One of Asia’s many countries that attract attention for all the right reasons has got to be Singapore. While it may not be large in size, it’s mighty in spirit and what it offers. From leisure activities and entertainment to the never-ending shopping malls, Singapore is bountiful with things to do, see, eat, and the list goes on. Can we also mention how impressive their public transport system is?
Secondly, Singapore is among the 10 of the safest countries in the world – it has a low crime rate, a transparent legal system, and a reliable police force. All of these factors make it an easy choice for women travellers. I mean, you could literally hold out your handbag while walking the streets at nighttime, and you don’t have to worry about it being snatched.
Speaking of being out and about at night, the island nation is home to a pretty impressive bars, many of which are tucked away from the public. Offering unique atmospheres, views, and flavours imbued into their beverages, think of these four bars as a new way to get a taste of Singapore.
Aqua Luna is located on the top floor of one of Singapore’s hippest hotels, and it’s likely that you won’t ever want to leave, as you enjoy the infinity pool that overlooks the city’s incredible landscape. Your best investment will not just be an evening at this trendy location, but booking an entire vacation at the Alexandra Hotel, where you can meet and see off sunsets, swim in the infinity pool, and drink exotic cocktails.
Speaking of investments, many people like to bring home souvenirs from their travels, but this isn’t always a smart decision. Instead of spending time buying ordinary keepsakes, you can invest in precious metals in an investment bank. I mean, talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
28 Hong Kong Street
After exploring the sights and sounds of vibrant Singapore, why not take a beat at HongKong Street, where trendy hotels, cafes, and restaurants are homed? It’s easy to miss with no signage whatsoever, but if you pay attention (to the crowd), you’ll quickly make your way to 28 Hong Kong Street.
A hidden speakeasy bar that serves stellar cocktails amidst a laid-back setting, it also won the first ever The Best Bar Award in Asia in 2016. Now, that’s impressive! Also, if you’re feeling peckish, they serve some American comfort food that is perfect for sharing.
Bitters & Love
Walking through the city’s business district, you may come across another popular cocktail bar, though it’s not that easy to find. Forget about searching for a welcome sign. Again, you’ll need to pay extra attention to the crowd, and you’ll know you’re there.
Here, you can try many signature cocktails. The bartenders at Bitters & Love like to experiment with different flavours and ingredients, which often results in flavour-packed cocktails that will have you coming back for seconds (and thirds). In addition to delicious drinks, this bar’s highlight is that they have DIY cocktail sets for purchase. Cute!
The Spiffy Dapper
You’ll love this cocktail bar’s approach if you know what a good laugh is. Unlike all other bars, The Spiffy Dapper emphasises the fact that they serve semi-decent drinks, some of which at first glance may even seem crappy, and have you wondering why you’re there in the first place. Because of such beverages, even the worst date will seem perfect.
Finding your way through the shabby stairs in pitch darkness, you will constantly think about whether you are moving in the right direction. Once you get here, you will find it hard to leave because the cocktails are actually delicious!
