SMRT Bus

SMRT Buses are a great way to get around in Singapore and there are currently 47 services in operation. There's a special service (926) to the Singapore Zoological Garden and others include Yishun, Woodlands, Bukit Panjang, Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Sembawang and the upcoming Simpang New Town.

Subways/MRT

Singapore's commuter train is fast and cheap and can easily transport you from one corner of the island to the other. Most of Singapore's attractions are within a short walk of one of 90 MRT stations in the network, plus suburban stations are integrated with the bus system so it's always easy to reach any attraction by public transport.

SMRT Bus at night

Night-time in Singapore offers fewer buses, but you can still get the 7 Night-Rider services. Look for the numbers NR1, NR2, NR3, NR5, NR6, NR7 and NR8 all over the city and surrounds. These buses are all air-conditioned and very safe.

Taxi

Metered taxis are easily flagged all over Singapore and are fairy cheap compared to cabs in other developed cities (less than S$10 per ride). When it's raining during rush hour, you might have a problem, but generally taxis can be flagged at any time of the day along public roads outside the Central Business District.

Singapore Botanic Gardens, 1 Cluny Road

Get to this green space early to watch the tai chi exponents or have a jog, and stay for a picnic. This national park is open every day and offers stunning lakes, various animals, flowers and plants, plus one of the region's first rubber tree orchards and an orchid garden.

Marina Bay /Sands SkyPark, Bayfront Avenue

You can't miss the triple-towered Marina Bay Sands, visible from everywhere in Singapore and perched on its own offshore island. The observation deck in the SkyPark (S$20) is well worth a look and the inside boasts an impressive shopping mall with hundreds of stores, restaurants and a theatre.

Singapore Zoo 80, Mandai Lake Road

A great day out for kids and adults alike is a trip to the world-famous Singapore Zoo. Spanning 220 acres, this free-ranging zoo lets you get up close and personal with a huge variety of animals, and boasts the world's largest captive orangutan group. Go at night for a fun experience.

Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, 177 Hindhede Drive

Just 12km away from the city's skyscrapers, this protected rainforest is a cool respite from the scorching sun and offers families plenty of activities, like hiking and bike trails. Take some insect repellent and get back to nature as you look for squirrels and long tail macaques.

DAY 1: Afternoon to Sunset on Sentosa

Take a cool cable car ride from Mount Faber to Sentosa and head to the Dolphin Lagoon. Watch the pink dolphins do their tricks and then get deep at Underwater World, an 80-metre tunnel designed to show you over 2500 sea creatures. Take in the Images of Singapore and then head to the Musical Fountain for a night-time state-of-the-art laser, fire and water jet display. Amazing.

DAY 3: Explore Malay Heritage

Uncover the rich cultural heritage of the Malays in a typical Malay ethnic area. A private guide can tell you exciting stories about the region during World War II, but make sure you're heading towards the intriguing Changi Chapel and Museum for a visit. Drive through chilled Changi Village for a taste of a more subdued Singapore and head to the township of Tampines New Town for a lovely dinner.

DAY 2: Day trip to Malacca

Malaysia's most historical city has seen the rise and fall of major empires, all of which have influenced the region. Malacca's medieval charm will mesmerise and its beautiful buildings and canal make for good photo opportunities. Climb St Paul's Hill and visit Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia. Dine by the water in one of the cute International restaurants.

DAY 4: Chinatown and Clarke Quay

Singapore's Chinatown is a sprawling myriad of colour and charm, and you can pick up anything from a hologram mobile phone case to a pair of Chinese slippers or a dragon puppet. Explore and have lunch in one of the street-side restaurants (try the duck) and then head on to Clarke Quay where boutique market stalls are often on show for a classier shopping opportunity. Have a cool beer in one of the waterfront bars.
