Pagoda Street, Chinatown
Whenever friends and family come for a visit to Singapore, inevitably, one of the first questions I get asked is: Where do we go? The answer, of course, is: It depends on what you want to do. Those with kids usually end up going to the kid-centric attractions: The Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari and aquarium (this is new) and maybe around the Marina Bay area for some (lots of!) picture-taking. That usually takes care of one weekend. For those who like exploring, then I usually recommend the cultural enclaves and work our way from there. So because I get asked so often, here are the areas I usually take friends to.
