If Singapore has been on your bucket list, it is because that’s the closet Universal Studios from where you live, and you have been wanting to be cruise through the world of Jurassic Park or see Puss and Boots dance for you; the magnificent Merion is something you want to have a selfie with; the magically lit Super trees at Garden by the Bay makes you want to do nothing another lay down beneath it and soak in its wonder, or you want the thrill that only a Night Safari can give you.
All of these are more than legit reasons for you to want to visit this high end, futuristic city. But you will get way more than you asked for when you get there; Singapore is a safe town, with an extremely reliable and convenient system of public transport.
Singapore’s advanced infrastructural built can be witnessed not only by its supreme skyscrapers, but also, it’s robust, well planned and integrated system of public transport. No matter where you’re from, you will find your way around the city as quickly and safely as possible.
Singapore has a reliable bus, taxi and subway system called the Mass Rapid transit (MRT). The MRT runs throughout the city and will get you to your destination in the fastest way possible. If you’re a tourist, rest assured that whatever touristy place you have on your list will be within walkable distance from the stations. Though you can buy a ticket each time you travel, it’s easier to purchase a Singapore Tourist Pass that allows unlimited travel for an absolute value. Services start at 05:30 am and runs until midnight unless otherwise extended during festive times. During peak hours, you can expect a train every 2-3 minutes. The MRT authorities also provide wheelchairs, allow strollers and are easily accessible for the visually impaired.
If you want to travel on the road and not miss out on the beautiful and scenic view of the city, then take the safe transport services in Singapore that the city offers. Buses are plenty, spacious and comfortable, not to mention economical. The Singapore Tourist pass also works for buses, which plies throughout the town and is very well connected.
In the off chance that your destination is not easily accessible by MRT or buses, you can hail a taxi and travel comfortably. You have to pay by meter readings, but it’s advisable that you ask your driver of any surcharges that might apply, before you get up, to get a fair estimate of your fare.
Now that you know travelling around the city is a cakewalk, you just have to plan on reaching it!
