Postcard from Singapore

LISTEN HERE The island city-state of Singapore is sometimes dismissed by travellers as being a little 'sterile,' however, this postcard from expat Gaynor Reid, who's lived there for the past 9 years, shows us a completely different Singapore - one that boasts a plethora of green spaces and wildlife, history, street art and artisan boutiques. Gaynor shares with us her favourite walks, the best rooftop bars to catch the legendary sunsets and the places she loves to eat; from the famous hawker stalls to Michelin-starred fine diners. (Some links to some of the places Gaynor mentions are below.) So, whether you're planning a trip, or just armchair travelling, I hope this ExtraVirgin postcard inspired you as much as it did me.
