Public transport / taxis on new years day

Posted by sanpedro on 16/8/2010 at 12:59

I'm stopping over in Singapore 30 Dec 2010 and leaving on a 6am flight 1 Jan 2011. I'm planning to stay in the City e.g. Little India, and had overestimated the efficency of the MRT I assumed that trains to the airport would start running early enough to catch a 6am flight. I know that trying to get a taxi on NYE in Australia is really difficult as it is a big celebration. How busy is NYE in Singapore? I can see some mentions of an airport shuttle bus on Changi Airport site but no details abo ...

A week around Singapore

Posted by Markontheroad on 23/1/2010 at 18:38

Hi All, Doing a round the world trip and just managed to get an unexpected week in Singapore - we arrive in tomorrow! However, we are not city people and prefer countryside, mountains and beaches, so would be happy to see Singapore in a day and then head out for 5-6 days somewhere else reasonably close. Which way do we head? (Budget is limited, so we'd need to bus or train it out of the city, rather than fly). Thanks! ...

Early morning arrival - what to do?

Posted by spareword on 18/4/2010 at 13:08

Hello all - my girlfriend and I arrive at 12:45am on June 16 in Singapore, well really it's just our layover until our flight leaves for Bali at 4:45pm the same day. I've heard that Singapore is a small region and that we can do some exploring in that small time frame. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest an place to stay for that one night (which must be open for a late check-in as it could be close to 2am). Also, any suggestions on what to do with our few hours in town? Or am I just kidding ...

child friendly singapore excursions

Posted by family3 on 14/3/2010 at 01:57

We are going to be based in Singapore for 4 weeks in August and would like some advice of 3-4 day trips to go on with our two year old son. We have a limited budget and don't want to stay too far from Singapore. Hours on buses are impractical but short flights would be ideal. We would like to steer clear of anywhere too touristy and would like to see some orangutans and other animals in their natural habitat. Any other child friendly suggestions would be great! ...

Posted by looman on 14/10/2009 at 21:48

Hi. I'm flying into S'pore from London. My plan is to travel through Malaysia into Thailand, either by bus or train.
