Budget Travel: Inexpensive Activities in Singapore
Traveling in general sounds like an expensive thing to do or have as a hobby. But what makes traveling more fun is when you can find things to try or destinations to go to while still staying within your tight budget. Singapore, in particular, has a reputation for being an expensive tourist spot. Not many people know you can still do a lot of activities and visit locations that are cheap, or sometimes free, that can also live up to the Singapore tourism hype. Visa Express http://www.singapore-visa.net collects the list of 10 destinations you need to include in your Singapore tour.
Who wouldn’t love a good trip down history lane? For history lovers, national museum is fortunately priced at $10 which will allow you to stroll around the large museum that houses eleven national treasures. If you easily get lost, don’t worry; they have tour guides you can ask for a quick history lesson or directions and they speak Japanese, English, and Mandarin.
Sisters Island Marine Park
You can head down to Marine Park and go snorkeling, for free! When you opt to snorkel you will see the spectacular biodiversity in the waters of Sister Islands. And the best part about it? If you’re lucky, you get to see wild dolphins!
Singapore Botanic Gardens
Another free location for travellers on a budget is Singapore Botanic Gardens, where you can see the rainforest, healing gardens, and three breathtaking lakes.
Fond of finely made architecture? Go and see Hawker Centre that has a Victorian-inspired structure, which is pretty far from the typical tall buildings you see in the city. You get live bands, Chili Crab and Chicken Satay! Isn’t that a great deal?
Changi Point Boardwalk
If you are more of a sit-down and nature person, watch the sun go down along the shores in Changi Point Boardwalk. Take a good photo and share with your friends the relaxing view you saw.
A concert is always a go-to activity for a fun night out. Good news! In Esplanade Concert is free and you can see all kinds of performances.
Like a good art? Haji Lane is perfect! They have a big mural that was painted by their creative locals. While you’re there, try shopping a few things to bring home!
If you are into sports, East Coast has the vibe that will set your athletic mood on. It is always nice to play outside where the trees are while feeling some fresh air.
Little India Heritage Trail
Buy something to take home and relive your Singapore experience. Little India is the best place to buy these things. If you get tired looking around, they have good food places to try.
Esplanade Roof Garden
Remember Esplanade gives free a concert? Well, they also have a nice view at night for a great picnic dinner –and of course, for free!
