Singapore Lodging

The Scoop

Singapore is one of the most expensive countries and cities to live in according to Forbes. When reserving a room don’t expect to find a private room for under $60 USD a night.  We ended up staying about 15 minutes outside of the downtown area and got our own private tiny hotel room with a bathroom for around $60 USD (see pictures). When I say tiny it was basically a bed, a walk way and the smallest bathroom you have ever seen. The hotel worked great for the 3 nights we spent there though. When booking always take in consideration how much transportation will cost you to get to the downtown area. If there are 2 of you and it costs $20 every day, and you can get a place in the middle of town for $20 more and it would be more convenient.  Sites that you can book a great room in Singapore that we use are Air Bnb,, and Agoda (in Asia areas).
