Quoting Urvi84

Hi,
We're doing a tour going from Bangkok to Singapore on the 8th June, we end in Singapore and plan to spend a couple of extra days there. Is three days enough? We're also looking to book a hotel, could anyone offer any advice on where to stay in singapore or where they've stayed beforehand? We don't want to spend too much but at the same time because it's near the end of our trip we'd prefer something decent.
Can't wait to go now! :)
Thanks!
Urvi

3 days will be plenty to see the main sites in Singapore, we stayed at the Swissotel at Clarke Quay which was a great location beside the MRT line which we got direct from airport to hotel, and next to Clarke Quay which is great for food and drink bt compared to rest of Asia it is expensive. The Great Singapore Sale is brill - great for handbags!!

In Singapore, go eat at the food courts in shopping malls & if you're adventurous, the outdoor street food is cheap & good.

no offence, Ingrid..but as a local I would completely disagree with eating at food courts! It's usually exorbitant for the quality of food served, though you may be partly paying for the air-con and convenience.

The best foods are found all over the island at hawker centres and coffee shops, like Geylang and Old Airport Road. Too many to list here. If you can, get a local foodie to bring you around.

I agree with Sapphyre on this. The best foods are usually located in places which sees little tourists, but given the short periods of stay most visitor have for Singapore, I think food courts are a convenient stop for most visitors to experience local food.

I once brought a friend from Japan to a Bugis street corner for some durians (the tropical fruit with a shell of spikes and a pungent smell). He has never had a durian, much less in a street corner fruit stall, but it was according to him a good experience (or perhaps he's just too nice to say anything bad). Another friend of mine, from the USA, wouldn't go within 50 metres of a durian, and thought that fruits must never have a creamy flesh!

Whenever my overseas friends dropped over in Singapore, it's either my house or Lloyd's Inn http://www.lloydinn.com I thought the price is reasonable considering the fact that it is located within mins walk from Orchard Road (just behind Orchard Road to be exact). Just S$70 nett per room per night. There's a double bed so can fit 2 in a room which comes up to $35 per person.

Located near the MRT station so shouldn't be a problem getting around. You might want to try it out on your next trip

Hi,

When making your hotel reservations online, it's always best to do it directly with the hotel's official website so you can get in touch with them straight if you have any problems. Here's a list of the official websites of some of the more popular, decent -snip-
