Things to do to and from the airport in 24 hours or less – I’m Aileen Solo Travel

Explore Singapore on your own!

Before you go to the next tab with the magic word “FREE“I recommend doing this DIY Singapore Layover Tour on your own if you’d rather have the flexibility to choose the places you actually want to go. After all, Singapore Changi Airport’s free tours usually don’t give you enough time to explore the city and its stops. This is apart from the fact that they have limited tour time windows.

IMPORTANT TIPS:

  • Much like I mentioned above, this type of Singapore stopover is ideal if you have one at least 6 hours Between your flights (8 hours are the safest) – traffic, transit, check-in and arrival times are taken into account.
  • Don’t forget to leave your luggage at the airport. It is best to leave your hand luggage and all other heavy backpacks with you, as they are a problem when exploring the city.
    • All terminals at Singapore Changi Airport have luggage storage and counters and are even available 24 hours a day. Prices usually start at $ 4. For more information, see Here,
  • It is also best if all flights are operated by the same airline, unless this is done by airline partners. So you can bring your checked baggage to your destination. (This saves you the hassle of checking in your luggage again after your stay in Singapore or after a stopover.)
  • Scroll up and read the Tips section to learn how to get around the city and its neighborhoods.

Now I am NOT You will be asked to do all of the activities listed below at once as this is simply impossible. Sure, Singapore may be a small mega-city, but it still has plenty of attractions and activities to offer.

What I’m suggesting instead is you Select one or two categories below (orange, depending on your preference) and then you either do all the activities below or a few (depending on how long your stay lasts).
