The Monocle Travel Guide to Singapore

Regular price $31.95

Singapore offers a steaming fusion of food, shopping, culture, and start-up creativity all uniquely nestled in a city ringed by shrines, rainforests, and resorts.
Gone are the days when outsiders struggled to pinpoint Singapore on a map; this equatorial city-state is making waves across myriad sectors from health to logistics. Its skyline has taken shape at a blistering pace with numerous attention-grabbing architectural accents. Singapore can still surprise though: quaint colonial-era shop houses sit anachronistically nestled alongside skyscrapers; temples, mosques, and churches share the same streets and open-air food courts sell tasty street food just steps away from fine-dining establishments. With a decidedly global outlook, the country embraces all things hi-tech and modern while having one foot firmly rooted in tradition.

The Monocle Travel Guide to Singapore will equip you with the know-how to explore beyond the obvious. Monocle have scoured the city-state for the top restaurants and kueh (confectionery) shops and listed the independent retailers selling goods that embody the best of "brand Singapore".
