Singapore might be small in size, but it definitely packs in plenty of excitement, while also being firmly rooted in its traditions. Here, sleek skyscrapers sit aside heritage-protected temples, mosques and churches. You can shop to your heart's content before recharging with a plate of Michelin-starred chicken rice in a hawker centre, and then satiate your cultural appetite with a spot of museum and gallery hopping. If museums aren't your thing, go for a walk through the kitschy neon-lit 'supertrees' at Gardens by the Bay, or fawn over giant pandas at the Singapore Zoo. Singapore Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city's best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences. This guide also includes a selection of 'field trips' encouraging you to venture further to the islands of Pulau Ubin and Sentosa.
