Eat till you sink 5 days SG trip!

5 Days 4 Nights in Singapore

COME & EXPLORE secret food and places that no other tourist knows! Travel-Foodies, this is your TOP itinerary for Singapore. I only recommend eateries that are well enjoyed by LOCALS, not any mainstream restaurants that can be found everywhere. Side activities are also filled with local flavors. With my guide, your cost of traveling within the city is also cheaper, as you won't need to spend on cab/taxi unnecessarily. Thus, you'll get to shop more, eat more. Your best guide for local experience!


Things to Note:
Medicine for digestion, wet-tissues, good camera device for capturing yummy foods and anything that can help you eat more!
Recommended budget:
Est. US$243/pax

Finally in Singapore! But honestly there isn't much to do around in airport, so just take some quick photos and proceed straight to hotel! If your flight timing allow, I do recommend your arrival time to be 12PM or later. I've set the start time to 10AM for now, in case you arrive early. Let's go for lunch before checking in hotel! *Note: Day 1 activites are skippable, as arrival timing varies, so I will only suggest niche activities. The real fun starts on Day 2!

Buy a EZ-Link Card (base cost SG$5) and request for the "Stored Value" to be topped up to SG$20. The amount can last you for the whole trip.

Remember to grab the MRT link map, you will need it very much.

Check-in Aqueen Paya Lebar Hotel
$50
As typical check-in time for Singapore hotels are 2PM. If you arrived earlier, chances are the hotel receptionists are able to keep your baggage first, so you can use the time to explore the hotel's surroundings and do some simple sightseeing of the city. I recommend Queen's Hotel because it is new, comfortable and affordable. Train and bus stations are near, allowing easy access to all parts of Singapore. Shopping Mall (Paya Lebar Square) is also within range.
