Singapore is very small compared to practically everywhere else but still give some thought to the location you would like to stay, look at your workplace, schools, shopping areas, nearby MRT stations etc. Singapore is conveniently divided into districts so see if you can pin-down 2 or 3 districts of your preference. As a very crude guide; districts 10 and 11 are central and the more expensive with rentals, for similar accommodation, dropping if you get away further from there. There are expensive pockets in other parts of town too though.
Travel By Plane
Our status as major aviation hub in the Asia Pacific region makes air travel the natural choice for visitors travelling to Singapore. The world class Singapore Changi Airport is host to 80 airlines serving more than 180 cities in over 50 countries, and is a popular starting or ending point for travellers touring the region.
No discussion on Singapore air travel is complete without the mention of Singapore Airlines. The award-winning airline provides a flying experience that is truly unparalleled. For even the weariest of traveller, the Singapore Girl is indeed a sight for sore eyes.
Travel By Ferry
Sea transportation is mainly for commercial use; however, there are ferry services for travellers which ply the route between Singapore and Malaysia/Indonesia. You can travel between Singapore and the Malaysian resort island of Tioman and Tanjong Belungkor (east of Johor) or between Singapore and nearby Riau islands of Bintan and Batam. These ferries operate at the Singapore Cruise Centre, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and Changi Ferry Terminal.
Travel By Train
If you are travelling from Malaysia and are not in a hurry, you can also choose to enter Singapore by rail. Train services operated by the Malaysian Railway connect Singapore and key cities and towns on the western seaboard of Malaysia and provide a comfortable and affordable means of travel between the two countries.
For those entering Singapore from Thailand, if you can afford to splurge on the journey, you may want to think about travelling in style on the luxurious and exotic Orient Express.
