Singapore

: www.wildwildwet.com Wild Wild Wet ''' water theme park or the '''Adventure Cove Waterpark (Singapore Sentosa#Resorts World Sentosa)''' and get yourself wet with various exciting water slides and tidal wave pools. For those who don't like pools, head out to the beaches. The '''East Coast Park (Singapore East Coast)''' has a scenic coastline that stretches over 15 km. It's a popular getaway spot for Singaporeans to swim, cycle, barbeque and engage in various other sports and activities. '''Sentosa island (Singapore Sentosa)''' also has three white, sandy beaches - Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach - each with its own distinct characteristics, and also very popular with locals. Water sports Besides more regular water sports such as water skiing, wake boarding, windsurfing and canoeing, Singapore also offers water sports fans trendy activities such as cable-skiing and wave surfing in specially created environments. Snow sports While obviously not the best place on earth for skiing, sunny Singapore still has a permanent indoor snow centre. Snow City offers visitors a chance to experience winter. Visitors can escape from the hot and humid tropical weather to play in snow or even learn to ski and snowboard with certified professional instructors. Buy Currency The Singaporean currency is the '''Singapore dollar''', abbreviated '''SGD''', '''S$''' or just '''$''' (as used throughout this guide), divided into 100 cents. There are coins of $0.05 (gold), $0.10 (silver), $0.20 (silver), $0.50 (silver) and $1 (gold), plus notes of $2 (purple), $5 (green), $10 (red), $50 (blue), $100 (orange), $1,000 (purple) and $10,000 (gold). Along with its Brunei counterpart, the SGD10,000 banknote has the largest intrinsic value of any banknote in current circulation (valued at USD7,840 in September 2014). Although Singapore itself is squeaky clean, it will cease to be printed in October 2014 because it facilitates bribery and corruption in neighbouring countries such as Indonesia. The Brunei dollar is pegged at par with the Singapore dollar and the two currencies can be used interchangeably in both countries, so don't be too surprised if you get a Brunei note as change. You can safely assume that the "$" sign used in the island-nation refers to SGD unless it includes other initials (e.g., US$ or USD to stand for US dollar). '''Currency exchange''' booths can be found in every shopping mall and usually offer better rates, better opening hours, and much faster service than banks. The huge 24 hr operation at Mustafa in Little India (Singapore Little India) accepts almost any currency at very good rates, as do the fiercely competitive small shops at the aptly named Change Alley next to Raffles Place MRT. For large amounts, ask for a quote, as it will often get you a better rate than displayed on the board. Rates at the airport are not as good as in the city, and while many department stores accept major foreign currencies, their rates are often terrible. Banking Singapore is one of the largest financial centres in the region, so there are numerous banks to choose from. Partly due to strong banking secrecy laws and the fact that interest paid on bank deposits is not taxable in Singapore, Singaporean banks are increasingly seen as an alternative to Swiss (Switzerland) banks for the world's richest people to stash their assets. Opening a bank account is a straightforward process and there are no restrictions on foreigners owning a bank account in Singapore. The largest local banks in Singapore are '''United Overseas Bank (UOB)''', '''DBS Bank''' and '''Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC Bank)'''. Major foreign banks that have a large presence in Singapore include '''HSBC''', '''Standard Chartered Bank''' and '''Citibank'''. '''ATMs''' are ubiquitous in Singapore and '''credit cards''' are widely accepted. The most widely accepted credit cards in Singapore are Visa and MasterCard, and many shops also accept American Express. Discover, JCB and China UnionPay cards are also accepted in most shops that primarily cater to tourists, though they are typically not accepted in shops catering to a more local clientele. Although credit card surcharges are not allowed in Singapore, many merchants get around this rule by offering discounts over the listed price if you pay in cash. Travellers cheques are generally ''not'' accepted by retailers, but can be cashed at most exchange booths and banks. eZ-Link and Nets Flash Pay cards are accepted in some convenience stores and fast food chains. Tipping Tipping is generally ''not'' practised in Singapore, and is officially frowned upon by the government; however, it is common for restaurants to levy a 10% service charge before GST, the local goods and services tax. Restaurants often display prices like $19.99++, which means that service charge (10%) and sales tax (7%) are not included and will be added to your bill; in most restaurants the employees never actually receive this service charge. When you see NETT, it means it includes all taxes and service charges. Bellhops still expect $2 or so per bag. Taxis will usually return your change to the last cent, or round in your favour if they can't be bothered to dig for change; congestion or Electronic Road Pricing charges are often already included in the final fare. All taxis must advertise a hotline to call if the customer feels dissatisfied. Tipping is prohibited at the airport. Costs Singapore is expensive by Asian standards, but affordable compared with OECD countries: $50 is a perfectly serviceable daily backpacker budget if you are willing to cut some corners, though you would probably wish to double that for comfort. Food in particular is a steal, with excellent hawker food available for under $5 for a generous serving. Accommodation is a little pricier, but a bed in a hostel can cost less than $20, an average mid-range hotel in the city centre would typically cost anywhere from $100–300 per night for a basic room, and the most luxurious hotels on the island (except maybe the Raffles) can cost $300 after discounts during the off-peak season. As rough rules of thumb, prices in Singapore are about twice as high as in Malaysia and Thailand and 3-5 times as high as in Indonesia and the Philippines.
