12 Best Luxury Chocolates in Singapore for Special Gifts
Looking for a special gift? Say it with chocolates! Here are some of the best luxury chocolates in Singapore, from bean-to-bar creations to stunning truffle gift boxes
If you ask us, every day of the year is the right time for chocolate. But all chocolates are not created equal; supermarket chocolates might be ok to satiate a late-night craving, but when it comes to Christmas and Valentine’s Day it’s worth stepping up your game for one of the following luxury chocolate brands (partners take note!). From limited-edition bonbons to truffles and much more – here’s the best of the best, when it comes to high-end chocolates! And best of all, these gourmet chocolate brands all offer online ordering – so no excuses!
A homegrown brand that’s expanded to 14 locations across the island, Awfully Chocolate clearly knows their stuff. We are quite partial to their legendary chocolate cake, but if you’re after something more gift-worthy we suggest opting for one of their gorgeous Chocolate Baton Tins ($10. 80 for eleven pieces) or yummy Handmade cookies.

This artisanal chocolatier in lovely Loewen Gardens at Dempsey Hill has everything from Dark Chocolate Raspberry Hearts and Mayan Chili Bonbons to Lemongrass Coconut Truffles and Lemon Pistachio Bonbons for those who prefer slightly fruitier sweets. Everything’s made with Belgian couverture and no preservatives. We love Anjali’s beautiful packaging, and how they seem to have a new collection for each and every season and occasion. Prices from $4 for a chocolate lollipop.

What kicked off this luxury chocolate project was a simple tailored recipe of chocolate truffles that surprised friends, family and even the baker herself. Now, Chocolate Anatomy has moved on to developing exciting new chocolate flavours. A very personal and customized experience is offered here, where customers can participate in the creation process and tailor the chocolate to suit their palates.

With eight locations sprinkled all over the island, it won’t be hard to get your fix of chocolate cake or truffles from Chocolate Origin! Their signature chocolate cake (which is also Halal-certified, BTW!) comes in Original or Dark Chocolate, and are available in a number of sizes to suit any party. The chocolate truffles also come highly recommended for their rich and intense chocolatey flavour.
Chocolate Origin, multiple locations, order.chocolate-origin.com/en_SG
The Dark Gallery
This boutique dark chocolate café (dark chocolate is the best kind of chocolate, by the way: it’s rich in antioxidant flavanoids and is thought to help prevent heart disease!) serves up a bevvy of handmade, artisanal, single-origin chocolates, all made right on site in their Halal kitchen! We are downright drooling over their artisanal bonbons, particularly flavours like White Chocolate Rose Tea, Early Grey Peppermint, and Toffee Sea Salt (all 66% dark chocolate). And their bean-to-bar craft dark chocolates are equally gorgeous, too! Swing by their two shops to see their full selection of chocolates, macarons and cookies. Their hot chocolate is to die for, too! Bonbon sets from $21.
The Dark Gallery, locations at Millennia Walk and Ngee Ann City, www.thedarkgallery.com
Fossa Chocolate is a local, artisanal bean-to-bar luxury chocolate maker that roasts, cracks and winnows cacao beans and refines them into chocolates right in their very own workshop. Each small batch of chocolate is lovingly handcrafted and totally free of additives. Bonus points for working directly with cacao farmers to source only the highest quality beans, too: we love that some of their exquisite chocolate bars showcase ingredients from nearby farms in Indonesia and the Philippines. Why gift flowers when you can give an oh-so pretty Lychee Rose Dark Milk Chocolate Bar ($12, and check out that gorgeous packaging!)? And if you can’t decide, we suggest going for the 6-bar Mixed Chocolate Gift Set ($66). If you’re after something really special, they do customisations too.

So it’s not exactly a homegrown brand, but these luxurious Belgian chocolates have long been synonymous with exquisite confectionary gifting. They always have great gifting options for true chocoholics!
Godiva, Various locations, www.godiva.com.sg
These just might be the most Instagrammable chocolates in Singapore (and that’s really saying something). As the doyenne of all that is sweet in Singapore (and beyond – she’s going global!), Janice Wong has been named Asia’s best pastry chef and has gained worldwide recognition for her avant garde, cutting edge creations. Is it odd that we’d almost want to frame their beautiful chocolates (if they weren’t also totally delicious)?

Lemuel Chocolate sources and import quality cacao beans from cacao farmers and reputable cacao agents around the world. They then manually and carefully sort, roast, crack, winnow and grind them into the individual uniquely delicious chocolate. From single-origin chocolate bars to special gift boxes and bon bons, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Mr Bucket Chocolaterie
New chocolatier in Singapore!

Exciting chocolate bon bon flavours include Salted Egg Yolk, Double Soy Caramel, and boozy Mulled Wine. Yum!

You’ll find something for everyone here!

