Travel To Singapore
  With the advent of modern transportation tools, we no longer have to endure months of travelling on ships in cramped and overcrowded conditions the way our forefathers did.

For visitors from most parts of the world, air travel will be the fastest way of getting to Singapore.

Others in the Southeast Asia region have a bit more variety and can choose to travel by train, ferry, bus or car. Knowing your budget and time constraints will help you to make the most appropriate travel choice for your journey into Singapore

Country Description

The Republic of Singapore is an independent nation in Southeast Asia. Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, separated only by the narrow Strait of Johor from the mainland, it is a prosperous nation whose people enjoy one of the highest standards of living in Asia. Singapore's resident population of over 4.2 million inhabitants is comprised of 77% Chinese, 14% Malay, 8% Indian and 1% others. Common languages English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. English is widely spoken.

Sitting just about 110 km (70 mi) north of the equator, the nation has a tropical, wet climate: hot, humid, and rainy with little seasonal change. Annual average temperatures range from a high 28 degrees C (82 degrees F) to a low 23 degrees C (73 degrees F)..

Entry/Exit Requirements & Customs

Visitors, who hold a valid passport with at least six months validity and have firm booking and entry facilities to their next destination, may transit in Singapore without a visa. For more please visit Immigration and Customs.

Some items are not allowed to be brought into Singapore. Entry for some items will only be allowed on production of import permit or other authorisation from the relevant authority. For more please visit Immigration and Customs. Location

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.

Medical Facilities and Health Information

Good medical care is widely available in Singapore. Doctors and hospitals expect immediate payment for health services by credit card or cash.
