# Hotels: Singapore is a costly country when it comes to accommodation. If you are a budget traveler, Air BnB is the one of the option in Singapore but not the best as many are shared rooms or far from the city. So choose accordingly. For hotels, Little India is the best area to stay for 2 reasons: 1. Food will never be a problem. Tekka Center which is like a mini food mall where you get EVERYTHING! From Chinese, Thai,Malai, and INDIAN at very cheap proce with good taste. 2. Affordability.Hotels here are much cheaper and good. Geylang Street is so-called red light street of Singapore with many Lanes. So just check for that while selecting a hotel. In Singapore as a Tourist you will be leaving the hotel in the morning and coming back directly in the night so do not spend a lot on a hotel.# Singapore tourist pass: Transport is very easy in Singapore. Just download map in mobile and you are go to go. Buy simple singapore tourist pass ( not Singapore Tourist Pass Plus). It costs $20 ( SGD 20) with $10 deposit which will be refunded once you return the card.You get access to unlimited travel on buses, MRT, LRT in Singapore. They will try to force you to buy Singapore tourist pass plus. Do not buy. It just comes with 3 days validity ( same as regular pass) but with card expiry being 5 years means you can keep the card with you and can use for next 5 years and costs $38.# Attraction Tickets: This one thing you can buy at arrival counter without worrying. They have some good combos which you can choose from. Or you can use mobile app called "KLOOK" to book tickets. Just make sure to buy open date ticket as some tickets are fixed date which means you have to use that ticket on that same day only. Singapore weather is funny so don't keep any fixed itinerary. # Sim Card: Check for multiple options as there are many companies giving sim cards for $20 with 20 GB of data pack. So do check 4-5 options before buying.3. Tourist Spots#UNIVERSAL STUDIOS: Obviously one of the MUST VISIT. Start early in the morning and reach by at least 11am. It opens at 10am. Later on it will get crowded and there is long queue for the rides. Keep one whole day for Universal Studios.
