When to go

Before booking your Singapore apartments or the flights for your holiday, you should first know what time of the year is the most appropriate for a tour there. From March to September, it is generally the best time to go and you can avoid the rainy season this way.

Experiences that you must try

If you are planning your first tour to be with your family, then Pan Pacific Serviced Suites on Beach Road, Singapore is the most ideal, mainly because of its convenience to all Singapore attractions. Among the must-attend experiences, watching the light show at Marina Bay Sands and visiting the China Town at night is special.

Money and savings

Singapore uses Singapore Dollars, and you may always use credit cards because it’s accepted here without any issues. If you consider some bargaining in Singapore, you may try it a little at street or night markets, but all shopping malls do have fixed prices.

Laws you should obey

It’s important that you know the laws that prevail in Singapore before you go there because a fine in this country can cause huge damage to you financially. Littering and feeding pigeons are completely prohibited here, and if you get caught doing them, yes, you can expect to get fined.
