Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the best way to travel around Singapore?
By far the best way to get around is the MRT, which stands for Mass Rapid Transit. It’s easy to navigate, clean and comfortable, and incredibly efficient with trains running every few minutes from 5.30am until midnight. Taxis are also affordable and convenient, as is the bus network.
What language is spoken in Singapore?
The majority of Singaporeans, regardless of ethnicity, are bilingual English speakers. The other main languages spoken include Mandarin Chinese, Bahasa Malay, and Tamil.
When’s the best time of year to visit Singapore?
Singapore is actually great to visit all year round, with consistently hot, sunny weather. It’s located near the equator and so has a typical tropical climate. There are, however, two monsoon seasons to be mindful of, from December to early March, and from June to September.
Singapore seamlessly merges Eastern and Western culture, all wrapped up in a vibrant, modern package. Contrast the glittering lights of the city with the UNESCO World Heritage listed Botanic Gardens. And with the MRT public transport system at your disposal, you can explore every aspect of Singapore with the quick, clean and efficient ease this city’s known for.
