Musa recommends you start your day with an indulgent breakfast buffet at MELT – a multi-cultural dining smorgasbord – then head to Old School, a privately run arts center atop Mount Sophia where you can enjoy the independent creative scene.

Live music by up-and-coming bands are showcased here and galleries display diverse art pieces. You can also catch local Asian films at the Sinema theatre. For lunch, he suggests heading to Absinthe, a charming French restaurant on the fringes of Chinatown. Afterwards, why not discover the bustling streets nearby and pick up a chic souvenir or two before heading to Haji Lane – a quaint bohemian district bursting with designer boutiques. For dinner, kick back and relax at Blu Jaz Café, a popular boho-style café-cum-lounge bar with world-class live music, ranging from jazz quintets to Latin bands. End the evening on a 282 meter-high – and a stunning panoramic city view – from 1-Altitude, a bar and restaurant at the top of One Raffles Place.
