Singapore’s World Class Transportation
Renowned for our World Class Transportation, virtually any place of interests is within an hour’s journey from the city centre.
To see Singapore at your own pace, there are a few hop-on and off buses, City Sightseeing, Trolley & Boat, SIA Hop-on and FunVee, to name a few. These buses offer different routes to major sights, attractions and hotels in the city.
To immerse yourself totally in the Singapore Culture, travel as the locals do, take the public buses and the mrt (subway)! Most shopping malls are linked to a station or two. Malls that are further off usually have shuttle buses running back and forth from the mrt stations.
Taxis are readily available, though different operators charge varying flag down fees, starting from S$3. All taxis run on the meter, so no bargaining is entertained. Do note that flag down at Changi Airport, Seletar Airport, Marina Bay Sands Resorts World Sentosa and Singapore Expo Centre incur an additional charge of S$2-5. Throughout the day there are various surcharges in effect (http://www.taxisingapore.com/taxi-fare).
If you do get lost, just ask the locals! They will be more than willing to help. Most of the locals speak English, or more affectionately known as Singlish!
