Taxi

Taxis are handy to reach places not accessible by the bus or MRT. Taxis are metered, but surcharges may apply. Check with the driver for a rough idea of the final fare and surcharges, and ask for a receipt at the end of the trip. You can hail a taxi by the roadside at most places, or at taxi stands found at most malls, hotels and tourist attractions.

 

To Book A Cab:

You can call a common taxi booking number, 6-DIAL CAB (6342-5222), and your call will be routed to an available taxi company’s call centre.

Walking

If you fancy getting up and about early, and you are staying not far from Chinatown, what could be better than a morning stroll to Chinatown?
