4D3N Singapore Tour: Shopping & Local Food

by Yurri
(Indonesia)

Hi, I will start with the basic info first :)
Arriving on 9 October around 2pm.
Going back on 12 October around 4pm.
3 ladies age 23-25 (2 of them never been to Singapore before)
As minimum as you can be for the budget would be nice :D

I would love to go to different hawker centers on our tour if you can fit it in and it'd be nice if you can give me suggestions on what's best at that hawker center.

Not really into cultural stuff like temple, mosque and stuff. But if it's on our way, doesn't hurt to take a pic with them :)

Places/activities to include:

- Bugis area
- Little india (especially Tekka Centre n Mustafa Centre)
- Chinatown
- MINT toys museum
- Merlion statue, Esplanade, Raffles hotel (just to take a picture)
- Singapore Flyer
- Sentosa (Universal Studios and maybe another attraction you can suggest)
- Riverside area
- Orchard Road
- Fountain of Wealth
- Would love to have breakfast kaya bread (other than yakun coz we have it here) if you can squeeze it in.

Do you think it's gonna fit on our 4 days n 3 nights?

Is there any other suggestion for me where to go or what to do?

Do you think it's more efficient to get like a hop on/off bus ticket or something like duck/hippo tour?

Thanks a lot :)

HHi Yurri


You effectively have 3 full days to enjoy Singapore. So you might not be able to see every spot you've planned.


Here's a suggested Singapore tour itinerary with a slant towards shopping and hawker food based on your descriptions:


DAY 1 - LITTLE INDIA

Take the MRT to Little India and have an early dinner at the Tekka Food Centre.

Thereafter, you could check out the shops at:

a) Tekka Centre,

b) the side streets of Little India

c) the main road, Serangoon Road

and culminate at Mustafa Centre.

24-hour supper options are abundant in the area around Mustafa Centre.


(Note: October is the season of the Deepavali Light Up and you'll therefore be well placed to take a lot of nice photos in Little India.)


DAY 2 - CHINATOWN & MARINA BAY

Take the MRT to Chinatown Station. Take the exit to People's Park, and you'll find many shopping and local food options:


1) People's Park has a great food centre on Level 1 and lots of interesting shops for ladies on Level 2.

2) OG Building - ladies clothes galore, plus gifts for your father, brothers and boyfriends.

Next cross Eu Tong Sen Street and you'll find:

3) Pagoda Street, Temple Street, Smith Street, Sago Street all have something worth looking at.

4) Chinatown Complex has another wonderful food centre on Level 2 and many shops selling surprisingly good ladies' stuff on Level 1.

Cross South Bridge Road, and you come to:

5) Maxwell Road Food Centre - very famous, very reasonable prices and very, very good food.

6) Ang Siang Road and Club Street. This stretch has some very interesting shops which you must pop into. I'll leave the discovery to you. It is also home to numerous good restaurants.


This could reasonably take up your entire day. If you still have time, take the MRT to City Hall Station, which is a short walk to:

1) Raffles Hotel

2) Mint Museum of Toys

3) Marina Bay Waterfront (Merlion Park, Esplanade and Suntetc City)


DAY 3 - UNIVERSAL STUDIOS SINGAPORE & FESTIVE WALK


Set aside the larger part of the day for Universal Studios Singapore. Then in the late afternoon/evening, hop over to Festive Walk within the resort complex, which has a few free shows and many higher end shopping and dining options.


DAY 4 - ORCHARD ROAD SHOPPING

You don't have much time on Day 4, but you might be able to catch a late breakfast, check out and then head out to Orchard Road for 2-3 hours' of shopping.

If you contact Porter Xpress, you might be able to get your luggage sent to the airport in the morning so that you could shop hands-free and leave directly for the airport thereafter.


Enjoy a good Singapore tour.
