When I visited Singapore, it was my first trip to Asia and I was honestly a bit disappointed how much it seemed more Disney resort than real Asia. Yes, most people speak English. It's relatively clean, wealthy and safe compared to many places in the region. Restaurant and food stall regulations make it a pretty safe place to eat even street food. Because of all that, and because it's a crossroads of trade in the region, you can find cuisines from many countries all in one place. Native Singapore specialties include Chili Crabs (messy and good), and Chicken Rice (seasoned poached chicken served with rice, cilantro and a chili sauce). Expect to find great Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian, even Australian/British restaurants. Look for exotic fruits and desserts, too. The weather makes eating outdoors possible when rain doesn't get in the way. I tried my first taste of chrysanthemum tea from a vending machine while hot and thirsty during a tour of the botanical gardens. Keep your eyes open. If you like culinary adventure, you can hardly pick a better place than Singapore. report a problem

Agreed! Singapore is indeed a foodie paradise. I think you initially had that very stereotypical view of how an asian city looks like... things have changed a lot, bangkok was probably closest to that but even that city has become super modern recently. for foodie lovers coming to singapore, check out this collection of must try singapore dishes when you're on our island! http://www.thesmartlocal.com/read/top-7-must-try-food-in-singapore
