Singapore Sightseeing in Style: Maxicabs and Airport Transfers
Upon arriving at Changi Airport, visitors to Singapore will find they have several options for getting to their hotel or destination. From taxis to rental cars to buses, choices are available. But by reserving a maxicab, (a private limousine) ahead of time, travelers can ensure a timely pickup via a luxurious and spacious vehicle for up to 13 adults and their luggage.
Maxicabs, however, can be used for more than just Singapore airport transfers. They are available for point-to-point transfers and hourly use, as well, making them great for sightseeing at all the beautiful and exciting attractions around the city. And because maxicab rates are reasonable, they also make an affordable choice of transportation.
Reserve a maxicab for travel to the Sultan Mosque or National Museum of Singapore for a history lesson. Or to experience an adventure, plan a trip to Sentosa Island, where guests can interact with dolphins and butterflies, ride a zip line, take in a show or just walk along the beach.
Tourists can also spend the day at the Singapore Zoo, where the open concept permits the animals to roam freely. (Animals considered to be dangerous are kept in large glass enclosures for visitors’ protection). Night safaris are also offered at the zoo, allowing guests to view the animals in their most natural state.
For the best shopping and restaurants Singapore has to offer, head via maxicab to Orchard Road. Guests will find an array of shopping malls fitted with hundreds of stores to choose from, along with fantastic dining experiences, movie theaters and clubs.
Another can’t-miss attraction is the Singapore Flyer. Take a maxicab to this massive Ferris wheel which gives riders the opportunity to view the city from high in the sky.
Maxicab rates range from around $40 USD for a Mercedes Benz Vito (7-seater) to $112 USD for a Mercedes M Class, depending on the type of transfer.
