0 °C

We spent 5 days in Singapore staying in a hostel 2 nights in a dorm, and 3 nights in a private room – all the time with shared bathroom.

We ate out the whole time, look out for food stalls on the basement floor of shopping malls for good and cheap food.
The “Transport” part below includes 1 local flight from Bali to Singapore, train tickets around town, and a bus ticket to Melaka, Malaysia.

The “Extras” part includes a hefty tax on cigarettes on arrival. Don’t buy duty free cigarettes (even if bought in another country!) If you do, spread them about in your bag and hope they won’t spot them in the bag scan), and our expensive (but so worth it) Singapore Sling!

All amounts are in US dollars

Accommodation:....................................$ 185
Food:.....................................................$ 145
Transport:..............................................$ 305
Extras:...................................................$ 265
TOTAL:...................................................$ 900

Per day for 2 pax:...................................$ 180
