Meet one of your Local Hosts in SingaporeMeet a Local Host® in Singapore

Hello my name is Vena, and I've been an guide since 1991. I enjoy meeting new people and helping visitors discover what makes Singapore such a special place.

Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel

Stop at Long Bar at the Raffles, where the Singapore Sling was born sometime between 1910 and 1915. The original recipe was lost, so this traditional cocktail has been modified through the years. Today it includes gin, cherry brandy, Benedictine, grenadine, Cointreau, pineapple and lime juice, a dash of angostura bitters, and fruit to garnish. The dress code is relaxed, so women should wear a casual dress or skirt, and men should wear a sports shirt, slacks or Bermuda shorts, and appropriate footwear.

Lau Pat Sat

Housed in the largest Victorian cast-iron structure left in Southeast Asia, this once thriving market is now a popular food destination for Singaporean locals. Here you will find a vast array of Asian foods to fit any taste. At night, Boon Tat Street is closed to traffic, and the food stalls move to the street, where you can watch street musicians perform.

Orchard Road

This ultra-fashionable shopping area of Singapore is popular for both tourists and locals alike. From the latest fashions to intriguing antiques, it is the place to shop and people watch. If shopping is not your thing, the National Museum of Singapore is well worth a visit. Located on the east end where Orchard Road turns into Bras Basah Road, the museum uses a storytelling approach that allows you to choose your own path into the past. The events path outlines the events and characters important to Singapore’s history, and the personal path tells stories through the eyes of the man on the street.

Wala Wala

This laid-back bar is the perfect place to spend the night after a long day. Live music is featured nightly and more often than not, patrons find themselves singing back-up vocals on several pop classics. For dinner, they serve up some great western food including pizza and chicken wings.

Singapore Flyer

Discover Singapore on top of Asia's most iconic architectural and engineering marvel. From sunrise until sunset, experience the breathtaking views of Singapore and beyond from this giant observation wheel. See the magnificent Marina Bay, towering skyscrapers, tropical greenery, the bright lights, and non-stop action against the beautiful skies.

Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

With a décor and atmosphere reminiscent of a 1950s coffee shop, Chin Mee Chin, known as CMC, is a local favorite. As you enter, the smell of fresh coffee (roasted on site) and confections will bring a smile to your face. They offer a variety of baked goods—from Swiss rolls to cream puffs—but the real star is the Kaya toast. Kaya is a traditional jam made from eggs, sugar, and coconut milk. Stop by for a bite to eat and a cup of coffee served the old school way—in a cup and saucer—and you may never view coffee shops in the same light.

Makansutra Glutton Bay

Sample some of Singapore’s best foods at the Makansutra Glutton Bay. Try everything from satay and BBQ chicken wings, to chili crab, oyster omelet and fried carrot cake. Every hawker is handpicked by Makansutra.

Kampong Glam and Arab Street

Nothing in Singapore beats Arab Street for bazaar-style shopping with true ethnic character. The street itself is a riot of colorful textiles from all over Asia, sold at very low prices. Here you can browse through hole-in-the-wall shops; haggle to your heart's content and come away with the most delightful purchases at bargain prices. The little streets in this area form the historical focal point of Muslim life in Singapore.

Meet a Local Host®

I'm Kong. Since 1988, I have worked as a guide and in 2006 I was voted Best Tour Guide (English speaking) at the Thailand Tourism Awards. I love to teach others about Thai culture and how to speak some key words and phrases in Thai. I am approachable and energetic and interactions with my guests are one of the favorite parts of what I do. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of Bangkok with you.

The Blue Elephant

You may decide you can’t get enough of the delicious local flavors, and if that’s the case, spend half a day at The Blue Elephant to learn how to prepare authentic Thai at home. This cooking school takes you through the entire process—from shopping at a market to enjoying your dishes. While it’s somewhat more expensive than a half day of museums and lunch, the long-term benefits are immense.

Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park is an inner-city haven of peace, fresh air and greenery – inviting visitors to connect with nature or enjoy outdoor leisure activities. Named after the birthplace of the Lord Buddha in Nepal, the park is a shady oasis home to various flora and fauna including the eccentric water monitor lizard.

Pratunam-Phetchaburi

Grease the elbows and stretch the knees; it’s time for a hectic shopping experience. There’s something for everyone here—from the bargain-hunter to the clinically fashionable. Clothing, jewelry, crafts, and much more are on full display in this busy area. Make sure you venture behind the street-front vendors to Pratunam Market for international goods. Keep in mind, bargaining here is more about being friendly and respectful.

Apoteka Lux Bar

With an old school feel, the Apoteka Lux Bar is based on an outdated word for pharmacist and emulates a 19th century apothecary. Come for the live music or grab a spot at the patio for a nice place to curl up for a romantic night or meet some friends.

Go Sky High

Bangkok is blessed with several “Sky High” options where you can have dinner and/or drinks with a stunning view over the city. Check out the Octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge on the 45th floor of the Marriot Hotel Sukhumvit for a great sunset or romantic meal with the only 360 degree view of Bangkok. Be prepared to pay a little more but it’s worth it!

Thai massage

There are countless places offering traditional Thai massage in Bangkok. One of the best choices is the Thai Massage School at Wat Pho. Many of the local masseuse and masseurs were taught here, and you can get a 1-hour massage for $15 to $20 USD. You can also learn the techniques for yourself!

Ride a tuk-tuk

These small 3-wheeled vehicles are an interesting way to get around and should be tried by anyone traveling to Bangkok. Make sure to negotiate the fare before sitting down.
