Singapore to see the real Singapore, veer off the beaten path to Tiong Bahru. Start with local breakfast of mee pok (flat egg noodles) at Hua Bee a 70-year-old stall. Then, on to Tiong Bahru market to see how Singaporeans do their morning grocery shopping. Break for coffee at 40 Hands, pop into the hipster bookstore, “Books Actually”, and if feeling a little peckish, head back to the market for wallet-friendly hawker fare. If you’re in this area in the evening and want to splash on a good meal, head back to Hua Bee. By night, the coffee shop morphs into Bincho, a modern yakitori joint.

Day 29: Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur)

The fishermen use traditional methods that have been used for thousands of years, relying on nets and arm strength to catch fish. Of course, you can also grab some fresh fish here for a tasty meal.

Day 38 – 39: Dubai

For all Dubai’s futuristic appeal and abundance of western entertainments – a sleek metro that zips through the sky like something out of Blade Runner, sumptuous shopping malls, an indoor ski park, and countless bars – there is just as much fun to be had in the simple pleasures of “the Orient”: haggling for gold and frankincense in the bustling souqs, savouring the sunset from the back of a camel, inhaling from a fragrant sheesha pipe on the fairly-lit deck of an old wooden dhow.

Day 40: Muscat