The 9 Best Chocolates in Singapore for Your Diet [2021 ]
Craving delightful treats but hesitating because you’re on a diet? Well, if so, you’re on the right track: we’ve already narrowed down your options to give you the best chocolates in Singapore for those on a diet!
But before we go right into our selected picks, you should also know that when you’re buying chocolates, there are a lot of things to consider. Especially, if you’re on a diet or you’re health-conscious.
Here are some of the things to keep in mind so you can know more beyond the luxurious packaging of the best Singapore chocolates.
Factors to Consider When Buying Chocolates for Health
Some chocolates are good for your health and some are not. So, as you step into the store or start to shop online, make sure to check the following features first.
Chocolates come in different types: dark, milk, and white. Each contains different percentages of cacao content. Finding the right percentage depends on your personal taste.
A higher percentage typically means that there’ll be less sugar in the bar, making it a healthier option. Also, with a chocolate bar that contains 85% or higher cocoa, you’ll feel satisfied with just a few bites.
Still, bars with below 85% cocoa content are usually hyper-palatable — which means that it’s highly pleasing to the taste buds and you might not be able to control the amount you eat.
Dark chocolates mostly have 70% to 99% cocoa. That means it’d be better to choose this type of chocolate if you’re watching your weight and sugar intake.
When processing chocolates, there are technically 3 necessary ingredients, including cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and a sweetener.
However, many products on the market are being made with additional ingredients that provide no purpose and some may even be bad to our health — such as emulsifiers (carboxymethylcellulose and polysorbate-80).
These are usually added for a smooth and creamy feel that can be found on ice creams, coffee creamers, and chocolates. This ingredient can be a source of inflammation, reduced metabolism, and even weight gain.
So make sure to check the ingredients list first and see if it contains carboxymethylcellulose and polysorbate-80. You don’t want those!
Alkali is used to darken and smoothen the cocoa for a more mellow flavour and deep brown hue. However, it can also greatly affect the health value of cocoa.
It reduces several health benefits for chocolate. Therefore, it’s advisable to choose the one that hasn’t been processed with alkali.
4. Avoid lead and cadmium contamination
Some chocolates contain cadmium and lead compounds that are harmful to our health. Eating chocolates that contain these kinds of ingredients may lead to severe diseases.
This includes damage to the kidney, liver, and bones. Learning disabilities and lower IQ are also part of the health issues so such chocolates are bad for everyone, particularly for the children.
Best Chocolates in Singapore for Dieting
Now that you know more about picking a chocolate treat or bar, we’ll help you find the best chocolates in Singapore that are also good for your health. Here we’ve listed the most recommended chocolate bars made by well-known brands.
They contain high cocoa content and the exact amount of sweetness that’ll surely satisfy your taste buds! Despite coming from international brands, our selections are available at affordable prices in Singapore, so you’ll absolutely love them!

10 Luscious Chocolate Cakes In Singapore – For That Rich, Fudgy And Moist Goodness – DanielFoodDiary.com
Okay. I start by saying food listicles are always contentious, and a Chocolate Cake guide will probably leave some feeling heaty.
While I have previously written a number of cake guides from Basque Burnt Cheesecake, Strawberry Shortcakes, Carrot Cakes, Ondeh Ondeh Cakes and Tarts, Chocolate Cakes are particularly tricky (though I think Durian Cakes will potentially be harder).
One of the reasons why, is it is difficult to get your hands on some (always sold out or hard to order), and many are not available in sliced versions. That means I really got the whole cake, and I don’t encourage food wastage (which mean I did finish the entire Lana Cake).
There are also varying styles, from the old-school type at Jane’s Cake Station, Dino Cake House, Choc.A.Bloc; to newer ones found in cafes. I also try to avoid including a supplier brand, but those baked in-house.

Opening Hours: 10am – 6pm (Tues – Fri), 10am – 5pm (Sat), Closed Sun, Last collection 30 min before closing
Chocolate Fudge Cake ($55 for standard size, 6.5″ x 9.5″, 1150g)
When you talk about the “best chocolate cake in Singapore”, the name “Lana Cakes” will usually surface.
The family-owned and operated business started with Mrs Violet Kwan, and her son has taken over the business.
Getting the cake is not the easiest process, as the shop is located at Greenwood Avenue Bukit Timah.
And you cannot buy a single slice, but the entire cake in which the standard size and serve about 12 to 16 slices. If you dine alone, there’s a lot of chocolate cake.
But you see, people grow up eating her chocolate cake and this has been part of many birthday celebrations across the years.
While some have commented it is not quite the same as before, I still like this classic cake which has this rich fudge layer, very deep-chocolatey flavour with moist and soft chiffon cake layer. Old school (which brings back good memories) and still delicious.
APOC A Peace Of Cake
Chocolate Fudge Cake ($49 for 5”, $69 for 6”, $89 for 7”, excludes $15 delivery charge)
Of all those listed here, this is the only Chocolate Cake from a home-based bakery. But APOC came highly recommended from readers and friends, and even Kit Chan and Chef Willin Low consider themselves as fans.
Ordering was considered fuss-free – you conncect via their Instagram DM, settle payment via Paynow, and delivery comes at a stipulated window (10am – 1pm, or 4pm – 7pm).
The signature is the 70% Guanaja Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake, made using premium French dark chocolate, French cream and French butter.
The ‘magical’ moment came when you open the box, when the chocolate mirror glaze was so reflective you could almost see your face (drooling) over).
I loved that the cake was moist with a thick layer of dark chocolate ganache. But there were parts that I preferred better – the soft velvety fudge (close to the glaze) compared to the centre. I totally understand why people would turn APOC converts after having this – it was luxurious tasting compared to the usual old-school styles.
Eating recommendation: it is best to consume the cake fresh; and if you need to refrigerate, let it sit at room temperature for about 1 to 2 hours before consumption without opening the cake box.
Bukit Timah Plaza #02-K47, 1 Jalan Anak Bukit Singapore 588996
Tel: +65 6466 4000
Opening Hours: 9:45am – 7:30pm (Mon – Sat), Closed Sun
Signature Chocolate Fudge Cake ($44 for 800g, 6-8 pcs)
Accordingly, owner Vicky Tan is niece of Violet Kwan from Lana cake, thus you would therefore find some certain similarities between the two cakes.
At least you can get sliced cakes over at this non-descript shop on Level 2 of Bukit Timah Plaza.
I wonder if it is psychological or not, but I still prefer Lana’s a tad due to the fudge. The sponge of Vicky’s didn’t seem as moist comparatively.
However, with all that said, this is still a not-too-sweet and rich chocolate cake with some of the nostalgic, rustic chocolate cake savour.

