TravelTRAVEL

The fastest way to travel around Singapore is the train. All the major locations are near a station. The bus is the most affordable means of transport. Tourist passes enable you to use public transport regularly throughout your stay.
You can also get around in Singapore on a "trishaw" - the local rickshaw. Trishaw Uncle is the only official company to operate in the city.
Lots of taxis are available around the city. You can find them on the street or go to a station. Remember to ask for a receipt from the driver at the end of your journey.
You can also get around Singapore by boat. In the city water taxis go along the river and from Marina Bay to Robertson Quay.
