Itinerary for Singapore 4d/3n


I am following TA for days now and I am still not confident about our trip in Singapore. My boyfriend and I will be in SG in January 25 - 28 2012 for the first time and we even don't know where to go or what will be our itinerary. I do have plans but I don't know if it is enough.

Day 1 - arrival at the airport by 1030am - hotel transfer - rest at the hotel - (afternoon to evening) Singapore Zoo and Night Safari - dinner (don't know where to eat) - hotel

Day 2 - breakfast - (8:30 am) city tour (provided by our hotel package) - lunch - Sentosa island (underwater things) - dinner (still don't know where to it) - hotel

Day 3 - breakfast - USS - lunch - Snow City - dinner

Day 4 - breakfast - free time (shopping in Orchard) - hotel - airport


1. do we really need to spend 1 whole day in USS?

2. Any suggestions for a cheap/ tight budget dinner?

3. Aside from Orchard road, do they have any other places for shopping, lesser cost, of course.

4. Can we just ride the MRT/bus for all the places that we will visit? Taxi can be so expensive.

5. our pocket money is a nearly SGD 600. Is it enough for the places that we will visit including meals and shopping?

Thank you for responding. This will surely help us.

I am one (of several members here) who will not advocate doing the Zoo and the Night Safari on the same day. Yes, you save on the transport costs once (ie. taxi fare of about S$30) but it would not be doing justice to these 2 world-class attractions.

The Zoo needs at least 6 hours to fully experience its many shows, feeding times, and just to walk leisurely from one animal enclosure to the next (and there are many enclosures !!). And often you will want to linger at an enclosure to admire the specific animal(s). Rushing from one enclosure to another is not ideal. And it is hot and humid in Singapore too.

At the end of 6 hours, you will be "zoo'ed out" and tired - and then you go to the Night Safari for another 4 hrs. That is 10 hours in all of animal spotting; I will be so jaded.

I would suggest that since you have only 4 days, you choose either the Zoo (my preference) or the Night Safari.

Please go for many other different experiences in Singapore. You will have a more enjoyable time.
