Singapore is a melting pot of several Asian countries. Although founded by a Brit in 1819 named Sir Stamford Raffles, it was originally conquered and occupied by the Japanese. She gained her independence in August of 1965 and has been a rising star in the financial world ever since. Some of the world’s biggest banks reside in Singapore, as it is one of the safest countries. Singapore ~ A Traveler’s Haven.



Nightlife in Singapore is abundant and for such a small island there are plenty of places to choose from. A great place for live-wire revelers is Chateaux. It boasts elegance and sophistication. It’s housed in an authentic historical site in Singapore and has been catering to the clubbing experience for nearly a decade.



If food is your passion, Singapore doesn’t disappoint. Singapore is a foodie haven with something for every palette. My go to places are: Capricci an Italian fine dining eatery owned and operated by Massimo Squaro. His 20 years experience and passion for food shines through in the delectable dishes served at his charming restaurant.

Hawker Centers

For the wallet watcher the thousands of “Hawker Centers” scattered throughout Singapore is where you should eat. At these small family owned stalls you’ll find the best food in Singapore. Each one serves authentic, traditional dishes handed down from their families and each proprietor will argue that their version is the best.

Mezza 9

My ultimate favorite and one that I recommend whenever someone is visiting Singapore is Mezza Nine. It’s located in the Grand Hyatt and offers diners literally hundreds of culinary delights. With its nine different dining experiences; steam basket, deli counter, wok, grill, seafood, Thai, yakitori, sushi, patisserie counter and a martini bar there is something for every palate and it is impossible to leave less than satisfied.



There is a place for every budget when it comes to accommodations. From backpacker hostels to luxury hotels there is something for everyone in Singapore.


One of my favorite places to stay is the Shangri-La. There are two locations in Singapore, Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa and Shangri-La, Singapore located in the heart of the city. Each one offers its guests luxury accommodations second to none. Lush, tropical greenery and luxurious guestrooms and suites surround each location. The Rasa Sentosa has ocean views while the Shangri-La; Singapore is within walking distance to some of the best shopping in Southeast Asia.



Singapore has some of the most remarkable architectural designs. One of my favorites is the Marina Bay Sands. Internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie, from Las Vegas, designed the spectacular hotel/convention center/shopping center/restaurant/casino/theater and it truly is an amazing sight to see. My favorite thing to do is to ride to the top and take in the breathtaking views from the Sky Park. You gain a sense of how extraordinary Singapore is when you get a 360° view of her.


Another marvelous architectural feat is the Gardens By The Bay. It’s an attraction that encompasses three spaces where you’ll enjoy Super trees, a waterfront garden, and a vertical garden that generates it’s own solar panel and rainwater that acts as a ventilation system for the whole park. The most amazing thing to me…it’s all enclosed in an air-conditioned space! Now, how can you have plants from every corner of the world and successfully grow and display them in air conditioning? It’s simply remarkable!

There are no shortage of things to do or places to see in Singapore and its central location to some of the world’s best tropical islands makes it an awesome base to do research for my website. In my 5 years here, I’ve never been bored. Singapore is brilliant at keeping up with the demands of an ever-changing world and I am happy to call her home…for now!
