  • Many examples of old British architecture can be found here, especially around the Padang. The National Museum and the Peranakan Museum are also located in the area.
  • Sentosa Island
  • Just off the coast, you can visit Universal Studios, play golf and even laze on the beaches here, all with the impressive Singaporean skyline as a background.

Cross-border currency

The Singaporean dollar (SGD) came into circulation in 1967, with each dollar consisting of 100 cents. You might hear the dollar being affectionately referred to as ‘sing’ by the locals.

TThe 10,000 SGD note is currently the most valuable banknote in the world, although in 2014 Singapore stopped printing it, with the aim of taking it out of circulation. It is still legal tender, and will be until the last notes are returned to the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

You are likely to find a 10% service charge added to your bill in restaurants. If not, there is no general rule for how much you should leave – it’s really up to you and whatever you feel comfortable giving. Remember though: if you’re in an airport restaurant tipping isn’t typically allowed, whereas tipping in bars or taxis is very uncommon.

Frequently used banknotes

Notes are available to the value of 2 (violet), 5 (green), 10 (red), 50 (blue), 100 (orange), 1,000 (purple) and 10,000 (brown) SGD.

The latest series of coins are to the value of 5, 10, 20, and 50 cents, as well as one dollar. There are many of the old 1 cent coins in circulation, but these are no longer being issued. Given the very low value of 1 cent SGD (roughly the equivalent of 0.005 GBP), it is unlikely you will end up with one.

A good way to purchase currency without waiting at a bank. The rates are so - so but that's expected with currency sellers. Easy pick up at Post Office with ID, look out for online promo vouchers when purchasing for discount.
