Singapore Itinerary and Expenses

Hello Lah! As previously posted, I am sharing with you the itinerary and expenses that I have incurred in Singapore.

You may think that Singapore is the most expensive country to visit in South East Asia – YES, that can be true and NO, if you know how to look for cheap options from accommodation to food.

Singapore caters to a lot of tourists from the West and the Asians. Which is why the options are very diverse. They can cater to tourists with high sense of taste, but they can also accommodate backpackers. After all, Singapore is known as SEA’s main transport hub so they have to be very flexible in terms of providing options.

As shared from my previous post, here is the itinerary which I followed during my last visit in Singapore:

Day 1: Visit to Little India, Chinatown and Clarke Quay

Day 2: Visit to Marina Bay and Raffles City

Day 3: Universal Studios Singapore and Bugis

Hotel Accommodation: Fragrance Hotel Emerald

EXPENSES:

Overall, I was able to spend at least 18,000 for the entire stay in Singapore. I was already able to stay in a comfortable hotel, ate decent meals and traveled comfortably.

Itinerary

Top tips to save on cost:

  1. Book your Universal Studios Singapore ticket via Klook! They offer tickets at discounted rates especially for first-time users!
  2. Stay only at these areas: Kallang, Geylang and Lavender. They may not be at the center of Singapore, but knowing how efficient their mass transport system is, I don’t think it’s a major concern.
  3. Eat at Hawker’s Center. These are food court-type halls so you have many great and yummy options!
  4. Always watch out for promo fares!
  5. A 3-day trip is already enough for your Singapore trip.
  6. Visit places that does not require an entrance fee. Gardens by the Bay charge you with an amount if you go inside their dome. But walking around the area is free. I guess the experience is still the same so no need to pay extra.
