HOW TO GET AROUND

- Taxi - If you prefer the road but not driving, taxis are your best bet. But note that it’s not always easy to hail one, especially during peak night hours or the shift change between 4-5pm. On the plus side, it’s all metered.
- Bus - Use the EZ-Link Card on the extensive bus system of Singapore which can take you to almost every part of the island. Oh, and they’re all air conditioned so you never have to worry about that tropical heat.
- Car - Opt for smaller car rental services as they are cheaper. Then, you have the convenience of moving around Singapore as you please, along the well-planned road network. Oh and guess what, they drive on the left side of the road too! Just remember to carry your license.
