Singapore // 1 City 5 Ways (Bonus stops!)
By Robin Cherry, Delta Sky Contributing Writer
Each month, Sky magazine highlights five ways to discover a destination. Here are more Singapore spots to explore.
FOR THE GARDEN LOVER
Lunch // Halia
In the middle of SBG’s ginger garden, Halia (Malay for ginger) marries European cuisine with Asian flourishes. Frog porridge, a local specialty, is given a French twist with garlic butter and freshly picked ginger. Finish with ginger flower sherbet topped with ginger crumbles.
FOR THE HISTORY BUFF
Afternoon // Walking Tour
Take in a walking tour with local legend Geraldene Lowe whose knowledge of local history seems to know no bounds. Her most popular tour takes you inside some black and white colonial houses built by the British.
FOR THE ARCHITECTURE AFICIONADO
Afternoon // Fort Canning Park
Visit Fort Canning Park and see Sir Stamford Raffle’s house then head to the Peranakan Museum to learn about the heritage, culture and traditions of the descendants of Chinese who immigrated to Singapore in the 15th and 16th centuries.
FOR THE FOODIE
Morning // Chinatown Wet Market and Little India
The wet market sells live seafood, fish heads, two-foot long squids, whole preserved ducks and exotic produce (including fiercely pungent Durians). Across the river, Little India is filled with shops selling jewelry, fabric, flowers, electronics and food.
FOR THE STYLE SEEKER
Dinner // Iggy’s
Founded by award-winning sommelier Ignatius Chan, Iggy’s serves modern European cuisine inspired by Chan’s world travels. The Capellini served with tiny shrimp in konbu and shellfish oil is a signature. Iggy’s wine list favors burgundy, champagne and riesling.
