Dear T'suen Wei

How are you and your family? It's been three years since I've last seen you, and I am delighted to know that you and your parents would be visiting Singapore! I can't wait to see you again! 

As you and your parents would like to learn about Singapore's culture, I highly recommend visiting Chinatown and Little India. Chinatown is a must-go due to its beautifully restored shophouses and colonial buildings. By taking a trishaw ride around the vicinity, you would be able to see how the area's modern buildings show a stark contrast to its historic buildings. You can learn about Singapore's fascinating culture by visiting religious landmarks of different faiths, where you can also learn about the main religions in Singapore.  

Little India, with its multi-coloured shophouses, is one of the most colourful districts in Singapore and a spectacle worth seeing! You can walk into the gaily painted shophouses selling traditional Indian apparel, gold bangles, spices and other exotic wares. By walking along Little India's roads, you can learn a lot about Indian culture just by looking at how people dress and the numerous roadside stalls. One of Little India's specialities, such as the fish head curry, will give your tastebuds a treat and is definitely a must try!

One modern aspect of Singapore would be the Singapore flyer, which sticks out among the skyscrapers in the Singapore skyline. This is the place to go for the most spectacular and panoramic views of the city. While taking a spin on the Singapore Flyer, you can take delight in a scrumptious meal while enjoying great views of the city. Another modern aspect of Singapore would be the Gardens by the Bay. This sprawling garden in the city provides mesmerising waterfront views across the gardens which would take your breath away. A must see are the super-sized trees which are between nine to sixteen stories tall. They are truly a sight to behold! 

Singapore is well known as a food lover's paradise as it has a wide range of delicious foods. It would be hard to resist our local fares such as laksa, oyster omelette, mee siam, rojak, Hainanese chicken rice, nasi lemak and chilli crab. These gastronomical delights are uniquely Singaporean dishes and must try! You wouldn't know what you are missing out on if you don't try these foods!

I hope that the itinerary sounds exciting to you. I can't wait to see you in three week's time! Have a safe flight!

Bye for now
