Hi! I intend to spend my birthday weekend in Singapore this June (3rd week)2016 for 2 nights Saturday and Sunday in a hostel in Bugis (I will be back to my home country on a Monday morning). It would be my first time to visit this country. I would welcome any tips on how to maximize fully my Saturday and Sunday. 1. Regarding transferring from one spot to the other, which is better: getting Singapore EZ card or take the hop on hop off bus? 2. Which tourist spots to visit for 2 days (aside from Universal Studios & Animal Zoos)? Do I need to book online in advance so I can save some bucks? 3. For the food, I will definitely try the hawker stalls. Are there any restos or maybe a nice special dining place to celebrate my birthday around Bugis St (like a birthday place for tourists haha) ? 4. Is it easy to maneuver in Singapore? Can I still locate the tourist spots without using online maps? (I dont think I will have mobile internet connection when I get there)
Thanks in advance for your suggestion.
My son has around the world ticket, with few stops. He plan to travel for 6 weeks , as that's much he is free from his Uni over the summer.
His ticket is :London-Singapore-Auckland-Rorotonga( Cook Islands)-LA-London..
Everywhere he arranged to stay with friends but Singapore, as is his first time in SEA , he done lots of reading on the area now we just need to find good and cheap-ish place to stay for 4 nights in the city.
We know that the city is very clean and safe, yet we would like your opinion on area where to stay.
Can you gave us some pointers please?
We keep looking on line but is bit confusing.
We would like to be central as possible, clean and no too expensive.
Any ideas greatly apriciated. Many thanx
Do I need to pre-book organized excursions or is there a hop on hop off bus. Thinking about visiting March 2017 Any suggestions as to best hotel location much appreciated. Want to see all the major tourist sites - not interested in theme parks and anything with cable cars
So .....we have a 6 year old daughter and want to visit Singapore from Perth, Australia for 4 nights in July/August.
It will be our first trip.I understand public transport is so good that location doesn't matter too much but maybe you guys can tell us if there's any area for a family to avoid?
Our aim is
....some good meals out, ( can be street food, cheap but brilliant, etc) visit the zoo, Sentosa island for fun and enjoy a nice hotel ( wifi and pool ideally )
We have a budget of about A$150 a night and I fear that may not get us much in Singapore.
I'm familiar with booking.com and trivago but would welcome recommendations of any hotel that would be a good location and meet our needs.
We'll be visiting Singapore for the first time next week (4 days), and we're currently trying to figure out three things:
- average amount we need to allot for food per meal - average amount we need to allot for transportation - efficient / convenient routes to take to cover as many places as possible in one go
For now, we are thinking of going to the following areas:
Esplanade Gardens by the Bay ArtScience Museum National Museum Supertree Grove / OCBC Skyway Little India Chinatown Tiong Bahru Orchard Road Art Trail Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (low priority) Botanic Garden (low priority)
For the food, we were hoping to try different places for every meal namely:
- fast food chain (preferably local or anything Asian) - convenience stores (preferably local or any other convenience store offering local staples) - hawker stores - cafe (preferably offering local bread / drinks) - other types of restaurants that you could suggest, if there are any
Based on the lists above, can you please suggest good places to eat near the places we will be going to?
We will be staying somewhere in Little India and we read that there are a lot of places where we can eat there, but we can't figure out which specific ones among all the options available we should head to. Deciding on the spot wouldn't be much of an issue, but we're hoping to factor in the budget as early as now (hopefully between 7-10 SGD per meal (lower if possible, but for places on the mid-range or higher end, above that is fine).
Also, how much would you suggest we allot for transportation expenses? We have been advised to pay for an EZ Link card and top it up with 35 SGD. Would it be enough to cover all or majority of the places on our list? If not, how much more do you suggest we top it up with or which place do you think we could scratch off our list or move to low priority based on logistics or value for money?
Tips and miscellaneous advice will be much appreciated.
After a backpacking holiday through Malaysia I'll depart Singapore on a Friday morning 7:15am by plane from Terminal 3 (Oman Air). I'll be staying for 3 nights only in Singapore so a Taxi for departure would mean considerable cost per day.
Is it safe to take public transport at this time of the day (most busses/tram starts around 5-something)?
The most convenient locations both for departure and logistics in general are are Chinatown and Little India, right?
