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.

"Well, 98SG isn't great, but what can you expect for the extremely low price? It starts on the second floor of a building over top of Mayflower Foods. When you arrive, you have to call to check-in and they will come over from across the street. There is no on-site reception. It isn't a hostel like you typically find, rather an office space in a rundown building that was converted into multi-person shared rooms. The Wi-Fi works well. The...

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!!!
