Singapore has a tropical rainforest climate with abundant rainfall. Temperatures hover around 30°C, not rising above 31-33°C during the day, while temperatures drops to below 23°C at night.
The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is the quickest way to get around Singapore. While you can purchase single-trip tickets, it is more convenient to get an EZ-link card, which saves you the hassle of buying and refunding tickets for your journeys. The EZ-link card can be bought at the control station at each MRT station. You can find a map of the MRT network on this website.
Taxis are only allowed to stop at designated taxi stands. They are relatively affordable and always use the meter, but there could be surcharges at certain times of the day. More information about the surcharges.
To check if a visa is required for you to come to Singapore, you can check with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority or with your local consular office.
