Slinging into Asia - Yelp roars into Singapore

Singapore is home to five million inhabitants who know how to take advantage of this equatorial island nation’s abundant treasures. Well-documented are its shiny casinos and infinity pools, but there’s a lot more to this Little Red Dot than that. Just ask the folks on Yelp Singapore!

Consider, for example, the world’s largest orchid display, the first purpose-built toy museum and more than 15,000 hawker stalls.  The local cuisine is impressive, too: from the growing gourmet coffee and cocktail culture to firm favourites like chili crab, chicken rice and dim sum.  Insomniacs can shop at the Mustafa Centre 24/7, where they can buy iPhones, imported sweets from India and almost everything else imaginable (except pork and alcohol, of course).


The people of Singapore are discerning tastemakers with a strong sense of pride in the diversity of their cuisine and culture, and we’re excited to see how their eclectic tastes will contribute to the growth of their very own Yelp community. Starting today, Yelpers can rate and review businesses throughout the Lion City, from the best kopitiam to a spot to sample spicy sambal stringray.

Log on to Yelp.com.sg or download Yelp’s mobile app to start sharing your own Singaporean secrets.  Businesses, too, can get in on the action at biz.yelp.com.sg by claiming their page for free and building out their profile.  

Majulah Singapura -- Onward Singapore!
