Singapore is a city-state located in the northern part of Asia. It is known for its cosmopolitan culture, abundance of nightlife, and affordable dining. Although Singapore is not a large city, it never misses a beat with its array of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, markets, and shops.
With so many places to visit and eat in Singapore, it can be difficult to choose. That is why we have come to help you. This article will discuss some tips for finding great eats in Singapore!
Tip 1: Look for local restaurants
Local restaurants are usually close to homely. Since most people live in downtown districts and do not have time to go out for dinner every day, look for local restaurants that are close to where you live. You can even ask your neighbors if they have any recommended local eateries!
These are going to be more casual so try not to be too picky as you look at their menu.
Booking a hotel room or a flight as soon as you get to the destination is the best way to travel comfortably. Theres no rush, and you will save money in the process.
Most of the time, if you book early, you will have the room in advance, and can even pay for it in full. This is because the hotels that are full and have limited rooms are ready to charge their customers who have paid for them in full.
This also applies to flights as most of the time they are fully booked! Buying a flight at an early stage of booking will be expensive as everyone will have to pay more due to higher prices.
Tip: When looking for hotels and flights, either on google play or app store, make sure that they are in a safe area. There are times when hotel staff or police comes looking for people who do not respect rules and regulations.
Choose your destination
Choosing the right place to live can be a little tricky at the start. There are so many different countries and places you can call home! Which one is right for you?
At this stage, you should assess how far you have to travel to get your home country’s citizenship. The process takes a few years but it is possible!
There are several things you should look for when choosing your country of residence. The main ones are: political stability, quality of life, food, and culture. Each of these factors can vary between places so do your research before choosing where you will live.
Political stability means whether or not your government allows free speech, freedom of assembly, and whether or not they engage in international political affairs. All of these aspects of life in my country don’t always match up with the quality of life I want!
The food is important to me as a user of healthy diets so that area also takes into account if eating healthily is worth the effort for me.
Get a visa
A visa is required to travel to most countries in the Asia Pacific region. Most countries in the region have restrictions on who can visit them and what nationalities you can bring in as visitors.
To get a visa to visit Singapore, you must first go through a government-backed tour operator such as TripAdvisor’s Singapore Expert or Meetup’s Singapore Travel Meetups. These tours typically require you to book with the travel company for about a week before your trip, and they charge around $100 per person—that’s excluding airfare of course!
The original plan was to fly home on my own after completing my tour, but TripAdvisor had some problems with that due to safety concerns. Instead, they recommended flying with Exellion Airways, who offers head-up displays so you can see where your plane is going and how long it will take before arriving at your destination airport.
When you’re packing, pay attention to what you are wearing. You want to feel comfortable and safe while traveling, right? If your clothes are showing a lot of skin, then pack less stuff!
We recommend staying with two pieces of clothing and two pairs of shoes for traveling. You can also save some money by only packing one item of clothing per pair of clothes.
Two bags is better than one bag because you have more space to put things. Plus, if one bag gets lost or damaged, you can easily make a new one without having to buy a new set of bags altogether.
One important thing to keep in mind when switching up the style and layout of your bags is lining them up properly.
Know your transportation options
If you’re traveling by public transportation, get out the map! The best way to know where the stops are and how to get there using the subway or the trains is to have a map.
You can also look up instructions for riding the trains and the subways on your phone or via Google Maps. And if you’re traveling by taxi, have a list of cab companies and their taxi numbers written in a notebook next to your phone.
Know your exit points and entrances too! This includes knowing where taxis stand outside of tourist areas and where parking lots are located. It also includes finding places to eat and sleeping!
These things can save you time, energy, and money in case you need to travel fast.
Make sure you have data on your phone
Even if you do not have a data plan with your phone, make sure you have at least battery life left. Your phone will be useful while you are away, so do not forget to use it!
You can also make sure that your contacts and messages are up to date by checking your smartphone’s app or messaging app. Make sure that everyone knows you are going away for the weekend and that they know to call or send a message if they need to talk immediately.
Make sure you have enough money for your trip as well as taking some extra money in case of emergencies. You do not want to be sitting in front of the airport trying to find cash as soon as you realize something has happened!
Lastly, check into having any hangovers or missing limbs while traveling by yourself or with a group.
You should take pictures of everything you do while in Singapore. It’s never too late to take pictures, especially if you are going to be busy taking care of children or large groups.
Many things and people are visible by picture, so it will help you figure out if someone is needs help or not. You can even post these pictures on social media to help others see what a great place Singapore is!
Try using the camera on your phone or a dedicated camera for the trip, it will be more user-friendly and take better pictures than your normal phone. A good rule of photography is to keep the lens half-open while taking a picture, so that there is some light coming through the lens and onto the photos.
Make notes of interesting places and things you see
One of the most important things to do when traveling is to make notes of interesting places and things you see. This will help you filter out some of the less enjoyable things that may come your way.
Many times while on vacation, things don’t go as planned, but you can still take away positives. For example, if you see a fun place that looks liked an experience, put into action your ideas for how you would like this place to be and let God use that to bring it into reality.
Another thing you can do is make notes of interesting things that happen to you. While I cannot guarantee this will happen to me, I would bet my money that it might if I keep recording my experiences.
