Getting around Singapore

The benefit of traveling around Singapore is its small size makes it rather easy to get around. Much of the city is very accessible by foot and it is a great way to see the sights.

To travel further around Singapore you cant go past their very efficient train system, the MRT or Mass Rapid Transit.

Much of the MRT is under ground and the stations are probably the cleanest train stations in the world. As with the rest of Singapore the majority of the signage is in English and the staff are helpful to tourists.

Paying for travel on Singapore's bus and train systems is via a contact less smart cart card called "EZ-Card". When getting on a bus or arriving at a station you swipe your card past the reader and again when you get off, the distance you have traveled is then deducted from your card.   

The EZ-Card has become almost a replacement for small change in Singapore with many retailers like 7-11 and McDonalds also adopting the readers. EZ-Cards are purchased with a nominal credit value already on them and can be topped up when needed. If you only intend to make only one or two trips on the MRT or bus system you can buy a standard ticket which is valid for a trip on the day of purchase, there is also a $1 refundable deposit on the standard ticket, it operates the same way as the EZ-Card.

Other transport options in Singapore include taxi's which can be a lot more expensive than the MRT or bus system and the tourist cable car from Sentosa Island to Mount Faber.
