Want to learn more? Keep reading to find out.


Pack the Right Clothes

Singapore has a tropical climate. It will feel like summer throughout the year. Yet, the high humidity means you will sweat a lot while outdoors. Make sure you pack lightweight and sweat-wicking clothes.

Plan any outdoor activities for the cold morning. Go for walks throughout the city in the evening. Pack an umbrella and a lightweight raincoat. In a tropical climate, a torrential rainfall can happen at random.

Save and Budget Your Money

Singapore is a pricey city to visit. Make sure you create a daily budget on what you will spend on food and tourist attractions.

You can look up cheaper or free things to do while in Singapore, as well.

Have a Meal at a Hawker Center

You can save money and eat like a local when you head to a local hawker center. You’ll find Singapore's most authentic food. Meals at a hawker center tend to be cheaper than the meals in air-conditioned food courts.

The top hawker centers are near Marina Bay and Chinatown. Try Singaporean specialties like laksa, chili crab, and chicken rice.

Head out Early to the Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is one of Singapore’s most popular attractions. You can visit the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome open at nine in the morning. Try to go there 15 minutes early, so you are one of the first entrants.

Use Public Transport

The cheapest way to get around Singapore is by using public transit. It’s well-maintained and modern. You can get an EZ-Link card and use it on subways and buses.

Bike-sharing is another popular and cheap way to get around the city.

Keep Your Technology Charged

Before heading out for the day, make sure your camera and phone are completely charged. You’ll want to photograph or record some of the things you see while visiting Singapore.

Carry around a few power banks and a power cord. This way, you can avoid your battery draining while you’re out and about.

Rules on Smoking

Singapore has certain zones or areas for smoking throughout the city. Public places are not one of those areas. If you get caught there while smoking, you could pay a $1,000 fine.

Keep an eye out for a designated smoking area before you light your cigarette.

Try the Local Coffee

In Singapore, don’t head to the Starbucks for your latte, but try something different. The coffee is made with condensed and evaporated milk along with brewed coffee.

There are different variations to this coffee, as well. Find them at a hawker center or the local food court.
