For first timers with very little knowledge of Singapore, where are the recommended places to see? Where to get cheap local food? Is it easy to get around Singapore? Any other tips which one should take note?
For starters, I think one great way to save money is to have your meals in the ubiquitous coffee shops (that sell food and drinks, not weed) or hawker centres where a meal can cost just SGD$3.20, drink included (I'm thinking $2.50 plate of chicken and 70c cup of coffee). Local desserts often don't go higher than $2 also.
Alcohol prices in bars tend to go up. It's not uncommon to pay S$16 now for a pint of Tiger on Clarke Quay. But is there a limit? Would you pay any price for your booze, or do you think the bars and clubs are overdoing it?
