I have one afternoon/night to introduce a friend to Singapore, its interesting neighborhoods and delicious food. By noon we should be ready to go after dropping off our bags and checking into into our hotel on Orchard Rd. (It will be a Monday, if that matters) I was hoping to include a bit of wandering through (and grazing in) Chinatown, the Colonial District, Little India, Kampong Glam and possibly East Coast Seafood Center or Hua Yu Wee for crab. (I realize this is probably pushing it and I'll have to cut some of these) I'd like to stop in several hawker centers along the way. Any thoughts on organizing my day a bit? Does anything stand out as better for lunchtime or better for evening?
I'll have 5 days there so plenty of time to wander around and try some of the places recommended on this forum. Just trying to figure out how to give a friend a "taste" of this nice city in a short time.
