23rd March 2016:83/366 Local Flavour
Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come from as though it’s an entry in a travel guide.
My daily job is mainly giving suggestions on “What can I do in Singapore?” Of course I have some suggestions to introduce to visitors on what they can do here. Here are some places they could go for:
Marina Bay has the best architectural buildings. Starting with my previous workplace at Gardens by the Bay with Supertrees and conservatories. The iconic Marina Bay Sands, promenade to catch the city of Singapore lined up, the Helix Bridge, Singapore Flyer, Esplanade and many other buildings down the Singapore River.
- Heritage and Food
Lau Pa Sat definitely have the range of different kinds of food. Heritage places like Chinatown, Little India and Haji Lane/Arab St have their own culture and heritage touch respectively. Haji Lane premises also have many different type of cafes to try. Singapore’s heritage also can be found through museums like National Museum and Singapore Art Museum.
Most variety range of fun activities definitely comes from Sentosa Island where the beach, theme parks, exhibitions and outdoor adventure activities can be found.
The whole stretch from Orchard Road, Somerset & Dhoby Ghaut, Bugis Street, Jurong area and outlet shops of Jurong IMM or Changi City Point and even our 24hrs Mustafa Centre.
