However, it is not all business and no play!
Drop by the beautiful and picturesque spots like the Merlion park, the ArtScience Museum, and Gardens by the Bay. Once you have taken in the sights, why not fill yourself with delicious food at The Spot, PS Cafe, OverEasy, and the dozens of joints that offer great food and a welcoming atmosphere?
And the night off with the drink of your choice at the Ce La Vi Club Lounge, Lantern Bar, or 1 Altitude Bar, before heading back to your new home. Now this is what we call living!
Heading out of the CBD a little lies the quaint and vibrant neighbourhood of Tanjong Pagar in Singapore. One of the more memorable sights would be the traditional Peranakan shophouses mixed in with independent businesses, blending in for a stunning coming together that is made for locals, as well as expats and visitors alike.
Coffee lovers would do well to visit the likes of Common Man Coffee Roasters and Five Oars Coffee Roasters, or get a taste of that sweet life at Plain Vanilla. Need something more substantial? The likes of Coconut Club, Esquina, Lucha Loco, and more await.
The bar scene is definitely alive here as well, with the Tippling Club, Native, and The Old Man providing wonderful concoctions to keep you buzzing.
Geylang & Joo Chiat
If you are the kind that you’re someone who wants to get into the heartbeat of the city and not bother with the usual stuff other people are into, then the areas of Geyland and Joo Chiat are ideal for you. Generally one of the more underrated neighbourhoods you can find in Singapore, for the insiders that are in the know, the opposite is much more closer to the truth.
Get Be amazed by the neighbourhood’s own brand of Peranakan shophouses, and get have your breath taken away by delicious local cuisine and the heritage of Singapore at every corner.
Enjoy a healthy dose of Vitamin D at the Singapore Wake Park or the long stretches at East Coast Park.
