Description

Heidi Sarna, author of Secret Singapore, is an expat living with her family on that island-nation for 15 years. Lea introduces facts about Singapore, and then Heidi tells its secrets, including seawalls, shophouses,  rail lines, mansions and shrines.

We talk cruising and of exceptional Changi airport with its offerings, and 'Gardens By The Bay.' We discuss if safety in Singapore-- including fines for jaywalking, chewing gum -- is too much.

Singapore's multi-national cuisine is renowned, and we speak of favorite foods, often served at communal Hawker Centers

You can get a good overview of Singapore from the huge ferris wheel, but an even better one from a rooftop locals know about. We talk of nightlife, shopping, historic neighborhoods, and architecture. Also the famed Hotel Raffles -- the lore and the reality.

Heidi ends our surprising tour with her favorite Singapore  memory.
