hotel near the action

by ketch1973

hi guys,

can you please recommend an inexpensive hotel which has a swimming pool which is not far from a good range of pubs/clubs and restaurants? i was last in singapore 10 years ago and cant remember where in the city i stayed.

any advice on things to do/see areas to stay in or avoid will be much appreciated.

many thanks,

mike

Hi Mike, Unfortunately there is a dearth of inexpensive hotels in Singapore. Its like finding hen's teeth! My husband works there and lives in NZ so he flies there every month (me, 3-4 x/yr). We always shop around for a deal on the websites (agoda, asiarooms, wotif etc) and its getting harder to find much around the $150 mark. The best area IMHO for pubs/food etc. is the Boat Quay on the Singapore River. So many options, it could keep you busy for a month!
We have stayed at Grand Copthorne Waterfront, Furama Riverfront, Copthorne King's, Miramar and River View Hotel. They all have swimming pools and all on Havelock Road. Good standard, clean, spacious modern rooms. However, they come in around the $180-200 mark. Specials are often available down to $140 - its just keeping an eye open and hoping it coincides with your travel dates. Weekends are always cheaper with inclusions in the deal. We've tried cheaper hotels as an experiment and unfortunately were robbed from our room in one so we tend to stick with the standard we have now set for ourselves.
Not sure of your taste on things to do, but try looking at viator.com for ideas on tours (but do them yourself using MRT/buses/taxis) and there's heaps of tourist stuff on arrival at Changi. We lived in S'pore for 8yrs and have now been in and out for almost 24 yrs. Its changed heaps - you'll notice after 10 yrs. Good luck and enjoy your visit.

Ive just returned back from Singapore in the last week, although this time we tried a very good backpackers it may not be your style. Previously i have stayed at the Peninsula Excelsior, its close to boat quay and clarke quay, plus across the road from the city hall mrt station. If you want to stay in the Orchard road area ive also stayed at the York Hotel, its a little bit more expensive but nice, it does have a horrible hill to climb up at the end of a day though.

Things to do, well that depends on what you like to see, definately check out Viator.com it will give you ideas that you can do cheaper on your own. We crammed in a trip across the causeway to Johore Bahru, the singapore flyer, Infinity (singapore's new casino observation deck) for the best views i recommend the tiger tower ride on sentosa, an afternoon chinese junket cruise and the sentosa laser light show. All within two days/three nights. Off course there is the singapore zoo, bird park etc. One thing you won't get bored in singapore.

Feel free to email me if you want any further answers or costs.....

Cheers Heather

Travel Tips for Singapore

No paper napkins!

by dcrubio

Weird, but somehow, there is a lack of paper napkins at eateries like the foodcourt / hawker centers... they may come with your drink (if you ask!), but not with your food... You will realize this when you see old people selling them by the pack for SG$1... a better option is to buy wipes at the supermarket, and always have some with you... ;-)

Climate in Singapore

by imstress

Singapore has a tropical, hot and humid climate throughout the year.

Temperatures reach a maximum of 32-33°C during the day, falling to a pleasant 23-25°C during evening hours.

Rainfall is most abundant during the Northeast Monsoon season from November to January. Much of the rain falls in sudden showers.

Bring an umbrella be it rain or shine.

Little known organization that I know little about

by Skylink

There is a government sponsored organization called the SDU, which I think stands for Social Development Unit and not Single, Desparate, and Ugly. There is a similar organization in Singapore called the SDS, I think.

I think it's a dating service, but I am not certain. There is no government sponsored organization like it that I am aware of in North America.

Is it a local Singaporean custom not to mention the SDU and keep it a secret among locals? I wonder if the SDU is a good idea or a waste of public money (sometimes called "pork barrelled project" in the United States).

Patriotism

by SLLiew

Besides the "kiasu" syndrome (i.e. always want to win, afraid to lose out even though a little to others), I am impressed by the patriotism of our fellow Singaporeans.

When we Malaysians are overseas, we suddenly become proud of being Malaysians but we cannot match Singaporeans. They will fly their flags or put flag stickers on their foreign mailboxes.

Perhaps it is the national service instilled in them. Perhaps it is just being Singaporean. Anyway, it is just my opinion and I think we Malaysians should emulate Singaporeans in this aspect.

Changi Boardwalk

by Rachelynn

Fancy some walking around our nature parks while in Singapore? See you at Changi Boardwalk.

It's abt 1.2km as you stroll along, you can feast your eyes on the coastal lines of Changi Beach and breathe in the fresh air in the midst of the wide greenery of nature.

This boardwalk consists of four routes:

1) Sunset Walk - this is a great walk as you enjoy the sunset view over Changi Point,

2) Kelong Walk: a stretch of the boardwalk with the traditional kelong stilts built over water.

3)Cliff Walk: this is located just below the hilltop chalets, you will be surrounded by lotsa greens and gresh air. You will be pleased to know that there are viewing decks along this stretch that gives you fantastic view.

4)Sailing Point Walk: near the Changi Sailing Club provides open views of the sea.

There are guided walks at certain days, you may wish to email to the address below to check it out.

Get away from orchard Road & Chinatown & see a more 'nature' side of Singapore!
