Fiji Water Presents Earth’s Finest City Guide – Where Will You Travel?

This post brought to you by FIJI Water. All opinions are 100% mine.

Singapore

Growing up I knew that I wanted to get outside of the state, the country even and see more of the world. There were so many things I didn't know about and even more experiences waiting to happen. I wanted to see, taste, touch, read and learn as much as possible about the world. I haven't got their yet but I'm working on it. In the mean time I've been dreaming about the places I want to go, pinning, snipping and saving articles on places of interest. 

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. – St. Augustine of Hippo

As I was perusing Earth’s Finest City Guide – Singapore I was keeping the list of places I wanted to go in mind. Aspen, Dubai, London, Charleston, Singapore… Singapore? After seeing the country featured in their 6th issue I was intrigued. Mostly because I knew so little about the island located in southeast Asia. But I was sold on it's overview. In addition to being a foodie's dream, Singapore offers breathtaking orchid gardens, golden Mosque, wild life, luxurious hotels, and did  I mention the food? 

The guide was full of all the best places to eat, see and stay but here are my top picks. 

New Majestic

Stay

The Fullerton Hotel is a fabulous 1928-era hotel overlooking the Singapore canal and the city. Meanwhile the New Majestic Hotel is a hodgepodge of 30 rooms each featuring a unique aspect. One might feature a giant red blowfish floating on a bright blue wall, or Japanese lanterns dangling alongside a mural of geishas playing tennis. I find both hotels to be appealing in their own unique way, in fact I have yet to decide which I would stay at. 

 ODP Food

Eat

Singapor is easily known for its amazing cuisine at refined French restaurants and amazing hawker markets – a foodies dream. A hawker centre is an open air food center housing many stalls that sell a variety of inexpensive food. It's like they were built just for me, yum!

And after eating my weight in nibbles here in there I'll have to take a rest, at a proper sit-down eatery.

Chef Ryan Clift menu with casual—eclectic European fare in an urban-rustic setting at ODP (Open Door Policy). The menu features such comfort food as braised beef cheek and an apple crumble, "but know the beef might have mochi potatoes as a side, and that prawn cocktail comes with a whipped rose sauce. Such tweaks on tradition accurately summarize Singapore itself, and make for a good bookend to your time here."

 Masjid Sultan Mosque

See

I have always been open to the study of religion and it's influence on it's people. So visiting a Moque has been on my list of experiences for quite some time. The MASJID SULTAN MOSQUE is a stunning structure that offers daily tours. 
Tip: You’ll have to remove your shoes and don a robe if your clothing is not modest enough.

    The food looks delicious! One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to eat- eat- eat. Singapore looks like a beautiful travel destination.

    Singapore has never really been on my bucket list of places to visit while India has been. My brother visited India and the photos and stories have always made me want to go there. Now that you’ve introduced a bit of Singapore to me I want to go there too.

    That hotel in Singapore definitely looks interesting! I would love to go back to Venice, Italy – I think it’s one of Earth’s finest cities.

    Well I’d love to go to London, because I’ve always wanted to go there, but Austin right now fits more into our budget!
