Should I exchange money before I travel to Singapore?

It’s a smart move to exchange money before travelling to Singapore. Having some Singapore dollars on hand right when you arrive means you can cover initial expenses like transport from the airport and your first few meals without a hitch.

What is the best currency to bring to Singapore?

The Singapore dollar is the official currency and the way to go. You might come across some places that accept major foreign currencies, but using SGD is generally more convenient and cost-effective.

You can buy your Singapore dollar online today with Manor FX.

Can I use the Singapore dollar in Brunei?

Yes, you can use the Singapore dollar in Brunei! The Singapore and Brunei dollar are interchangeable at a one-to-one exchange rate. 

This unique arrangement means you can use Singapore dollars in Brunei just like you would use Brunei dollars and vice versa. 

Can I use my bank card in Singapore?

Yes, you can use your bank card in Singapore, but having a mix of cash and card is wise. Smaller establishments and hawker centres prefer cash. Major shopping centres and restaurants readily accept cards.

Tip: Always let your bank know you’ll be travelling to avoid card issues abroad.

Should I use cash in Singapore?

While Singapore is moving towards being a cashless society, cash still comes in handy for smaller transactions. ATMs are widespread, so withdrawing cash is easy if you need it.

Keeping a mix of cash and card payments is your best bet in Singapore. Use cash for small purchases and save the card for larger expenses. 

Manor FX can convert your excess SGD back to pounds sterling if you end up with leftover Singapore dollars after your trip.

Is it better to use cash or credit card in Singapore?

In Singapore, credit and debit cards are widely accepted in most shops, restaurants, and attractions. Yet, having cash for smaller purchases and places that don’t accept cards is a good idea.

How much cash should I take to Singapore?

Exploring Singapore doesn’t have to break the bank, whether you’re backpacking, enjoying the comforts of a mid-range adventure, or splurging on a luxury getaway. Here’s how you can make the most of your visit to this vibrant city-state, no matter your budget.

Backpacking Singapore budgets

Around 90 SGD, £52 a day, will cover a hostel stay, eating at budget-friendly hawker stalls, using public transport, and sticking mainly to free activities like walking tours.

Mid-range budget

With 175 SGD a day, around £100, you can enjoy a private hostel room or an Airbnb, dine out for every meal at budget-friendly spots, enjoy a few drinks, occasionally hop in a taxi, and sprinkle in some paid attractions like the zoo or the botanic gardens.

Luxury budget: 

Starting at 300 SGD a day, around £164, you can indulge in dining out for every meal, zip around in taxis, stay in upscale hotels, and pick any tours and activities that catch your eye. But remember, the sky’s the limit when it comes to luxury in Singapore!

How can I avoid ATM fees in Singapore?

To dodge ATM fees in Singapore:

  • Check if your bank has partnerships with banks in Singapore for free withdrawals.
  • Withdraw larger amounts less frequently to minimise transaction fees.
  • Look for ATMs that charge lower fees.

How does tipping work in Singapore?

In Singapore, tipping is pretty easy to understand. Most of the time, you don’t need to tip at restaurants because they already add a 10% service charge to your bill. It’s all taken care of!

Overall, Singapore makes it simple: enjoy the service without worrying too much about tipping.

Is Singapore a cheap country to visit?

Singapore is a bit of a mix when it comes to costs. It’s known for being on the pricier side compared to other Southeast Asian countries. 

But don’t worry! There are also plenty of ways to enjoy Singapore without spending a lot. You can eat delicious meals at hawker centres for a few dollars, visit beautiful gardens for free, and use public transport to get around quickly.

So, while Singapore has its expensive spots, you can find ways to make your visit more affordable.

Singapore City Skyline


If you’re from the UK and planning a trip to Singapore, here’s some good news: You usually don’t need a visa for short visits! UK passport holders can enter Singapore for up to 90 days for tourism without a visa.

Just make sure your passport is valid for at least six months from the date you plan to enter Singapore. 

For UK travellers heading to Singapore, no specific vaccinations are required to enter the country. However, being up-to-date with your routine vaccinations is always a good idea. These include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot.

The best time to visit Singapore is pretty much all year round! The city has a warm, tropical climate that doesn’t change much. 

Here’s a list of things you can do, depending on when you visit:

Year-round attractions

  • ArtScience Museum: Explore the fusion of art, science, culture, and technology.
  • Singapore River cruise: See the city’s historic sights and skyline from the water.
  • Hawker Centres: Sample local dishes like Hainanese chicken rice and laksa.

However, aim for February to April if you want to catch the best weather. These months are lovely because they fall right after the rainy season and before the hot summer.

  • Gardens by the Bay: Marvel at the futuristic park with its Supertree Grove and flower domes.
  • Sentosa Island: Enjoy the beaches, Universal Studios, and the S.E.A. Aquarium.
  • Singapore Zoo and Night Safari: Get up close with wildlife in one of the world’s best zoos and the thrilling Night Safari.

Remember, Singapore has its rainy season from November to January. So, if you prefer to stay dry, you might want to avoid these months.

November to January – Rainy season

  • Deepavali: See Little India light up for the Festival of Lights.
  • Christmas in the Tropics: Orchard Road dazzles with lights and decorations.
  • Marina Bay Singapore countdown: Ring in the New Year with fireworks and festivities.

Upcoming events in 2024:

The 2024 Singapore Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on September 20-22, featuring the electrifying night race at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. 

This iconic event is part of the F1 2024 calendar, offering an unforgettable experience with the city’s stunning skyline serving as the backdrop. 

No matter when you visit, Singapore’s blend of cultures, cuisines, and landscapes means there’s always something exciting to discover!

Singapore is a food lover’s paradise! Here are five traditional foods you’ve got to try:

  • Hainanese chicken rice: It’s a simple yet delicious dish. Tender chicken served with fragrant rice cooked in chicken broth. 
  • Laksa: A spicy noodle soup that combines Chinese and Malay flavours. It’s creamy, with coconut milk, and packed with shrimp, fish cakes, and noodles.
  • Chilli crab: A must-try seafood dish. Crabs are cooked in a thick, sweet, and spicy tomato-based sauce. Grab some mantou (fried buns) to dip in the sauce.
  • Char Kway Teow: Stir-fried noodles that are smoky and full of flavour. It has prawns, cockles, Chinese lap cheong (sausage), egg, and bean sprouts.
  • Satay: Skewered and grilled meat, served with peanut sauce. It’s perfect for a snack or meal and comes with cucumber and rice cakes.
