1/ <<Budget ( 100- 120 usd / nght). , >>

Fot the family of 4????? Sorry, too low for the most expansive SIN.

2/ <<Is airport transfer generally provided by the hotel ? >>

NO, only Marina Bay Sands ofer free transfer to hotel from the airport. All other hotels charge for airport pick-up ( about 50 SGD), or you go to hotel on your own:

# taxi - around 20-22 SGD

# shuttle - 9 SGD/ adult, 6 SGD/ child (below 12 years of age)

# MRT. To get to the city, passengers need to transfer to the west bound train at Tanah Merah train station. The last train service leaving Changi Airport station which would allow a transfer to the last west bound train at Tanah Merah station is scheduled at 11.18pm.

3/ <<What all should we visit>>


4/ with your budget i hardly imagine any hotel to suggest. Please check the rates on Expedia.com or asiarooms.com to HAVE an impression what`s the price range is for SIN accommodation.

Adding on to the previous post on:

1. you may wish to check out V Hotel Lavender (above Lavender MRT Station and a big food hall, one station away from great shopping at Bugis), Value Hotel Thomson (5mins walk to bus stop and plenty of food shops around) and Grand Chancellor Hotel (food and shops galore in Little India). For your budget you'll just get one child's rollaway bed max.

2. you get one way airport to hotel transfer voucher if you book your room with Asiatravel.com.

3. you can buy a combo ticket from Suntec City for the Zoo, Night Safari, Duck Tour and Singapore Flyer (42 storey high ferris wheel). At Suntec City you can

check out the Fountain of Wealth and walk or take the MRT to Marina Bay Sands. Universal Studios and the other attractions on Sentosa such as the Merlion and Crane Show can be covered on the same day. Plus one whole day to visit Chinatown, Little India and for shopping at Mustafa.
