SE ASIA / Singapore - couple of questions

Posted by 9preciousGems on 11/7/2013 at 04:28

Am planning on booking a flight from London to Singapore returning ~ 6 months later. I want to use Singapore as my main hub and will probably travel north through Malaysia and Thailand via train. Can anyone envisage any immigration/visa isses with having a return date 6 months in the future? (UK passport holder)

Also can anyone recommend anywhere nice to stay that has private ensuite but also has a good communal area so it's easy to meet other travellers? ie strikes a nice balance between hotel and hostel

Into Singapore? No I wouldn't expect any problems with immigration. Malaysia likewise no, though I'd plan on getting a Thai tourist visa in KL or Penang.

For digs in Singapore, I'm going to be lazy and point you to some of the posts on the Singapore wire -- if you're planning on using there as a hub you'll probably find a fair bit of interest.

Interesting digs in Singapore

Excellent thanks for the link. Will have a browse now. Apologies for the very specific digs request though - hopefully i will find something there.

I will most probably get a 60 day tourist via for Thailand before i set off from UK
