This week, Sue Gillespie has reached out to the Starts at 60 community looking for some travel advice…

She wrote, “We are stopping in Singapore for 4 days in April before returning to Australia. Any recommendations on where to stay would be appreciated.We would like to be close to public transport and don’t want to pay the earth but we do want a comfortable hotel!” 

Singapore is fabulous for public transport thanks to the great rail system – but on your travels have you stayed anywhere that has had the conveniences that Sue is looking for?

  1. Holiday Inn Express, Clarke Quay. Affordable, new, well located, near river, eateries, Chinatown and Metro to Marina Bay Sands, Bayside Gardens ( spectacular), huge Sky wheel, museums. Breakfast included. We were there in July.

  2. Don’t know about Accom. make sure you go to the Bird Park and the Night Safari at the zoo . When going to the Night Safari go by taxi and ask the driver to meet you afterwards Atan allocated spot . works well . Very popular but a Lovely experience . I think you can get a package deal for the Zoo , Bird Park and Orchid gardens .

  3. Public transport is brilliant but if you go on the hop on hop off buses for the day, you will soon get your bearings. We stayed inChinatown, but rooms are very small. We upgraded to a family room for just the two of us. Much better.

  4. Last time I went through Singapore they had a last minute hotel desk in the arrivals area. Rooms were discounted and we got the Hilton….sorry can’t remember how much it was but I think it was 50% discount.

  5. Peninsula Hotel. Would not waste money on Night Zoo s major rip off so dimly lit we barely saw an animal

  6. There are many reasonable hotels in Singapore. We stayed at the Mandarin on Orchard Street close to all the eminities and a free bus service to Sentosa Island.

  7. Raffles International opposite “The Raffles Hotel”. Sentosa Island is a dead loss and so is the accommodation. Rooms too small and old. Just remember you only get what you pay for. Go to The Raffles Hotel and have a Singapore Sling in the beer garden, really lovely
