Tips for travelling to Singapore Traveling to Singapore is probably what you have in mind if you've come this far. Whether it's because of that or because you already have flights or even because it's a destination that attracts your attention, what we can already tell you is that a trip to Singapore will be one of the greatest successes of your travelling life. Although making any route through the city as the Singapore in 6 days that we made, does not need big preparations, as the city is very easy to travel, if we believe that there are certain details and observations that can make your trip much easier and more comfortable. That's why we've decided to publish this post on tips for travelling to Singapore, where we'll talk about the best time to travel, recommendations for accommodation, possible routes and places to visit, which we hope will help you with your travel arrangements. Best time to travel to Singapore If you already have decided dates to travel to Singapore, don't worry, as the city has temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees that stay at the lake all year round, making any time of the year a good time to visit Singapore. One thing that is interesting to know is that between the months of November and January, are usually the highest rainfall, although these are common in the city throughout the year and are usually heavy rains for a while, which do not represent a great impediment to enjoy the city. If we keep this in mind, something interesting and what we will talk about later, is to have a plan B for each day, with which you can continue enjoying the city in case of bad weather. This includes visits to some of the city's interesting museums or the greenhouses in Gardens by the Bay, for example. With this in mind, we could say that any season is a good time to travel to Singapore, being perhaps more appropriate to plan the trip according to the needs of each traveler, without focusing too much on what is the best time or valuing to avoid the festivities, moments in which the city is usually much more crowded. Visa to travel to Singapore If you are Spanish, it is necessary to have a passport valid for more than 6 months in order to travel to Singapore. For stays of less than 90 days, a visa is not required and no paid work can be done without a work permit. Transportation in Singapore Although many of the places you see in Singapore are very close to each other, you will probably at some point need to use the subway to get from one place to another or simply to get from the airport to Singapore. It's very intuitive, but it's also true that if you're in the city for the first time, it's worth getting to know a little bit about how it works and at least having an idea of what lines there are and where the most important attractions are located. Singapore Metro (MRT) The first thing to keep in mind is that the Singapore Metro, known as MRT, is the most comfortable option to tour the city, since with its 5 lines, covers virtually the entire city, including tourist sites. Keep in mind that in the subway there are some prohibitions such as not smoking or eating or drinking. Singapore Metro Lines NS North South Line: Marina Bay to Jurong East. EW East West Line: Changi Airport to Tuas Link. As we will discuss below, this is the best option for getting from the airport to the city centre. NE North East Line: HarbourFront to Punggol. CC Circle Line: HarbourFront to Marina Bay. DTL Blue Line (Downtown Line): From Bukit Panjang to Expo. Singapore Subway Timetable The subway runs in Singapore from 5:30 a.m. to 00:30 p.m. and is 5 minutes on average between the two. Singapore Subway fare The price of the metro in Singapore, as in other cities around the world, depends on the distance you travel or the stops you have traveled, although in general most tickets are priced between 1.5 and 2.5SGD per journey. One thing to keep in mind to save on transportation is to buy the Ez-Link Card or the Singapore Tourist Pass, which will be discussed later.
