Changi Airport Singapore
The lion city was my first international visit. I had booked my flight three months in advance hence got a great deal with Indigo. Singapore is overall an expensive country if you are travelling from India and utterly expensive from stay point of view. I landed at Changi Airport at 12:30 PM SST (Singapore Standard Time). The airport itself was marvelous and I had decided to explore it on my last day. Immigration was quick though there was a huge crowd and I cleared it in fifteen minutes which was a surprise as I had to wait for approx. 2 hours in queue to clear immigration at Mumbai airport. Keep your return ticket handy as they may ask you. The first and foremost thing after collecting my luggage was to find a city map and it was abundantly available at all the kiosk. Highly advisable to spend some time studying the map especially their MRT (metro) routes. I then headed towards their MRT station at Changi airport to travel to the hostel I had booked on Outram Road. Other option is of course private taxi. Changi airport also has a shuttle service (ticketing counter is right next to exit) which will drop you right outside your hotel and charge you roughly four-five times more as compared to MRT (MRT Tickets was for SGD 2.50). You just need to select your hotel on their system (yes, they have listed all the hotels/hostels, etc.) and no. of people and swipe your card- it’s a self-service kiosk, though they have a staff who will guide you in case you need. The country is excessively technology dependent so be prepared to do everything on your own. I had to ask for help after I failed to get tickets on my own.
