Singapore's main island is sometimes described as diamond-shaped-perhaps it's appropriate to say so, because this glittering city is known for its material pursuits and is also featured in the movie Crazy Rich Asians Protagonist. But look at the shiny decorations in Singapore, you will find that it enriches China, India, Malay and other heritages, far beyond the half-century history of this city-state as an independent country. Thanks to superb street food and efficient public transport, you don't have to be extremely rich to enjoy this movie-like city, and now Singapore Airlines offers uninterrupted new flights from Newark, making it easier than ever to get there.
新加坡的主島有時被形容是個鉆石形——或許這么說很合適，因為這座熠熠生輝的城市以其物質追求而聞名，在電影《瘋狂的亞洲富人》(Crazy Rich Asians)中亦扮演了主角。但是看看新加坡那些閃亮的裝飾，你會發現它濃縮了中國、印度、馬來和其他遺產，遠遠超出了這個城邦作為獨立國家的半個世紀歷史。由于一流的街頭食品和高效的公共交通，你不必極度富有，就可以享受這個電影般的城市，現在新加坡航空公司提供從紐瓦克出發的不間斷新航班，前往那里變得前所未有地方便了。
1, 5 pm. Sincerely
At the beginning of the journey, go to Telok Ayer Street to quickly browse the past and present of Singapore. This is where Chinese immigrants once landed by boat. Although reclamation projects have filled the waterfront and glittering skyscrapers have risen around this narrow street, shrines and temples from different denominations still cling to this faithfully preserved community. Enjoy a few minutes of purification in Tianfu Palace, a carefully restored 19th-century temple built by Fujian immigrants to thank God for letting them cross the sea safely. Passing the minarets and arches of the nearby Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Heritage Centre, deep into Chinatown, Sri Mariamman, the country's oldest Hindu temple, is beckoning tourists to admire the gorgeous gopuram ( Gate tower) and colorful deities.
在旅程的起點，去直落亞逸街迅速瀏覽一遍新加坡的過去和現在，這里是中國移民曾經乘船登陸的地方。雖然填海工程已經填滿了海濱，閃閃發光的摩天大樓已在這條狹窄的街道周圍拔地而起，來自不同宗派的神龕和寺廟依然堅守在這個被忠實保存的社區之中。在天福宮內享受幾分鐘的清凈，這是一座經過精心修復的19世紀寺廟，是福建移民為感謝上天讓他們安全穿越大海而建造的。經過附近的納哥德卡印度穆斯林遺產中心(Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim Heritage Centre)的尖塔和拱門，深入唐人街，全國最古老的印度教寺廟馬里安曼廟(Sri Mariamman)正在那里招呼游客來欣賞華麗的gopuram（門樓塔）和色彩繽紛的神龕。
2, 7 pm. Forget Singapore Noodles
In the vendor center or food court, you can quickly learn about the pan-Asian taste of Singapore. Diners can enjoy simple dishes such as fried crab with spicy sauce, chicken stewed with ginger, and barbecue with super spicy curry sauce. The locals are always arguing about which vendor center has the most delicious one. Lau Pa Sat is famous for its towering cast-iron frame and national monument. In the evening, hawkers using barbecue grills occupy adjacent Wenda Street, erasing the boundary between this lively street vendor center and the rest of the city. If you want a more intimate atmosphere, the Amoy Street Food Centre (7 Maxwell Road) is very popular with locals and Michelin food critics. A main course of S $ 3 to S $ 6, or about $ 2.25 to $ 4.50 is enough.
在攤販中心或美食廣場可以快速了解新加坡的泛亞洲口味，食客可以品嘗到辣醬汁炒蟹、姜燉雞，以及搭配超辣咖喱醬汁的烤肉等簡單菜肴。當地人總在爭論哪個攤販中心才有最美味的某種菜肴。老巴剎(Lau Pa Sat)以其高聳的鑄鐵框架和國家紀念碑而聞名。晚上，用烤肉架烤肉的小販占據了鄰近的文達街，抹去了這個熱鬧的攤販中心與城市其他地方的界限。如果你想要更加溫馨的氛圍，廈門街美食中心（Amoy Street Food Centre，馬克斯韋爾路7號）很受當地人和米其林美食評論家的歡迎。3到6新元、約合2.25美元到4.50美元的一份主菜就夠吃得飽飽的了。
3, 9pm. Beyond Singapore Commander
The candy-colored shops on Xiamen Street include CrossFit gyms, fashionable barber shops, Korean barbecue restaurants, and other businesses that reflect Singapore's trends. The Native Bar, which opened less than two years ago, has a variety of cocktails made from local ingredients, from fresh mangoes, salt-baked cassava to jasmine and even ants. The ultra-local style permeates every detail, from local bands playing in the background, to eco-friendly coasters made from dried lotus leaves and banana stems (about $ 20 for a cocktail).
4, 11 am. East coast style
At the gentrified Zhonglulu and budding Zalambasa, brunch could be the world of avocado toast and single-source coffee. But if you start your morning in the laid-back Katong area-a place full of Easter egg-colored 19th-century villas-choose a traditional kaya toast, which is a bun or white bread on top Cover with coconut butter and butter flakes, topped with tender boiled eggs. Hungry diners (and Instagram users) line up outside the nearly 100-year-old Zhenmeizhen Candy Store, a local store with charcoal toast (S $ 1 each) and rich nostalgic dishes to make up for the crude service. For a more hearty meal, try different interpretations of Laksa, a spiced coconut curry noodle soup, and go to Katong Laksa (S $ 5.35) and Ocean Paradise Laksa (Marine Parade Laksa, 50 East Coast Road, 01-64, starting from S $ 4.50).
在士紳化的中峇魯和嶄露頭角的扎蘭貝薩，早午餐可能是鱷梨吐司和單一來源咖啡的天下。但是，如果在悠閑的加東區——一個到處是復活節彩蛋色的19世紀別墅的地方——開始一個早晨，就選擇傳統的卡亞吐司，那是一種小圓面包或白面包，上面鋪上椰子醬和黃油片，配上嫩煮蛋。饑腸轆轆的食客（以及Instagram用戶）在擁有近百年歷史的真美真糖果店外排隊，這是一家本土店鋪，炭烤面包（每個1新元）和豐富的懷舊菜品彌補了粗暴的服務。如果想要享用一頓更豐盛的美食，可以品嘗這里對叻沙的不同演繹，這是一種充滿香料的椰子咖喱面湯，可以去328加東叻沙（Katong Laksa，5.35新元）和海洋天堂叻沙（Marine Parade Laksa，東海岸路50，01-64號，4.50新元起）。

If you're in the mood for a souvenir, Supermama next door offers porcelain sets designed in Singapore and made in Kyushu, Japan, which depict the city's unique skyline.
