  • In this very modern city it is nice to find some old-fashioned charm and architecture. Also a good place to find a simple restaurant, which is what we did for lunch.

  • Good for some souvenir shopping. Most of it is street shoppin but it's very lively at night. Sellers behave well unlike in Hong Kong where they start abusing if you try and don't buy. A go to place to buy fridge magnets, luggage tags, Singapore Lion miniature and other Nick knacks.
  • A new world! Cultural experience. Best for shopping. Lots of food joints here.
