Downtown Singapore

Where to stay: Downtown Singapore

If you're coming to Singapore for the first time, be sure to read our introductory pieces to get the lay of the land. Backpackers may want to make a beeline straight for Chinatown or Little India, both of which are brimming with cheap hostels and guesthouses. Bugis and Kampong Glam also has some good cheap lodgings. If you're keen on bars and Singapore's nightlife, and have a touch more to spend, the Quays is a good area to find a bed. Shoppers and museum lovers might be best served by staying in Central Singapore (around the Raffles and Orchard Road areas). Between the city centre and airport, east Singapore is home to a growing number of hostels and hostels that stretch all the way out to around Changi airport.
