Singapore City Guide

Plan your next trip to Singapore with our guide to the best hotels, restaurants, art galleries and more, handpicked by residents of the city

Towering skyscrapers, lush gardens and an unmistakable Marina Bay skyline: Singapore offers far more than squeaky-clean efficiency. Beyond the orderly expats commuting on the driverless MRT (mass rapid transport) subway, a trove of Southeast Asian art, culture and cuisine is waiting to be uncovered: the Lion City is home to the distinct Peranakan culture, polyphonic gamelan music plays in its concert halls, and regional masterpieces reside in its museum’s permanent collections. Low shophouses intersperse with modern architecture, and street food mingles with world-class Michelin-starred tasting menus.
