Private Singapore Arrival Transfer
From the outside, Singapore is a unique blend of temples, skyscrapers, luxury condos, colourfully dated shopfronts, coastal promenades and bits of jungle thrown in between.
From the inside, it’s a country constantly on the move. Every time you return you’ll notice subtle differences. New buildings, new systems, new food fads, new lingo; you never know what it’ll be. Yet, while the city may innovate and reinvent itself considerably, it’s always the ideal choice for food, shopping and a city break.
Everywhere you go, the smell of spices and fried foods from a multitude of Asian countries fills the air causing you to salivate, sit down and appease your taste buds constantly.

If you compare the prices in Australia with those in Singapore, the overall costs in Singapore can be both substantially higher or considerably lower depending on the item. Here are some examples of pricing difference for a better perspective:
In Australia we'd usually pay about $80 for a three-course meal for 2 people whereas in Singapore you'd be looking at approximately $60 for similar. However, meals in hawker centres (Singapore's open air food courts) are much cheaper.
Draught beer is higher in price. It would usually be in the region of $7 in Australia, whereas Singapore prices are closer to $10.
For coffee we'd expect to pay in the region of $4 and in Singapore you'd be more likely to pay around $5, so that's more expensive too.
Generally, public transportation and taxi services are cheaper than back home but fuel costs are significantly higher.
General groceries like beef, milk and cheese in Singapore will seem incredibly overpriced compared to Australia.
The currency used in Singapore is the Singapore Dollar (SGD). While the value does change, it's usually within a 10-15% difference of the Australian dollar.
