✈ Singapore Musts from Jet Set Candy's Blog, the Charming Jetsetter ✈

1. Enrich your understanding of pan-Asian culture through art. From 30 May 2013 – 8 Dec 2013 at Asian Civilisations Museum, 1 Empress Place / 2. Be Bold. Visit a bar with attitude, designed especially for trendsetters and fashionistas. On offer: premium wines and champagnes, potent cocktails and exotic canapés. / 3. Take a day trip to the world renowned Singapore Zoo where animals roam freely in open and naturalistic habitats. Prefer night activities? Brave a night safari where the kingdom comes alive. /  4. Shop your heart out at Takashimaya Mall. Relish international fashion and accessories and Japanese cuisine. Look out for the 2013 Rose-Chan Doll. / 5. From the Grand Lady of the Far East comes the Singapore Sling, best sipped where it was conceived—under swinging fans at the Raffles’ Long Bar. / 6. Hungry for a culinary experience? Saint Pierre brings a unique and creative passion to life with organic, wholesome and fresh food. / 7. The rosy-violets and pale mauves of Singapore’s national flower take centre stage at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Look out for the Tembusu—one of the island’s most distinctive trees – then pop into the Library and Garden Shop for souvenirs. / 8. A Singaporean icon, the Merlion stands almost 9 meters high and weighs 70 tonnes.  Located in Merlion Park and One Fullerton, this symbol of Singapore comprising a lion’s head and fish’s body is a must see. / 9. Electrify your palette with one of Singapore’s greatest culinary inventions: the Chilli Crab. / 10. For curious and quirky, modern and charming, head to Ann Siang Hill & Club Street for colorful shopfonts, wine bars, vintage clothing outlets, and alfresco restaurants. Snap the architecture, old window shutters and streetlamps from an era long ago.
