Tourists who are planning a short-term stay in Singapore can now begin their journey, before arrival in Singapore, by accessing a new ’48 Hours in Singapore’ city guide which is now available on BudgetHotels.sg (http://www.budgethotels.sg), an online hotel guide platform specializing in listing budget hotels near MRT train stations.

The 2-day city guide, prepared by Danny Lee who created BudgetHotels.sg, is a great resource for tourists, especially the time-strapped holiday makers. The guide offers a unique itinerary that is peppered with “local flavors” to help tourists explore Singapore.

“Increasingly, tourists especially from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand are on a look out for unique holiday activities to explore. The ’48 Hours in Singapore’ city guide provides an interesting itinerary to give these tourists a feel and to take delight in soaking in the atmosphere of the destinations.” says Danny Lee, founder of BudgetHotels.sg.

Key Highlights of the ’48 Hours in Singapore’ city guide

1.    Little India – An ethnic enclave that is also called the “Mumbai” of Singapore by the locals. Inside this sanitized slice of transported India, one can take a peek into the daily lives of local Indian community as they pray, eat and shop here.

Streets are dotted with ornate temples, makeshift vegetable and fruit stalls; colorful flower garland stalls manned dexterous weavers and wide range of authentic Indian restaurants that serve all sorts of curry as well as vegetarian dishes.

Tourists can also shop at Mustafa Centre, the only 24-hour shopping mall in Singapore and the locals’ favorite due to its attractive discounts.

2.    Tiong Bahru – The oldest neighbourhood and Singapore’s first public housing estate, the unique Art-Deco-style low-rise apartments are distinctively different from the modern high-rise apartments found in other districts.

Today, this veteran suburb has become new again with specialty coffee bars, trendy Asian-fusion bistros, indie bookstores and quirky lifestyle stores. You can see an interesting mix of old and new as hip youngsters sip their lattes in air-con coffee bars while first-generation settlers wash down their traditional Kaya toast with Nanyang coffee in un-scrubbed coffee shops few doors away.

3.    Singapore Hawker Food – When local street food is celebrated with an annual festival (Singapore Food Festival), one just know that sampling Singapore food can be a gastronomic adventure.

Famous dishes like Chicken Rice, Laksa, Roti Prata, Nasi Padang, Bak Kut Teh, and Rojak are a must-try. But to sample these dishes, one need not scramble across the island to locate the specific hawker stall.

An effortless way to chomp down on as many dishes as you can is to visit the Singapore Food Trail and Food Republic food courts where branches of these famous hawker stalls can all be found under one-roof.
