Tell Us Your Singapore Travel Tips

After watching Crazy Rich Asians in Singapore, I want to have fun on a cargo ship in international waters and buy clothes that cost more than my home. What I don’t want to do is wade ankle-deep in church. But I cannot afford it. How about a crazy middle class thing we can do in Singapore?

Every Monday onHack Your City, we ask readers for the best tips about the city: driving tips, restaurant tips, entertainment, and any other tips for visitors and locals alike. Then, on Thursday, we present the best comments. We work in the USA and around the world.

What is underestimated? Which places deserve a few more discerning visitors? What are the best alternatives to tourist traps and mediocre city favorites? What do you like most there, the highest taste?

How should a visitor approach the city? What position should they take? What local traditions, behavior, and laws should they be aware of? How can they get along with people? What problems does the city solve? When is the best time to visit and what special events are worth attending?

How does it feel in the long run? Residents, what do you love and hate in the city? What advice can you give to other residents? How do you drive to work, what is your daily cafe or where is the best place to watch? What mistakes do new residents make – what are the common misconceptions or incorrect pronunciations? Where do you go if you want to go out of town for a day or a week?

And really, which places of Crazy Rich Asians are really worth visiting? What are the good beaches, where is the good mahjong, where are the best views?

Finally, how has the atmosphere of the city changed over the past few years? What should someone know if they haven’t returned for a long time? How much has the city grown, literally ?

Leave your tips in the comments below and we’ll highlight the best ones. (Make sure you add something new.) Then come back Thursday for a new post with highlights.
