920 Tiong Bahru Rd, Singapore 158792
Grab a seat at one of the newsprint-covered tables (or “chope” the table by putting down a pack of tissues to let others know it’s taken) and then stroll the aisles to check out what looks good. I recommend Fu Ming Carrot Cake, dim sum in little...
1220 East Coast Parkway, Singapore 468960
A great way to get to know local cuisine is to visit a food center, that is, a hawker center. You'll find a vast array of local dishes that are inexpensive and delicious. The crowd situation here is, well, it's basically too crowded during the...
8 Raffles Ave, #01-15, Esplanade Mall, Singapore 039802
If you are eager to try the famed Singapore street food but don't know where to begin, come to Gluttons Bay by the Esplanade for a tutorial. Here you'll find lots of signs explaining the various options and friendly hawker stall uncles who will...
18 Raffles Quay, Singapore 048582
The best fast food in Singapore's central business district can be found at Lau Pa Sat (Raffles Place MRT stop). This 150-year-old former fish, fruit, and veg market was converted into a collection of hawker food stalls in the 1970s. The market,...
Old Airport Rd, Singapore
I was told Old Airport Road hawker center is one of the most authentic and least touristy in all of Singapore. What really intrigued me, though, was the chance to try crocodile. I tentatively approached Crocodile Kingdom and ordered a Ginseng...
116 Rangoon Rd, Singapore 218394
This chain of restaurants began with a lone hawker stall and a dream. They serve a variety of Chinese dishes (along with a couple that are claimed to be Indonesian) but the piece de resistance is their fish head steamboat (pictured in the silver...
18 Raffles Quay, Singapore 048582
Every night the street next to Lau Pa Sat in downtown Singapore is closed to traffic. Satay sellers set up their grills, put out folding tables and chairs, and hawk their offerings to anyone drawn in by the fragrant clouds of smoke. You can't go...
One of the most relaxing water rides you will ever experience is rafting on the Rio Grande (one of Jamaica's largest rivers). The journey weaves through the deep valleys and untouched hillsides sprayed with lush tropical forests and towering...
807-2 Boseong-ri, Boseong-eup, Boseong, Jeollanam-do, South Korea
South Korea. To the world it is bright neon lights, fuel-efficient cars, genetic research and kimchi. The Land of the Morning Calm is deservedly lauded as a spreading ground for future tech and well known as the K-pop powerhouse, though Seoul is...
I hadn’t been awake for longer than a minute. I peeled back the tarp door to my room, walked out onto my deck, and leapt. It was an abrupt but purifying way to start the day. The cool, brackish water instantly defogged my mind, and my eyes opened...
Sec Gozalandia, San Sebastián, 00685, Puerto Rico
As with many other natural wonders in Puerto Rico, there isn't a clearly defined marker. Normally, to find Gozalandia, you would first have to visit it with a local, because getting directions there can be complicated. Lately, there is talk...
