from Singapore to Johor Bahru, Malasysia

by serdago

Hello,

Thanks

You don't need a taxi. There are regular shuttles between SG and JB. If you want to return really late then your option could be the taxi. The immigration points are usually very crowded on Friday evenings, Monday mornings and during the weekends. If you avoid the office hour rush, you will pass from both very quickly. You can find the bus number in my Singapore transportation tips.

There are many ways to get through. A taxi is one, although the cheapest is to grab one of the Malaysian buses at one of the malls in The Woodlands. It costs about 2 SIN dollars.

By taxi it depends on the queue. It can take hours if you go during heavy times as noted by the poster above. I usually take a bus over then hire a driver for the day for who takes me back.

Avoid evening hours at the causeway as traffic is usually high.

The most economical would to take a free shuttle from the Airport to Resort World Sentosa (by the resort operator) and another free shuttle operating between Resort World Sentosa to Johor. At Resort World Sentosa (by the resort operator), there the Universal Studio, Casino, shops, eateries, hotels and many more.

There are paid express bus operating from Queens Street to Johor. Getting to Queens Street from the Airport may not be very convenient.

There are public buses plying between Singapore and Johor (eg. bus no. 170). Try these website:

Travel Tips for Singapore

Walking Around Chinatown

by pres_16

Located alongside the Singapore River, you'll see here a different chinatown because of its clean sorroundings and there's a feeling less danger while walking around. The streets are lined with shophouses and restaurants. Here, I've seen more of those shophouses with that design of the windows that I really like. You will see here a combination of traditional and modern day architecture.

At Smith St. is where we had our late lunch. There's so much to explore here but because of lack of time, we have to leave and head to our next stop, the Sentosa Island.

Batam Island

by masonwong

It was a single-day trip. S$32 per person, through Indo Falcon Shipping & Travel Pte Ltd. Tel: (65) 6275 7393 or web: www.indofalcon.com.sg
My friend works there, so she helped me with the bookings. Boarding at the Harbourfront Centre.

The trip is basically sight-seeing, water-sport activities, SHOPPING, food, massage, visiting temples etc.

Singapore Post

by SLLiew

The Singapore Postal system is efficient. There are post offices all over including one at Ngee Ann City at Orchard Road.

You can get buy postcards as well. However all addresses must be in English to send out your parcel or mail.

Some of the staff I found are impatience and not so tolerant. So don't worry as long as your mail will arrive back home. So far all my postcards sent from Singapore arrived.

Check the website for the Post office ofyour closest lcoation and the operating hours.

Different races..

by yuet29

There are different races in Singapore, chinese as majority, follow by malay and indian.

According to the constitutional law in Singapore, followed British law, all people are guarantee for three fundamental right:
1. equity
2. freedom to choose own religion
3. freedom of speech (you need to have special application for this, and a special location for you to speak, which the location is just beside a police kiosk)

Thus, you can see temples, mosques and churches here..

Some other recommendations

by rhaps0dies

Singapore's a shopper's paradise. I would suggest bringing a foldable bag in case you should buy more than you had planned to. Your hotel/hostel should provide you with toiletries and medical supplies. If you don't have them (especially at the hostels), just ask. No harm in asking. Singaporeans are usually quite helpful. But if not, there are convenient stores and supermarkets at most parts of the island and these items are normally not expensive.
