ern tip of the Malay Archipelago would be­come one of the Four Asian Tiger economies? With so much progress and de­vel­op­ment over the past few decades, it’s amaz­ing how the is­land na­tion has man­aged to stay true to its cul­tural her­itage, with in­sti­tu­tions de­voted to pre­serv­ing the Per­anakan cul­ture, while cel­e­brat­ing the in­flu­ence and beauty of the in­ter­na­tional art scene (ART & CUL­TURE – MU­SE­UMS, GAL­LERIES & MORE).

As such, it is only fit­ting that we pre­pared this com­pre­hen­sive guide for the best of Sin­ga­pore, from tow­er­ing sky­scrapers and his­tor­i­cal colo­nial build­ings to lush botan­i­cal gar­dens (EXQUISITE EX­PE­RI­ENCES – OUT & ABOUT) and in­cred­i­ble ar­chi­tec­tural struc­tures. De­spite its size, there are cer­tainly plenty of things avail­able for a roaring good time in the Lion City – hap­pily at­tested by movers and shak­ers of their re­spec­tive fields, who share their fond­est mem­o­ries and go-to spots in the world’s only is­land city-state. We also rec­om­mend where you can find the best flavours of Sin­ga­pore, from the up­per ech­e­lons of the din­ing scene (FOOD & FLAVOURS – FINE DIN­ING) to the de­li­ciously hum­ble hawker fare (FOOD & FLAVOURS – LO­CAL). If you need a hint, then con­sider this your ul­ti­mate go-to guide for the finer things in life worth ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. En­joy Your Sin­ga­pore, as they say; you’ll def­i­nitely keep com­ing back for more!
