Go slow in a trishaw

You could always go around Singapore on foot, but if you want more mobility along with some historical value, you can ride a trishaw.

A trishaw is a pedal-run three-wheeled vehicle that became popular after World War II when Singapore lacked motorised transports. You can still find trishaws, which ply tourist routes in the city.

Tour around on a bus

Moving up in size, buses ply several routes around the city, making the bus system the most economical transport option. With the double-decked buses available, you can also enjoy scenic views of the city.

To ride a bus, you need to have a Singapore Tourist Pass or EZ-Link card. In the absence of both cards, you can pay with the exact amount.

Reach remote destinations in a taxi

For more precise travel from point-to-point in Singapore, you can take a taxi. Taxis make for perfect rides when you want to reach hole-in-the-wall destinations. You can easily hail a taxi from any point in Singapore, and costs will be determined by a meter.

Additional surcharges may increase your fare, however, depending on the time, place, and company of the taxi you get.

Barrel through the city on a train

Finally, for the fastest and best way around the city, you can ride the Mass Rapid Transit system. To ride the MRT, you can buy single-ride tickets, but you can also use the Singapore Tourist Pass or EZ-Link card.

With the cards, you can gain unlimited travel for one, two, or three days for S$10, S$16, and S$20, respectively. Trains begin to run the routes at 5:30 in the morning until midnight.

With this, you can explore Singapore, and even its attraction-filled Sentosa Island, using the transport systems above. Pick what you want to try out and enjoy the Garden City.
