To experience local food, Carolina recommends the following dining destinations: the Maxwell Food Centre, East Coast Lagoon Food Village, Lau Pa Sat and the Newton Food Centre.
The best restaurants include the No Sign Board Seafood venue at The Esplanade, Banana Leaf Apolo at Race Course Road for great Indian cuisine and True Blue Cuisine at Armenian Street for authentic Peranakan food.
The trendy shopping malls of Singapore showcase the best the city has to offer, which include ION Orchard, Ngee Ann City, Paragon and 313@Somerset. But Carolina suggests offbeat shopping can be enjoyed at smaller venues such as Arab Street, Haji Lane, Holland Village, Chinatown and Little India.
