Yes, you heard me right!
It is possible to roam and explore this tiny red dot which is widely known to be one of the most expensive city in the world for FREE!
*Disclaimer: Unless you plan to camp on the beach (East Coast or Sentosa) or sleep at Changi airport, and also not spend any money on our glorious food, walk and do not take any public transport, you can literally not spend a single cent.
After disembarking from Changi Airport, go straight to the taxi stand and find a buddy to hitchhike a ride to the city. Be sincere and polite in asking for a ride. Choose a couple or a single type of person because of space constraints (for obvious reasons)
If this fails, just head to the train or bus station and pay around $2 for a ride into the city. It’ll take you about an hour or so. Our transport system is top notch and easy to navigate. Just try to avoid peak hours (7-9am & 7-9pm)
*Disclaimer: Still assuming you’ll be just roaming around without having to check-in to any accommodation and also travelling with just a light backpack.
