SINGAPORE TRAVEL GUIDE

Singapore is one of the most visited cities in Asia. Singapore was founded as a British trading colony in 1819 and has become one of the world’s most prosperous, tax-friendly countries and also boasts the world’s busiest port.

Singapore’s medley of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences make it a vibrant place to visit. Due to its colonial past, English is an official language, as well as Mandarin Chinese, Malay, and Tamil. The tropical climate, tasty food from hawker centers, enormous shopping malls, and vibrant night-life scene make Singapore a great stopover or springboard into the region.

100-120 EUR / 112-134 USD

(Hinweis: Dies ist ein vorgeschlagenes Budget wenn man in einem Hostel übernachten, ab und zu auswärts isst, die meisten Mahlzeiten selbst kocht und die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel nutzt.

Wer jedoch in besseren Unterkünften übernachten oder häufiger auswärts essen möchte, muss mit einem höheren Wert rechnen!)

So kann man Geld sparen

  • Take Advantage of Freebies. While museum admissions are rather expensive in Singapore, most of them offer free admission or special deals on several days or evenings a month. Be sure to check at the counter and inside of the many free attractions magazines for promotion dates.
  • Don't buy bottled water. Unlike in many other countries in Southeast Asia, the tap water in Singapore is safe to drink.
  • Get a CEPAS/EZ-LINK Card. This card can be used on the LRT and MRT trains, along with the excellent public bus system in Singapore. By using an EZ-Link card, card holders only pay for the distance traveled, rather than a flat fare.
  • Eat in Food Halls.It's totally safe to eat street food in Singapore. In fact, the city is blessed with some of the best food courts and hawker stalls in the world - they are a part of daily life for the locals.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM SINGAPORE?

Singapore is a vibrant and modern city state that has a lot to offer. It’s a great gateway to visiting other places around Asia, such as Malaysia or Indonesia. Singapore experiences hot and humid weather all year round. The best time to visit Singapore is between February and April.

Despite its relatively small size, you’ll never run out of things to do in Singapore. The bustling city center offers all the perks of a metropolis, while the green outskirts and nearby islands are ideal for a refreshing getaway. There are also plenty of instagrammable places in Singapore to fill your social media feed!

TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR SINGAPORE

Ich bin immer wieder schockiert, wie viele Touristen keine Reiseversicherung abschließen. Eine Reiseversicherung gehört für mich zur Grundreisevorbereitung, genauso wie mein Flugticket oder eine Hotelbuchung.

Obwohl Taiwan relativ sicher ist, kann es immer zu unerwarteten Naturkatastrophen kommen und ich habe auch schon oft erlebt, wie Menschen Laptops und Telefone aus erster Hand gestohlen wurden.

Eine angemessene Versicherungsdeckung ist daher unbedingt zu empfehlen. Eine Reiseversicherung beinhaltet nicht nur medizinische Versorgungen (wenn man krank wird oder sich den Fuß bricht, zum Beispiel), sondern eine Reiseversicherung schützt auch dann, wenn einem zum Beispiel die Kamera gestohlen wird, der Flug gestrichen wird oder man durch eine Naturkatastrophe irgendwo fest sitzt.

Kurz gesagt, eine Reiseversicherung schützt gegen alle möglichen Szenarien, die beim Reisen auftreten können - und kann sogar dein Leben retten!
