SINGAPORE

Why Singapore?

You can easily get caught up in the amazing expat life of Singapore . The combination of a tropical climate and great infrastructure is what makes it so popular. Though coined as one of the most expensive places to live, there are ways around it. Public transport is cheap and efficient, and the delicious meals from hawker centres will only set you back a couple of dollars. The city is also considered the 8th safest place in the world.

Highlights

"I spent a majority of my childhood in Singapore and I would go back in a heartbeat. I love that there are so many things to do but each activity is so varied - relax on the beach one day and shopping in a mega-mall the next."

Gardens By The Bay

Probably one of the most iconic additions to Singapore's skyline. Explore around Supertree Grove, Cloud Forest and you can't forget the giant indoor waterfall. We'd recommend seeing the gardens when you're not in a rush, as it can get quite busy and people move about slowly. 

Eat your way around

Many people say that their top priority in Singapore is eating all the amazing food. There's countless Hawker Centres which serve delicious dishes for just a few dollars. You won't get this food quality for so cheap anywhere else in the world! (P.S. Try the Chicken Rice at Tian Tian)

Night Safari

Singapore Zoo is one of the best zoos in the world, and the Night Safari is testament to this. Start with a 40 minute guided tour on a buggy to see all the nocturnal animals you wouldn't in the daytime. And, on the weekends there's live tiger feedings!

Sentosa Beach

Sentosa is a man-made resort off the coast. Not only is there a great beach but it's home to many attractions like Universal Studios, shopping malls, a panoramic view from the Tiger Sky Tower, and if you just fancy a game of golf. You can get there by road, cable car, a boardwalk and the monorail.

Transport

  • Public Transport
  • Taxis

Singapore has a large transport network. The main system is the subway: MRT. You can buy an EZ-Link card, similar to an Oyster card, which you top up. Fares are based on the distance you travel and usually range from SG$1 to SG$2.50. You can also take the bus, however it can be confusing to know which one to take and there's a lot of traffic.

There is no Uber in Singapore but they have a local equivalent: Grab. However, taxis are in abundance and easy to flag down. They're also  reasonably priced, just make sure they have a meter. Most drivers will speak English, so be sure to chat with them for local tips. If you want to sound like a true local and be polite, address your drivers as Uncle (m) or Auntie (f).
