You can flag down a taxi any time, but in the city center taxis are technically not allowed to stop anywhere except at designated taxi stands. If you want a car for local driving only, it’s worth checking smaller operators, where the rates are often cheaper than the big global rental firms. Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway system is the easiest, quickest and most comfortable way to get around Singapore. Find more information on transportation here.

Other Things To Know
Most restaurants in Singapore add a 10% service charge to the bill so a tip is not expected. If you insist on tipping your waiter, it is best to hand the cash directly to the person as some restaurants take the tips that are left on the table. Tipping bellhops at hotels is not mandatory, but acceptable.
Singapore is an extremely safe and clean city. You can travel to any part of Singapore alone at any time of the year, regardless of gender. However, it is always advisable to take basic precautions for your own good.
