Item description for Singapore Handbook, 2nd (Footprint - Pocket Guides) by Joshua Eliot & Jane Bickersteth...

Singapore is an unlikely place. It has been engineered to unexpected economic success and 'imagineered' into an entertainment playground for the historically and ecologically impaired citizens of Singapore, whose government once implored them to 'have spontaneous fun'. A report in The Economist judged Singapore to be the most boring city in the world. For those who fail to venture beyond the plazas that line Orchard Road, or spend their time on coach trips to the ersatz cultural extravaganzas, this is not surprising. But, despite its brash consumerism and toy-town mentality, Singapore is certainly not without its charm.

Reviews - What do customers think about Singapore Handbook, 2nd (Footprint - Pocket Guides)?

great background but some details are out of date  Oct 8, 2003
Great history and background. A little critical of the so-called Singapore Miracle -- but that is not a stance without merit. (After all, it's the most successful totalitarian state on the planet!)

Note that this second edition was written in 2000, and is missing some important details (like the fact that there is a Chinatown stop on the MRT these days; or the fact that the Chinese Heritage museum has been completely re-done as a multimedia experience akin to the Asian Civilizations Museum -- and while a little hokey is quite effective at communicating the history of the Chinese experience in Singapore; etc.)

Definitely more meat to this guidebook than most.

Excellent Overview of Singapore  Mar 24, 2000
In planning my trip to Singapore, I found this book had everything I wanted to know. It gave an excellent overview of hotels and restaurants. I liked how it focused on the different areas of downtown Singapore and the background/history section was great.
