My Trip to Singapore

On March 2019 I had the opportunity to go to Singapore and it was a wonderful experience, we created beautiful memories that I will cherish forever. In this blog post, you will find tips and ideas of where to go and what to do in Singapore.

Before I left Miami, I created a list of places I wanted to go. This way I had a pretty good idea of what to do without missing anything. Some of the information I researched was at Visit Singapore

What’s in My Bag?

I took the essentials but and I checked the weather before to take everything I need. Make sure you take your medicine, legal papers, phone chargers, and more!

What to Pack?

Travel Deals:

We stayed in the Marina Bay Sands and right before we went over there, I applied online for their FREE lifestyle member card. With this card, I earned points in most of the restaurants, shops, and all the amenities all over the Marina Bay Sands, including the Shops and my favorite; their food court. Check out My Blog Post about this gorgeous place!

Transportation:

•    BigBus

Here you can discover many sight and attractions in Singapore with 5 routes and over 60 stops. You will be able to listen to the tour guides in 12 different languages.

•    Taxi

I got to use their taxis about four times because we were in a rush. Their service was great and efficient. They all speak English. We paid with cash but they also accept credit cards.

•    MRT (mass rapid transit)

This was my favorite; I absolutely loved my experience with the MRT. I got to use it the first time after I did some research and ask the lady in customer service. The station I got out from was the Bayfront, which was located in the Marina Bay Shops.

Apps:

I have an iPhone and these are the apps I used the most on my stay over there in Singapore:

•    Google Trip

•    Yelp

•    Currency+   

•    Weather

Currency:

The currency is the Singapore Dollar and  SGD$0.74 is equal to one American dollar. I changed twice in the same Hotel I stayed at and I loved the material of their currency, all plastic…very cool!
