Planning our Trip to Singapore

We are slowly working our way through planning our next big trip! At first, we were keeping our notes on our own personal laptops, but decided we’d just share them with the world instead.

What plug type do they use?
They use type G, which is also the same plug as used in the UK!

When?
We are planning on heading there straight after Indonesia, so hopefully should be in Singapore for December and maybe even across Christmas!! The weather in December tends to still pretty warm with temperatures of around 25 degrees.

Why?
Its been on our list since we fell in love with Bali in 2016 and decided to travel Asia in 2018!

Total Trip Budget?
The AUD seems to be about the same exchange as a Singapore Dollar. All prices are also based on two people/couple. The total cost for four days in Singapore should be around $800/£450.
