Singapore dollars, but there are money changers in the area. No idea how good/bad their rates are

SGD$. Limited vendors will accept US$ but don’t expect it and expect to pay more if you use US$. Just get SGD$ cash from the ATM’s at the airport. Most places take cards though.

Sorry I meant Singapore dollar not Malaysian. So you can exchange US dollars to Singapore dollars at many of the exchange places. Don’t exchange at the airport they don’t offer good rates.

Best to have SG dollars when you are in Singapore. I didn't see anyone paying with USD anywhere.
