Singapore’s public transportation system is easily one of the best in Asia, if not the world. Even for foreigners who are travelling to Singapore for the first time, it’s not really that hard for them to get around the country.
Between the number of accessible transportation options available and the well-planned road system, going to-and-fro wherever you want to go will be easy.
But still, it helps to know where and how to get around.
Below are some of the best ways to get around Singapore.
1. The Mass Rapid Transit System
The five lines of Singapore’s MRT system pretty much covers wherever you want to go if you’re willing to put in the long work, which really isn’t that far off.
The only downside is that the trains can get a little bit too crowded during peak hours. Although, if it’s any consolation, delayed are relatively unheard of so you can still expect to get to where you want to go on time, and the city is relatively safe, so even if it’s crowded, you don’t really have to worry about your things getting stolen.
Similar to the MRT, the public buses in Singapore cover pretty much every place locals and foreigners alike would love to visit. Not to mention, buses are also perfect for foreigners and first-time tourists because you can really take in the sights that the city has to offer.
Just don’t forget to tap your EZ-link card when you get it and once you get off.
If you’re willing to spend a little bit more and want your trip to be private, you can hire a taxi to get to where you want to go in Singapore.
It’s easy to hail a Taxi in Singapore. You can even do it on your phone. Also, you have the option to hire a huge maxi cab so 5 to 7 of you can fit comfortably, which is great for tourists who are travelling as a group and don’t want to deal with huge crowds, especially during peak hours.
4. River Taxi
To really take in all of the sights that Singapore has to offer, the water or river taxi, otherwise known as bumboat, is the way to go.
The bumboat can take you to all the must-visit tourist areas, and more, while also giving you a different view of what Singapore looks like from the ocean.
Travelling in and around Singapore is a piece of cake. All of these different transport options are great for tourists and locals alike. However, for maximum comfort and convenience, taxis and maxi cabs are the ideal choices.
Not only can they take you anywhere you want and offer you a lot of privacy, as well as convenience, both of which is always a huge advantage since you’re not used to the area and not everyone is comfortable travelling in crowded places surrounded by strangers, you can also set up an airport transfer in Singapore to make your trip to Singapore even more convenient.