Opening Hours: 12pm – 6:30pm (Mon – Fri), 12pm – 4pm (Sat – Sun)
Chocolate Truffle ($8 for slice, $80 for whole cake)
While LUNA Patisserie is already quite known for its Orh Nee Cake, you almost forget that they have this Chocolate Truffle cake.
Get the whole cake and you can almost see your reflection in that shiny glaze.
Beneath this smooth, dark chocolate glaze lies a light and fluffy choco-buttermilk sponge cake.
A gentle slice reveals a luscious ganache made from Valrhona Guanaja 70% couverture chocolate, the first in the word to reach 70% cocoa.
Indulge in this chocoholic dream, capturing the original taste of cacao beans.

Signature Dark Chocolate Cake ($9 per slice, $55/6inch whole, $75/8inch whole)
The Dark Gallery at Great World Singapore’s first dark choco-centric café and boutique concept.
Their most popular is the Dark Chocolate Cake made with flavourful and velvety 66% dark chocolate mousse layered with rich chocolate sponge.
They use premium butter, French cocoa powder and Valrhona dark chocolate couvertures for the cake; plus it is not overly sweet.
If you find their sponge cake sufficiently moist, that is because they use brown sugar in the sponge cake to keep it moist. The cake is also topped with fruity single origin Pahang cacao nibs and crunch dark chocolate pearls – so you get a variety of textures.
Palais Renaissance, 390 Orchard Road, #02 – 09A, Singapore 238871
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
Double Chocolate Blackout Cake ($$17.67 per slice, $58 for 15cm 1.5kg, $90 for 20cm 3kg)
Of all the Chocolate Cakes featured in this guide, PS.Cafe’s Double Chocolate Blackout Cake stands up for being different. It is called “double” for a good reason.
This is a PS.Cafe classic and has been the top seller for many years having been on the menu since the early days of the café.
Made of tower of two moist, chocolatey cakes layered and smothered with rich dark chocolate ganache.
If you order it by slice in store, it is served slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – much needed to balance out that ultra-richness.
Yes, this is a very dense and indulgent cake, that you can feel the sin just trickling down the throat
If you order the whole cake, there is a mega 3kg version for all the chocolate you ever need.

Specialty Original Chocolate Cake ($7.80 per slice, $39.80 onwards for whole)
Chocolate Origin offers cakes with two promising choices – subtly sweet original and bitter dark.
For the original, what you get is two generous layers of chocolate truffles enveloped between two thin and light layers of chocolate sponge cake, finally coated by a luxurious chocolate ganache.
While most commercial cakes have thick layers of sponge, Chocolate Origin’s stands out with a higher percentage of chocolate mousse made with Belgian dark chocolate with no extra sugar, colourings or preservatives.
The slice literally melted in the mouth, though can be a little rich for some to handle. I personally find this one of the better ones in terms of chocolate specialty commercial cakes.
Laurent Cafe & Chocolate Bar
The Pier at Robertson, 80 Mohamed Sultan Road, Singapore 239013
Opening Hours: 2pm – 11pm (Tues), 1pm – 11pm (Wed, Thurs, Sat), 1pm – 11:30pm (Fri), 11am – 10pm (Sun)
Pure Chocolate Cake ($73 for whole cake, $11.40 per slice)
Laurent Café is considered an under-rated café located at Robertson Quay, where you can have a cake, coffee and watching people go (or cycle) by.
Their signature Pure Chocolate Cake is made from a pure origin dark chocolate, using the finest cacao bean from South America.
There are two layers of moist chocolate sponge, dark chocolate creamy heart and dark chocolate mousse. Plus there is no alcohol, or gluten added.
Also recommended is their Lola’s Cake with luscious fillings though I thought the sponge layer was slightly on the dry side.
Greenwich V, The Star Vista, VivoCity, Marina Bay Link Mall, [email protected], ION Orchard, Raffles City, Tampines 1, Suntec City, Novena Square, Great World, Jem and Marina Bay Sands
Super Stacked Chocolate Cake ($78 for whole, $7.90 per slice)
Awfully Chocolate is best known for its signature All Chocolate Cake with dark roast flavour. Of course, there are also the Chocolate Banana, and Chocolate Rum & Cherry Cake.
There is also this Super Stacked Chocolate Cake which is inspired by the traditional Southeast Asian Lapis Cake.
Each cake layer is baked one at a time, so a completed cake with six layers of cake and fudge (twelve in total) takes almost four hours to complete.
You can say this is a richer and denser version of the signature All Chocolate Cake. When I ordered a slice in store, they offered to heat it up which made the centre a lot moister.
Can almost feel the chocolate overload in the throat, but that’s precisely why some would love this.
5 Simon Rd, Singapore 545893
Opening Hours: 10am – 10:30pm (Mon – Sun)
Lola’s Chocolate Cake (from $50 for 8″)
Residents staying near Hougang should be familiar with Lola’s Café, which is the to-go-to brunch place in that area.
Known for its unpretentious food, it is typically packed with groups of families and friends during the weekends, especially for the brunch hours from 10am to 3pm.
I happened to notice its Chocolate Cake during a recent visit, included with dark chocolate sponge, Belgium chocolate Italian meringue buttercream, hazelnut feuilletine, dark chocolate ganache, and chocolate hazelnut cubes. (Their Seasalt Chocolate Tart is also quite popular.)
The sponge area would have been slightly moister, but I liked there was a varying textures especially the soft cube at the top.

