Singapore, Singapore

My partner and I went to Singapore in August. We spent our time at two different hotels. The first was the Wanderlust Hotel. Which is part of the SPG family and a the Design Hotel Collection. We stayed in a Rome that looked like a tree house. The second hotel we stayed at was the Marina Bay Sands. This is hotel, casino, and shopping complex. It has an infinite pool that over looks the whole city. We wondered around the city shopping, eating street food, and high end restaurants. We also visited beautiful gardens. Its very easy to get around Singapore whether it is by Uber, walking or public transportation.
Story Details

Bars and nightlife

Operation Dagger
Cocktail Bar with creative craft cocktails. A bit hard to find. Look up the address before you go. It is behind an unmarked door and then go down the steps and you will see a curtain and the bar is inside.
D.Bespoke
Speakeasy style Cocktail Bar. Great inventive cocktails. Inside what looks like a shoe store.

Culture and experiences

National Gallery
Amazing East Asian art collection. Many gallery rooms to visit and the building is historic.

Restaurants

Odette
This is an amazing restaurant that does a multi course tasting menu. Its inside the National Gallery and the interiors are decorated in a soft pink and grey. The food is out of this world.
Chye Seng Huat
This isn't hardware store at all. Its actually a very great coffee bar called Cshh Coffee Bar.
Pollen
We only had a quick snack but if you want to visit the orchid house this is a good spot to get lunch. If you enter through the restaurant you do not need to pay for entry.
Burnt Ends
BBQ spot. The food is really good and make sure you sit at the bar so you can see the food being prepped. The chef is a bit rude but power through because the food is totally worth it.
Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant
Singapore is full of great street style food. This is one of them. Once you get a table the food comes out quick. Go with a group and share.
Andre Restaurant
Andre Restaurant
One of the best restaurants in the world. The food looks like art master pieces. You will need to make a reservation well in advance.
