10 Things to Do for backpackers in Singapore

For backpackers in Singapore looking for a check list of things to do that is unique to the Singapore culture.

  1. Call a local Singaporean “Uncle” or “Auntie”
    As a form of respect, young Singaporeans (below 30 years old) address more senior people (above 50 years old) as “Uncle” and “Auntie”, whether or not they are actually related to each other. Warning: do not try if unsure of the person’s age as some people might get offended at you implying that they are old.
    .
  2. Ride on the MRT during peak hours
    Crowded MRT station in Singapore

    Crowded MRT station in Singapore

    The local subway is always jam packed with people during the morning and evening peak hours. Squeeze with the Singaporeans for a first hand experience of exactly how small the island is.

  3. Shop at Orchard Road

  4. Speak Singlish
    Singaporeans speak English as the national lingua franca, but it is so peppered with phrases from Mandarin, Malay and the local dialects that foreigners find it difficult to understand. Try inserting “lah”, “lor” and “leh” at random places in your speech and see if you can pass off as a Singaporean.
    .
  5. Visit the casino at Marina Bay Sands

  8. Join a queue
    Queueing is one if the favourite hobbies of people in Singapore  Singaporeans love to queue, even if they don’t know what they are queueing for. Find a long queue anywhere and ask a random person in the queue what the queue is for. Don’t be surprised if the answer is “I don’t know”.
    .
  9. Buy TOTO or 4D at Singapore Pools
    TOTO and 4D are legalized forms of lottery in Singapore, run by the gambling monopoly organization, Singapore Pools. There are 300 Singapore Pools outlets across Singapore, so tourists should be able to find one pretty easily.
    .
  10. Tailor an ethnic costume at Chinatown, Kampong Glam, or Little India
