If it’s going to be your first visit to Singapore, some proper planning is in order; here are some things to keep in mind to help you enjoy a truly memorable holiday.
Where to Stay
When choosing accommodation, consider the area to stay at. Each locale has something different to experience so do some research. Ideal areas to be based at include Orchard Road, Marina Bay and Kampong Gelam near PARKROYAL Serviced Suites Singapore. Also popular are places close to Chinatown and the Singapore River.
Plan an Itinerary
Plan an itinerary keeping in mind the distances between attractions and the hotels or serviced apartments Singapore has to offer. This way, you can cut down on transport time and costs. Be it shopping on Orchard Road, family adventures at Sentosa, exploring Gardens by the Bay or partying at Clarke Quay there’s much to enjoy!
The MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) offers a quick and easy way to get about and for frequent travel, consider getting a Singapore Tourist Pass. You can use buses too which provide convenient connections through an extensive network. Taxis are also on hand be they hailed on the street or by way of ride-hailing apps like Grab.
Temperatures are consistent all year-round and are normally between 24°C and 32°C though humidity levels can be on the high side. Packing light cotton or linen clothing is thus a good idea. That said, you can get the sudden usually short downpour, so having an umbrella or light raincoat will come in handy!
