I’m often in Singapore on short stopovers, in transit to Europe or other parts of Asia, but I rarely put in a good effort to get to know this amazing little country. In September this year, my visit coincided with the Formula 1 Grand Prix and I was invited to a couple of race events, so I had good reason to stick around and build a little fashion blogger fairytale during my visit – here goes!

Due to its proximity to the race track, I stayed at the Pan Pacific Singapore. I love this hotel for its incredible buffet breakfast, large and super relaxing pool, and the position. The hotel is connected to Marina Square, Millenia Walk and Suntec City, and is just a short transit to “The Shoppes” Marina Bay Sands. The first three shopping destinations mentioned are connected by walkways from the Pan Pacific and have great food courts, basics including Zara, TopShop, Esprit and Puma, among many others. These are great if you’re keen to hang out in air-conditioning with minimal effort, but once you’re done catch the train from Promenade to Bayside (one stop) and soak up all the glory of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. The list of of shops there is endless, so click here for their directory.
