As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, it's no wonder that Singapore continues to entice travellers from all over the world with its stunning skylines, rich tapestry of cultures and (of course!) mouth-watering cuisines!
There's simply so much to see and do on this sunny island nation-state that planning a weekend getaway here might just overwhelm you. To make life easier for you, though, we've put together a fun-filled 3D2N itinerary in Singapore just for you! You're welcome ?

Getting from Changi Airport to the city
1. By train (MRT)
Changi Airport MRT Station (local trains are known as MRT) is directly accessible from Terminals 2 & 3.
- From Terminal 1: Take the Airport's Skytrain to Terminal 2, then head to the basement to find the MRT station.
- From Terminal 4: take the free shuttle bus from T4 Arrival Hall door 1 to T2, then head to the basement to find the MRT station.
You can find a convenient list of every hotel in Singapore AND the closest MRT stations to them at Changi Airport MRT Station. Ask the friendly MRT staff when in doubt!
Take the MRT to Tanah Merah Station, then transfer onto a train heading towards Joo Koon. Alight at the closest MRT station to your hotel! It'll take approximately 40-45 mins.
If public transport is your main mode of transportation for the duration of your stay in Singapore, we recommend getting the Singapore Tourist Pass. It gives you unlimited rides on MRTs, LRTs and buses across Singapore so you can breeze from one attraction to the next hassle-free! 1-day passes cost SGD10, 2-day passes for SGD16 and 3-day passes for SGD20. Available at selected TransitLink Ticket Offices.
2. By bus
Head to the basement bus bays located at Terminals 1, 2 and 3 (for Terminal 4, the bus stop is located next to the Carpark 4B) and take bus 36 or 36A for a ride into the city.
This is the slowest way to get to the airport, though the bus stops at several central downtown areas, including Suntec City Mall, The Esplanade, Somerset and Orchard Road. Depending on traffic, it can take anywhere from 1-2 hours.
3. By taxi
Taxis are always available in abundant supply at Changi Airport regardless of the time of day. All taxis in Singapore are metered, so you won't have to worry about bargaining for your fare! A taxi ride into the city will take about 20-30 mins and costs about SGD24-SGD29.
We know: how could anyone survive without WiFi access while travelling?! To keep yourself connected to the people and events back home, it's important to get an affordable pocket WiFi device or, better still, a local 4G sim card!
1. 4G WiFi
For all your Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp needs while travelling, Klook's 4G Portable WiFi device
will work perfectly, offering unlimited internet service to up to 8 devices at once. Pick it up and drop it off at Changi Airport for your own convenience ?
Get $5 off your very first Klook purchase when you use our code <TRAVELHHWT>!
2. Sim Card
If you're a solo traveller who doesn't need to share a pocket WiFi device with anyone, you can alternatively get Klook's 4G sim card
that'll give you 100GB of free local data, 20mins of international calls and 500 mins of local calls!

First things first: you can't visit Singapore without trying the island's most beloved murtabak!* Head over to Zam Zam Restaurant on North Bridge Road (a 10-min walk from Bugis MRT station) to sink your teeth into some of the most mouthwatering murtabak you'll ever come across (seriously, we're not kidding.)
*Murtabak: fried dough stuffed with chicken, mutton or beef with onions and egg, served with a bowl of rich Indian curry.
We can never decide between their mutton murtabak and their chicken murtabak: it's such a close fight! Zam Zam's mutton murtabak is served with a crispy base layer of plain prata and a top layer of egg with minced mutton, while their chicken murtabak is served with juicy masala chicken chunks stuffed inside a thick egg prata.
You'll want to have BOTH of them while you're here, trust us. But in case that's not enough for you, the rest of Zam Zam's menu is just as irresistible: from Mee Goreng to briyani and more ?
Once you've filled your tummies with that local Indian feast, pay a visit to one of Singapore's most beloved historic (and photogenic) mosques--the Sultan Mosque, just across the road from Zam Zam!

Built in 1824, the Sultan Mosque was one of the first mosques in Singapore, and its architecture is a true reflection of Singapore's multicultural identity, being a mix of classic, Persian, Moorish and Turkish architecture ?

Situated just 2 minutes away from the Sultan Mosque, Haji Lane is a veritable hipster shopping paradise. It's packed with nifty little shops whose beautifully decorated window displays irresistibly entice passers-by to enter!

But even if shopping bores you half to death, Haji Lane itself is drenched in bright colours, street art and vibrant graffiti, which makes for an unmissable (profile pic-worthy) photo opportunity!
