Clarke Quay and Boat Quay run into each other and both are a gastronomic eating strip. The food is good, it's a bit of a hassle walking along here at night if you just want to look as the sprukers will stop you at each...More

This is a unique place on the planet. It is full of little restaurant and drink lounges overviewing the river. It is a MUST plase to visit while in Singapore.

This place is all about nightlife; it is where locals and tourists come at night to enjoy some drinks and food. It is safe, and unlike similar areas around Asia not a lot of “shady” activities are going on.

Well, you got all the answers in the tourist books already, but if you want to see the real Singapore you have to get away from tourist locations - but that of course depedns what kind of traveler you are. The key event in... More

Suggestions for 3.5 days for solo female traveller (10 Replies)
Hi everyone! I'll be in Singapore for a few days and was hoping to get some suggestions as far as what to see. I love seeing different cultures, eating, and animals. I'll be joining a fairly active tour after my time in Singapore so as much as I love hiking and such, just want to do it if there is a really great experience that comes with it. I've already gone through some recommendations on this forum but wanted to ask since I'm travelling alone and don't know if I'll enjoy the Zoo and...More

For 3.5 days and given that you will be taking taxis part of the time, paying by cash will probably be cheaper than the Tourist Pass. If you want the convenience of not bothering with coins and don't mind paying more, you can get the EzLink card which has a S$5 non-refundable card fee. The card is valid for 5 years so you can keep it for future use or cancel it to reclaim any remaining stored value at any TransitLink Office. A minimum of S$3 should be maintained on the card before starting a...More

'We'll be highly obliged if you can work out a Singapore tour itinerary for us.'... have you done enough research before planning your trip?! Singapore is a compact city/island to explore. It's more than easy to plan your own itinerary or ask your travel agent to work it for you. Your topic has been repeatedly many many times. The easiest way start from Singapore Tourism Official website, i'm sure you know Mr. Google.
Please help me find an old post (5 Replies)
Some months ago, last year, someone posted a link to a very interesting website. I did save it to my favourites at the time, but can't find it now. It showed something of underground Singapore, sewers, cables etc, and each area, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay etc. Very comprehensive. I remember thinking there was so much to look at, and technical stuff to interest my partner. Can anyone help me to find it again?

Wow! What a lot of information in these websites. Although none of these was the one I was thinking of, I will get so much good info from them. Thank you very much. We are to have a 2 day stopover in October on our way home from Australia
