How far will my money go throughout Singapore?

Singapore is a vibrant and exciting destination with plenty to see and do, but it's also known for being one of the more expensive places to visit in Southeast Asia. However, there are still ways to stretch your budget and make the most of your money while exploring all that Singapore has to offer.

Accommodation can be one of the biggest expenses when travelling, but there are options to suit all budgets in Singapore. Hostels and guesthouses can be found for as little as 20-30 SGD per night, while mid-range hotels can start at around 80-100 SGD per night. If you're looking for a luxury experience, there are plenty of high-end hotels and resorts to choose from as well.

One of the best things about Singapore is the food. There are countless hawker centres and street food markets serving up delicious and affordable dishes, with prices starting at around 4-5 SGD per meal. Singapore is also home to some of the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurants, so you can indulge in some high-end dining without breaking the bank.


The Singapore dollar is divided into 100 cents and comes in the following denominations:

Coins - 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents, $1

Banknotes - $2, $5, $10, $50, $100

All of the banknotes feature a portrait of Yusof bin Ishak, the first President of Singapore, on the front, and various images on the back that represent Singapore's history, culture, and achievements.

Things to do while Singapore

Singapore, also known as the “Lion City”, is a vibrant island city-state that offers a unique blend of modernity and tradition. One of the top things to do in Singapore is to visit the iconic Marina Bay Sands, where you can marvel at the stunning cityscape from the observation deck, take a dip in the famous infinity pool, or enjoy a romantic dinner at one of the many rooftop restaurants. Another must-visit is the Gardens by the Bay, which features towering Supertrees, a flower dome, and a cloud forest. You can also catch a light and sound show at the Supertree Grove in the evenings.

For a taste of culture and history, take a stroll through the charming neighbourhoods of Chinatown, Little India, and Kampong Glam, where you can explore the ornate temples, colourful shophouses, and bustling street markets. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample the delicious local cuisine, which is a melting pot of flavours from Chinese, Malay, and Indian cuisines. Some of the signature dishes include Hainanese chicken rice, laksa, and chilli crab.

If you’re looking for some family-friendly fun, head over to Sentosa Island, which boasts a wide range of attractions, including the Universal Studios theme park, S.E.A. Aquarium, and Adventure Cove Waterpark. For a more peaceful experience, escape to the tranquil surroundings of the Botanic Gardens, which is home to a vast collection of tropical plants and flowers, as well as the historic National Orchid Garden. Whether you’re a culture vulture, a foodie, or an adventure-seeker, Singapore has something to offer for everyone.
