Things to remember when traveling to Singapore

When traveling to Singapore, it is important to know the following things: Singaporeans are polite and efficient. It’s common for locals to greet tourists warmly as they walk by or stop in their tracks when you speak English. This politeness extends even beyond interactions with strangers; Singaporean bosses will often ask junior staffers how their families are doing, etc., rather than just issue orders. Furthermore, be aware that most transactions take place in Singlish – a mixture of Chinese and Malay dialects which sounds like gibberish at first but actually makes perfect sense once you learn some basics (ie “lah” means “yesterday” while “kampung” means village).

Survival in the Lion City

When traveling to Singapore, it is very important to be prepared for any eventuality. The city is very large and therefore can be difficult to navigate if you are not familiar with the layout. Some basic tips for packing for a trip to Singapore include bringing a map, carrying a phone charger and a travel wallet, and packing any medications you may need in case of an emergency. If you get lost, remember that Singapore is fairly easy to find again once you figure out your bearings. There are plenty of street signs and landmarks to guide you. 

Ya got enough Singaporean dollars, eh?

Additionally, it is a good idea to carry enough money in local currency and to avoid carrying large amounts of cash. It is also a good idea to know the prices of things in Singapore in advance, as prices may vary depending on the area you are in. Lastly, it is always a good idea to be aware of local regulations and avoid causing any disruptions or causing any trouble.

When traveling to Singapore, it is important to be aware of the layout of the city, be familiar with local regulations, and be prepared for any eventuality. Moreover, be smart by carrying just enough Singaporean dollars to get by while traveling.
