Singapore Travel Tips and Expenses!

So, Singapore backpacking stories is over.Fuhh...finally after so long. Haha.. you guys can check out all the posts at the sidebar. Ramai yang tanya how much I spent while I was in Singapore. Here are the break down of the expenses:

KTMB Train lower berth (Return): RM 92 (RM 46/per way)
Singapore Tourist Pass: SGD 16 (SGD 8/per day) + SGD 10( refundable deposit)
The Inn-Crowd Hostel: SGD 20 + SGD 6 (time extension)
National Museum of Singapore ticket: SGD 5 (Student price)
Singapore Science Centre and Snow City : SGD 16
ABC Bargain Centre shopping: SGD 17
Food and Drinks: SGD 19.70
Souvenirs and Postcards: SGD 4
Miscellaneous spending: SGD 9.80

Currency exchange the time I was there: RM 2.41 = SGD 1

Total spending: RM 92 + SGD 113.5 (RM 273.50) = RM 365.50 

Singapore Travel Tips.

1. Do take the if you are thinking of getting around easily with their MRT and buses. It cuts traveling time around the island plus everywhere is reachable by their public transport. It cost SGD 8 per day and you'll have to pay a deposit of SGD 10, it will be returned to you once you give back the card. 


2) If you are thinking of getting back home from Singapore, do buy your return ticket from Malaysia as all the tickets bought in Singapore will be in SGD. For example, return ticket from Woodlands Train Station to KL Sentral Kuala Lumpur is RM 46 but if you purchase it in Singapore, it'll be SGD 46 (that's a freaking RM110.90!). Same goes with the bus. ;)

3) There are a lot of cheap and comfortable hostel around Singapore, especially in Little India, Clark Quay, Chinatown and etc. Price starts from SGD 20 to SGD 40, anything more than that is steep! Do pick hostel near to MRT, have good reviews on HostelBookers or HostelWorld, and to save more money, the one that provides breakfast. I had a pleasant stay at The Inn-Crowd, Little India. 

4) If you are a student, do use your student card as they offer great discount for students! I paid half price for the attractions. So, remember bring your student card when traveling! 

5) Souvenirs are cheap in Chinatown, you can get postcard for SGD 0. 50, fridge magnet for SGD 2. It was expensive in Bugis Street, so be a wise buyer! ;)

6) If you intend to go up the 57th Floor of Marina Bay Sands, keep your SGD 20, just go up to the Sky Bar and pretend like you are buying drinks and snap away photos! I did that, and voila, wonderful time up there! :D

7) Halal food in Singapore? No worries, there's plenty of vegetarian restaurant in Singapore, so you'l survive! Food can range from SGD 3 and above. I heard that most of major fast foods outlet are halal in Singapore. I missed it! dang!

So, go travel to Singapore! It's a beautiful country! I'm sure if I can do it solo, you can do it too!

    One thing I love about Singapore (compare to Malaysia) is their public transportation system, kan? sangat memudahkan.

    I didnt use tourist pass, just guna their normat ezy (betul ke nama?) card, mcm our Touch n Go jugak. Senang jugak. 3 hari duk sana x sampai SGD10 pun abes.
