Additional Tips

Taking the MRT. If you’re taking the MRT a lot, get an EZ link card. This will enable you to breeze with the station entrances when taking the train. The train system is quite expansive so you may want to take advantage of it. It can be a bit tiring, though, particularly at interchange connections, when you’re walking from one line to another.

Exchanging Currencies. The Mustafa center at bit India has one of the very best rates I have seen around Singapore. You may want to modification money here. however if your budget plan isn’t that huge (say USD 500), I don’t believe the difference between right here as well as the ones at the flight terminal matters. You may lose whatever you believe you might save in transportation just to get to a great money changer.

GST Refund. Tourists in Singapore can really insurance claim refund on GST (Goods as well as services Tax) paid for products bought from establishments that are participating in the vacationer Refund Scheme. a lot more info here.

No chewing gums, please.
