Where to Stay in Singapore
Something that may surprise you when visiting Singapore is the price of accomodation. Although it's a country in South East Asia, the prices, just like the salaries of its inhabitants are, similar to Europe or the USA.
Best Areas to Stay in Singapore
The centre of Singapore isn't so big, and is well connected with public transport. So any central hotel is perfect for your stay in the city.
Our favourite areas to stay in are Esplanade, Orchard Road and Boat Quay. The hotels around the bay, such as Marina Bay Sands, area also a safe option.
Of the most frequent areas to look for a hotel in Singapore, Little India is the one that we'd least recommend. When night falls, the atmosphere is a bit more sketchy compared to that by day.
Hotels in Singapore
Although the prices of the cheapest hotels start around US$ 40 per double room, it's unusual to find a decent hotel for less than US$ 75 per night, and you shouldn't forget to add the 17% tax to that.
