Buy your mobile SIM cards at convenience stores like 7-11 or Cheers: SingTel, M1, or Starhub. You will need your passport to purchase the SIM card. There is also public and free Wifi but connection may be spotty.
Singapore MRT can get crowded especially during weekends.
Go to the "Passenger Service" and ask how to buy a temporary MRT card that you can topup with cash. This avoids queueing too long for per-trip-cards. Taxis are cheap when shared. Max 4 passengers. Download these apps: Grab or Comfort Delgro.
Weekends are very busy. Expect long queues at Sentosa Express station at Vivo City mall.
Sentosa Express (train) only opens at 7am and the queue to buy tickets can get very long. Our opening ceremony starts early, dont miss it! Last trip getting out of Sentosa is 10pm.
All cars/taxis getting in Sentosa will need to pay a flat fee regardless of how many passengers. It can also get busy at the gantries, so plan well!
