Dell, IBM, Intel, and Sony all have a presence in Singapore, and there is a growing entrepreneurial community as well.
How to get around: No matter where you're going, the answer is SMRT (Singapore Mass Rapid Transport). Its subway and buses are very efficient, and it also runs cheap cabs.
Where to find free Wi-Fi: Everywhere. All public spaces are covered by a wireless network.
Where to get a trim: If you're desperate, get a $6 haircut at any EC House. The same company recently launched a slightly higher-end chain ($13 cuts) called Modésle (Citylink Mall at 1 Raffles Link, and Terminal 2 at Changi Airport).
Best place to get down to business: The chic Balaclava bar (1 Raffles Blvd., Suntec City Convention Center; 65-339-1600) has armchairs, lamps, and screen divides.
Best place to celebrate closing the deal: You can't go wrong at award-winning Jumbo Seafood (Blk. 1206 E. Coast Parkway 01-07/08; 65-6442-3435), but for local flavor, try the bamboo clams with minced garlic.
What you might not know: When you receive a business card, read it. Don't write on it, put it in your back pocket, or haphazardly stash it in a folder; that's considered rude.
