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! ...

Do I have to fly from Singapore to KL

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. However I've been advised that my airline may not board me in London if I don't have proof of onward travel from S'pore and this would have to be in the form of a flight rather than train or bus ticket. I really don't want to have to book an unecessary flight Any ideas ...

How to avoid Formula 1?

Posted by busylizzy on 26/8/2009 at 15:58

For the start of my 6+ month adventure, I'm flying into Singapore. While I'm there, I figure I might as well stay for a few days to have a look around and see what's changed in the last 20 years. No problems. Until a friend told me that the days I booked (24-27 Sept) are the exact same days as the Formula 1 event. Now, to me, a car is a car is a car. Except for blue ones. They're blue - and pretty. I'm not too thrilled to think that I will be spending my 2 days/3 nights in Singap ...

Singapore Shopping Festival Information

Posted by rsnfunky on 24/5/2009 at 19:12

Hi All, I have read that during the Singapore Shopping festival (June-July) everything is at 70% discount. Is it true? (As is sounds unbelievable). My questions are - 1) Are Electronics (like a DSLR) at a discount. 2) Are reputed brands also discounted (like Sony) 3) Do we get originals and new (first hand) goods. I am looking to buy a mid range Digital SLR and was going to Singapore next month. It would be great if someone could let me know what could be the expected price range for ...

Train leaves at 6am, so the shorter a distance we have to stagger at 4:30am the better! Thanks in advance! ...
