3 Useful Apps that I Used When I Travelled to Singapore

Last January 20 - 23, my family along with my relatives went to Singapore for a 4-day trip to celebrate my aunt's 60th birthday. I have been to Singapore three years ago with them also (except for my Mom and my sister) and the place is still familiar to me. At that time, I just relied our travel to my cousins because I was a first-timer and recently turned 21 at that time (such a baby). This time my Mom and my sister trusted and relied to me because my sister and I managed to travel alone to South Korea (without our parents). Thank you! :) 

Moving forward, I want to share the apps that I used to survive on our 4-day SG trip.


Explore Singapore MRT (left), Google Maps (center), Uber (right)

1. Explore Singapore MRT map - The app was developed by Explore Metro and was recommended by Lonely Planet and CNN. The app has a street maps of every station and a route planner to check what stations to take and how many stations to get there.

What I love from the app is you can check if even in offline mode, which means without internet connection. How cool, right? Internet connection in SG is a bit pricey though. I have saved a few bucks without getting lost. :)

Got this screenshots from App Store:


You can download the app in App Store and Google Play.

2. Google Maps - The app was developed by Google Inc. I guess everyone is familiar with this app so I won't elaborate it more. If the app mentioned above helps to find the MRT routes, this app helps me to check the whole place (around the area stores, hotels, landmarks, etc.). It is very useful. :)

You can download the app in App Store and Google Play.

3. Uber - The app was developed by Uber Technologies, Inc. There's no need to wait for a taxi because with Uber, you can book a ride hassle-free.

Note: Uber in SG is a bit pricey compared in Manila but it's safe.

You can download the app in App Store and Google Play.

How about you? Did you use any apps when you travelled here? Share your experience.
