GETTING AROUND AS A SOLO FEMALE TRAVELER IN SINGAPORE
Going on a Solo Trip, especially as a female traveler can be overwhelming. I’ve been on so many Solo Travels that you would think I got used by now. But when I decided to book my longest solo trip ever, I had moments when I doubted I can do it. I am sure this happened to a lot of people before me, but when it happens to you it’s completely different.
I booked my trip to Singapore at the same time as my trip to Bali. I was in a period of my life when I no longer knew which road to take. But I was so happy with my experience in Singapore with public transportation. It was so easy going around just by bus that I did not take any other means of transportation.
here is my experience as a Solo Female Traveler IN getting around in singapore.
GETTING AROUND AS A SOLO FEMALE
With just 50 Km/31 miles wide and 27Km/17 miles long, Singapore has remarkable agitated traffic, especially at peak hours. Nevertheless, if you want to visit some must-see neighborhoods like Little India, Bugis, Chinatown, Marina Bay, the Financial District, and Sentosa Island, getting around in Singapore is very easy.
Here is how you can get around if you Travel Solo for the first time to Singapore:
- Public Transportation: The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is a very easy and affordable way to get around Singapore. The price of tickets depends on where you are going and generally runs around SGD 4 (3€/USD). You can pay directly with your credit card on the bus. No need to run and buy a ticket and miss your bus. But, if you are planning to explore as much of the city as possible, the Singapore Tourist Pass is a great option.
- Just like in Bali, use the Go-Jek or Grab app to book a taxi. with cheaper prices than a traditional taxi. This is the Asian version of Uber, which is not allowed in Singapore. Regular taxi charge peak rates after 6 p.m.
