Not sure about places to stay but things to do .....

There is a very nice place called Orchard Tower. Located on the Famous Orchard Road it is otherwise known as "Four Floors of Whores". Many fine establishments packed with women and if the reports I have heard are anything to go by the higher the floor the more expensive the .....

While I have not been here I have heard it is a good place to visit

Also I would go to the night zoo .... I like animals so I always enjoy it there. Walk - do not take the tour bus

Robertson Quay and Clark Quay should be samples .. good bars and restaurants at both

go to asiarooms.com

plenty of hotel reviews from expensive to cheapish....

go to 'lau pa sat'...huge outdoors hawker centre with plenty of cheap good quality makanan

Also, try 'Newton Circus'..similar hawker centre....all open 24hrs

for 'recreation'...the night zoo is cool..check it out

for other forms of relaxation...try "geylang"...old red-light district with heaps of street walkers and brothels, many different variety of ayam, cheaper than OT, but buyer beware...plenty of dirty scrags up there too, it's just as popular for Bangladeshi labourers as it is for Singaporean investment bankers...

OT is great fun, although it is slowly becoming seedier and seedier, heaps of trannies and Vietnamese birds now...downstairs heaps of Filipinas, not so many Thai girls anymore, a few Indonesians, just go in, wander about and explore

Sg is a great place, just look around and you'll have fun

Gaylang. Cheep and seedy. Don't get it confused with Gayland. The two offer completely different experiences.

If you want to hang out with backpackers and try to knob podgy brit girls, try Prince of Wales hostel in Little India. (great food nearby also).

Clubs are great but drugs are extremely difficult to find. Best to take your own.

I'm with Chewwy, Four Floors of Whores, best laugh you can have in the antiseptically clean conutry where it looks like they may have executed a 21 year old Nigerian for drug smuggling this morning (Ignore Pisses advice on the subject)

Apparently, for his last meal he requested Chewing Gum.

Anyway... Here are some long articles from a magazine about Singapore's hip new scene.... One is from the December edition so it talks about clubs for New Year's Eve parties but you will get the idea ...

FEBRUARY EDITION
Scene: Singapore
It’s less than two hours away (from Jakarta), and more fun than ever before. Get up to scratch on how to live it up in Singapore. By FRAN LEE

Food is at the forefront this month, in keeping with this being the magazine’s International Cuisine issue. Which bodes well for this section, as food is a favourite subject among Singaporeans. Eating is a treasured pastime and one can easily recognise this by the fact that restaurants, hawker stalls and food courts are packed at all hours of the day and night.
This month, we highlight two food stops that promise totally different dining experiences – Xi Yan was a well-kept secret until fans just couldn’t keep a lid on its delightful concept and even more impressive spread any longer; the Hong Kong restaurant gained quick popularity through word of mouth and soon enough the local media was on board. Meanwhile the Tiong Bahru Market, an iconic hawker centre and happy recipient of a S$16.8 mil makeover after 50 years, continues to serve up some of the city’s best hawker treats.

EAT

Xi Yan
Xi Yan sits on the second floor of a nondescript two-storey shop house on Craig Road in Chinatown. You won’t see any signs pointing to the restaurant, nor is there a large neon sign outside its windows announcing its location. Indeed, Xi Yan, unlike most restaurants, needn’t bother with attracting walk-ins. The clientele that comes here to feast are privileged guests who have managed to reserve a spot at its 50-seat (5 tables seating 10) space, despite its month-long waiting list.
The ultra-private restaurant was started by two Hongkongers, who brought the successful concept here after success with their restaurant in Wanchai. Their original restaurant was part of a trend during the economic slump where private dining places in small apartment flats serving exquisite cuisine gave big restaurants and their ubiquitous spread a run for their money.
The concept is brilliant – dining here is reservation-only and dinner starts at 7:30 p.m. sharp. There is no menu from which you can choose what to eat; you eat what you’re served, and that most often means a 13-course Asian Fusion feast. The dishes – such as Japanese tomatoes in a sesame-vinegar sauce, spicy Sichuan chicken, served with preserved egg and vermicelli, roast pig cheek with lime – vary according to the chef’s fancy, but several signature dishes are mainstays on the menu. Dining is elevated to a precise art form here, from the preparation of dishes to the manner and order in which they are served; presentation is flawless and flavours and textures do not clash from one dish to the next. Be prepared to spend about three hours here too; good food cannot be rushed after all, and service is paced such that that you properly get to savour every delicious morsel on your plate.

Tiong Bahru Market
Before: You’d think its dingy, grimy and smoky surroundings would keep the crowds at bay. Wrong. The 51-year-old Tiong Bahru Market, has for decades, been thronged by locals who don’t mind working up a sweat, waiting for a seat or joining the long food queues. Those who do mind, escape the fumes by stopping by for a quick takeaway. This iconic hawker centre is home to some of the most famous food stalls in Asia and you’ll be hard pressed to find a local who won’t agree that these eateries are synonymous with the country’s best fried kway teow, chwee kuey, lor mee and pau.
After: Foodies who’d previously avoided the market’s stuffy surroundings are pleased. Unveiled early last year, the new Tiong Bahru Market is now a three-storey complex complete with open spaces, high ceilings, spacious walkways and even lifts and escalators. On the first floor sits the wet market stalls while, hawker delights – all 84 stalls worth – enjoy pride of place on the second storey. Old school sticklers can still take heart in the fact that good ol’ favourites are still here, and that prices haven’t increased in spite of the snazzy, swank surroundings. Try the Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow where a S$2 plate will fill you up with eggs, fishcake, cockles, Chinese sausages and bean sprouts.
Kim Poh Road

