I would like to ask for advice regarding how to go to these places in one day that is most time-saving and convenient.
Starting point @ Novena MRT. This is where our hotel shuttle bus would drop us off. Leave the hotel very early in the morning. We are 5 in our group.
A) Early morning til 1:00 PM - Botanical Gardens/Orchid Garden
B) 1:00 - til late in the evening. For (B), not necessarily in this order:
Orchard Road (ION, Orchard Central, Takashimaya, etc.) / St Joseph's Church / Merlion / Clark Quay / National Museum of Singapore/Singapore Museum of Art / One Fullerton / Little India / Kampong Glam / Marina Bay Sands/Gardens by the Bay / other nearby attractions that I missed in the list..
Is the hop-on-hop-off bus a suitable option for transportation? Any info with regards the route, starting point, designated bus stop, time interval in waiting for the next bus,etc..? Also, I've read somewhere that some buses don't stop when the passengers ask them to that they miss the attractions. Or that it takes time to get on the next bus because sometimes its already full.
Is using the MRT and public bus more convenient? How about using a Singapore Tourist Pass ? Is this the same as EZ Link?
Thanks in advance for any help. :)
