We will be in Singapore next year and would like to visit Indonesia for the day and have a meal somewhere. I have seen there are ferries between the two and a day trip to TP should be possible. Has anyone done this? Does anyone know what the visa requirements would be for Indonesia travelling from Singapore and back. We are German and British. Any tips on what to do in Tanjung Pinang - there is a small island near the main city which has some historic sites - how easy is it to get there? Thanks

Hi there…has anyone stayed at either of these Hotel 81 hotels in the Joo Chiat area? Which one is the better one that doesn't have too many hanky panky rooms?
I'm flying from Penang to Singapore in two weeks, but the flight would arrive at almost midnight so I would completely miss the last MRT. Are there any rest areas for me to sleep at for a couple of hours only?? If I just wanna take a little nap in the airport, could I do that before heading through immigration? Not so familiar with the Airport, sorry. Please help :/
A bit tacky and maybe not fully representative, this is a video put together by four Japanese exchange students:

Hello Travel experts,
Just wondering what is the best plan for a cell phone in Singapore going for a few days next week and don't want to incur massive roaming charges. I have iphone 4s so should I get a prepaid sim card for it or get a trac phone with a Singapore sim?
Some people say don't wait and try to buy a sim card at the airport because of the wait and the crowd. Some people advise buy a cheap phone with a specific Singapore sim card and a charger for my laptop.
Thanks for any advice.
Hello everyone, I'm doing 12 days in SE Asia in the next couple weeks - Vietnam, Thailand, and Singapore. Hoping for some help reviewing my plan!
Since these countries are split by LP into different sections, I'm going to post a specific country itinerary in the relevant section instead of one massive itinerary in one section...
I will be traveling with one or two other experienced travelers in the next few weeks. Packing light. More interested in adventurous days than nights, however we're social so we'll certainly be going out at night. Big fans of the "local" experience and good food.
Off the beaten path/non touristy areas much appreciated! We're a mix of guys and girls. No preference on hostels or hotels, but we do enjoy the social nature of hostels.
If you have some thoughts or ideas, please let me know! Positive or negative, all appreciated.

The zoo itself is decent, and the shows are OK, but don't waste your money on the night safari.
A separate park is used for the night safari and is closed during the day. It has an open concept, meaning many of the animals can roam freely, so I thought there might be some up close viewing from the tram, or the pathways. Didn't work out that way. Mostly you just saw a few small animals run away, or silhouettes of bigger ones among the trees.
The viewing might improve slightly with a bright full moon.
The fire eaters/breathers show was OK, but the creatures of the night show was a bust.
I'm for some business in Singapore right now and I thought - why not just move over to Malaysia for like half a day or whatever.
So anyone right now in Singapore who wnats to join me?
My start would be at Buona-Vista MRT station.
Participants appreciated :-)
I am visiting Singapore for an official meeting at December 10. after meeting I will get some time at evening and night and some hours at morning at next day. I am staying at hotel fragrance hotel waterfront. So any suggestion on what I should try in this short time?
This is my first visit to Singapore.
My boyfriend and I are planning on visiting Singapore around Chinese New year, but I'm not entirely sure which dates will be the best.
If I'm not mistaken, Chinese New year is on Jan 31, and the eve is Jan 30. I've heard that things are fairly shut down on Chinese New year day itself, and the days after. We're planning on spending only 3 nights in Singapore. Initally I had thought Jan 30-Feb 2, but would the 28-31 be better? Also, how difficult will it be for us to get to the airport on Chinese New year day?
Thanks for your thoughts!
Hey, after a lot off searching through the net once agin I'm getting confused regarding visas. My husband and I are doing a house sit in Singapore from 6/8weeks . We will be flying in from Sri Lanka to Malaysia Kuala Lumpur, from there fly down to Singapore. Being a U.K citizen I am aware we get a 90day visa on arrival for Malaysia and I have read that we will also get a 90day visa if we fly into Singapore on arrival which would mean we have plenty off time there. But I have also read that we only get 30days ,Is this information correct or am I going mad again!! Or are they the same visa?? Thanks for any advise in advance