SHOP

Different stroke

Soul-less shopping malls are a dime a dozen but if you’re hankering for a shopping experience that’ll unearth fine finds, head to the Icon@Bugis Point.
What: A six-storey building housing 88 delightful stores hawking everything from designer tees and vintage dresses, accessories and electronic devices to tattoos and manicures. Conceptualised by five experienced retailers who leased units to first time entrepreneurs and budding businesses, the Icon is reminiscent of the edgy youth-centered, albeit cramped shopping buildings in Hong Kong. Our tip: take the lift right up to the sixth storey and work your way down. Navigate narrow corridors and trawl the range of eclectic stores on every storey. The vibe here is casual and laid-back, so take your time trawling through the different floors and its various offerings. Each funkier than the next, the shops and their quirky d

DECEMBER EDITION

SCENE: SINGAPORE

BY FRAN LEE

PARTY
Things are heating up on Singapore’s party scene. Hard partying hedonists, take heed.

Come year’s end, there won’t be a shortage of party-hearty places for you to kick up your heels. Staid and sterile Singapore? Not quite, considering its bid to become the region’s clubbing capital. The talk’s backed up by plenty of money – over S$48 million has been pumped into the nightlife scene this year – and the results are clearly evident.

At this time last year, the city welcomed UK dance club Ministry of Sound to its Clarke Quay stables, an entertainment precinct boasting numerous F&B and clubbing options for the party set. This year, no less than three international brand names, and even more home-grown concepts are getting clubbers trippin’ and hot under the collar.

Here, we shine the spotlight on two of the largest players that’ll be giving you plenty reason to cheer this Christmas and New Year season.

St James Power Station
www.stjamespowerstation.com
Where: 3 Sentosa Gateway, near Harbour Front MRT Station and Vivo City
What: Costing S$40 million and two years in the making, this disused coal power station, built in 1927, opened two months ago, debuting new world music club Movida. Since then, four more clubs have joined the festive fray and by year’s end, the expansive 60,000 sq ft space will be home to a total of nine (!) party spots.
The hype: There’s something for everyone at this one-stop party haven. African, South American and Middle Eastern beats rule at Movida, as does a live 8-piece set from Cuba. If Mandopop and karaoke is your thing, head for Dragonfly and Mono, respectively. For a touch of old school, Bellini Room brings on smooth jazz, big band and swing sounds. Not ready to call it a night? Give your feet a rest at The Gallery Bar and enjoy a bird’s eye view of all the other outlets. Or, catch a breather at The Peppermint Park, the outdoor pub that promises more stunning views. Come December, live music venue The Boiler Room, chill out spot The Lobby Bar and dance club Powerhouse, also St James’ largest outlet, adds more pow to your party experience in Singapore.

The Cannery
www.the-cannery.com
Where: Blk 3C, Clarke Quay, River Valley Road
What: When the Ministry of Sound opened at The Cannery – an 80,000 sq ft concept space – in Clarke Quay last year, management team LifeBrandz promised bigger and more exciting things in store. They’ve kept their promise, and will debut five more hip haunts by year’s end.
The hype: Kandi, the club inspired by UK house music label Hed Kandi, promises to be a sexy, soulful hangout for the suitably stylish. Expect international DJs on the deck and for your dancing shoes, infiniti mirror dance floors. Meanwhile, fashion rules at FBar, where blinged-out interiors and runway shows are bound to be sheer head turners. Supper club Barfly, by Buddha Bar creator Raymond Visan, serves up a swank, sophisticated and sumptuous fare at its sushi bar. And, if you want to drink and dine with a difference, head to The Clinic, where drinks served in test tubes and drips, and food on surgical trays, are par for the course. For less adventurous appetites, there is the Italian bistro BICE for your pasta and pizza fixes.


Life’s a Beach

If you like the sand between your toes and the breeze in your hair, head out to island-resort Sentosa for your year-end soiree.

Zoukout The annual beach dance festival, now in its sixth year, takes place on Sentosa’s Siloso Beach on 8 Dec, from 8pm to 8am. Dance die-hards can look forward to four music arenas pumping everything from house and trance to hip-hop and indie on the 58,000 sq ft stage. An impressive line-up of international DJs and acts, including Ferry Corsten, Steve Lawler, Soulwax, Matthew Dekay, Jazzy Jeff and more awaits.

Menace to Sobriety

Speaking of Changi prison, the last time I went to Singapore (3 weeks ago), I did the Changi prison camp walkabout thing (the old WW2 camp that the Japs held the vanquished aussies and brits). It cost like S$15 and was really, really interesting. The next day, still in a history mode, I did the Battle Box tour in Fort Canning Park. S$8. That was even more fascinating, the day the English surrendered is brought to life in meticulous detail. The park itself might be my favorite place in Singapore. Totally mellow and pristine and literally spitting distance down to busy orchard road on one side and down to Clarke Quay on the other side (it's a big hill). I got some good take-away food and had a little picnic under a great banyan tree.
