App Description

Few cities in the world seem as different as Bangkok and Singapore. Yet look more closely and there are similarities. Singapore’s night life has become more varied than ever; the recent opening of multi-billion dollar, “family-friendly” casino resorts has added to the mix. And, both cities are equally obsessed with street food and haute cuisine. The FT’s Little Book of Business Travel turns to experts like chef David Thompson and cookery writer Madhur Jaffrey to help you decide where to eat. In addition, our correspondents in these cities advise you on the best place to unwind after a long day of meetings and why you should avoid the Singapore Sling. Both cities have plenty of shopping choices and our experts have whittled the list down to the most interesting. Confronted with such an array of options on a short trip, you need a guide close at hand – right in your hand actually. Rahul Jacob was the FT’s travel food and drink editor until April 2010 and is now South China Correspondent.
