    Careful what you are getting into...

    by

    I'd like to give fair warning to all travellers intending to stay in this hostel. Lollypopcorn Hostel is located within government residential housing and according to Singapore law, this is considered illegal.

    Don't worry, you won't get jailed or fined if caught but its likely you'll get evicted without any refund and the owner of the apartment forfeits the apartment to the Government.

    Cheers!

Transit passenger - Singapore tour from airport

by sdagd

Hi,

I'll go to Singapore from KL at 30 October and I'll be there around 13:00. I'll have about 12 hours till the next flight. Is it possible to go to city center as a tourist, should I need visa or stg.? And is there any official website to get detailed information for this...?

Thanks a lot for advance...

There are free tours operating out of Changi Airport.
http://www.changiairport.com/at-changi/leisure-indulgences/free-singapore-tour

If you miss the last registration for this free tour by 3:30pm, you can always catch the subway that goes right to the heart of the city (City Hall Station, Raffles Place Station) and many other interesting places.

for visa, check this webpage:

they have a tourist infomation booth at the airport that will direct you into the city and back. 12 hours is enough time as they all ready know that there are long lay overs in Singapore. Cheers Tommy x

Travel Tips for Singapore

Awoid the crowd at the Night Safari

by Carino

I really like to go to the Night Safara. But if you go before 9pm prepare for a large crowd and long lines. My tip: Go around 9.30pm or 10pm. You might miss some shows but the line is much shorter and you can really enjoy your hikes around the Zoo.

Sinagpore's Natural Beauty

by Jmill42

With the climate that Singapore has, it is perfect for many different types of plants and flowers. This is completely evident walking around the city's streets or, as I would suggest, walking around one of the city's three main gardens. The Japanese and Chinese Gardens are located together, but are inferior to Singapore's Botanical Gardens.

Check out my "Must See" tips for info on each.

Bloody Sunday drivers

by Henrik_rrb

In Sweden we have a way of saying when it comes to bad drivers - Sunday drivers. I'm not sure if the expression really comes from the Singaporean law system, but here you have a special kind of cars that are only allowed to be driven during the weekend and in the night.

Background is that in Singapore there are way too many cars. And to prevent this problem to grow even bigger it's not only the car you'll have to buy, but also the right to drive it. That cost can be almost as much as you pay for the car.

To give everyone at least a possibility to owe a car the Singapore leaders have issued two different id signs on the car. The black one, which is the normal one (and that you have a half leg and an arm for), the red one. That sign costs a lot less in tax and to buy, but it also means that you're only allowed to drive on certain hours of the week.

Every day between 7pm and 7am.
Saturday afternoon and night.
The whole Sunday.

If you do drive your car on other hours you'll risk a heavy fine. You can though use it legally if you pay 20 SGD (10 euro) per time you want to use it.

The idea is good, but it also gives the country a whole lot of drivers who very rarely drives their car. And I think you all know what happens with your knowledges when you're not using them often enough.

The guys with the red signs can't drive, simple as that. Same as in Sweden, when Sunday drivers are the ones who can't go in the right pace, they shift between the lines or use two at the same time, and are so careful when it comes to driving that they are a danger for both themselves and everyone around them.

As if it wasn't bad enough that they were driving on the wrong side of the road... ;)

They sell a large varietyof things like foods and drinks, alcoholic beverages, kitchen and bathroom needs plus personal toiletry items.

Singapore's Big Walk

by Aidy_p

What better way to get to know Singaporeans better than to participate in the annual walk organised by Singapore's daily - The New Paper. If you are here in Singapore around the month of May, you might like to walk with thousands of Singaporeans. They will also be more than happy to talk to you as you stroll along. That is if they still have the breath.

As many as 77,000 people participated in the 2000 Big Walk to walk a total distance of 10km. A good pair of running shoes and running gears. Also, water bottle to hydrate yourself in this humid island.
