Singapore Tatler Best of Singapore - - Editor’s Note - – Melissa Gail Sing, Special Projects Editor

What de­fines an ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ence? Be­yond im­pres­sive prod­ucts and ser­vices, one might say it’s about be­ing the first to try a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new treat­ment or get your hands on an ex­clu­sive col­lec­tion even be­fore it hits the shelves, cus­tomi­sa­tion to the nth de­gree, gen­uine care and hos­pi­tal­ity that makes a stand­out shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence, from the in­te­ri­ors right down to the lit­tle touches that make you feel like roy­alty—think sip­ping a flute of cham­pagne while pe­rus­ing fab­ric swatches for your be­spoke suit. Adding to the list, I say that it should also be life-chang­ing. The 13th edi­tion of Sin­ga­pore Tatler’s Best of Sin­ga­pore is ded­i­cated to such ex­pe­ri­ences—the kind that change and en­hance your life.

As a trusted life­style guide to the best shops and ser­vices in Sin­ga­pore, Best of Sin­ga­pore 2018 puts in your hands a cu­rated com­pen­dium of 144 mer­chants across 40 cat­e­gories who are the finest in their class. From the best spas and most beau­ti­ful wed­ding venues to be­spoke travel concierges, patis­series and pre­mium TCM cen­tres, ev­ery en­try has been re­searched, tried and tested by dis­cern­ing read­ers and ed­i­tors, and found to meet Sin­ga­pore Tatler’s ex­act­ing stan­dards.

Aside from a handy direc­tory of the win­ners, this guide in­cludes en­gag­ing ar­ti­cles con­tain­ing in­ter­views with the brands as well as tes­ti­mo­ni­als from prom­i­nent clients that high­light just what makes these mer­chants a cut above the rest. It’s no won­der it has been de­scribed as the es­sen­tial life­style com­pan­ion for both lo­cals and tourists seek­ing the best that our lit­tle red dot has to of­fer. For your con­ve­nience, you can ac­cess the full list of win­ners at Sin­ga­pore­tatler.com.
