The neighbourhood of Balestier is one of the local districts within Singapore, specifically including some areas in the Novena and Kallang parts of the city. Much of the area is centred on Balestier Road, a major thoroughfare named after the first American consul to this territory during the 1800s. While the district does not offer a lot of entertainment, visitors can enjoy a meal of Asian fare, including local specialties such as bakkutteh and tau sarpiah. Tourists can also relax in comfort at budget hotels nearby or visit some of the local shops to find souvenirs.
- Take a tour of Sun YatSenNanyang Memorial Hall located on Balestier Road to learn about the founder of the Chinese Revolution who visited Singapore extensively during the early 1900s.
- Book a few riding lessons at the Singapore Polo Club, where you can watch practice matches for upcoming polo competitions for free and enjoy luxurious three-course lunches.
- Spend a day shopping at Velocity, an enormous shopping mall just outside of Balestier in nearby Novena where you can buy high-end fashions, jewellery, books, beauty products and much, much more.
The largest airport in the Singapore area is Changi Airport, which receives flights from cities all over the world.
