From using the MRT, getting a local sim card, and eating in hawker centres, you can make your trip so much more worthwhile. Following the tips we give you will allow you to savor the beauty and richness of Singapore’s culture without breaking the bank.

Shop smart.

As tempting as Orchard Road looks, there are numerous stores scattered across Singapore which may offer you lower prices. Of course, there is nothing wrong with splurging occasionally, but there are also ways to save money even when shopping. For example, take advantage of the Great Singapore Sale that usually happens beginning in the middle of the year that lasts for a month. For tourists, establishments offer a tax-refund of up to 3% on goods and services. How cool is that?

Get The Singapore Tourist Pass

Avoid frequently queuing in line and get the Singapore Tourist Pass instead. You can get this immediately after arriving in the Changi Airport at YourSingapore’s Booth. Not only will this will save you a couple of minutes each time you will be use public transport, but you also get to have some of your money back when you return the card before you leave the country!

Avail The Tourist Data Sim

Stay connected abroad without spending too much on roaming! The prepaid tourist data sim card is perfect for short vacations. For about SG$15 a card, you can get 100GB of data for internet access, 500 minutes for local calls, 100 local SMS, and a 20 minute allowance for international calls.

Eat At Hawkers

Hawker centers are the best place to satisfy your Singaporean food cravings. Skip the fancy restaurants and go to hawker centres, small foodcourts or small restaurants instead. These are where the majority of local Singaporeans frequent for meals. While definitely not as posh or refined as fancy restaurants, these places will surely offer great value for your money.
