This is a continuation post from Singapore Itinerary - Day 1.
Day 2, let's get started!
Quick tips for the day: Avoid eating breakfast at hotel, you will be on a food trip. In the afternoon, you will visit a sacred buddhist place, so try to adhere to this dresscode: no bare backs, off-shoulders, shorts, mini-skirts, etc; Appropriate attire is required to enter the place.
Amoy Street Food Centre
Best of the BEST can be found in this very hawker center, and the only way to really enjoy well is to reach here early. Once the lunch time crowd kicks in, it will be chaotic. Also, as most of the food would be sold out after lunch hour, so you must visit this place in the morning, at least before 11 am. Don't be afraid to eat a lot here, everything is worth it!

Free admission. Hope you are properly dressed, as it is their house rule. The main purpose here is to view the solid gold two-metre stupa on the fourth floor which is the place where the sacred relic is kept. Up in the roof, there is a pagoda that has a large prayer wheel. Take the chance to relax and also a little rest from all the eatings.
Dessert @ Mei Heong Yuen Dessert
Very popular dessert place among the locals and tourists. You can expect some crowd, so just queue and wait if you have to. Must try: Snow ice of your choice (durian flavor if you haven't tried durian), Glutinous Rice Balls in Ginger Soup, 3 Colour Cakes, or even dimsum like Glutinous Rice with Chicken.

You should be easily notice Temple Street, Pagoda Street and Mosque Street here. There are all parts of Chinatown. You can also cross to the direction of Chinatown MRT and walk the area there. Chinatown is famous for dried sundries. Recommended: Bee Cheng Hiang Dried Pork and Pork Floss!

COME & EXPLORE secret food and places that no other tourist knows! Travel-Foodies, this is your TOP itinerary for Singapore. I only recommend eateries that are well enjoyed by LOCALS, not any mainstream restaurants that can be found everywhere. Side activities are also filled with local flavors. With my guide, your cost of traveling within the city is also cheaper, as you won't need to spend on cab/taxi unnecessarily. Thus, you'll get to shop more, eat more. Your best guide for local experience!
