Singapore, home of the Chili Crab.
Singapore safe exciting city, and one of the cleanest cities on the planet, and the food is to die for. The monster chili crab above weighs 3.5 kilo and comes from Sri Lanka. I used to catch these delicacies from my jetty on the Gold Coast in Australia, and the biggest I ever caught was just under 2 kilo, no comparison to these monsters. If you are looking for an exciting safe city with great food and a fantastic skyline Singapore is the place for you.

Boat Quay Singapore
Super travel tip. Ask the taxi driver to take you to Boat Quay, there are 30 to 40 restaurants beside the river, don’t be afraid to bargain a little on the price of the crab and the wine.

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay
Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is a waterside building located on six hectares of waterfront land alongside Marina Bay near the mouth of the Singapore River, purpose-built to be the centre for performing arts for Singapore. Apart from the shows, Singaporeans usually visit the Esplanade for its scenic outdoor view. It overlooks the Singapore river and is in between the Singapore Flyer and Merlion park, making for a good stroll around the vicinity. River ferries stops have been added recently, enhancing its accessibility.
The food centre was promoted by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) as a tourist attraction for sampling Singaporean cuisine. It was first opened in 1971 and it closed down in 2005 as the government wanted to revamp the food centre. The food centre then went through a major renovation before reopening on 1 July 2006.
Parkview Square wine angel.
The “wine angel” at Parkview Square is lifted 6 meters into the air to retrieve your wine selection. A nice quiet bar to enjoy a drink in this well known office block.
Your wine sir. 😛
Not to sure whether Duncan is checking out the wine or the angel. 🙂
