Insider Tips: Singapore On a Shoestring Budget
Ever wondered if traveling across one of the most expensive countries in the world is possible on a budget?
Yes you can with these insider tips! You will learn where to find cheap food, affordable hotels and special tourist passes to make your stay an enjoyable one and at minimum budget!
Explore with The Singapore Pass
A smart card specially designed for tourists who want to explore the main sights of Singapore by saving time, money and effort, the Singapore Pass is a steal.
You can pick the most relevant package and either have the card shipped to you or collect it at a convenient place on the island itself. It includes free access to some of the top attractions like Universal Studios, Singapore Zoo, Madame Tussauds and SEA Aquarium.
Expect to save from 50 to 70% on the packages. And all you need to do before use is swipe.

Eat at The Hawker Centers
The traditional experience of eating your heart out in any of Singapore’s hawker food places is a memorable one. Not only are these the most authentic in terms of taste and preparation, but also immensely satisfying.
Getting a meal only at S$2-S$6 is not a dream here. Pick from the very popular Maxwell Food Center, Chinatown Complex Food Center or Lau Pa Sat Festival Market.
Tip: Share a table with the locals to have a complete experience.
Shop at Bargain Havens
Orchard Road in Singapore is the Mecca to all those who love shopping. Let’s admit it, even those who don’t prioritise shopping in their travel plan, eventually give in.
We’d suggest the very vibrant and crazy Bugis Street. Here you can expect to spend a S$10 for a comfortable casual wear and as low as S$5 for accessories to go with it.
Not convinced yet? Try Anchorpoint Mall for exciting products in factory outlets, or Lucky Plaza and Far East Plaza for everything affordable (clothes, footwear, perfumes), or the 24 hours open Mustafa Center for gadgets and gold jewelry.
Tip: Be at your bargain best.
