Four hours in Singapore

Hi

I have four hours to do something with in Singapore between 2:00pm and 6:00pm. Has anyone suggestions, other than a City Tour?

:)

Hello,

Make a booking to have High Tea in the Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel

Take a bumboat ride on the River

Head to Gardens by the Bay

go to Marina Bay Sands and head up to the Skypark

Chinatown: Have a Foot Reflexology session followed by a meal in a Hawker Centre like Maxwell Road Food Centre

Hi Benita W,

How about remaining airside at the airport? There are plenty to do there - see a movie, go for a massage and foot reflexology, visit the themed gardens, go for a swim, etc, etc.

Imo, it will be very hot then. You may find exploring the city under the hot sun very unpleasant. Of course, there are covered and air conditioned walkways, but you will not be able to see much saves for shops and such.

An alternative is to visit Gardens By the Bay. Visit the conservatories to stay cool in air-conditioned comfort.

My 2c.

Whatever you decide, enjoy !

Hello, you may take a taxi to visit the Changi chapel museum nearby. You may also take mrt to visit Tampines an suburban area to see where singaporeans live.

2pm landing means you should be out of the airport in 30mins with no luggage, your next flight gate will open about 1hr ahead fo take off so you only have about 2and 1/2 hrs. Going to the city or similar will eat another hour by taxi (30mins each way to be safe) out of that leaving 90mins at the attraction. So you really need to stay fairly close...Changi Museum works, East Coast for food would also work. An extreme trip might be a taxi to the Peranakan museum a zip round that and back out....but that would be tighter than I would like on an international flight, as it assumes there's a taxi where you want it when you want.

To be fair that amount of time is easy to pass in the airport itself, visit the butterfly garden, plus the others - eat something and have a wander round the shops and your gate will probably be open. For me its a bit short of a connection time to do much.

All these times assume that you are on full service airlines and able to check through. If you are flying most point to point carriers you have to go through immigration, get bags, deal with them etc and thats yet more time out.

if u want to stretch your leg without going too far head to Changi City Point.. Only one mrt stop away from airport. There are two large food courts there, some restaurants and shopping.

City tour will not work for your case, you need at least 5 hours in transit for this freebie.
