Who knows, you might meet a new good friend for keeps. On the waterfront is the Riverside area where crowds are drawn for its wide range of bars, cafes and night clubs. Enjoy the ambiance of cheerfulness and glee echoing through the walk by the riverside as you gaze at colorful lights glittering on the water. You won’t even notice you are alone!

See a long row of little shops situated outdoors, vibrantly technicolored to attract shoppers. You can haggle for prices of charming souvenirs, some local Chinese snacks and some old vendors selling unique, odd items you won’t see in your country.

4. Taste The Singapore Meals At A Local Food Court

Visit the local food courts such as the Maxwell Food Centre, Old Airport Road Hawker Centre, Newton Food Centre and Makansutra Gluttons Bay located in the upscale Marina Bay District.
