Go on a relaxing bumboat ride from Marina Bay up the Singapore River and enjoy the Singapore’s cityscape. Glide past the spouting Merlion fountain, statue of city founder Sir Stamford Raffles and chug past restaurants, shopping malls and office towers. Stop for a blood-orange and guava margarita at Super Loco in expat-heavy Robertson Quay when you disembark— then grab a taxi back to the Conrad.

EAT AT THE BIGGEST (AND BEST) HAWKER CENTER

  • Choose from over 200 different food stalls at this giant open air complex
  • Locals love the fish ball noodle soup and wok-fried oyster omelets, to name a few
  • Swing by anytime of day for an authentic dinner, lunch, or even breakfast

One of the unique pleasures of dining in Singapore? The hawker centers. Every neighborhood has one, and it’s where the majority of Singaporeans eat at least one meal a day. Most are small in scale, with only a few dozen stalls, which is why the Old Airport Road Food Center, with nearly 200, stands out. Ask any cab driver, and they’ll tell you it also has the best of many things: porridge, avocado smoothies, chicken rice, and on and on. Few tourists make the trip given that it’s away from the city center and removed from other attractions, but that shouldn’t stop you. Grab a cab and this giant open-air buffet is just a 12-minute cab ride away. We’re partial to the exemplary fish ball noodle soup at Ru Ji Kitchen, where the fish paste is pounded by hand and formed into springy balls every morning; try it with their homemade sambal chili. Or line up for noodles with tender slices of barbecued pork and wontons at Hua Kee Hougang Famous Wanton Mee followed by eggy wok-fried oyster omelets topped with fresh spring onions at Katong Ah Soon Fried Oyster. The stalls are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but they keep unpredictable hours; if the one you’re looking for is closed, just find a long queue and join it. Remember, there’s no air conditioning, so it’s sometimes sweltering, and you’ll have to bring your own napkins—small trade-offs when you consider that most dishes cost between $2 and $6.

CURE WHAT AILS YOU WITH ACUPUNTURE

  • Feel your energy flow with traditional Chinese medicine for the 21st century
  • Trustworthy practitioners perform acupuncture, cupping and other Eastern cures
  • Go for the acupressure massage or try herbal medicine treatments

For anyone who’s ever been curious about acupuncture and other forms of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Singapore just might be the perfect place to try it. The discipline is still thriving in the city, with a number of trustworthy practitioners; combine them with ultra-modern facilities, and the result is clean and efficient TCM clinics for the 21st century. Founded in 1879, Eu Yan Sang has multiple clinics across the island, including outlets in Paragon Mall on Orchard Road and Marina Bay. So bring on your travel-induced jet lag, headaches, chest colds—all can be treated here with a range of Eastern cures. We love the acupuncture—we swear it doesn’t hurt, and the needles are sterile. (For first-timers, feeling the energy flow through the nerves can be a revelation.) Treatments last about 30 minutes, and include a thorough consultation with a doctor, who may recommend a combination of acupuncture plus heat therapy and cupping. And if you’re truly afraid of needles, go for an acupressure massage. The company also runs a chain of herbal medicine stores where you can buy high-quality medicines and herb-based cosmetics that target specific issues (anti-aging, inflammation, redness).
You can find multiple clinics across the island, but we recommend the one inside Paragon Shopping Center. It’s on the corner of Orchard Road and Bideford Road, near to the Orchard station. But, the clinic is closed on Sundays, so come in during the week for a healing treatment that will take you through the weekend.
