Guido - Highlights of Asia: Singapore
, uitg.: Edicola Publ., (maart 2019), ISBN 9789492920393,
paperback, 160 blz., €22,50
Singapore is de culinaire hoofdstad van Azië, niet in de laatste plaats door de honderden food centres in de stad, waar sommige eetstalletjes zelfs zijn bekroond met een Michelinster. Het is bovendien een enorm groene stad. Je treft er parken en natuurgebieden aan met uitbundige tropische vegetatie en je kunt er op witte zandstranden onder de kokospalmen liggen. en dan zijn de vele attracties en talloze grote winkelcentra nog niet genoemd, die maken dat je je geen seconde hoeft te vervelen bij een bezoek aan deze kleurrijke bestemming.
Schrijver en reisjournalist Guido Derksen, auteur van meer dan dertig boeken, komt regelmatig in Singapore. in deze reisgids beschrijft hij alle highlights in de ultramoderne stadstaat, van de bijzondere moderne gebouwen en de sprookjesachtige Gardens by the Bay rond Marina Bay tot het oude Chinatown, Little India en Kampong Glam. Ook de veelzijdige cultuur en tradities en de talloze culinaire genoegens van Singapore komen uitgebreid aan bod.
