2 Days Singapore Stopover Tour

by Ishaan

Hi Gabriel

I will be going to India via Singapore and I have a stopover of nearly 54 hrs in Singapore. In that time, I would like to see as much of Singapore as possible, so can you kindly recommend me some tours for that much time?

Also since I haven't booked my hotel yet, can you recommend me some budget hotels in convenient locations?

Hi Ishaan

For a 2-Day "Best of Singapore" Stopover Tour, you could try something like this:

Day 1: Singapore Duck Tour + Zoo + Night Safari

The Duck Tour uses a re-engineered WW2 amphibious vehicle. You get to see the city's main sights on land. Then the Duck goes onto the waters of Marina Bay, where you may get a good view of the city skyline and historical sites.

Thereafter, you visit 2 of Singapore's most worthwhile parks: the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. You could buy a 2-in-1 Park Hopper ticket at the door to enjoy some discount off the 2 parks.

Day 2: The 3 Ethnic Quarters

Morning: Chinatown

Take a walking tour of Chinatown. Begin with a walk through the sights on the 'Street of Faiths' (Telok Ayer Street).

Stopover at Maxwell Road Food Centre or Chinatown Complex Food Centre to sample some of the best local food.

Thereafter go souvenir hunting at Sago Street, Temple Street and Pagoda Street.

Afternoon: Kampong Glam - The Malay Arab Quarter

Evening: Little India + Shopping at Mustafa Centre

Singapore Budget Hotels in Convenient Locations?

You could check out these highly rated budget hotels in Singapore:

1. Victoria Hotel Singapore

The Victoria Hotel is a popular budget-class hotel near the city centre.

2. Hotel 81 Dickson

This is a relatively new hotel in Little India which as received largely positive feedback from guests.

3. YWCA Fort Canning Lodge

The Fort Canning Lodge is on a quiet location near the Orchard Road shopping belt.

Tour Operators for Singapore Itinerary
by: Anonymous

Hi Gabriel

I was glad to receive your mail and it was very helpful for me.

I want to ask one more thing - can my above tour of 2 days be covered by any good tour operator as I don't want to experience any problems while touring Singapore in trains and then keep getting lost in there.

Thanks and regards.

DIY Singapore Tour is Easy;
Guided Package Tour Possible

by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Ishaan

The travel spots recommended above are very easy to get to on your own. And the MRT city trains, which are very easy to use, could be your main form of transport.

Once you get hold of a free tourist map at the airport's Visitors' Centre, you can easily navigate using the MRT. Only the Zoo/Night Safari will require an extra bus (No. 138), which is easily connected to - after taking the train to Ang Mo Kio.

Doing the tour on your own will give you more flexibility and save you some money.

However, if you want a tour guide/agency to take you on a package tour, I could forward your request to someone reliable. Just let me know and I'll do just that.
