Review Itinerary

We, a couple are a little over a fortnight away from our first trip to Singapore - infact our first International trip.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback for my itinerary n my questions. I've read so much on Trip Advisor & Trip Advisor Forums.

Here is the draft Itinerary :

Day 1 – Arrival at Changi Airport at noon > hotel checkin

Q1 : For booking hotel, which are the trusted websites ?? (Hotels.com, Booking.com .....)

At Evening :

Marina Bay - Evening light shows, Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Skywalk n GBTB

Q2 : which one to go first - GBTB or Singapore Flyer ? We also want to enjoy the light shows at GBTB n Marina Bay.

Q3 : Can we revisit GBTB twice a day with same ticket ? As we want to enjoy both light shows.

Q4 . In Marina Bay , are there any vegetarian restaurants ?

Day 2

Universal Studio & SEA Aquarium

Q4 : Which one to visit first ?

Day 3

Sentosa Island

Day 4

Mall visits at Orchard Road

Evening : Clarke quay

# Any other places can be included in Day 4 ??

Day 5

Thank you in advance.

Since you are travelling between 1-2pm, I think the MRT is possible. You have to make 3 connections though. The first at Tanah Merah is trivial - simply cross over the platform.

Take the train heading towards Tuas Link.

Alight at Bugis and walk to the Downtown Line.

Take the train heading towards Bt Panjang.

Alight at Little India. Walk to the Northeast Line.

Take the train heading towards Punggol and alight at Farrer Park.

I have read posts of TA regarding Klook. It was a mixed one - both positive n negative. Let me know your suggestions whether to use klook to book attraction tickets or not.

You can weigh the cost savings against the risks, It will be quite expensive if you book the tickets and then can't use them due to circumstances that one can't foresee. If you have access to OTP via your mobile number registered with your Indian bank, you can conceivably buy on the day itself through the app but some members posted they had trouble receiving the OTP.

You just need to show your original passport for registration and activation. For the duration of your trip, just get a S$15 tourist SIM from either SingTel or M1.
