If you are planing a trip to Singapore, the first thing you must do is arrange your itinerary around one of Chumkie Banerji’s exhibitions. Called simply “The Fair” they feature a lavish collection of products and services bringing together a wide variety of buyers and sellers over a two-day period. They are organized every month at the Goodwood Park Hotel.
