In the red light district, Geylang area there are a number of cheap hotels, I stayed in the Fragrance Ruby down Lorong 20, which is only about 5 minutes walk from Geylang MRT. I was payin 36SGD per room per night, plus you get HBO.... bonus.
I have recently brought a group of my colleagues from US,Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Thailand etc to some of the place of interest which they love.. perhaps you can KIV them..
1) Night Safari
2) Jurong Bird Park
3) Chinatown's food street (at night)
4) Orchard Road
6) Botanic Garden
Singapore is summer all year round...so remember to dress light.
Hope I have been of help..
I've been to S'pore few months back.
Was resided up at Hotel 81 Orchid, in Geylang Red Light District. Was recommended frm one of my S'pore friends.
Paid about USD20 plus per night.
It was consider a moderate one and clean to reside.
Food easily can be found and convenience to public transport.
BUT once night falls... this area has a night business to run, where most of the nights there're "ladies" standing around the entrance. Sometimes you'll find it's quite embarass to enter the hotel at the entrance hehe.
But overall, it's budget place to to have a good night sleep.
The YMCA costs S$25 a night for an air-con dorm bed and this includes free all you can eat breakfast, and it also has a free gym and free rooftop swimming pool. It's also really central and right next to one of the main BART stations.
YMCAs have a bit of a corny reputation but if you're not bothered about that then it's a good place to stay.
I stayed in Singapore last year for 5 days and we stayed at the Robertson Quay hotel... it was clean, cheap and I thought reasonably well situated. I think that you should be able to find it on the internet as that is how we booked it... I think that it was about£12 per night and it has a lovely outdoor pool and limited food if required, staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived at the airport from Australia and were recommended to go to the desk and get a group taxi which charges you a set fee and goes to different pickups so you get the chance to have a good chat with people on the way.
I really liked Singapore and thought that it was easy to find your way around... we also bought passes for the tourist buses which were a welcoming air conditioning comfort and was a great way to see your way round. I bought a camera from Sim lin market which was a really good buy, I would recommed to barter and basically the higher you go up the cheaper the items seem to be you will know what I mean if you go.
to see churches and other religious buildings:
for memorials, parliament house
for parcs and gardens in Singapore
