If you looking for budget airbnb Singapore home for your traveling than this awesome unit will let you enjoy this city better. Hi my name is Bima and thank you for visiting my blog.
I just got back from Singapore few days ago following micro stock photography journey around Singapore. By the way my brother live in Boon Lay for over than 7 years so I often go there both for photography business and vacation with my family. Once I got married I don’t wanna make their house messy because of my family so I choose to stay on my own accommodation and on this trip I brought my wife and three kids.
Over than 5 times visiting Singapore and always stay in touristic area get me bored so much so I told to my wife that I’m gonna take you to uncommon area in Singapore but there are less tourist but located right in the middle of Singaporean local housing, even more there are tons of incredible cheap restaurant that will provide you the best local and tasty food ever!
Suggestion of Visiting Singapore
Singapore is a small country actually so you don’t need to be worry about how to explore this city as well but if this gonna be your first time to Singapore than I will give you some recommendations about how to figure out this country like locals.
Visa to Singapore
Some of you will allow to visit Singapore in free for 30 days but other are not so to make clear about it than I suggest you to read all the immigration information on Ministry of Foreign Affairs Singapore.
Place to Visit at a Must
As I said before that Singapore is small so 2 to 3 days is quite enough to explore this country and give you lovely impressions about it. By the way it’s quite expensive to live in Singapore and I could said that it almost similar than if you go to London or Tokyo. So if this gonna be your first time than consider to visit these 4 areas:
- Orchard Rd
- Clarke Quay, and
- See the spectra laser show in Marina Bay Sands (highly recommended show updated on March 2019)
If this gonna be your second time to Singapore than I suggest you to visit some other uncommon areas that will give you different impression such as:
- Kampong Glam
- Arab street
- Chinese Garden, and
- Little India
When you need more specific information about Singapore than I suggest you to read Top 10 Singapore (DK Eyewitness Travel Guide) which come in Kindle and Paperback for sure.
How to Move Around Singapore
Do like locals!
Singaporean use MRT train and SMRT bus for whole life better than taxi or online transportation system so make sure you download the MRT train map before touch down in Changi international airport.
Riding the SMRT bus will quite challenging cause you definitely must know where to go and where to stop, cause I already use both (train and bus) so I could say it gonna be different experience between them and if you wanna explore the city better than riding with the bus is highly recommended even you may stop at any location immediately once you see lovely area that you wanna explore more.
Tips of Earning Money While You Travel
Traveling is not only burn your money out but now you can travel while making money at the same time and one good suggestion that I could recommend is by selling your travel photos even using a simple smartphone. You know that people are taking pictures about food, buildings, culture on their smartphone and within a year they just fulfil the phone capacity and start to delete one by one of their pictures.
Photos are investment and you could sell it online and let worldwide buyers download it and send the money through your account. Here I wanna share to you more about how to explore Singapore and selling your travel and food photos.
Budget Airbnb Singapore Home That Close to MRT Station
I browse about uncommon area to stay for my holiday so what I looking for is place that less tourist and I could see the locals. Suddenly I know a place called Dakota where there is Tanjung Katong street which come with everything that I really need on this trip. It’s quite, less tourist, located right in local people housing, and I could walk for just 3 minutes to got tasty local food.
This location is perfect and located only 500 meter from Dakota MRT station or 5 minutes bus ride from Paya Lebar MRT station (I try both to got into this house). Rooms are nice and come with minimalist design and what I got here is a simple unit with a shower box so I could take a shower in private, toilet are share outside the room just near the pantry that I also could use for free.
The negative thing about this home is just they only have stairs to got into the room platform which is in the 3rd floor but the rest is 100% perfect. If you travel with kids sometimes it’s quite difficult but I did it successfully even more if you just traveling alone or with your spouse than this gonna make any problem at all…it’s typical Singaporean housing for sure.
I know for sure that there are a lot of option about budget airbnb Singapore home but this unit is absolutely perfect. Here I’m gonna share some benefits if you stay in this home:
- 7 Eleven convenient store is just 70 meter
- Bus stop is just in front of the 7 Eleven
- Tasty local restaurant and fresh fruits seller is about 50 meter
- 500 meter from Dakota MRT station
- 5 minutes bus ride (bus number 35, 40, and 135) from Paya Lebar MRT station
