3 Tips to Make the Most of Your Stay in Singapore

tourist spot in SingaporeIn 2016, the number of tourists visiting Singapore surged by 7.7 percent. About 16.4 million toured the country and the numbers keep on growing. When you visit Singapore, it’s easy to understand why many travellers choose this haven in Southeast Asia. If it’s your first time to visit the Garden City, here are three tips on how you can make the most of your stay.

1. Book tickets online

There are many interesting places in Singapore for both family and business trips. To make the most of your time without having to line up for tickets, book them online ahead of time. Getting your amusement park tickets online is highly advisable, especially for families with young children. This way, you can maximise your stay and wouldn’t have to worry about waking up too early just to line up for tickets.

2. Research on the best hawker spots

Singapore is a food lover’s paradise. But you won’t find the best eats in skyscraper restaurants or fancy hotels. If you ask any local, they would tell you that best places to eat are at hawker centres. There are many in the city, so it’s best to do your research ahead of time and plan your logistics, so you don’t end up wasting time looking for the best hawkers to eat at. First timers in Singapore should check out the Chinatown Complex Food Centre, Old Airport Road Food Centre, Maxwell Road Hawker Centre, and the Tiong Bahru Market Hawker Centre.

3. Learn about strict rules in Singapore

When you’re travelling to another country, it’s best to read up on some of the laws that apply once you land. For instance, the no smoking and no drinking rules in several places in Singapore are very strict, and if you’re not careful, you might end up having to pay hefty fines or worse, risk jail time just because you’re not aware you’re breaking the law.
