Taxis. The word itself instils fear and loathing in many of us. Getting a cab in Singapore is a little like playing a hellish version of Whack-a-Mole, where the roles are reversed: We’re the moles and taxis are the mallets. It’s cruel punishment, and we’ve no choice but to pucker up.
But dread the taxi no more. We’ve put together a guide on how to conquer the cab, whether it’s beating the snarl of gridlock in the CBD, using the right booking apps, or picking up tips from the drivers themselves. Turn to page 14 to never have to worry about cabs in the city again.

And on a personal note, this issue marks my first as editor. Many thanks to Berwin Song for showing me the ropes – these are mighty big shoes to fill. As always, we’re here to help you make the most of your city.
