Singapore squeezes a lot into its small land area – you can walk through the famous ‘supertrees’ of Gardens by the Bay, catch a glimpse of the giant pandas at Singapore Zoo, grab a Michelin-starred dish in a hawker centre, and browse through the shops at Jewel Changi Airport, all within a relatively easy distance.
Singapore Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to Singapore’s best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences, and its most accessible and budget-friendly choices. Each precinct takes in one or more of Singapore’s traditional districts with insider reviews of outstanding attractions and hidden gems, as well as easy-to-use maps. A selection of field trips also encourages you to venture further afield to Coney Island, Sentosa Island, Pulau Ubin and Changi Village.
Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing the most vibrant range of places in Singapore, like a local.
