Apples and Oranges. Why don't you ask your teenagers? I'm sure GC will be cheaper.

Which one is best is entirely subjective, but if you asked on the local forums, I think you'll be hard pressed finding anyone telling you that Singapore would be bad.

As for cost, Tet has answered your question. Would be like comparing living costs between Adelaide and Sydney

How long? What are your teens interested in?

My teens quite enjoyed a couple of days in Singapore but were less than impressed with the beaches at Sentosa. My daughter enjoyed Singapore shopping, not so my son! They both enjoyed the night safari at the zoo. When we visited the GC they loved the beaches & theme parks.

Cost wise the GC would win easily I would think. For accommodation there are so many terrific apartments to choose from. Singapore accommodation for families is quite expensive & the food too.
