How to Get Around | Singapore Travel

"A lot of Singapore is easy to walk around,but the tropical heat can make it unpleasant sometimes.

Luckily, if you don’t want towork up a sweat, there are plenty of other reliable options.

Singapore’s taxis aresafe, clean, relatively inexpensive, and the drivers are helpful.

Taxis are a good choiceif you’re worried about getting lost–but you might have a little trouble getting oneduring rush hours, so it’s good to have a backup plan.

It’s hard to go wrong withthe Mass Rapid Transit, or MRT, system.

It’s cheap, reliable, and will take you to mostof the popular tourist destinations.

Just make sure you know exactly where you wantto go before you buy your ticket, as the fares are based on destination.

If you plan on usingthe MRT system a lot during your stay, consider buying a Singapore Tourist Pass or an EZ-Linkfare card so you won’t have to worry about paying the wrong amount.

These can also beused 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 theycan be a little slow.

However you decide to get around, you probably won’t have muchtrouble; most Singaporeans speak English and the maps are easy to understand.
