About Singapore City
Singapore is one of the cleanest, most well-tended cities Southeast Asia has to offer. Technically Singapore is a city-state, a tiny area at the southern tip of Malaysia, but it's a major gateway into the Far-Eastern world.
Singapore is very well set up for backpackers with a number of excellent quality hostels. While prices are higher than in much of Asia, so is the quality — you really do get what you pay for. Most Singapore hostels are situated in two main areas — Little India and Chinatown. Both of these areas are bustling centers with markets and international influence which are impossible not to fall in love with. Tucked away down side streets you'll find independent, well-run little hostels where a plethora of well-traveled and interesting people hang out. These areas are also great for cheap, ethnic food and the fragrant night markets and local restaurants will sate any appetite.
It's not difficult to get a room in Singapore, but as with any major backpacker destination, if you have your heart set on some place in particular then do book in advance. Rooms are more scarce over Chinese New Year in February when many people flock to the city, so if you are planning to visit over that week, booking in advance is essential.

"98SG is a decent enough place to put your feet up for a few days. It has all the basics of a general hostel and the young man running it is certainly kindly and reasonably helpful, if a bit on the timid side -- which is strange for someone running a hostel. The Location The location is quite ideal, as the hostel is a two-minute walk from a sky train station, which makes it a good location. This is simply because there is a fairly...

"Good but can be further improved - It was a nice experience of staying at The Mitraa. First of all the room and the bed is clean, the washrooms are clean as well. The things that I was not so satisfied with were: no personal electrical socket at each bed, and this was so inconvenient as a few users gotta share the only two sockets in the room. a few of the personal lockers in the rooms are not secured as the locks have already been damaged....

Singapore City Travel Tips & Suggestions
It's a great city to visit! You won't get lost -- just ask around or follow the signs and you'll reach the place where you want to go.
Excellent paradise on earth -- all helpful people. Nice sightseeing managed by tourism department. Do eat crab, murtabak, nasi gorang, and drink Singapore sling, it may incomplete your trip. Nothing bad at all about Singapore.
The zoo, bird garden, and night safari can be done on one ticket costing 30 singapore dollars, definitely worth it.
Go on a tour of the city and a cruise in a bum boat. Fabulous!!!
