Singapore River at night   Singapore may be one of the smallest countries in size, but we are certainly big on food, shopping and entertainment. From the spanking new shopping malls of Orchard Road to the bustling hawker centres to the dozens of discos, pubs and restaurants, there’s plenty to do all year round.
   In this section, we provide you with a guide to the food, the shopping, the attractions and the night life. There's even a guide to all the week's happenings - whether you want to catch a play, a concert or visit an art exhibition, we'll tell you where it's at. All you need are an open mind and a comfortable pair of shoes and we guarantee you won’t be bored.
