The Zoo, The Night Safari and the Bird Park (to a lesser extent)is best reached by taxi. Just about everything else is walking distance or easily reached by MRT from your hotel.

Taxis are relatively cheap, moreso if there is more than one of you to split the cost. the highest daytime fare you could possibly run up taking a taxi from the city to the furthest point in the country you may want to go (the Zoo) would be a little more than S$20.

We are planning to have 3 days in Singapore in Feb 2012, and then maybe 8 days in Langkawi. Can you help with the right areas to stay in both places and what kind of weather should we expect. I am told the Chinese new year starts on Feb 23rd and goes on for 15 days, which will be the time we arrive. Does this mean the hotel prices rise at this time, and will it affect where we stay.

Chinese New year will be 23rd Jan 2012 so you it will not affect your stay. Weather is pretty much the same year round with Dec/Jan tending to be wetter. Expect high humidity and day time temps around 30 degrees and night time 24 degrees.

Web used the MRT and buses a lot to get a lot of the places we wanted to.

Taxis for the Universal and when we wanted to get to Little India quickly.

Feb is not high season. What is your budget?

Langkawi is in Malaysia. U have to repost at Malaysia forum. 8 days is kind of long to stay in a quiet island. Perhaps u may want to mix it with Penang.
