Most Essential Travel Hacks to Know in Singapore - Travel Tips Every Visitor Should Know to Enjoy a Tour of Singapore

As one of the most popular travel hubs in Asia, Singapore is a playground for the masses. Whether you are heading to the Lion City for a business trip or a holiday getaway, these travel hacks are bound to make your time in Singapore a more seamless experience.


Travelling Around

Whether you have secured accommodation at the Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road, Singapore or any other hotel suite or executive apartment in Singapore, make sure it's close to an MRT station. As the most affordable and efficient way to get around the country, staying close to an MRT or subway station can be a great advantage to all visitors, particularly those who are short on time. Providing easy access to nearly every landmark and highlight in the city, the MRT network in Singapore is extensive and easy to pay for. You can purchase an EZ-Link card at any station and use it to pay for subway rides and even bus journeys. If you are travelling as a group and do require a taxi, download the Grab app to your Smartphone and avoid hailing cabs off the road.


Wining and Dining

There's no need to stick to sandwiches and burgers when based in a foodie's paradise such as Singapore. Eating like a local is not only the best way to wine and dine during a trip to Singapore but it is also the most affordable option available. Hawker centres are located around the city and offer visitors a taste of authentic local treats including Singapore Chilli crab and Kaya toast. Hawker centres do tend to be crowded so when you find a free seat, place a business card or a bag on the seat to reserve it. Singapore's low crime record means that you need not worry about losing a bag, umbrella, or any similar item you may use to call dibs on the seat.


Heat Wave

Singapore is a humid and tropical country, so travellers must ensure that they wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water when embarking on sightseeing tours and excursions during the day. Alternatively, one could schedule outdoor activities for the late afternoon or evening so that the midday heat is unlikely to be a factor.


Avoid the Flyer

While the Singapore Flyer is often compared to the London Eye and other observation wheels around the world, it is not worth your time. Considered a tourist trap by most travellers, there are more worthy landmarks and recreational hotspots to visit in Singapore, including the Gardens by the Bay and Clarke Quay.


Follow the Rules

Singapore is notoriously strict when it comes to drug-related offences and pollution so tourists should be mindful of local laws relating to these types of activities. Drugs are illegal and those found to be in possession of any illegal substances will likely face serious jail time. Avoid littering and polluting the environment of this excessively clean and neat Asian country which prides itself on its cleanliness.
