Taxi from Airport to Traders hotel

by JAMES1981

Hi There

I am going to Singapore in Oct. I have no transfers set up but I am staying at the Traders hotel the address is 1A Cuscaden Road 249716 Singapore. Can anyone tell me the best way to get a Taxi and how much it will roughly cost from the airport ?

I will also be going to sentosa Island to visit universal Studios is it best to get a taxi here to ?

Thanks in advance for any info

Taxi from airport to hotels are easy to get from the airport and usually cost between 25-30 SGD, if busy pay the extra and get a private limo transfer for $45. But you shouldn't have any worries, just head outside to the taxi rank, its obvious and stands out...

Now universal, use the MRT to head to the harbourfront, then take the mono rail across to sentosa, from there walk to universal studios. Whilst on sentosa check out the tiger tower, it has great views of singapore and only $12. Why not stay till night and take in the Sounds of the sea light and fountain show, its excellant and only $10.

Cheers Heather

Hi Heather

Thanks for the information on the taxis. Should manage to pick
up a taxi without problems then.

I may well do the Tiger tower while on Sentosa island too I like the sound off
it. Will be sure to take the Mon Rail instead of a taxi.

Thanks again Heather.

Hey,

I'm not sure which part of October you're planning to visit Singapore in but here's an interesting thing you may want to check out while you're there. "The Mid-Autumn Festival, also called the Mooncake or Lantern Festival, is a traditional harvest festival that is celebrated annually by the Chinese. This year, the festival takes place from 11 September to 10 October." It's basically like thanksgiving.

Oh and taking a taxi to Universal Studios is pretty expensive. You may want to take the MRT down to Harbor Front and get onboard the Sentosa Express which will take you right to the doorstep of Universal Studios. Hope this helps! Cheers

Hi James,

no problem! There are a list of other stuff/activities/events on the link that I gave you. Some of the events look really awesome! A pity you can't go to Singapore earlier if not you would be able to hit either the Hari Raya Celebrations or the Formula 1 Night Race! :)

Nonetheless good luck and hope you find what you need!

Travel Tips for Singapore

Weather

by studiopaparazzi

Like most of Southeast Asia, Singapore is generally hot and humid. It's warm and humid year round, with the temperature almost never dropping below 20?C (68?F), even at night, and usually climbing to 30?C (86?F) during the day. Recent times, it even reached till 35?C. Humidity is high, mounting over a 75% mark.

November and December is the rainy season. June-August is considered to be the best time to visit, but even then it rains often. Don't let the climate stop you from going, however. Most buildings are air-conditioned (to the point that you may want to take a sweater), and pains have been taken to make everything as comfortable as can be, all things considered. When it does rain, it's generally only for a short period.

For those who enjoy the sun and the beach, Singapore is an ideal place for beach lovers, as you get the hot hot sun throughout the year. So when you're in Singapore, just bring along your cooling apparels and hats.

Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles

by Jmill42

Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles was a British Lieutenant-Governor and was credited with turning Singapore from a tiny fishing village into a major British trading port. He had to use a little trickery to be allowed to make a settlement here, in the end modern-day Singapore is what we have.

Here is a link to the full story of Sir Thomas Raffles:

Language

by iam1wthee

Most people do speak English but you have a few who are hard pressed on speaking Singlish and will get pissed off if you do not understand.

*** This does not only happen in Singapore it happens in other countries too.

Singapore Currency

by SLLiew

Approximate exchange:
1 Singapore Dollar = 0.63 US Dollar

Singapore dollar is pegged with Brunei Dollar and can be used interchangeable in Brunei.

Coins : 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents, $1

Banknotes $2, $5, $10, $50, $100, $1000, $10000

The bills depict Encik Yusof bin Ishak, the first President of the Republic of Singapore.

I found the different shapes and small size of the coins difficult to handle.
