What To Expect When Arriving In Singapore

From there you can jump straight on the MRT (Singapore’s subway system) and head directly into the city.

Travelling Singapore

Depending on how much exploring you plan on doing in Singapore, the MRT is the easiest way to get around.

You can purchase an MRT tourist pass for 1, 2 or 3 days and the prices go up from $10 to $16 and $20.

Other options include the mobikes and electric scooters that you’ll see scattered around the city. They are not abandoned, don’t worry! You can download the app and unlock a bicycle at your own leisure.

Apart from that, you should be good to go. Just remember the no chewing gum rule in Singapore. Since 2004, only chewing gum of therapeutic value is allowed into Singapore.

Sim Cards

The best option for tourists when arriving in Singapore is Singtel’s 100GB data for $15.
