Are you planning a trip to Singapore?
Before you buy travel insurance for your trip to Singapore, there are a few things to consider:
- The cost of your trip - If you have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, it’s important to know that you can get your money back
- The activities you might be partaking in while you are away - InsureandGo include over 50 adventure activities automatically, so you’ll probably be covered, but it’s best to check before you take part. If you’re planning anything more extreme, we can offer you extra cover. Just give us a call on the number above
- How much medical coverage you have - No one wants to think about getting ill or having an accident abroad but, unfortunately, it does happen
- And don’t forget to check the latest travel advice for Singapore from the FCO
Did you know that...?
- The gigantic Open Ocean tank at the S.E.A Aquarium in Singapore holds 50,000 fish and marine animals, all viewable through an appropriately giant acrylic panel, 36m wide by 8.3m high.The effect is meant to be like standing on the ocean floor!
- Singlish is widely spoken in Singapore, a patois of English mixed with Malay and Chinese. If you don't understand some Singlish, say "Catch no ball!" The opposite of "jackpot" in Singlish is "claypot" - a total loss! Here ends the dictionary.
- Raffles Hotel is the most famous place to spend the night in Singapore. It's where the Singapore Sling cocktail was invented and a tiger, reputedly Singapore's last, was shot in the hotel's bar. The two events are apparently unconnected.
- There's not a lot of meat on a shark's head, but Singaporean foodies know that. What they enjoy is steaming one up, drizzling on a sweet soy-sesame sauce and sucking on the gelatinous cartilage and fat.
- Chew gum all you like in Singapore! The only problem is, you're not allowed to bring any in and its sale is banned except for medicinal reasons from a dentist or pharmacist. Gum-wielding vandals and litter louts caused the ban in 1992.
- Good news! It's really unlikely that you'll be fined for not flushing the toilet in Singapore. Yes, there's a fine for failing to flush - but most new loos are fitted with automatic flush sensors.
- Let it all out at Speakers' Corner. Not in London, but the one that opened at Singapore's Hong Lim Park in 2000 as a "free speech area". OK, you do have to register before speaking, and be a citizen or permanent resident of Singapore. But go for it!
