Linguistic, gastronomic and cultural diversity — all rolled into a little dot on the equator.

A little dot on the world map, Singapore packs a lot into a small space: a multicultural history, colorful turn-of-the-century shophouses, stately museums, one of the first fusion cuisines in the world and underground networks of malls. Its size means it’s possible to experience it all in one fell swoop, from luxury shops and bespoke bars to nature reserves. But don’t be fooled by the sparkling image of this urban planning marvel: Eat at a hawker center where the locals speak Singlish, and you’ll see that this island nation is delightfully down-to-earth.

Look beyond the shopping malls and there are many delightful finds, including a chicken-rice shop opened in 1953 and a coffee roaster factory that’s been making strong, sweet kopi (Singaporean coffee) since 1959. Anchored by Novena Church, this neighborhood is also a gateway to hikes such as MacRitchie Reservoir.
