Holiday Costs in Singapore

Mark was asked to get some up to date holiday costs from Singapore for one of our guests visiting soon. “Overall, the thing I found with Singapore is that prices vary depending on where you are, as they do in most major cities, so it's a case of keeping an eye on prices if you don't want to over-spend. Some parts of Singapore (mainly the office areas of the city centre or the expat hangouts) tend to be pricey (I'd equate them to London prices) but elsewhere it can be better value for money.

The difference between Economy and Business Class is very impressive, and I can now appreciate why people are willing to pay quite a lot of money for it - the main difference being the fact you can get a decent night’s sleep! There are about 20 seats in Club World (British Airway’s Business Class service) in pairs which are next to each other, but the two people are facing each other.
