Got Tips For A Singapore Trip?

Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:11 am

Me and a couple of my buddies with flight benefits are seriously considering a trip to Singapore. Our parents work for UA so the flight is covered. We are planning IAH-SFO-HKG-SIN, hopefully Global First on the SFO-HKG leg. We are looking at hostels, since they are incredibly cheap (S$65~ per person for 3 nights!, 1.6 miles from downtown!). I have some questions however:

1. What are good tourist places? Beaches? Nightlife?

2. I know Singapore is very safe, but how about little things, like pick-pockets? Also, what is really teh penalty for spiting on the ground?

3. What are the odds of us getting Global First on SFO-HKG and HKG-SFO as nonrev? On the third-to-last week of August?

4. How expensive is it? I know the Singapore dollar is lower than the USD and it is a $20 cab ride from SIN to the hostel.

5. How much do you think we can actually do in 3 or 4 days?

6. How bad is the Customs and Immigration process in SFO?

Throw in any advice you may have and stories, and let me know if I left out anything to ask. Many many thanks in advance for the input!

2. Oh, that myth. Consecutive life term per spit .

Two warnings you should take very serious though.
- Don't do drugs
- Don't buy electronics at tourist traps, like Sim Lim. Go for places like Challenger or other reputable stores. As a foreigner you will fall into the Sim Lim trap. Even we sometimes do.
- The rest you heard is all myth.

3. Unless you're planning to buy a car or invest in real-estate you'll find this place a good deal, especially food and entrance fees of POIs. You'll never spent S$7/person for a meal if you really want. A cab used to be cheap here. Still far below EU/JP/US but but no longer 'bus price'. Trip from city to airport is S$15-25 depending on direction. The subway (MRT) stops at the airport which is S$2 for a one way ride. You can get almost anywhere by train these days.

4. 4 days is just nice IMHO.

6. Very few places in the world where immigration is as efficient. Locals and residents clear immigration on their own via finger printing. Time to clear for tourists is comparable to smaller EU airports like VIE, BRU, DUS

Caning...and make sure to bring a lot of illegal drugs.

and it is a $20 cab ride from SIN to the hostel.

If your hostel is close to an MRT station, take the train.

For nightlife go to the Geylang District. Shopping for high end designer items go to Orchard Rd.

Singapore is known for its food. Go to a hawker center and look for chicken rice and chili crab.

The hostel is close to the Lavender station. I saw online that it takes about an hour from SIN to there. I also saw that a cab is S$20, with 3 or 4 people, that is not a bad price for a 20 minute ride.

Are you sure? It's like the seventh stop from Changi and the MRT stations aren't very far apart. Although the cab ride for $20 is a bargain and you don't have to tip.

I got a hotel room for $41 at Hotel 81 in Geylung. That's a proper hotel and not a hostel that you have to share with strangers.


I was just in Singapore last month. Although most of the report is on Singapore Airlines, I do talk a little bit about what Singapore has to offer.

There are no day passes. We use rechargeable cards or 'top-up' as it is called here. You buy, charge and reclaim the balance in local currency at the machines available in every MRT station.

There is this however: http://www.thesingaporetouristpass.com.sg/

There are Hotel 81 all over Singapore if Geylang is not your thing. You may try Booking.com. This website often gives you very good deals in nice hotels.

OK I used to love in Singapore and still spend a lot of time there

Highlights:

Food:

Singapore has great food across a variety of different cuisines, however if I was to pick out a couple of absolute musts:

Samy's curry house on Dempsey Hill, for Fish Head curry, (not as daunting as it sounds)
Red House Seafood Centre at East Coast for Black Pepper Crab, (better than Chilli grab in my opinion)
Try a traditional Singapore hawker centre for street food

All of these are not fancy dining, but a great experience

Night Life:

There are better places in the world for nightlife, and drinking is very expensive. Try Clark Quay, Boat Quay

Attractions:

The zoo and bird park are great, but for something a little more rustic, climb up Bukit Timah or walk around Macritchie reservoir. A chance to see snakes, monitor lozards, and monkeys all living wild in a jungle habitat, just 20 mins from the city centre. Also Resorts World, Sentosa is good if you like a theme park kind of atmosphere

Shopping:

Singapore used to be great but there are better places now. Holland Village and Orchard Road probably the best spots for shopping

Hope this helps

That is true. My cheap boss picked the Geylang location.
I don't mind the red light district but what I find so icky about Singapore's red light district is the large groups of men just standing around loitering like zombies. Either go inside for some fun or go home.

