Let's face it, until Bayfront station opens in 2012, the MRT is pretty useless if you're staying at Marina Bay Sands.
I plan to visit Sentosa, Jurong BirdPark, and Singapore Zoo (potentially on different days), as well as the Marina Bay sights, and of course Orchard Road and hopefully the Southern Ridges, and Clarke Quay.
Some of these destinations do not even have a MRT station close by, such as Jurong East being nowhere near the Birdpark and requiring a further bus trip.
From MBS, I plan to take a taxi to virtually all of these destinations, especially the zoo and birdpark.
I know there is a surcharge from MBS, but can anyone give a rough estimate of how much it would cost to get to Jurong Bird Park, and Singapore Zoo?
I will use the MRT to Harbourfront (and Clarke Quay on the way back), but from MBS which MRT station is best to get on the purple line to Harbourfront?
