Heading off again at Christmas and will be spending 5 days in Singapore. Apart from the usual touristy stuff, does anybody have suggestions about what to do while there? googling just brings up the mainstream tourism. I want nitty gritty stuff, local stuff!

Thanks!

Hmmm. Sentosa's okay, more of a pleasant getaway from Singapore city life than a stunning beach (man-made). Very expensive too, by Asian standards. Singaporean's however (understandably) love it.

I'd agree with Cheli's list for things to do and would definitely add making the most of the hawker centres to the list. The food is to die for, and much better than the restaurants that have been stained with westernisation..
