On a world map, Singapore may appear to be a small island country in Southeast Asia, and when we are talking land dimensions, it’s certainly the case.

Don’t let size fool you!!! For what appears small is really large at heart, and once you step inside Singapore, you are standing in a whole new world full of modern infrastructure and mesmerising beauty.

Making the most out of your Singapore Vacation needs to have a well thought out itinerary, especially if you’re only entering the country for a short stay on a stopover, where time is not always your friend and you’re busy rushing around visiting all the sights.  

The dollar factor could come into consideration too, it’s a well known fact that Singapore doesn’t come cheap, and you could often be looking over your budget and questioning what is affordable or not.

Don’t let it worry you, because there are plenty of things to do in Singapore that won’t break the bank. 

Whatever the circumstances, whatever the budget, it always helps to be prepared in advance by jotting down a list of attractions and making the most out of your Singapore Vacation.
