Today, we will discuss some of the essential tips that you should be aware of if you are planning on visiting Singapore and the Wings of Time in Sentosa for the first time.

Dress Appropriately

Singapore is a tropical country, which means that it is hot almost all year round. The humidity is pretty high, too, which means that you will sweat a lot, especially if you are not used to the hot and humid type of weather.

Pack a couple of comfortable clothes including some shorts, a couple of pairs of soft and smooth jeans, some sleeveless tops, and the likes. Make sure that you are a hundred per cent comfortable with what you will be wearing to avoid looking a like a hot mess and feeling all hot during the trip.

It can be a Bit Expensive

Singapore is one of the most expensive cities globally. It is a little bit more expensive compared to its neighbouring countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and more.

Make sure to bring extra cash and see to it that you would not be short when it comes to the budget. Look for tour package prices and restaurant food prices, so you’ll know what to expect.

Take Advantage of the Public Transportation System

Public transport is the easiest way to get around Singapore. The moment you arrive, make sure to get an EZ-link card, as you can use this for getting on buses and subways. All you need to do is load it up, tap it as soon as you get on and before you get off and you are good to go.

There are also plenty of taxis around, and if you want, you can also use ride-sharing apps like Grab and Uber. Talk to a couple of people that have visited the country and ask for useful tips from them.
