Ajay1210's City Tips

  • Kopitiam Food courts are the best way to explore Singapore's food scene and are present at a lot of place across city. These places have variety of food stalls which serve cuisines from across the world
  • MRT ( Metro Trains) is the best way to go around the city and is the most used by Singaporeans, one can get a MRT card and load it with some currency rather than buying tickets at every station.MRT cards can be used on buses as well. Any money remaining in the card can be refunded when one is leaving SG.

    This place is a must go if one is looking for trekking, learn kayaking or just enjoy the nature. There are a lot of walking trails and one of the trails leads to a Tree Top bridge which gives beautiful view of the surroundings.

    Changi beach is very close to the airport. Though there is not much waves or breeze around , the reason I loved this place is to see the airplanes landing especially in the night , the planes are so low that one can feel that they are at touching distance. Reflection of the planes in the water is just beautiful.

    Amazing bird park in Singapore. Have rarely seen so many birds in one place. Best part is you get to feed them and the birds will flock all over you. Lots of good bird shows as well.