6 places to find artisanal chocolate in Singapore
If you’re tired of supermarket chocolates loaded with sugar, you’re not alone. The rise of artisanal chocolates reflects a growing movement to show more for the cacao bean. This means a rising appreciation for single origin bars and for the pure pleasures of dark chocolate.
It isn’t just a snobbish affair reserved for gourmands of course. Chocolatiers around the world — and in Singapore as well — are bringing in creative expressions with infusions as well as new ways to enjoy chocolate.
Thanks to the Internet and some local ingenuity, you don’t have to pull strings or go out of the country in search of the best chocolate bars Mother Earth has to offer. Here’s where to enjoy real, good chocolate.
Chocolatier Anjali Gupta is one of the earliest pioneers in the local bean-to-bar movement and her progress — from a Pasarbella stall to a boutique and workshop in Dempsey — is one that reflects Singapore’s growing love for bean-to-bar creations. Having trained atUK Callebaut Chocolate Academy, Gupta is more than just a hobbyist in this field. She experiments with a range of local spices and flavours, offering interesting creations like ginger cumin bonbons and a dark chocolate ganache infused with star anise with her own brand of chocolates Anjalichocolat.
Beans to Bars
Beans to Bars is a distributor that brings in award-winning chocolate bars made by small-batch crafters from around the world. The range is limited, focusing on organic and sustainable creations such as Indonesia’s Krakakoa featuring bars ethically crafted in Bandar Lampung. Some other interesting ones hail from Australia, such as The Smooth Chocolator which focuses only on single origin bars and Monsieur Truffle’s chocolate bars that are mixed with coffee beans or bits of honeycomb. Beans to Bars has stock at Naisse and Dean & Deluca, but we think it’s best to shop online where there are more selections (with very limited stock though) to explore.
The Dark Gallery

Enjoying good artisanal chocolate doesn’t have to be just high-browed business.The Dark Gallery makes savouring craft chocolate a more approachable activity. As its name suggests, the cafe/boutique weaves in dark chocolate into a variety of desserts such as macarons, cookies and cakes. There are even tasting platters of single-origin dark chocolate ice creams as well as pairing sets of coffee with desserts. The Dark Gallery also offers tasting box sets of single-origin bars for enjoying at home, ranging from a delicious 35% Papua New Guinea milk chocolate to the intense and fruity 75% Tanzania dark chocolate.
If you like the decadent melt-in-your-mouth quality in chocolates, then Demochoco is the chocolatier to go for. The local crafter specialises in nama-choco, Japanese-style truffles mixed in with fresh cream and dusted all over with cacao powder. Demochoco uses high-quality cacao beans for its chocolates, ranging from single-origin truffles to infusions with brandy or salted egg. Go for the Sweet Flower Meadow box set which sees a set of four nama-chocos presented in a beautiful wooden box.

Award-winning homegrown company Fossa Chocolate is perhaps Singapore’s gold standard in local chocolate crafting. Besides single-origin chocolate bars, the makers also offer it in different forms — as drinking chocolate, cacao nibs or bite-sized ‘gems’. What’s also worth trying are the other creative takes on chocolate bars. There are special releases such as an intriguing dark chocolate bar peppered with shrimp and bonito and other collaborative creations with tea or sake-infusions.
(Photo: Hello Chocolate)
Hello Chocolate is a chocolate lover’s haven, having curated one of the biggest selections of artisanal bars from all over the world. It has in stock what’s deemed ‘the best milk chocolate in the world’ and other award-winning creations from Europe and America. But there are lots of gourmet options to try as well if one’s feeling adventurous. Try Naive’s milk chocolate studded with porcini mushrooms or Ocelot’s vegan dark chocolate with bee pollen and mango bits.

