 +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

 +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/​

 +Hawker Street food: Tekka Center https://​goo.gl/​maps/​3BhqEnT3CdG2 (Leif Johansson)
 +
 +Vegetarian Indian food: Nalan: Go down into the MRT station, turn right before the turnstiles, go left as soon as you can, and then right and go down the ramp to the Capitol Theatre, into the mall under the theatre where the restaurant is.  This is maybe five minutes from the venue, ten if you aren't a speed walker.
 +
 +Thai Food with some veg dishes: Thai Express. ​  This is down in the Raffles Marketplace food court. ​  They have a couple of Tofu dishes, which are quite good, and quite spicy. ​  Be aware that if you get takeout, everything comes in its own plastic container, so this is not a very environmentally friendly option. ​  ​Better to eat in.
 +
 +//There are a bunch of Indian vegetarian restaurants in Little India such
 +as Anand Bhavan (pure veg which means they don't make meat dishes as
 +well).
 +
 +Near temples such as Sri Krishna Temple on Waterloo street, there are a
 +bunch of options.. (e.g., in Fortune Centre) - Indian and Chinese
 +veg. You may have to ask locally for specific options.
 +
 +(Subway also do veg subs if you don't have any options.)// (Mukund Sivaraman)
 +
 +
 +
 +//You can get very tasty South Indian vegetarian food very close to the IETF venue. Head to Komala'​s in Peninsular Plaza, a 3 minute walk from City Hall MRT. Service during lunch hours is usually prompt.

 +If you'd like to sample some unique Buddhist vegetarian food (prepared in chinese style), you should try a vegetarian restaurant called New Fut Kai (http://​www.newfutkai.com.sg/​)//​ (Bill Silverajan)
