Hotels to stay
:Marina Bay Sand is a luxurious hotel.Indians can prefer hotels around Little India so that you can taste a lot of street food flavours of India in that area.We stayed in Ramada hotel which is also a good one.
If you are a travel person then Singapore should top the list of your must watch places.I am from Trichy,Tamil Nadu and I planned a family trip from India to Singapore with my husband and my 5 year old daughter.We chose the places of attraction such that it would entertain our daughter the most.We wanted the trip to be a well organised one so we booked the hotel room and all the tickets and passes to the places we were going to visit, well in advance to avoid later confusions.
We went in the month of December because December to June is the ideal month to visit the country.The cheapest months to visit the country is from July to August when the hotel rooms and flight fares are cheap.
We booked our flight tickets a few months earlier in the Scoot Airways.There are many direct flights from India to Singapore which you can choose as per your convenience.We did all our bookings through Lakshmi Travel Agency in Trichy which had a link with the United Travels and tours Pte Ltd - a local travel agency of Singapore.You can also book your trips through other online travel sites like Tripclap.com,MakeMyTrip.com etc, where the whole package is taken care of by them while you sit and relax.
We boarded the flight at 1.30 am on the 5th of December and landed in Singapore by 6.00am.We were greeted by the travel agency executive with placards at the Changi airport.He explained to us about our tour details and handed over all the passes and tickets along with emergency phone numbers and taxi driver’s numbers.We then took a taxi to our hotel.We wanted to book a hotel near an area called Little India which was famous for all types of Indian cuisine but unfortunately all the hotels were full so we booked our room in the Ramada by Wyndham hotel in the Ah hood road.