Quoting kiwiinoz (Reply 9):

That is very true. TWA772LR should be reminded that Singapore is a business hub and that's it. It's not as 'exotic' as people think. Singaporeans go to nearby countries to have fun in the sun and enjoy nightlife and go shopping.
Singapore is a place to work, make a decent salary and do business.

True but Singapore can still be a lot of fun if you hunt down Ryanair!!! for a night out.

Quoting TWA772LR (Thread starter):

Good tourist places? hmm, Chinatown, Little India (visit the temples) Orchard Road (malls, malls, and more malls) the colonial district, Raffles Hotel, and downtown are nice, everywhere in SG is nice, I also recommend the Jurong Bird Park, and the Night Safari! (you can get combined tickets for both quite cheap)

Gardens by the Bay sounds interesting, skip the Singapore Flyer and go up the Marina Bay Sands Skypark, much better views.

Beaches, I heard Sentosa is the place for that.

Shopping: Orchard Road, and Mustafa Centre in Little india, open 24hrs and they have absolutely EVERYTHING at reasonable prices, and just going there is an attraction itself lol.

Night life, Clarke Quay.

2. I know Singapore is very safe, but how about little things, like pick-pockets? Also, what is really teh penalty for spiting on the ground?

No problems at all in Singapore, just keep your wits about as in any other city, but you will have no problems whatsoever, it is very very safe.

Why would you want to spit on the ground? that´s disgusting.

4. How expensive is it? I know the Singapore dollar is lower than the USD and it is a $20 cab ride from SIN to the hostel.

Not overly expensive, you can buy an EZ-Link card for the MRT and buses, you can top it up with money (20SGD for 4 days should be more than enough) and you can also use it to pay in some shops.

For food, try the hawker centres, you can have a very good meal for less than 10SGD (Maxwell Rd Hawker Centre, Lau Pa Sat, Tekka Centre) and you MUST try the local breakfast of Kaya toast, good place is Ya Kun Kaya (they have an outlet at nearly every mall) or Toast Box, or Killinney Kopitiam near Orchard Road.

Booze is very expensive tho, so if you want to hit the bars make sure to do so on Happy Hours.

I think a daily budget of 100SGD should be more than enough.

5. How much do you think we can actually do in 3 or 4 days?

Singapore is very compact and getting around is easy, it all depends on what you want to visit but you can visit many places in the 3-4 days, if you definitely hit Sentosa Island, you will need a full day.

Do some research and plan accordingly.

I´ll be there August 13th, can´t wait!!!

Oh I think we forgot to mention one very important thing about Singapore.

IT IS HOT HOT HOT! upper 80´s Fahrenheit and 80 to 90% humidity, so if you walk out your hotel and cover 1 block, you will be a sweaty mess, so bring fresh light clothes and adequate shoes.

It rains ocassionally, usually a massive thunderstorm that lasts about 10/15 minutes and then it´s like nothing happenned (at least when I´ve been there)

Public transport is fully ariconditioned as are all buildings, you can even move from one mall to another without stepping foot on the street because of underground airconditioned passageways.

If you decide to go to hawker centres for food, don´t be put off by the appeareance, they are fully clean and hygienic because the gov keeps an eye on them.

  have a good time!

   That's THE most important thing to know. High humidity and high radiance because of the equatorial sun.

Thoughts and Impressions:

Have a Singapore Sling at Sunday Brunch at Raffles.
Nice place for walk in the evening is along the river front; nice restaurants etc.
Take the bridge and visit Sentosa Island for a nice view of the port and city.
Chicken Rice at any food court and Chili/Pepper Crab by the 'beach'.
You will end up on Orchard Street anyway - main drag for shopping malls.

Be careful about petty theft, as you would in any Asian city.

