Singapore Air Force Museum (7 Replies)
Hi, Apart from photography,I'm a lot into military aviation.Does the Singapore air force museum worth a visit? Thanks

Response fromDae89|
Well since you love military aviation, you can visit it as part of your sightseeing in Singapore, the good news is the admission is free of charge;) Do note that the fighter plane, photo they display inside is very old model. (Singapore is not America, we dont have the best war machine so...you might have seen it elsewhere on other country in their history museum...) gets very bore for me as its kinda lifeless...basically they never update anything...which is why the free admission I...More

Itinerary can be tweaked a bit to include additional spots & in a more relaxed manner. But if this is how you want it.. it is comfortably doable as well. Hotels should cost 2.5-3k for twin sharing, Transport depends on vehicle type. Within 2.5 - 4.5k is your play area.August sees a lot of tourists, so book in advance.
