    Is this an accurate figure??? Seems way over the top for even a jacked-up expat rate...

    If it is house in the newly-completed waterside residences . . . yes it's quite normal and not jacked up for expats.

    We have a friend, an American in the oil business, who recently bought a place there for well over 3 million Sing.

    I felt quite inadequate paying 3k/month for mine . . .

    ^From what I could gather from the girl I met in Singapore, appartments are indeed far too expensive, reason why many post-graders still seem to prefer staying in Hotel Mama long after they got their first job. One of the reasons that put me off working in Singapore in the future tbh.

    Nice . . . and the opening of the MRT helped the price, of course.

    If you want any advice on Singapore then just ask here in Teak Door. I have lived in Singapore for almost 15 years and there are others who live here or have lived here too.

    Just don't expect Thailand prices

    Or even London prices when it comes to alcohol!

    I have been going there since the days they made you have a haircut before they would let you in. Lived there for a while in the 80's, rented a nice house in Gold hill for about 150 sing a month. I imagine its more expensive now.
    For some reason its always had the look and feel of a totally boring city, no matter how many plastic attraction they put up, it just gets more boring. I think its the people. They have been conditioned not to express themselves, had any remnants of personality engineered out of them.
    And the expats, fvck me, never met a bunch of more arrogant cvnts in all my life (SBF excepted )

    I don't consider myself an expat, PP.

    Well my employment contract states I am on local terms and conditions anyway.

    Personally I don't think it is boring....and if it is then you have more exciting and less stable countries a short journey away.

    On my trips to Sing from Malaysia I always found time to go to Molly Malones' for a couple of pints of Guinness and their Cumberland sausage and chips !
    Cost an arm and a bloody leg but I was on expenses and could slip them by our accountant !!
    I like it there but way too expensive!

    When I'm in Singapore I find heaps to do as I just be a good tourist and do that stuff. Heaps of hot looking tottie to check out as well.

    Used to stay at a brilliant budget hotel opposite Bugis Street called " The 7th story Hotel"

    Government knocked it over last year to build another metro interchange Bastards just priced me out of the market as theirs no such thing as decent budget accommodation any more so now enter Asia through KL instead of Singapore.

    Friggin liked Singapore.

    We'll be spending a 7 day vacation towards the end of October and are basically going to see the sites and take in the atmosphere. I.ve visited a few times before but just for extended stop-overs and long weekends but my Thai gf has never been

    Thought of staying in Little India and booking at the airport. Would like to see the Changi POW museum and perhaps spend some time in that area as I hear it is not very touristy and we'd like to see the real Singapore.

    We're ready for the difference in prices but want to keep costs down as much as we can. I've found the hawker stalls good value in the best though we'll try some other restaurants too. Raffles I think we will give a miss.

    What are the best shopping opportunities or is Singers not the best place to shop.

    What would you budget on a daily basis.

    Hope to take lots of pics and posrt them here on our return

    Any ideas, comments guys ?

    I was in Singapore in 1972, just about the time they started to knock the place down. The place was alive with street markets and an open sewer running through the main parts. I remember staying at "Sandy's Soldiers Home" for a week after completing a course at the jungle warfare school in Kota Tingi, Malaysia. The memories come flooding back. Bugis Street being the place to see/meet Kai Tai's (excuse the spelling) of which I saw but didn't touch. Arab Street was where you could buy anything from a gun to the boots you'd disposed of the week before in the Malayan jungle. How I miss the old Singapore. Been back twice since then and still love the place. My tip for anyone going, is to visit the British war cemetery out next to the race track, a very emotional experience that brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. Thank Durianfan, I owe you big time.

    We were thinking of going to the Sunday service at the POW chapel too - if they still do that.

    Are there familiarisation tours of Singapore or would getting a bus pass and a good bus map be a good idea to get a quick overview.

    . The MRT goes almost everywhere these days. Anyway if you get one of those tourist passes you can use the buses too. I guess you will have to get a bus to the Changi POW chapel from Tanah Merah MRT station

    The Singapore Tourist Pass
