Step 3: Remain Connected

While Wi-Fi is everywhere, getting information while exploring Singapore is better served when you have a proper internet connection for your mobile devices.

Do check with your telco or search for a prepaid travel SIM card like AirSIM (Hong Kong).

Step 4: Change Your Money

SIngapore is very connected when paying for products and services. Our public transport can be paid using overseas Debit and Credit card so long you have the PayWave feature switched on.

Then again, to keep costs low some businesses prefer cash over payment using credit card. This is important when dining at Hawker Centers.