list of gifts and souvenirs, prices
When a vacation is approaching its logical end, any traveler begins to think about what to bring from Singapore as a gift to please loved ones, friends and colleagues. Here is a list of souvenirs from Singapore that you should definitely take with you in your luggage when returning home.
What to bring from Singapore
- Food. Let’s start with the most important thing. Our suitcase is not rubber, and in Singapore there are so many delicious things that you can’t try everything.Singapore is a multinational city, here you can find Indian cuisine, Chinese, Malay, Thai and Vietnamese. But our rating of edible souvenirs is as follows:
- Chili Crab Pasta is the main culinary invention of Sigapur.
Chili crab paste 7 SGD each in a regular hypermarket
- Even locals will recommend the pasta to be tried in Singapore first and taken home. This is a terribly tasty, but scorching dish. The package in the photo contains several portions of ready-made pasta (or without it) and sauce.
- You only need a crab (just something). Crab meat is fried in tomato paste (or with tomatoes) and seasoned with chili sauce. Served with noodles (pasta).
- The taste is sweet and spicy, lovers of spicy dishes will like it. By the way, in 2011, chili crab pasta was included in the list of the 50 most delicious dishes in the world. You can buy pasta in almost any supermarket.
- Bacqua. In Malaysia this product is called long yok, and in China it is called rogan. These are pieces of any meat, usually pork, but there is also chicken, rolled into a plate and dried.
This is what a bacqua counter looks like
- The packs of bacqua and the meat itself are bright red, which is why bacqua is especially popular as a gift for the Chinese New Year, although you can buy it at any other time.
- Bakkwa tastes sweet and salty, probably a Russian person will like it as an appetizer “with beer”, but we haven’t tried this combination, since beer + bakkwa in Singapore comes out at the price of black caviar. Bakkwa shops are common in the city center and Chinatown.The cost per kilogram starts at 30 SGD, with an average of about 45-50 SGD.
- Chili Crab Pasta is the main culinary invention of Sigapur.
- Anything durian related. Of course, Singapore is not at all the durian capital of the world, but if your friends at home do not yet know what kind of fruit it is, then be sure to bring them a similar souvenir.
The selection of durian chocolates in each store is huge
- It can be sweets, chips, candied fruits, dried durian plates. Of course, this is not exactly what fresh fruit is, but the smell and aftertaste will be remembered by your friends for a long time.
- Durian sweets and chips generally take up little space and will fit easily into your luggage. These sweets can be bought at any store, but they are cheapest in shops in Chinatown.
- What else to bring from Singapore, of course Kaya coconut jam, which is very popular in Singapore cuisine. An Asian breakfast is not nutella toast, but kaya toast.
- The recipe for kaya is quite simple: it requires coconut milk, egg yolks and sugar to make.But it is better not to cook yourself, but to bring it in a beautiful package as a gift to your mother (or mother-in-law).
- It is believed that kaya first originated on the island of Hainan (China), but is especially common in Singapore and Malaysia. You can buy kaya in absolutely any supermarket and also at the duty-free at the airport, the cost is 5-10 SGD per bottle.
Coconut jam Kaia
- Chips Irvin’s Salted Egg Fish Skin. This is a completely new trend in Singaporean cuisine.Chips made from, attention, dried fish skin with the taste of salted eggs.
Fish skin chips
- You should definitely bring this souvenir home. The taste is specific, but worth trying at least once. Moreover, these chips are sold in absolutely any store.
- Marmalade from Straits Preserves. This company makes homemade marmalade and jams, just like your grandmother’s, only from tropical fruits. The jars are only 220 grams, so they won’t take up much space in your luggage, but they will definitely delight your sweet-tooth friends.
Famous marmalade or jam flavored with the famous drink of Singapore – Singapore Sling
- Chocolate. You can buy local chocolate in any shop or grocery store. As a gift, take candy in the shape of Merlion figurines – the symbol of Singapore.
- Spices. As mentioned above, Singapore is the center of all the most diverse cuisines of Southeast Asia, so in this city you will find any seasonings, spices and sauces. It is most profitable to buy spices as a set in jars in Chinatown.
- Drinks. I’m still thinking, should I change the drinks with food in this list of souvenirs?
The country’s main alcoholic beverage – Singapore Sling (45 SGD per 0.375l)
- Singapore Sling. Coming to Singapore and not trying a Singapore Sling cocktail is like not seeing the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
- This cocktail was actually invented in Singapore at the beginning of the 20th century at the Raffles Hotel bar, and is now recognized by the International Bartenders Association as the national drink of Singapore.Now you definitely have to try or cook it.
- Write down the recipe: Take a cocktail glass and fill it to the top with ice. In a shaker mix 120 ml of pineapple juice, 30 ml of gin, 15 ml of lime juice, 15 ml of cherry liqueur, 10 ml of triple sec liqueur, 10 ml of benedictine, 5 ml of grenadine and literally a couple of drops (up to 1 ml) of Angostura bitter.
- Whisk in a shaker with ice and pour into a glass. Garnish with a cherry or pineapple wedge. You can try a cocktail in almost any bar in Singapore, but the most “original” one will be prepared for you in the very bar of the Raffles hotel.
- In supermarkets (most often in large shopping centers) the cocktail is sold in bottles (from 0.33 cans to 0.7 l bottles) in special sections with alcoholic beverages. The cost will range from SGD 6 per bottle to SGD 45 per bottle.
- TWG tea. If you have friends who love tea, be sure to check out the TWG elite tea shops in Singapore. It is better to buy it in specialized stores or at the duty free at the airport. More details about duty free Singapore.
TWG Tea Shop
- There are several varieties of this tea, but the best gifts are TWG Silver Moon Tea, TWG Grand Crus Prestige French Earl Gray, Da Hong Pao and Tie Guan Yin. The cost can range from 15 SGD to 90 SGD per hundred grams. In total, there are over 800 TWG teas, and there is not enough life (and money) to try everything.
- Ette Tea. These are interesting teas with unusual ingredients. Have you ever tasted rice with chicken or rice fried in coconut milk? You can also buy tea flavored with chips, green pandanus cake, coconut flakes and chili.
- Jewelry. If your ladies (or you yourself) love jewelry, bring them a ring or a pendant made of precious metals or jewelry as a gift from Singapore:
- What else to bring from Singapore: mugs, T-shirts, magnets, bags, etc. The simplest options for souvenirs. You can buy it at any Chinese store in Chinatown.
- Bags from 2.5 SGD
- jerseys from 5-10 SGD
- magnets and key fobs – 3 pieces for 10 SGD (although we saw 5 for 10 SGD, but these are very simple magnets).
- Merlion figurines from 5 SGD (depending on size).
- Batik. This fabric is usually silk, painted with hot wax. Real batik is not cheap, but batik dresses, scarves, ponchos will be wonderful gifts for women.
Batik – wax-painted silk scarves.
- Fan. You can also bring hand-printed silk fans from Singapore as a gift. They are foldable, and the fan body is made of wood (sandalwood or bamboo).
- Tiger Balm.
Tiger Balm, available all over Singapore
- This is the Thai-Malay equivalent of the Vietnamese star. The balm is warming (in a red jar) and cooling (in a blue one).
- Warming balm increases blood flow in blood vessels and is used to treat pain in joints, muscles, pain from bruises and sprains.
- Cooling – For the relief of migraines and headaches, nasal congestion, insect bites.
- Cost from 5 SGD per bottle.
- Gadgets. First of all smartphones. All new Apple products appear in Singapore at the same time as the United States. Also in Singapore there are research centers Lenovo and Acer, so all the new products of these brands also appear here. And the prices for the brands mentioned above are among the cheapest in the world.
In conclusion: I hope we answered the question of what to bring from Singapore, and shopping in this city of the future will bring you real pleasure.
Bright emotions on the faces of your relatives and friends.

