Tale of 2 Steak Houses


 Hi, this is Wayne Mansfield. This is another in my travel series where I go to exotic places and taste the best restaurants that I can find.

The last couple of days I’ve done a comparison between what is reputed to be Singapore’s best steakhouse, It’s Lawry’s, and what is fast becoming known as Perth’s only steakhouse to go to, which is called Hippo Creek. Continue reading

Singapore Tourist Attractions You Must Visit

Time Never Waits.(Singapore)

Singapore Tourist Attractions You Must Visit

There are certain places in specific countries that define them. Some come easily to mind, with the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Le Arch De Triumph in the same country. The Egyptians have the pyramids or the famous gold markets and Italy has their museums, the Vatican and of course the ever famous leaning tower. Singapore is no different from this and there are many Singapore tourist attractions that you must visit, packed into a small island nation. It is amazing in itself that Singapore, with its diminutive size has been able to pack in so much culture, tradition and entertainment every where a visitor turns and here is a quick overview of the Singapore tourist attractions you must visit.

Singapore Tourist Attractions – the food 🙂

I think one of the main attractions is the food of Singapore, something everyone must taste before they depart the country. Local delights are a source of pride for every Singaporean because they carry with it that special touch and flavour that make them unique to this island nation. Tourists should always visit areas like Little India, Chinatown and Arab Street to taste some of the best local delights that Singapore has to offer. Not only do can they recognise the different ethnic enclaves and slices of our multinational and multicultural society. Enjoy true local Chinese delights in any of the coffee shops and shop houses that pepper these locations – at the same time enjoy the rich sights and sounds of these places over a steaming cup of a local favourite. There is nothing like immersing oneself in a sensory experience, smell, touch, taste – all while viewing the rich tapestry of culture draped all around – from preserved old architecture to colloquial slangs.

You have not experienced Singapore without experiencing some of the more famous walkabouts among the visitor circles. Don’t forget to visit the Central Business District and be amazed by the sight of the tall skyscrapers touching the clouds in an arrangement that has graced post cards and brochures all over the world. Be awed by the Esplanade and its titillating architectural design. Relax by the Singapore River, party in Asia’s first floating event platform and soar above all your expectation with the Singapore Flyer – larger than the London Eye by a long shot – giving you a great view of the island.

Lonely Planet World Food Malaysia and Singapore (Lonely Planet World Food Guides)

Singapore is a country with a long history of immigration. It has a diverse population of close to 5 million people made up of Chinese, Malays, Indians, Asians of various descents and Caucasians.42% of the population in Singapore are foreigners who work and study there.

Prior to independence in 1965, Singapore was a vibrant trading port with a GDP per capita of $511, the third highest in East Asia then. After independence, foreign direct investment and a state-led drive for industrialization based on plans by former Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Goh Keng Swee created a modern economy.
