Getting Around Singapore

The MRT is Singapore's metro system. The MRT (Mass Rapid Transportation) trains run frequently and are air-conditioned, and although they get crowded during rush hour, the trains cover most areas in Singapore. A comfortable bus network connects you to those parts of Singapore that are not served by the MRT. Most long-term visitors and locals buy the pre-paid EZ-Link smart card that can be used in the metro and in the buses, and that can be topped up at any MRT station.

Interesting places to visit in Singapore include its different ethnic areas, especially Chinatown and Little India. Chinatown has colorful street markets, good restaurants, clinics that offer treatments in Traditional Chinese Medicine and shops that sell Chinese herbal products.
