You'll need to apply for a visa from your local singaporean embassy or high commission, same as you would for anywhere else. Details are on or

(There is a second approach that allows you to apply online, but that requires you to have a local contact who is a singaporean citizen or permanent resident who will help you apply, so I'm assuming doesn't apply to you).

There are no real issues you need to be careful about in Singapore (it's incredibly safe, and very clean, although expensive). Penalties for breaking the law can be severe, especially around drugs, so don't risk it.

Posted from within Vietnam.

Singapore dollars are called Singapore dollars. (SGD). You should distinguish clearly to avoid confusion with US dollars.Rate 1SGD (Sing Sing) = 17,200VND. (Exchange rate varies from time to time)
When buying goods at supermarkets, you should compare prices and supermarkets selling prices vary quite a lot. When buying, please choose carefully and bargain. You can bring in US dollars (new 1995 series back) for backup.
When coming to Singapore you should watch the trees at the Gardens by the Bay. One of the most impressive green destinations in Singapore and the rest of the world, free of charge, is MacRitchie Reservoir. This is a great destination for those who enjoy having fun and working outdoors.
