The best free things to do in Singapore
Things to do The best free things to do in Singapore

It's that time of the year where all of us are scrimping and saving to afford to go on a year-end vacation. But that doesn't mean you can't have any fun. From enjoying ticketless performances, art exhibitions and offbeat attractions to exploring Singapore's great outdoors and dining for free, here's how to live it up the city gratuitously. RECOMMENDED: 101 best things to do in Singapore and the top 10 things to do this month  

Unique local snacks to try in Singapore
Restaurants Unique local snacks to try in Singapore

When you get a nation that snacks, you get the most unique (and most delicious) selection of local snacks you can find. With flavours like kaya, curry and laksa, we reckon this is only the first wave of unique Singapore snacks we'll experience. Let's munch away.  RECOMMENDED: Old-school childhood snacks we love in Singapore and the best traditional bakeries and cake shops in Singapore

New restaurants, cafés and bars to check out in October

Don't worry – the perfect cake is not a lie. But if you want to lie to yourself about the calories you're consuming, go right ahead. RECOMMENDED: The best traditional bakeries and cake shops in Singapore and the best cafés in Singapore for dessert   

The best burgers in Singapore
Restaurants The best burgers in Singapore

Everyone loves a good burger every now and then. The way its juices trickle down the hand as you chomp down on a fluffy bun loaded with meat (we have vegan options too) and other decadent toppings – it's divine. Our quest for the best burger in Singapore is eternal. Here are some places we're really digging at the moment.

The best non-alcoholic drinks in Singapore
Bars and pubs The best non-alcoholic drinks in Singapore

But what happens when you don’t feel like drinking and are dragged for a post-work pub gathering with the colleagues? Steer them to these bars and their wide range of non-alcoholic beverages instead.
