2. Street Directory (http://www.streetdirectory.com/). Coming from a city where street names change with every change in political administration, it was a relief to come across Mighty Minds' userfriendly street directory and bus guide. Need to find out how to get to Ikea using public transportation? Just go to http://www.streetdirectory.com/travel/, type in the starting address & ending address and click enter. Streetdirectory will generate a bus/mrt guide, including the address of the nearest bus stop. Bring the handy Bus Guide with you to keep track of the stops before your destination. Left it at home? Each bus stop has a list of buses plying that particular route along with the addresses of the remaining stops.
3. Fun Singapore. This is a great book geared for locals, foreigners, tourist and intrepid explorers. It features more than 250 places ranging from farms to parks to places of worship, places of interest & special sports. What I love about it is that the discovery guide not only contains useful snippets of information, it also provides easy instructions on getting there.... very useful when taking a cab or bus to relatively unknown places such as Forest Adventure at Bedok Reservoir Park.
4. Makansutra. Foodies, this is the book for you. This is a no frills guide to street food & restaurants in Singapore. Die die must try! Updated on a regular basis, this handy book lists more then 1,100 street food and restaurants recommended by a team of Makanmatas (Food Police). Looking for the best chicken rice in town? Head out to Fook Seng Goldenhill Chicken Rice in Jln Rumah Tinggi. Hankering decent Pinoy food in a honest to goodness restaurant setting? 7,107 Flavours is the restaurant for you. =)
