Singapore Travel

Singapore, located in SouthEast Asia might be one of the smallest countries in the world, but it definitely isn’t the cheapest!

So how can you travel to Singapore without breaking the bank? 

For those who haven’t been to Singapore, it can be an expensive trip with your average alcoholic drink costing between $12 – $20. But, fun fact, their duty-free alcohol is cheap! This is due to the tax they put on their alcohol. 


Here is how you can save some money in Singapore

Eat at Hawker Halls

Drink spirits, not beer

  • If you do want to drink alcohol while travelling in Singapore

Don’t shop on Orchard Road, go to the markets

Buy your attraction tickets online

Don’t break the rules

  • You might think we are joking, BUT Singapore is a VERY clean city

  • You will never see an old car on the streets and you will feel very safe

  • But this is because they have very strict rules. Some of these rules will see you with a fine if you break them

Chewing gum, eating snacks and drinking is not allowed on any public transport, that is a fine!

Electronic cigarettes and “vaping” are illegal. You are not allowed to spit or litter AND feeding pigeons in the park can see you get a S$500 fine.
