SINGAPORE – LION CITY!

Singapore – The Lion City is a city-state in South East Asia. Singapore consists of 63 islands. Due to its tropical weather and multi culture, Singapore is one of the famous travel destinations in South East Asia.


Flight Tickets

Singapore was never on one of the countries I wanted to visit in my recent times. This year as part of my yearly travel to India, I booked my flight tickets with Scoot airlines and my transit was Singapore.

  • Cost from Sydney to Singapore return = AUD 1312

I decided to make use of my transit and see Singapore. I booked 4 days in Singapore and honestly, like my other friends, I thought that it was too much time to spend in Singapore.


Stay

I booked my accommodation in one of the hostels – Quarters Hostel. The hostel was clean and very conveniently placed with respect to the location. It is on the Circular Road that has plenty of eat out options and is closer to Chinatown. The staff of the hostel are very friendly.

  • Cost for 4 nights in a Standard 4 Female dorm = SGD 126.56

Sightseeing tours

I booked most of my day tours either through viator website or at the Chinatown visitor center.
