A Singapore Food Journey
Singapore’s food scene is a national treasure – a place where humble street hawkers hold Michelin stars, markets burst into the street in a haze of smoke and sizzle, and you can find a meal to make you weak at the knees no matter your budget. This taste bud tempting tour will showcase a dining scene that goes beyond the table. From the lost art of ancient food trades to the glittering lights of Marina Bay – it’s sensory overload time in Singapore.
Michelin Street Food + Singapore Slings
Prepare to touch the ground running in sassy Singapore. A private transfer will collect you at the stunning airport before whisking you to Robertson Quay and your sleek boutique home – The Warehouse. The old spice warehouse has been transformed into a lofty, cool hotel that seamlessly blends tomorrows designer touches with yesterdays past. Think exposed brick, industry lighting and original masonry walls.
Take an afternoon to explore the bright lights of Singapore at a soft pace. Splurge on fabulous wares down on the internationally acclaimed Orchard Road and seek out the world’s cheapest Michelin starred meal. The street hawker with humble beginnings, Liao Fan, offers a famously tender, deep brown and gorgeously glossy chicken and rice dish to make you weak at the knees.
Celebrate your first sunset with a Singapore sling grazing the rooftop bar at the trendy Fullerton Bay Hotel. From these heights you can gaze out at the laser like beams and glittering colors of Marina Bay Sands.
Bustling Markets + Futuristic Gardens
The enchanting Gardens by the Bay invites you into a magical kingdom. From the tip of the Cloud Forest conservatory to the depths of the Dragonfly Lake, these gardens boast 250 acres of imaginative space to play. Exotic plant life blooms in every corner, the fragrant flower dome brings the vividness of spring all year round, and the Supertree Grove dazzles with its towering lights.
Take dinner at the lush Mediterranean inspired setting of Pollen, with panoramic marina views and ingredients plucked fresh from the vegetable beds.
Trade Winds + Chili Crab
From the future and back to the past, today in Singapore is all about tradition. Visit one of the oldest bakeries in the city and taste pillowy soft breads baked the ancient way. The scent of fresh bread wafting through the air is tantalizing, but it’s the conversation with the baker that pulls you back in time. On this tour of the disappearing trades, visit a paper house crafter to learn all about the fascinating deft fingered skill that complements the prayers of Chinese tradition. Finish by swinging by a long-established coffee roaster for a richly aromatic cup of kopi O.
Spend the afternoon drinking down the Singapore you want to see. From the dizzying heights of the Henderson Wave bridge to the trail that takes you skittering across the three main parks, discovering the green belt of the city is like gulping cold water on a summers day – sublime.
As evening falls, the Newtown Circus hawker stalls beckon; adventurous eaters can hit up spiced and blackened BBQ Stingray, but for more picky nibblers you can fall head over heels for the white flaked chili crab, golden buns and crunchy beansprouts.
2 nights’ accommodation at the Warehouse Hotel, private transfers in air-conditioned vehicle, meals as specified by travel agent, Venture Far Experiences (Ultimate Food Journey Walking Tour, Disappearing Trades).
Few islands in the world offer the diversity of Sri Lanka. From the vibrant + chaotic capital of Colombo, the central plains of the Cultural Triangle, tea plantations, exotic wildlife in national parks to coastlines of palm-fringed crescent shaped beaches.
On a different latitude but just as diverse and a little more cosmopolitan, Singapore has redefined itself as one of the great culinary cities of the world to be enjoyed over several days + not just a stopover.
