    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to go to Yishun area (northern part of Singapore) is to take the MRT sub-way system north from the city (north-south line). You can either alight at the Khatib or Yishun MRT station, and it is very convenient to move around as it is very safe and most of the local people are friendly and can communicate in English.