90,053 90,000 gifts, souvenirs, the best places to shop
Singapore is a country of the brightest contrasts.In the local quarters you can taste national dishes of the three largest world cultures or dine in a luxury European restaurant. Here you can conclude the biggest deal or lose a fortune in a casino, buy the most modern electronics and admire the achievements of science, or indulge in contemplation and immerse yourself in Zen.
Of course, shopping in Singapore is also very contrasting. Many tourists go to this country for shopping. Indeed, here you can easily find the things of world fashion houses, in the next quarter buy an Arabian scarf, and during a break, have a snack with Chinese noodles with Indian spices.The souvenir hunt turns into an exciting excursion with pleasant gastronomic stops. We will try to tell you about this in as much detail as possible.
The national currency of the country is the Singapore dollar (see the current exchange rate in our currency converter). Please note that you will not be able to change rubles in Singapore, so it is best to travel with US dollars or euros. And there is also an option to exchange rubles for Singapore dollars in Russia, so as not to lose on a double conversion.If you have not done so, in Singapore you should go to a bank or official Licensed Money Changer exchangers (they are at hotels, in many shopping centers, even in the metro). With credit cards, it’s not easy here: for each operation you will be charged as much as 15% of the commission, Russian cards are rarely accepted.
There are tax-free services in Singapore, but the return rate is not very high – only 7%. To get VAT, you need to spend at least S $ 100 at a time, fill out a receipt at the Global Refund Tax Free Shopping counter, and then present it to customs along with your receipt.
So what can you bring from Singapore?
Apparel & Accessories
The Big Sale in Singapore takes place only once a year. It starts at the end of May and ends at the beginning of August. During the Great Singapore Sale, most stores cut prices by 50 percent or more.
If you are planning a thorough shopping experience, head to CityLink Mall, Singapore’s underground shopping city. You can find almost everything here: from the most democratic brands to designer collections.However, there are so many shopping centers in Singapore that it will not be difficult for you to find everything you need (and even more).
If you’re in the mood for luxury shopping, Orchard Road, Singapore’s trendiest neighborhood, awaits. Here, on a huge shopping street, there are many boutiques where you can buy things from famous designers. By the way, this area of Singapore is also on sale, so at the beginning of summer you will have a chance to “shop” at very attractive prices.
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands shopping center should be mentioned separately. This is one of the most recognizable buildings in Singapore. The shopping area smoothly flows into the hotel of the same name, a food court with Michelin-starred restaurants and the already famous rooftop pool. Shopping in Marina Bay Sands is expensive: only boutiques are concentrated here.
There is a quarter in Singapore called Little India, and if you want to buy things with the national flavor of this country, you should go there.They will still be a part of Singapore, as this culture is very much appreciated here. Pay attention to the saree as well as the beautiful gold jewelry. Buying them in Singapore is very profitable – the prices here are much lower than Russian ones. In a word, it makes sense to buy gifts for loved ones right here.
For shopping in this part of the city, it is worth stopping by the Mustafa shopping center – there are the lowest prices and a huge selection of goods.
Lovers of silk scarves, massive jewelry, as well as high-quality leather (bags, belts, wallets) should look into the Arabian Quarter of Singapore.Here you will find traditional shopping in oriental style – bright light fabrics, bakhoor scent in the air and lively trade.
Let’s discard stereotypes and recall the famous Chinese silk. It’s really worth bringing it from Singapore: it’s profitable, and the material is beautiful. For shopping, head to Chinatown. In addition, here you can buy traditional Chinese kimonos, cute dressing gowns made of light fabrics, high-quality cotton.
Local markets and shopping malls in Singapore often have specialty shops or shops selling traditional batik items.You will recognize them by their beautiful prints on silk fabric. Buy a stole, blouse or bag using the batik technique – they look great, and you will wear the memory of your trip to Singapore for many years to come.
Don’t miss the local jewelery store. In Singapore, it is profitable to buy gold, as well as jewelry with precious stones. Since in this country national cultures from different parts of the planet have mixed, the choice of accessories here is simply amazing.European classics or oriental designs with massive stones? There is a choice for every taste.
Many tourists seek to bring home electronics from Singapore. The question of buying it should be approached very carefully so as not to miscalculate.
If you liked something, don’t rush to buy it right away. Just in case, check the price of the same equipment in Russia (check in online stores), convert it into dollars, and only then make a decision. Sometimes buying electronics in Singapore is not as profitable as it is commonly believed.
Also note that not all equipment will work correctly in Russia. So, for example, some TV models simply do not catch our frequencies. In a word, before buying something like this in Singapore, check with the seller for this point.
Why is electronics so often bought in Singapore if prices are not always attractive? The fact is that in this country all new items appear first of all. And if you want to buy the latest model of this or that gadget, you can easily do it in Singapore (and not for a fabulous sum), but in Russia you will have to stand in line and overpay heavily, since prices only decrease after some time.
Shopping in this category will be most profitable during the Big Sale, that is, in the first summer months. In search of electronics, stroll through major malls and chain retail stores.

