Singapore is much more expensive than any other SE Asian city I have visited. I'd say it's a similar price to the average western city for food and drink. Accommodation is quite pricey too. I can't remember exactly how much stuff was, but I remember being very shocked at getting a bill in a very average bar for 3 beers and it being just under £15!!! I'd recommend grabbing a guide book and checking out the prices if you are on a tight budget.

Annemarie,
Singapore can be expensive, but you can reduce your costs with a bit of planning. The Inncrowd Hostel advertises double rooms for $48SD, less than $30USD. Dorm beds even less. Most shopping malls have food courts in them and the prices there will not break your budget. Many small street restaurants in Little India and Chinatown are very reasonable. You get free toast & tea at your hostel, snack on the go while sightseeing and that just leaves dinner. Transport is also reasonable. Using the farecard system for the MRT and buses will not stretch your budget. Many of the sights are within walking distance from your room or from one of the MRT stations.

Yes, Singers is more expensive than neighboring countries, but it will not break your budget if you plan a bit. Good luck to you guys.
