Your trip will not be complete without seeing the Church of the Holy Family and Katong Antique House, well-known tourist spots in East Coast. This nearby locality is just 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) to the south. We also suggest traveling onward to Kampong Glam. The Malabar Muslim Jama-Ath Mosque and Parkview Square are sure to be of interest while you're there.
Marina Bay, a regional hub only 3 miles (5 kilometers) from Katong, should not be missed. Here, you can visit the Telok Ayer Market, Wonder Full and Cloud Forest. Also stop by the Marina Bay Sands Skypark and Merlion Park to make your visit complete.
Spend a restful few hours here by going cycling or picnicking.

You're likely to be served food with noodles or crab while in this region.
Try a few of the popular dishes here, such as ayam penyat (smashed fried chicken) and phad thai (stir-fried rice noodle dish).
Submit to the desires of your sweet tooth and order beancurd barley, a popular local dessert here.
In Singapore, the local patrons love to catch up over a glass of Yuzucha, a delicious beer here.
Those who are not interested in alcoholic drinks may be interested in lemon barley, a local favorite.
In most cases, the difference between being a true traveler and a mere tourist is a little understanding of the local language. So, make the effort to come to grips with some practical Malaysian expressions. For example, "Di mana tandas?", meaning "Where's the toilet?", will be useful from time to time. A second handy one is "Asal dari mana?" ("Where are you from?").
Note the 9th of August in your planner. It's National Day! Prepare to experience some wonderful displays of local culture.