Cosmetics and medicines
Many tourists want to bring medicines from Singapore. If you are one of them, keep in mind that you will need a prescription to buy many drugs.But dietary supplements and traditional Asian products can be exported freely.
Women will definitely find souvenirs of Singapore – just go shopping at local beauty stores. In this country, you can profitably buy goods from Asian brands and luxury European cosmetics.
From Asian cosmetics in Singapore it is worth buying products based on snail mucin, colloidal gold or swallow’s nests. It also makes sense to pay attention to popular brands that are already known in Russia – it is profitable to bring these cosmetics from Singapore.
Taking European brands is also worth it, but only during the sales season. Shopping will be especially successful during this time.
Cosmetics of any type should be found in shopping centers – there are specialized departments. Some of them are also sold in supermarkets. If you are interested in shampoos, deodorants, cloth masks and other “popular” beauty products – you are there.
In Singapore, as in other Asian countries, herbal medicines are loved. We are talking about healing teas and popular supplements (capsules or noni juice, chlorella, spirulina, maca, etc.).All of these can be bought at small private pharmacies. These supplements are available without a prescription, but we would advise you to check with your doctor before taking them.
If you choose something as a gift, but do not know which medicines and herbs you want to buy, ask the sellers. They can easily advise on remedies for specific ailments.
Of the medicines in Singapore, tourists often buy balms. The most popular of them is brindle. A good gift for loved ones can be a beautiful set in gift wrapping, which has long become one of the most popular items in Singapore duty-free.
Perhaps the most popular medicine from Singapore is Kwan Loong Medicated Oil. It is believed to be able to cure colds, as well as to help with motion sickness, headaches, and even heals sprains. In a word, this is such a miracle bottle for a dozen sores. In Singapore, you can buy it at pharmacies or souvenir shops, but the best option is to take a bottle of this medicine at the duty-free shop.
You can buy souvenirs in Singapore in numerous shops for tourists, in shopping centers or markets.If you enjoy walking around the bazaars, do not forget to visit all three quarters representing different parts of the world.
If you did not have time to buy souvenirs in Singapore itself, do not worry – everything can be found in the shops of Changi Airport. It is rightfully considered one of the most comfortable in the world, and a large number of shops are concentrated here. Prices here are not worse than city ones, so feel free to plan shopping in Singapore’s Changi.
This place is so popular, and the prices here are so democratic that even the locals come here to relax with their whole families.It seems as if this is not an airport, but a real amusement park and shopping center!
So which souvenirs to buy?
There are so many bans in Singapore that it involuntarily generates a lot of jokes. So, for example, you cannot feed the birds here, walk naked in your own apartment, chew gum (by the way, for the import of gum into the country they can be fined or even put in a cell for several months). In Singapore, you will be fined for spitting on the street, eating on public transport, or smoking.And also if you suddenly forget to flush the public toilet. And this is far from the end.
Of course, souvenir manufacturers offer tourists to buy something to remember these rules. In shops and markets in Singapore, you can buy mugs, caps, T-shirts and other goods with prohibition signs and an indication of the amount of the fine. These souvenirs are traditionally considered one of the best-selling, as there is nothing like this in any other country.
Do you like Arabic carpets? The good news is that they can be bought at a bargain price in the relevant area of Singapore.The same applies to natural fabrics, hookahs, copper dishes and other standard oriental paraphernalia. Take a look at this area, stroll through the souvenir shops. During this shopping you will find gifts for loved ones at extremely attractive prices.
A very popular souvenir from Singapore is a silk umbrella. Interested in a cheaper option? Then take a silk fan. It is difficult to say why tourists bring these things from Singapore so often, because they are not really needed in everyday life.Probably, it’s all about their beauty (after all, it’s a great gift) and an attractive price.
The symbol of Singapore is a creature with a lion’s head and a fish’s tail, which is called Merlion. You will find his figurines in almost every souvenir shop. Most often they repeat the outlines of the city’s main fountain. In addition, Merlion is often decorated with ceramic vases, typical tourist mugs or T-shirts, magnets and other souvenir paraphernalia.
Perhaps it is worth buying something like that as a souvenir, because except in Singapore, Merlion is nowhere so revered.This is the real part of the national culture of the country.
The range of prices here is quite large. For example, a small keychain will cost you 2-3 SGD, while a copper pen holder will cost you 30-40 USD.
The largest selection of ceramics in Singapore awaits you in the Arab Quarter – this is where the most profitable shopping is. Bring home nice plates, mugs, or fancy vases. They are inexpensive, and their quality is excellent.
Accessories with the image of Merlion are especially popular among tourists.
