Inspired by the intricate details and colors of the vibrant Katong neighborhood, Baba Chews Bar & Eatery (at the Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong) is a beautiful space. And patrons will find time easily slips away as they sip on quality coffee from local roasters in a traditional but super chic environment. 

Open all day, Baba Chews is a wonderful introduction to local architecture and artistic spirit, as well as being an ambassador of Singapore’s thriving coffee scene.

Bangkok has a reputation for its exciting nightlife dating back to the mid-20th century. And if you fancy traveling back to a time synonymous with uninhibited fun, then you must check out Bangkok’78 Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok, Vignette Collection.

Channeling the golden era of Thailand’s capital in the 1970s, Bangkok’78 pays homage to the decade with a menu of local classics, including Pad Thai Goong, Tom Yum Soup, Khao Soi, and the iconic Mango Sticky Rice.

Making a reservation for an evening meal at SugarSand, part of Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach, is always a good idea. 

A mainstay of the thriving Seminyak beach restaurant scene, SugarSand offers a uniquely Balinese experience. Guests can dig into its superb collection of cocktails and local seafood while kicking back in oceanfront surroundings and soaking up the sun.

If you are traveling to Vietnam and are keen to check out the country’s traditional food culture, Citron at InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is essential.

Dining here is like participating in a whistle-stop tour of the entire country as it incorporates local recipes from North, Central, and South Vietnam. Dedicated to using the best ingredients available, Citron is particularly proud of its take on the iconic Hanoi-style pho and Vietnam’s famous comfort food, Hoi An chicken rice.

Furthermore, members of IHG’s refreshed loyalty program, IHG One Rewards, can add even more value to their dinner dates by taking advantage of the Dining Privileges program across Southeast Asia and Korea.
