Singapore – Transportation

Singapore has an excellent public transport system that makes travelling comfortable. English is spoken everywhere and the signs are also written in English. The best way to travel in Singapore is by Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). This network stretches throughout the city. The metro system is extensive, clean and pretty cheap. Although Singapore is a big city, if you want to go through the different districts to absorb the local atmosphere and explore the city, we recommend going on feet. Maps are available at each station, so you will not get lost. Buses also run throughout the country and may take you wherever you need to go. We do not recommend renting a car, because parking is very expensive here. Instead, order a taxi with average prices ranging from $ 3 to $ 5. Most drivers speak English, which makes communication much easier. 

Singapore – Food and drinks

Singapore is a paradise for food lovers. It might be a big adventure. Eating in Singapore offers a lot of delicacies and guarantees a wide selection of different flavours of all kind of countries. Liao Fan Hawker Chan is known for being the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world for Soya Sauce Chicken Rice recipe. Chilli crab is Singapore’s national dish, which is an iconic seafood dish. It can be prepared in two styles, either with spicy tomato chilli sauce or with black pepper sauce. Murtabak is very recommended and famous Singaporean dish. It’s a stuffed pancake stuffed with either chicken, beef and mutton. As a dessert, we recommend Ice Kacang, a crushed ice treat that you can find in almost every grocery store. As for drink, Singapore Sling, a cocktail made from gin, brandy, pineapple juice, syrup and other special drinks, is a must during your night out!
