CURRENCY
Singapore dollar (SGD/S$) is used in Singapore.
Money changing services can be found not only at Singapore Changi Airport but most shopping centres around the island.  Automated teller machines (ATMs) located everywhere in Singapore accept most of the main credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

MOBILE PHONE
Singapore’s international dialling code is +(65).
While in Singapore, and if you have international roaming service on your cell phone, you don’t have to dial +(65) as it will automatically connect you to the local numbers here.

NO SMOKING
We don’t want you to get fined (maximum of SGD$1,000 may be imposed on first-time offenders), so here’s a gentle reminder for our friends who smoke.
Besides air-conditioned areas such as shopping centres, restaurants, entertainment outlets and cinemas, smoking is also an offence on the SMRT (Singapore Mass Rapid Transit system), public buses, taxis and in lifts.

The smoking ban has now been imposed on public eateries and within a five-metre radius from most building entrances, except for allocated smoking areas that are clearly marked with bright yellow paint.

NEARBY SHOPPING & DINING
Just a hop, skip and a jump away, The Cathay is a youth shopping mall located at Handy Road that promotes design, arts and culture with an eclectic mix of entertainment, retail and leisure.
