Singapore attracts tourists from many parts of the world, and the perception that a vacation there is extremely expensive is not always true. With careful planning, cautious budgeting, and foresight, you can explore Singapore without breaking the bank.

A must-visit place in Singapore is Lau Pa Sat Food Hawker Centre. This is not only because it is one of the most popular food markets in the country but also because you can buy a hearty meal for as little as S$5, OutlookTraveller writes.

Here visitors are offered a variety of local specialties under one roof. You will find numerous stalls selling local specialties inside. You can safely enjoy a popular barbecue dish on the street right behind the market. Every evening, the road is closed to traffic and there are many tables at which you can taste the food.

It is not necessary to use a taxi to travel in Singapore. The country has a widely developed mass rapid transit or MRT. This is one of the best ways to get around the country. Tourists can purchase a contactless smart card or just buy a ticket for one trip. MRT is fast and cheap and covers a wide network of destinations for a very reasonable price.

If you're on a tight budget, you can visit attractions for free without standing in lines. One such attraction is the Singapore Botanic Gardens. And it's almost free. The National Orchid Garden does require an entrance fee, but other than that, the rest of the garden is free and open daily from 5 a.m. to midnight. The entrance fee to the National Orchid Garden can cost S$5.14.

For inexpensive shopping, tourists are advised to visit Bugis Street, where most things cost between S$5 and S$10. Another alternative for inexpensive shopping is the Mustafa Centre. The convenience stores are great for buying souvenirs and you can get a lot of things from gifts to food for a small budget.

It is not always necessary to stay in expensive hotels to have a good vacation. Although Singapore has a large share of luxury hotels, there are many budget options. You can stay in hostels, guesthouses, or budget hotels. Many neighbourhoods offer affordable accommodations without compromising on comfort or cleanliness.

Alternatively, you can research accommodation options on Airbnb or Couchsurfing to find more budget-friendly places to stay. Keep an eye out for special offers and promotions, which are common in Singapore's competitive hospitality industry.
