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.

"Clean and Great Location! - As far as my first hostel experience, Wink was fantastic. The bathrooms were clean and never too busy. Our first night we noticed a lot of hair in the sinks and drains but as far as ladies washrooms go, that can't be helped and falls more upon individuals being inconsiderate than the hostel itself. Besides, every morning and night after that it seemed like we were always running into someone just finishing cleaning...

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!!!
