5 Ways to Enjoy Singapore on a Budget

Singapore is an island city-country renowned for its futuristic approach to modern living. The city’s tropical climate allows for an average temperature of just over 77°F (25°C), which is more than suitable for year-round visits. Singapore is also a well-established part of the global tech community which, not only brought better living standards, but also introduced the city to the rest of the world as well. Consequently, the rise in tourism made Singapore super affordable for travelers on a budget.

An abundance of cultural experiences
Even though Singapore is not a large country in comparison to its neighbors, it does boast a population of over 5.7 million, a diversity of cultures, and a mix of traditions you shouldn’t skip during your travels. Most of the cultural symbols that are scattered across Singapore are either free to visit, or require a scheduled tour – which is also free. And if you do end up paying for a visit, it won’t even put a dent in your travel budget. Just make sure you make your plans in advance; otherwise, you might miss out on exquisite cultural experiences.

The icons of Singapore 
There are so many things to see and places to visit in Singapore that you just need to pick a direction a start exploring. Whether you want to see the futuristic Electric Forest at Gardens by the Bay, take a selfie with Merlion, the icon of Singapore, or see the city from a whopping height of 715 feet, you’re certainly in for a treat. The list of attractions is long, and most of them are either free or require a small fee, which is perfect for travelers on a budget.

Foodies’ paradise with a Michelin star
If you get tired from rushing across the island nation in search for the next experience, drop by the Amoy Street Food Center. Known for its food stalls dubbed hawkers, Amoy Street is by far the best way to stay on budget and eat delicious food. You will also get a chance to eat Michelin-starred dishes that won’t cost you more than a fraction of an average-priced meal. Just keep your eye out for a line and you’ll know you’ve come to the right place.

Accommodation meets your budget
The best way to stick to your budget while visiting Singapore is to stay at one of the many city hotels neatly positioned all over the city. And if you do plan to save your budget on the aforementioned, you can definitely find a decent number of hotel rooms that meet your price and quality criteria. After all, Singapore is a tech-mecca open to sharing information online which means finding adequate accommodation is not an issue.

Traveling around is super easy
In comparison to super-cities in the neighboring countries, Singapore is by no means a huge city. Most travel agencies offer walking tours, which means you don’t have to spend your hard earned money on expensive charter transportation. However, if you want to save some time and see more of this gorgeous island city, you should get an EZ-Link Card. It’s a prepaid system that lets you use any type of local transportation for a small fee. You can even get a flat rate which is cheaper than paying for separate rides. Plus, you won’t spend nearly as much as you would on taxis and shuttles.

It goes without saying that Singapore should be on everyone’s bucket list. If not for the unique aspect of clashing cultures, then for the technological advancements displayed all over the city. Singapore might sound expensive at first, but a deeper search will show you that you really don’t need much to explore and make memories that will last a lifetime.
