Places to eat, places to go, things to do for a week?

Hello all... I'm planning to do a trip to Singapore for about a week at the end of May 2014. It's gonna be my first trip back to Singapore since 1990 (ish). I'm open to eat, see and do anything that is unique to Singapore, and I'm more into the local stuff instead of the usual tourist stuff.

If you had a week in Singapore, what would you say are the top 10 places to eat and the top 10 places to go (or things to do)?

Thanks

    Hi Patrick!

    Well, one thing I can tell u, Singapore has changed tremendously ever since 1990. I only revisited Singapore in 2009 myself, and was really surprised with new sites, such as the Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade Park, etc. But I guess since you are more into travelling like a local, such landmarks might not really appeal to you, eh!

    In Singapore we have this thing called a "Hawker centre", which basically is an open-air complex where you can find local delicacies such as laksa noodle, minced chicken noodle, fried carrot cake, fish head curry, and many more. There are lots of hawker centres all around Singapore, commonly found near the residential areas. I would personally recommend the one in Bedok -- Bedok Food Centre (Bedok Corner), which is near the airport.

    However, the challenge with going to a hawker centre as a tourist is that these stall owners commonly only speak Chinese. So ordering might be a bit problematic.

    The good news is, there is this Singaporean-based startup called BonAppetour that offers travellers a chance to have a unique dining experiences at the homes of locals. You could check it out at www.bonappetour.com. Some of my friends are hosts on that platform, and they too, serve home-made Singaporean deliciacies. :)
