When we visited Singapore a couple of years ago, we had already been on the road for over 6 months. By the time we arrived to this modern and exciting city in South East Asia, we were worn out and exhausted. We spent our time hanging out in the malls, drinking coffee and enjoying the air conditioning. We never left the downtown core.

Our cash was running low and Singapore Hotels were soaring high. We only managed to spend a few days walking around and we missed so much. If only we knew about the discount hotel booking sites of today we may have been able to squeeze in a few more days to experience everything that Singapore has to offer.