Singapore is a friendly place, cops especially. There's been a flood of mainland Chinese recently for 'menial' jobs who may not speak English.

For public transport, another option is the Tourist pass, which is SGD20 (plus SGD10 refundable deposit) for 3 days. It covers trains and standard buses.

These are probably the worst places to go out in Singapore. OK, maybe not worst, but I am assuming the OP doesn't want to be hanging out with other tourists who after three beers go home with a ladyboy.

You want a good nightlife? See below (and do a google search for location).

Cocktail bars
- Jigger & Pony
- Cufflink Club
- 28 Hongkong Street (You need a booking - And good luck actually finding the place)
- The Auld Alliance (Try some of their variety of very old Yamazaki varieties)
- The Mad Men Attic Bar
- 83 (Their LIITs are very nice. If you tip - not required - you may get a freebie)

Rooftop bars
- Loof
- 1-Altitude
- Level33 (World's tallest / highest microbrewery)
- Screening Room

Clubs (Admittedly I don't go clubbing that much anymore)
- Mink
- Pangaea
- Zouk

Food - Local / Regional
- Han Kee fish soup (Amoy Food Centre - Best fish soup in town in my opinion)
- Blue Ginger (Very nice Peranakan - That is Malaysian Chinese -- food)
- Rendevouz (The one at Central - Best Nasi Padang in Southeast Asia, even better than in Padang - A city in Indonesia - Former Indonesian president Megawati has been to this place)
- 108 Depot Road Laksa - Best claypot Laksa (Everyone has their own opinion though)
- Hong Lim Complex Bah Kut Teh (One of the two best in town)
- Chinchin (On Purvis St. Good chicken rice and other regional treats)

Food - Non-local - Tired of local food? I've got you covered.
- The French Stall (French food served hawker style)
- Kinki - Foie Gras sushi anyone? (Excellent Japanese fusion)
- Lucha Loco (Best tacos in town, good to line up the stomach before a night of heavy drinking)
- Open Door Policy
- La Maison Fatien

Coffee & Brunch - For the morning after and to cure that b*tch of a hangover
- Tiong Bahru Bakery - The best croissants this side of the Ural mountains
- PS Cafe - Either Dempsey or Ann Siang Hill
- Boomarang - And get a bit of Aussie culture thrown in

Damn, I miss Singapore... Only 10 more days in Jakarta and I'll be back!   

Let me know when you are going. I'd be more than happy to show you around, though unfortunately I am in and out the entire August (Jakarta, then the Andaman sea, then Israel...).

I am torn on this one. On the one hand, yes the Singapore Sling was invented at the Raffles Hotel. On the other hand, because ALL the tourists go there   they actually buy it pre-made from an outside supplier.

I'm not sure if you can do this without booking a room, but the pool at the Fullerton is very nice and the Singapore Slings there are made fresh and with fresh pineapple juice (and you can feel the bits and fiber!).

Otherwise, just see my post above on what to do that is not too touristy.

1-Altitude is much higher and the view is better.

Also, if you happen to be there on a Thursday and it's (I think) the first (or last?) Thursday of the month, the club New Asia at the top of the Swissotel opens up their helipad. The view is also really good.

My favourite tourist attraction in Singapore is the Gardens by the Bay. The Supertrees in the evening/night are like an alien world.

I personally find much of Chinatown to be very sterile, preferred the shophouses of Joo Chiat street, though Singapore is fluid enough not to when charm will be lost from an area.

We found the seafood and satay at the East Coast Lagoon hawker centre to be very good. Good to food/hawker centres and just try things. They are generally very cheap.

In addition to the cheap MRT and taxies there is an airport bus that can be good value for taking you to a hotel, but for 4 people a taxi may be cost effective and more direct.

If you are looking for mobile phone/data access you can get a tourist sim card from the UOB moneychanger at Changi.

I've got a few trip reports covering Singapore if you care to search for them.
I like artificial banana essence!

Thanks to those that offered suggestions. Like the OP I will soon be visiting SIN (10-14 Aug) so the information is most helpful.

Since the flights aren't looking so hot for my trip, our back up plans are SYD and ICN. So, same questions apply!   Thank you in advance!
