Singapore, the Garden City, is a city-state located in South East Asia and the perfect stop-over spot for a quick visit if you are traveling to Europe, America, Australia or other Asian countries.
Known for its pristine neighborhoods, slick and modern architectures, multi-national cultures, Singapore is the place to discover if you enjoy all year round warm weather, meeting friendly people, embracing rich art scene and having fun with a thriving gay community.
Local friends highly recommended me to check out Tantric, one of the hot gay spots during the weekend. Known for its "Blue Spin" cocktail, (try this drink at your own risk), I immediately feel at home with a diverse crowd of clienteles. While you are here, also check out May Wong's Cafe (it is upstairs from Tantric) for an old Hollywood feel and experience.
DYMK, Does Your Mother Know, is another local hang out bar without all the fuss. If you prefer a mellow environment and having drinks with your friends, DYMK is the spot to be.
One of my favorite place is PS Cafe, a gem for visitors if you are a foodie, this is definitely the place to be. Besides having drinks, it is a great place celebrating good times with friends in a lush surrounding. If you are in a dance mood, I recommend Taboo, the hot spot to let it loose with locals, foreigners, visitors and friends.
Singapore can be a pricy place to visit when it comes to hotel accommodations so do plenty of research to secure hotel room prior to your trip. If you are budget conscious, we recommend you try the Inn at Temple Street for an intimate experience. Porcelain Hotel is another great find (I love the exterior design with the Porcelain print on the side of the wall) for its modern twist on a classic interpretation about Chinese jewelry.
Just a friendly reminder about Singapore and its strict law imposed on the LGBT community. Even though Singaporeans are friendly with gay visitors in this city-state island, however, it is a good idea to abide local laws so you and your company can have a safe and peaceful visit in this tropical city.
