My dearest Cousin Justin

I have heard about your plans to visit Singapore! I am so excited! I would love it if you could pay me a visit!

In your interest of learning about the cultural and modern aspects of Singapore, I had a few places in mind that may be of interest to you!

The first cultural aspect is Chinatown, where you can enjoy a trishaw ride around the vicinity and have a view at the beautiful restored shophouses an colonial buildings! There are traditional medicine halls and teahouses too! Pop into them to get a taste of Singapore’s Chinatown.

The other cultural place is Little India. It is one of the most colourful districts in Singapore! They have gaily painted shophouses selling Indian apparel and other wares! To remember your trip to Little India, get souvenirs at any time of the day at the 24-hour shopping centre, Mustafa Centre.

A modern aspect would also be Chinatown. There are new modern buildings and quirky caf├ęs, how interesting!

Another modern attraction I recommend is the Singapore flyer. It holds the reputation of the world’s biggest observation wheel. Take in the panoramic views of Singapore’s iconic land marks and have dinner there too!

At Little India, you and your family can have a meal while looking around. You can try one os their specialities, fish head curry, a unique Singaporean dish.

For your meal, these are the local delicacies every Singaporean drools at. Laksa, that’ is noddles in spicy soup, chili crab, a must try, and Hainanese chicken rice. All scrumptious, you have my word. Almost every hawker centre all around Singapore has these local dishes for you to sink your teeth into.

Keeping my fingers crossed that Aunt Julia, Uncle Thomas and you would pay me and my family a visit! I really miss you, as it has been so long since our last encounter. Hope my recommendations are of use to you!

Your Singaporean cousin,

Abigail Tan

Dear Emil,
How are you? I am fine. I heard from Mom that Aunt Natalya and Uncle Matthias want to bring you to visit Singapore. I am really excited that you would come here! Therefore, I planned out places you should visit during your stay.

Since you like culture, I recommend you to tour around the streets of Chinatown. Chinatown is a vibrant little area in Singapore with Chinese-styled buildings and some colonial buildings too. You can buy many souvenirs from the shops there. Chinatown is full of traditional art. You can get to see the lives of different people in the past. Do try the delights there too! You should also consider taking a trishaw ride around town! You can go on the second day as you would probably be tired on the first day. After Chinatown,I suggest that you go to Little India. Like Chinatown, Little India is one of the hotspots for culture and the arts. Little India has many shops selling beverages, food and spices. Drop by the Mustafa 24-hour shopping center if you want to do some shopping at night.

Don't forget about the modern aspects of Singapore too! On the fourth day, do make some time to ride on the Singapore Flyer, one of the world's largest observation wheel. Take a look at Singapore's most famous landmarks during the ride, such as the Merlion Park, Marina Bay Sands, and Empress Palace. You can also shop at Marina Bay after the ride. There are many shopping malls there.

For lunch and dinner, head down to the nearest hawker center and partake in some delicious local food like Bah Ku Teh, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Chilli Crab and many more! You will definitely enjoy the food here!

I hope I can see you in Singapore soon! I just know you will enjoy it here!
See you soon,

Dear Joshua, 
I am delighted to hear that you are coming to Singapore. I bet we are going to have a lot of fun together, visiting all the different places and sampling many of the local delights here in Singapore. I am so excited, and I am sure you are too!

I will be taking you to the cultural attractions first. The first cultural place of interest is in Chinatown. It is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. It contains many relics of all sort that supposedly was once the Buddha's, isn't that amazing how after all these years the relics are still there! We will still be touring the place, admiring all the relics. After that, we will be proceeding to our next cultural location of interest.

The next cultural place of interest is the shophouses in Little India. The shophouses are back to back as there is not much space there. Isn't it fascinating that so many shophouses can be just at one place? When we go there, there will be Indians selling gold bangles and spices. You might want to buy some of the spices to try cooking at home. After touring the place, we will be going to one of the restaurants in Little India to try out one of Little India's signature dish - fish head curry, a unique and simply irresistible dish.

After lunch, I will be taking you to one of the world's biggest observation wheel! It is proudly named the Singapore Flyer. We would be able to see all the iconic landmarks while we are on this gigantic wheel, like Marina Bay, Merlion Park, and Empress Palace. The view from the top of the wheel is breathtaking and amazing, especially at night as Singapore lights up. You must not miss this one in a lifetime experience.

After alighting from the wheel, we will be going to Marina Bay where Singapore 50th Anniversary celebration was held last year. After touring the many attractions in Marina Bay, we will be going to one of the restaurants at Clarke Quay to try out the local delights there. You might want to try the Singaporean's favourite chilli crab or the gobsmacking delicious oyster omelette or satay dipped in delicious peanut sauce.

I hope you come soon, a lot of exciting places and food awaits you. If you have any inquiries, please contact me.

Best wishes,

Dear Russel,
How are you? I am doing fine. I am writing to you as I want to inform you of the travel plans I have thought of for you and your parents' visit. Since you like cultural and modern places, I have picked out two cultural and two modern places for you!

The first cultural place we can go on the second day is Chinatown. Chinatown has a lot of traditional shops and arts all around. You can get to see the different lives in the past and try some delicacies. You might also consider taking a trishaw ride around the vicinity. I chose to go on the second day as you might feel tired on the first day. On the third day, we can go to Little India, the second cultural place I have chosen. Just by walking around, I am sure you can get a feeling and understand more about Singapore! Little India has a wide variety of shops and houses. You can get to try spices and other food and beverages. It is also a good place to buy some souvenirs.

On Day 4, we can go to look at the first modern attraction, the Singapore Flyer, one of Singapore's most famous landmark! You and your family can enjoy a fantastic time on the world's biggest observatory wheel while taking in the panoramic view that lets you see other famous landmarks, such as Marina Bay, Merlion Park, and Empress Place. You can even try the Real Flight Simulator! Afterwards, you can have lunch at some of the restaurants nearby. Since we would most likely still have time to visit somewhere else, we can go to the second modern location, which is Marina Bay. You can get to shop around to buy the latest clothes or watch a movie! I am sure you and your parents would love to stay there, either just relaxing or admiring the scenery.

When you visit Singapore, something you definitely must try is the local dishes. I can take you to some stores that sell dishes like Laksa, Rojak and Nasi Lemak.

That is my holiday plan; I hope you like it and enjoy your stay! Be sure to visit regularly!

Yours sincerely
Kevin Tan
