Cheap Accommodation in Singapore?

Trips to some countries would be enjoyable, especially when we know what to do there. Travel to Singapore no longer a luxury, anyone can travel cheaply and easily.

Overseas travel to show tourist activities is no longer simply an additional activity, but has become a major requirement that done routinely.

Many things can be done while on this island country, but it would be a hassle when we want to find a cheap lodging, especially if the trip lasts for a long time. Is there any way out?

Indeed there are many lodgings with different kinds and types, star hotels, hostels, backpacker's inn, guest houses, to apartments spread in several key areas such as areas of Little India, Bugis, Katong, Orchard, Chinatown, Katong/Geylang, and western regions.

Hotel certainly convenient, but quite expensive and require a good plans order to finance the trip, there is an alternative staying in a hostel with low prices, with prices ranging from 12 to 50 Singapore dollars.

Available rooms consisting of single beds to dorm-bed (such as dormitories) with a capacity of up to 20 people. The services provided from a private air-conditioned rooms with bathroom inside or share rooms that are only using the AC or fan, with a separate bathroom outside.

What if we are traveling with the entire family or a gang with friends, often staying in hostels is less convenient. The solution is available, although the room and the bed is not as good as the hotel was an unoccupied apartment and left empty by their owners.

These apartments are located in a strategic area, close to the mall, and also traversed by public transport. Unlike the hotel or other lodging, apartment is a converted residence as a place of accommodation, especially for tourists who are not too concerned with services such as in a typical hotel.

Apartments have facilities like an inn, such as air-conditioned rooms, hot or cold water, kitchen, laundry, dining room, living room, and "sharing" bathroom, so that we can manage their own apartment.

Most rental apartments is the usual residence is modified in such a way as resembling an inn and run by a manager assisted by an aide with a fairly cheap rents, between 70 and 180 Singapore dollars.

Where we can find an apartment like this? Try to visit the Lucky Plaza Apartment in Orchard Road, a favorite because of its location near the MRT Station and shopping places in a very famous Orchard Road.

In addition to apartments in Orchard and surrounding areas there are still other alternatives, namely a rental house at once, not only per room, each 3-4 rooms, complete with living room, kitchen and yard.

Several other locations can be found rental apartments daily, like in the Chinatown area, as well as some other areas there is an ordinary house, condo, or apartment.

There is always the best way to enjoy travel, certainly by conducting a survey first.
