Thanks for the link....

Can anyone recomend accomadation?

I am there for 2 nights so want to book before I leave the UK... no more than 20 GBP per night (is this a reasonable budget?)

Recently, I did a search on accommodation in Singapore on the Uniquely Singapore tourism website, which has contact details of loads of places to stay there.

Some places that seemed interesting: Hangout, The New 7th Storey Hotel, Fragrance Hotel and Hotel 81.

Hotels located in Chinatown seemed the cheapest.

Have a good trip,
Ahila.

Since most have suggested accommodation, I'll touch on other areas.

Places to visit and eat;
- China town
- Little India (Serangoon Road)
- Sentosa Island and make sure you don't miss the musical fountain
- Arab Street, very nice mosque in that area
- Night Safara
- Zouk (Disco/pub)
- Orchard Road (shopping belt)
- Lau Pa Sa (Old Market), try out the open-air road side satay (barbeque meat on stick)
- Geylang road for variety range of food: frog porride, bak ku tey (herbal pork rib soup), dried beef noodle, chilli stingray on banana leaf.
- East coast beach: day activities like cycling, strolling, swimming. Jumbo seafood restaurant to try their chilli crab (No.1 in Singapore)
- Boat Quay and Clark Quay for a drinks and live music

Guess is more than enough to cover for 2 days. Enjoy!

Singapore Zoo - great Zoo keep you busy for a day or do the Night Safari a noctural look at the animals!

Sentosa Island - grab a cable car across for som kitsch fun - the magic dancing fountain is funny and if you dont mind the big tankers passing you by you can chill out on the "beach"

the botanic gardens are lovely and make a nice change from the city:

go to the bar at the top of the Swissotel for a great view of Singapore:

I stayed in Furama Hotel. It's a 3 star hotel. The room I had was not as spacious as I thought it would be. Also, the staff are not as friendly. Some are bordering on being snobbish and the television doesn't seem to have a lot of channels. However, it is very close to the train station and is just a short walk from the Quay.

The only attraction I truly enjoyed in Singapore was the G-Max Reverse Bungy Jumping. It's open until 1am during weeknights and I believe 3am on weekends. The other attractions are not that nice. There's also a night safari and an aquarium. Though there's nothing out of the ordinary to experience. For me, there's nothing much to do around Singapore. Most of the tourist spots are man-made. I guess you could always stay in bars and drown the night away.
