Singapore's food is one of those unspoken attractions and Makan bus doesn't disappoint. An inexpensive way to see a different side of Singapore with the whole family or as a solo traveller.

Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and
after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why.
This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying
selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement
foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is
something for everyone. For those just browsing, there
are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas,
as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you
