How to Get around Singapore

Learn how to get around Singapore in this Howcast travel video.


"A lot of Singapore is easy to walk around, but the tropical heat can make it unpleasant sometimes. Luckily, if you don’t want to work up a sweat, there are plenty of other reliable options. Singapore’s taxis are safe, clean, relatively inexpensive, and the drivers are helpful. Taxis are a good choice if you’re worried about getting lost–but you might have a little trouble getting one during rush hours, so it’s good to have a backup plan. It’s hard to go wrong with the Mass Rapid Transit, or MRT, system. It’s cheap, reliable, and will take you to most of the popular tourist destinations. Just make sure you know exactly where you want to go before you buy your ticket, as the fares are based on destination. If you plan on using the MRT system a lot during your stay, consider buying a Singapore Tourist Pass or an EZ-Link fare card so you won’t have to worry about paying the wrong amount. These can also be used to pay on buses, which will take you just about anywhere the MRT system won’t, and have the added bonus of letting you sightsee while you ride. The downside is that they can be a little slow. However you decide to get around, you probably won’t have much trouble; most Singaporeans speak English and the maps are easy to understand."
