How about from Cox and Kings? I could be mistaken but I don't think TC has any group tours to SE Asia.

I would suggest you travel on your own without a tour. I find that more relaxing than the rushed up version of tours. Plus you get to follow your own itinerary and spend some leisure time than behave like a clock. Just my opinion. I am travelling to Singapore roughly the same and it doesn't take much time or effort to get things together.

Singapore is a compact country/city to explore. You can just take it by your own, check out Singapore Tourism Official website. Transportation in Singapore is very efficient and well connected too.

I must agree. Just do some research on what attractions you'd be interested in then make your own itinerary. Singapore is one of the easiest places to move in, transportation is very efficient and convenient. If it's not too hot, I prefer to walk and take in all the sights.

Completely agree with rishi.Design your own package.For hotels,I would suggest you to consider little india area.Area is not hot-shot but you would get indian food very easily there.I would recommend booking park royal on kitchner road.Location is best-Adjoining MRT,mustafa centre for shopping and currency conversion is just hands apart,lots of Indian food outlets-chillas,big bite,sagar ratna.Book this hotel on expedia/booking.com for best deals.

I dont know about your budget,if u find rates in excess of your budget,consider aqueen hotel lavender,just 2 bus stops away from park royal.Rooms are amazing,very neat and clean-a complete value 4 money.

Spend one day in universal studios.Just go at the ticketing counter and dont forget to bring your MASTERCARD with you.USS is offering 20% discount on MASTERCARD.

Spend another day in sentosa...same procedure,but no discount this time.

One day in ZOO for sure.

Dont bother to take duck tours.In my openion,its just waste of money.I recommend going to top of marina bay sands instead of singapore eye.I hate waiting in ques.

spend one day for shopping at orchard road/bugis/mustafa.

Rest see clark quey,china town etc

Dont waste your money in taxis,just follow MRT,its cheap and easy.Dhobi gaut MRT is close to little india by MRT/BUS.You can go anywhere form dhobi gaut.

hope this helps

''can anyone help us out with the budget''

If you allow $100sg a day per person that should cover almost everything you need (not accommodation), allowing for days when you spend much less then other days.

$20 p.p.p.d. should cover food/soft drinks costs, (at Hawkers/Food-courts), booze is NOT cheap a small beer at a Hawker Centre-7/11 cost about $4.00. Wine/spirits you can forget if you're on a ''budget''.

Transportation $10 p.p.p.d. should be more than enough.

As suggested by ''Mankster'' entrance fees are on the individual webs.

Good luck.Alan.
