    The best neighborhood? That would be relative to what exactly you are seeking in Singapore: whether you love shopping, sightseeing, relaxing on the beach, casino gambling, gourmet food, cabaret and classical concerts etc. If you are from overseas as most visitors to our republic are, they usually stay at either the upmarket hotels in Orchard Road or the budget hotels scattered in our Little India or Chinatown. As our island is rather tiny compared to other countries, you will have no problem getting from one corner of the island to another with our efficient and clean public transport such as the Mass Rapid Transport trains and busses. Taxis are available at your beck and call if you so desire.
    I am assuming you are a visitor and not a local, so if you stay in "Little India" as we call our tiny enclave of mainly Indian nationals, you will be greeted with the culture, smell and deliciously spicy food of the subcontinent. If you are in Chinatown, likewise you will be immersed in the comings and goings of our predominantly Chinese community. If you love an active nightlife, our knowledgable taxi drivers will fetch you to our latest and most happening nightspots here, be it for dancing, binge drinking or whatever your fancy strikes you.
    Have an enjoyable time here in Singapore and we hope you will bring home fond memories and recommend your friends or family to our little Food, shopping and Garden Paradise. over 6 years ago

    Hi,

    If price really isn't a problem, you really should stay in a 4 star hotel in Singapore because only then the hotel would be decent. I once stayed in a so-called 3-star hotel that I booked via travel agent and was shocked to death to see what I got: a room with a window that was blocked by the building next door. I know that 3-star isn't a 5-star, but I really wasn't prepared for a pseudo 3-star like what I experienced in Singapore.Singapore tour guides such as http://www.tourhq.com/singapore-tours-guide can assist you and your family. over 4 years ago

    Marina Bay, Orchard Road, River Valley are of course the nicest, poshest areas to stay in, but they are also expensive. If you are looking for a more budget-friendly option, Little India and Chinatown are great. Easy connectivity with MRT, restaurants, shops, touristy attractions are all close-by. over 4 years ago
