 +Singapore is prone to mosquito borne diseases. The city is usually safe, but rural, forested and wet areas are a potential risk. Tropical strength (DEET) insect repellant may be recommended. Singapore is not a high malaria risk, but its not impossible given that travellers from S.E. Asia come into the country. http://​www.nea.gov.sg/​public-health/​dengue/​dengue-cases https://​www.gov.sg/​microsites/​zika

 +Din Tai Fung https://​goo.gl/​maps/​SYMpvnvzffK2 xiao long bau, michelin starred but almost-stree-food prices. Queueing inevitable. Also at https://​goo.gl/​maps/​nJe5MLQHpCD2 and https://​goo.gl/​maps/​e8C2d1ZhSzJ2 within short walking distance, and further afield.
  
 +The local speciality dish, if you aren't drawn to hawker street-food,​ is going to be chilli crab. This is the recommendation from regional frequent visitors to Singapore. http://​www.thebestsingapore.com/​eat-and-drink/​best-chilli-crab-in-singapore/​
