Cheap Areas to Stay in Singapore

Singapore is not widely known as a budget-friendly country. We often think of Orchard Road, with its towering malls, luxury cars, fancy restaurants and extravagant hotels. But while Singapore prices can be steep compared to her Southeast Asian neighbors', there are some places here that are friendlier to the budget-hunter. Accommodations could easily be the biggest expense for a traveler, but you can save big at some hotels and hostels in the vicinity of Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam. These community and cultural centers are also great places to find good deals on food and souvenirs.

Cheap Hotels in Singapore

There are a number of affordable but highly-rated hotels to choose from. Hotel Re! @ Pearl's Hill, for example, is a cheap hotel and restaurant near the Chinatown Heritage Center, with quirky artistic decorations that capture Singapore's love for the visual arts. Another popular accommodation is Raintr33 Hotel Singapore, which is near Changi Museum and has an outdoor pool. You could also choose a branch of ZEN Rooms that best suits your travel plans. Whichever hotel you choose, remember to inquire about promotional rates, so as not to miss out on any potential savings.

Where to find cheap food in Singapore

For the biggest savings and largest selections, a traveler's best bet is a hawker center. There are quite a few hawker centers in Singapore, where one could try a wide variety of local and international dishes even on a limited budget. Little india and Chinatown also have food shops where you can score tasty, filling meals without breaking the bank. If you plan to cook your own food, you can browse through a wide variety of raw and dried foodstuff at Bugis Street, just across from Bugis Junction. Must-tries include their Hainanese chicken rice, kaya toast served with soft-boiled eggs, and hearty Bak Kut Teh, or pork bone tea.

Cheap Things to do in Singapore

Some Singapore tourist attractions will require you to buy tickets, but you can save more if you buy them directly from their websites or on location, than if you buy them from the concierge at your hotel. Singapore has a rich history. You can learn about it from the National Museum and other museums in Singapore, which charge small entry fees. The Gardens by the Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a budget-friendly must-see. You can purchase an unlimited pass at the park's official site, and see the Cloud Garden, the Flower Dome and the OCBC Skyway. At night, you can spend some time at the man-made supertree grove and enjoy a sound and lights show. For children and the young-at-heart, Sentosa Island has many cheap and even free rides and attractions to offer. If you're an art aficionado, you can get your fill of street art by exploring Kampong Glam on foot.

Cheap Ways to Get Around Singapore

One way to explore Singapore on a shoestring budget is to secure a pass for the double-decker “hop on, hop off” buses, which allow tourists to visit different locations at their own pace, all day. But if you want maximum freedom of movement, it is recommended that you purchase a CEPAS/E-Z Link card. This card can be used on the MRT, LRT and buses, and can be reloaded at any 7-11 branch. You also have the option to take the Singapore Tourist Pass, a special E-Z link card which allows for unlimited transportation for a limited number of days. However, if you plan to do a lot of walking, at Tourist Pass may end up being more expensive than a CEPAS/E-Z Link card.
