Singapore public transportation (especially metro) is very easy to use, clean and quick. Prices are reasonable and connections are efficient. Highly recommended (although taxi fares are not very high either).

We used it a bit and it was great. Not cheap and we realized that cabs were cheaper if travelling in a larger group. It is worth a try though.

Buy an Ezipass card at any convenience store. The system is amazingly efficient and easy to understand for newbies. It’s a good thing for the environment, very cheap and 100% safe.

Yes. If you do purchase the card you should hold on to it for your next trip. The remaining credit will be valid and your card can be recharged.

Yes it’s not allowed to eat or drink in the SMRT.. to keep it clean and litter free,, people who eat or drink in the SMRT might not know about the rules hence.. so better v should point them out about the same on a good way..
