I always find the best way to really see a new place is to don some comfy shoes and walk it. Singapore was no different. It’s a very easy city to walk as unlike Bangkok, the pavements are lacking in cracks and holes and are generally immaculate, it didn’t take us long to realise we no longer had to look down the whole time. We wandered and strolled, stopped for drinks and popped into places that caught our eye. Needless to say we saw some cool things, here’s a roundup of my favourites.
