Bangkok is a shopaholics paradise and we love how this city has a plethora of shopping spots to satiate our never-ending love for shopping.
If you’re sick of the usual touristy markets like Chatuchak and Talad Neon, you can try paying a visit to Huai Khwang Night Market. This market is less frequented by tourists so you get to shop like a local and have a different night market experience altogether.
Travelling with children has its fair share of rewards—fun, bonding and exposure. But let’s be real, young children can sometimes be a handful. They are fickle beings that lack the physical capacity of us adults and more often than not, have the tendency to throw tantrums when they’re tired or disinterested.
With the holidays or long weekend fast approaching, you might be thinking of taking your family somewhere special—preferably to a place filled with fun activities for kids. Well, if you want to do away with the hassle of planning but still fancy a cheeky holiday away from the confines of home, then perhaps a staycation should do the trick.
Forget the stresses of airports, immigration and all that jazz, here is our list of 11 kids-friendly hotels in Singapore that your family (especially your kids) will love.
Located just opposite King Albert Park MRT in the cozy neighbourhood of Bukit Timah sits the newly opened Kong Cafe that has been styled in a minimalist concept which highlights its commitment to modern aesthetics.
Upon entry into the cafe, we were greeted by the clean-cut bright white walls of the cafe, which offered a calm and comfortable ambience that could potentially turn this new kid on the block into the next hip social hangout in the west of Singapore.
Exciting news for North-siders in Singapore: Xing Fu Tang will be opening its third outlet at Compass One mall this September, adding on to the other two at Takashimaya Shopping Centre and Century Square at Tampines.
Just recently, news has been going around about a stall at Golden Mile Tower that specialises in a popular Thai dish called Leng Saap. Since then, the internet has been splattered with pictures of a gargantuan mountain of pork and everyone has been scrambling to try this Instagram-worthy pile of meat.
Leng Saap essentially translates to ‘Spicy Pork Bone Soup’ and it basically consists of giant portions of pork ribs and spine that are generously doused in a rich and addictively spicy broth as well as plenty of lime, coriander and chilli.
We’ve tried the one at Golden Mile Tower and were instantly hooked, so naturally, when we were in Bangkok, we HAD to try the original to see how it measured up. And boy, were we impressed.
Coffee shops and cafes are truly abundant in Singapore these days and new ones pop up so often too! Newly opened at the Loft @ Nathan, Grace Espresso specialises in some impeccable latte art alongside some yummy brunch foods!
If you’re craving some good nosh at a cosy cafe, Grace Espresso might just be your new favourite haunt. It’s definitely one of the hidden coffee shops you have to hunt down due to the location, but it might just be well worth your while.
Taking over local bakery Prima Deli’s long-time spot in Clementi is One Stone Three Birds. The humble ice cream cafe serves homemade gelato at affordable price points. As there aren’t many speciality dessert cafes in Clementi, One Stone Three Birds might be well on its way to being the go-to ice cream place in central Clementi.
The shop is run by a husband and wife duo, passionate to find new flavours and infusions for their ice cream. Check out what we thought about this new ice cream shop!
