Local feeling (Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore)
6th May, 2013
I'm planning to visit Singapore for the second time next november. I would like to know the local lifestile and share some time with local people. I will try rent a bedroom in sites like Airbnb or Wimdu insted of going to hostels so I can meet local people and families. Do you have more recomendations? Is there a site or anything to meet local people or do local activities? When in rome.... I'm tring to get the local experience as much as possible. I'm planing to visit also Thailand and Malaysia e so I will put a similar post in that forum. Any help or idea is welcome!!

Check out couch surfing, it is a website where people let you come stay with them for a short period of time. I have never done it but will probably give it a try on one of my next trips as it seems like it would be a great way to meet people.

What about eating at the food courts? Particularly in Singapore and Thailand, visit the food courts in some of the popular shopping centers. I don't know if you'll get to start many conversations with locals, but you'll at least get to experience food and the dining experience the local way.
In Bangkok, head up to the Victory Monument area for snacks and a beer.

The country has a wonderful nightlife. Staying outdoors during the major part of your trip is the best way to do it.

Last time I was in Singapore I stayed at a place called Hostel66 in Woodlands. I think it's the only hostel in the country that is in a residential building. It was amazing and a stone throw from the Causeway. This was two years ago and there were some unfair reviews (mainly from Americans) so I'm not sure it's still open.