Perhaps this is the most unusual and most expensive souvenir from Singapore. Local craftsmen “chain” live orchids in gold – a very beautiful gift is obtained. They are decorated with necklaces, earrings and other women’s accessories, photo frames, business card holders, stationery stands and much more.
You can buy this outlandish flower in almost any part of Singapore in the boutiques of the RISIS company, as well as in the store at Changi Airport. Prices start at S $ 60 for a small accessory.
Singapore is a true treasure of Asia in this regard. It is here that the “hunters” for antiques will find the most interesting finds. Goods from a wide variety of countries in the region flock here, so you can bring home many unusual goods.
There are many antique shops in Singapore, so you can easily find where to spend your money on something unique. If you are confused – go to the Kwok gallery of the Far East shopping center (there is a very large selection).
Food & Beverage
Singapore has a cult of food.It is easy to find familiar European dishes in this country, but it is much more interesting to try something that reflects a mixture of cultures. Omelet with oysters, Chinese noodles with Indian spices, and Malay – with shellfish, sausage pancakes and much more: original, bright, aromatic. Be sure to drop by a cafe and grab ginger tea with condensed milk and whipped foam, have a bite to eat and go for a gastronomic shopping.
The markets in Singapore are home to the most extraordinary foods, from spices you’ve never seen before, to shark fins and swallow nests.There is a night market in Chinatown where you can buy inexpensive tasty gifts and good food.
Looking for a delicious souvenir in Singapore for a loved one? Buy a jar of TWG Silver Moon Tea. You can buy it in city malls (check out specialty stores) or Changi’s duty free shop. You will recognize it by its blue and silver box with the sea and the moon.
A good gift from Singapore can be a set of TWG tea bags Grand Crus Prestige French Earl Gray.This is a very popular premium tea made from French recipes. It can be bought in the same places as Silver Lunar.
You can also bring home loose Indian or Chinese tea from Singapore. We believe you have already guessed where to go after them – all the same national quarters.
Looking for a gift for children in Singapore? Buy a chocolate bar with Merlion on the package. This is a very popular Singaporean souvenir, and it is also incredibly delicious.Children and those with a sweet tooth will definitely like it.
If you are looking for a more expensive gift, take a look at the Godiva chocolate set in a gift box. It depicts all the same Merlion, and all the candies inside are very interesting and unusual. The best way to buy these sweets is from Singapore airport.
Irvin’s Salted Egg Fish Skin Chips are one of the most popular gastronomic souvenirs in Singapore. They are made from fish skin and covered with a salted egg crust.It doesn’t sound very attractive, but in fact, many people like this product. It is worth buying such chips in Singapore, if only for a try. Look for them in supermarkets – they are trending now, so they are almost everywhere.
And again salted eggs in the form of snacks, only this time with durian. We advise you to buy Fragrance’s Durian Omelette Crisp packaging in Singapore – the most profitable way to do this is in Changi’s duty-free shop. Yes, the taste is not for everybody. But where else can you try a crispy, salty durian-flavored omelet? This is only here! It is better not to carry such a Singaporean souvenir as a gift for children, but it is definitely worth treating your friends.
Local cuisine traditionally includes the use of a wide variety of spices. That is why the most popular gastronomic souvenir from Singapore is a set of jars with various spices. The choice here is simply huge: from traditional Indian curries to unusual Chinese mixtures with outlandish ingredients. It is best to buy spices in Singapore in the markets in popular neighborhoods (especially the night bazaar in Chinatown).
This product resembles meat chips.Outwardly, it looks like jerky, but has a pronounced sweet-salty taste. You can buy a freshly prepared Bak Kwa in Singapore to try (it is more profitable to do it in Chinatown), and then look into the supermarket, take a package of Fragrance Sliced Tendon BBQ Pork Bak Kwa and bring it home as a gift to your loved ones. By the way, they are also in duty-free. And in Singapore, Bak Kwa is considered a traditional gift for the New Year – you can make such a present to your friends.
If you buy Buck Kwa by weight, be prepared to pay S $ 50 to S $ 70 per kilogram.
This is both a dish and a sauce. In almost every cafe in Singapore you can buy Kaya toast with an interesting impregnation of a special “jam”. Kaia – coconut jam with eggs and sugar. This unusual delicacy can be bought in supermarkets or in duty-free shops. A small glass jar is most convenient. Come back home and give your friends a real Singaporean breakfast!
A jar of Kaya costs approximately S $ 8-10.
This is the name of the most popular alcoholic cocktail in Singapore.You can buy it at almost any bar. It consists of brandy, gin, lime, orange and pineapple juices. However, you can take a bottle of this cocktail home to extend your vacation memories or treat friends. The sling is sold in bottles ranging from 0.5 to 1 liter and prices range from about S $ 30 to S $ 80 (depending on volume). You can buy it in almost every souvenir shop, but the most profitable is in specialized “alcohol markets” or duty-free Changi.
