Check into The Warehouse Hotel (Best Hotel Experience Winner), a boutique hotel nestled along the Singapore River in the vibrant neighbourhood of Robertson Quay. Look out for the hotel’s collaboration with local artists via woodworks done by Plane & Bevel, custom fabrics by Matter Prints and 100% eco-certified bath amenities by Ashley & Co, furnished across their 37 rooms–from the classic Warehouse Sanctuary to the luxurious River View suite. The hotel reveals heritage secrets with historically detailed rooms, classic local dishes and Singapore-inspired craft cocktails.
Journey back to yesteryear, when the Peranakans* first settled as they migrated to Singapore during the 15th century. In the heartlands of Katong, you will find Kim Choo Holdings (Best Shopping Experience Finalist)’s main factory. Here, dig into nonya rice dumplings, purchase exquisite porcelain and attend a beadwork workshop.
*The term is an Indonesian/Malay word that means “local born”, which generally refers to people of Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage.
Seize the night at the Night Safari (Best Attraction Experience Winner) and dine at the al fresco “Jungle Rostisserie”, which serves smoky meat dishes, or tuck into finger food at “Safari Sizzles”. Thereafter, catch the famous “Creatures of the Night” show – kids are also welcome to participate!
