English is the official language in Singapore though Malay is the national language. Therefore, visitors do not worry about not being able to get around in the bustling city. The few attractions in Singapore are the shopping malls in Orchard area, the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, two integrated resort at Sentosa and Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay as well as Universal Studios Singapore® at Sentosa. The Esplanade Theatre is another icon building in Singapore, just like the Opera House in Sydney. The theatre is home to the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and is visited regularly by local bands and touring artists.
With recent appreciation of Singapore currency and inflation phenomenon in Asia, travelling budget going to Singapore is higher than before. However these do not stop visitors from visiting Singapore because of its Luxury brands shopping, quality local food like chilli crab, high standard and worth-visiting attractions, and wide range of hotel choices from Luxury hotels to backpacking hostels.
Travelling in Singapore is very convenient and easy as almost all of the interesting places and attractions are connected by train and buses. The train frequency has been improved to around 5 minute during off peak hour and 2 minute during peak hour. Bus frequency has also been improved and the IRIS system from SBS enables passengers to check the estimated arrival time of your next bus at your bus stop. Many visitors also take the opportunity to visit neighbouring country Malaysia whenever there is holiday. There are few buses offering such services to Malaysia, like KKKL Express, Transtar Express, Delima Express, Golden Coach Express etc. Travellers can go to Beach Road to board the bus. Prior booking is a must during a holiday season period and weekend to avoid disappointment.
