Best Singapore Prepaid SIM Card for Travellers in 2019

Who can live and travel without data SIM card? I CAN’T.

SIM card is my second priority when I arrive in a new country, after local currency. Having a local SIM card with data gives me confidence and assurance that I can survive in a new country even if I don’t speak the language.

When my family and friends visit me in Singapore, they’re always asking me to help them buy SIM cards. Choosing the best SIM card in Singapore is both easy and hard!

Easy because there are only 3 major phone operators in Singapore, namely Singtel, M1 and StarHub. It’s hard because every operator offers so many different SIM cards with different features and validity, it’s so hard to choose what’s the most suitable card for you.

I’ve been there, I’ve had my share of headache when choosing a SIM card. In this post, I’ll do comparison and breakdown of each SIM card, then at the end, I’ll provide you with my recommendations based on the length of your stay! Let’s dive in! (more…)

53 Things to Do in Changi Airport, Singapore

If you are that last-minute guy/gal who always arrive at the airport just in time before the check-in counter closes, I recommend that you arrive much earlier if you’re flying out from Changi Airport. I’ll tell you why.

There are SO many things to do in Changi Airport! And don’t worry if you’re on a tight budget, the most awesome places are free anyway. No wonder it’s the world’s best airport according to Skytrax in 2019!

Because I’m an ambitious traveller, I did what I should do. I spent a lot of time at the airport, trying to compile an enormous list of things to do in Changi Airport. The list is divided into 5 main categories according to their location: Jewel, Terminal 1, Terminal 2, Terminal 3 and Terminal 4.

The list includes FREE things to do as well as things that require money. It also includes both Transit Area (i.e. inside departure gate where only flying passengers are allowed to enter) and Public Area (i.e. area where everyone can access, regardless whether they’re flying or not). (more…)

30 Things To Do in Sentosa Island, Singapore

What’s there to do in Sentosa? Isn’t it just a small island?

Yes, it is. In fact, the island is just slightly under 5 square kilometers. If you’re a first-time visitor to Singapore, I couldn’t recommend visiting Sentosa highly enough. If have visited Sentosa before, well, it’s so hard to tell your friends you’ve seen it all because the island keeps adding new things all the time, it’s so annoying.

Is Sentosa worth visiting? Yes. Well, I’m obviously biased. I visited Sentosa the first time about 17 years ago and fell in love with it. To this day, I’m still loving it. They say love is blind and biased.

Getting Around Singapore – An Ultimate Guide

The transportation system in Singapore is one of the best in Southeast Asia in my opinion.

Why is it so? Firstly, it’s extensive. Almost all parts of Singapore can be accessed by public transportation. Secondly, it can be easily understood. The rules, routes, fares, schedules are set in stone, so you don’t need to worry about being scammed MOST of the time (I’m going to mention about situations where you could be ripped off in the Taxi section, though).

This article will show you EVERYTHING you need to know about how to travel with the various transportation modes in Singapore, including my personal tips.

A Guide to Zipping and Jumping at Mega Adventure Park Sentosa, Singapore

So, you’ve had enough of boring activities like swimming on Sentosa’s beach? Enter Mega Adventure Park.

Travelling should awake all your senses, pump your adrenaline and give you a memorable experience to remember for a long time, shouldn’t it? If you have the same view about travelling as me, then push all of your “Sentosa-must-do-things” to the bottom of your list and head to Mega Adventure Park first thing when you arrive at Sentosa.

As a long-time (over a decade) resident of Singapore, MegaZip has been on my radar for so many years. I felt a rush of adrenaline every time I saw people zipping past above me at Siloso Beach. I yearned to try it but the little voice in my head reminded me about that time I took 30 mins to calm myself before sliding down a terribly high water slide at Bali’s Waterboom.

After years of grueling arguments between my heart and my brain, the former eventually won. I took the brave steps to Sentosa last month to prove if my heart made the right decision. (more…)
