Singapore Things to Do

  • Sentosa Island, Singapore

    Sentosa Island

    4 out of 5 stars

    Enough activities here to fill up your trip plans. If you really want to experience all that this island has to offer, you may have to scrape away some of your main island plans, cos this Sentosa island offers a lot to do. But for the bare minimum, please visit Universal Studios. Queue for all the rides (including the rollercoaster). Dine at one...

    Songs of the Sea - Sentosa Island -...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    It is not "the end of the world", this show combining music, water jets and laser lights, but after a day strolling in the island to visit its several attractions, it is a relaxing end of the day, sitting for half an hour and watching this free event, before returning to mainland.

    Universal Studios

  • Clarke Quay, Singapore

    Clarke Quay

    4 out of 5 stars

    Had a great meal there a couple weeks ago with my wife. We had a ton of seafood for less than $100. The trick is to order several small dishes and share them. We ordered four and were stuffed...we wanted to try the crab and lobster, but decided to sample everything we could instead. Let me just say: this place did not disappoint. We had scallops,...

  • Newton Hawker Centre, Singapore

    Newton Hawker Centre

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    If you don't already know, the tastiest Singapore food and dishes are found in hawker centres in the residential areas. And Newton Hawker Centre is one of the many except that it is very well known but the food is more expensive than hawker centres visited by locals. There is also another problem. Hawker centres are not air conditioned and you...

  • Orchard Road, Singapore

    Orchard Road

    Singapore's Hard Rock Café is located close to the Orchard Road, in vincinity of other pubs, restaurants and bars. There's little to say about it: Live music, guitars on the wall, extroverted staff, the obligatory gif shop and prices above average. Safe place to have a nice evening with some good meals and drink – but surely the wrong place if you...

Singapore Transportation

    Buses to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    Cheekily, but I hope helpfully, I'll put this in both KL and Singapore. While you can fly or drive between the two cities, a lower cost, less tiring option might be a long haul bus. There are budget choices or there are luxury choices - I confess I've always taken a luxury bus as it doesn't cost much more and it looks a lot more comfortable. I use...

  • MRT, Singapore

    MRT

    The MRT makes travelling around Singapore very easy, convenient, cheap and efficient. We bought a 3 day tourist pass for $20 each plus a $10 refundable deposit. There are also other options. If you miss a train, then there is not long to wait for the next train. The trains can get crowded, so it is a good thing and a necessary thing that they are...

  • Taxis, Singapore

    Taxis

    Taxis are surprisingly cheap in Singapore - they cost less than in similar cities elsewhere in the world. A word of warning, though: Don't bother with taxi ranks. They can literally take hours. There's some weirdness with the rates, which make picking up passengers from a taxi rank the last resort for any driver. They'd rather take a call and pick...

    I really don’t know why some people are saying these bad things or, I’m a really lucky guy or something, because I went to Sim Lim Square and nothing bad occurs to me.

    Singlish, quite literally, means Singapore English-- a unique blend of the languages and dialects of the diverse ethnic groups residing here. Most Singaporeans are actually capable of speaking proper English, but do not do so on a daily basis out of habbit. We do try to leave out the singlish punctuations when speaking to tourists, also known as...

    Sim Lim Square - Electronic Goods

    The guys initially play fair and friendly but their interest is to sell you overpriced stuff. They give false information and refuse later to refund or exchange.

    when going to hot and humid Singapore. It is best to bring extra light colored t-shirts and athletic of jogging shorts rather than dark colored shirts or jeans as the dark colored shirts tend to absorb more heat rather than reflect the heat of the sun.

    Changi village is a somewhat laidback place where one can escape from the virtual concrete jungle that is singapore, for a taste of what it perhaps once was when it was less developed. Don't worry, even if you are not interested in seeing a less built up side of the island, it is wonderful to simply take a walk through the village and the beaches...
