Singapore is one of Southeast Asia’s largest aviation hubs, and the easiest way to enter Singapore is by air. Changi International Airport is Singapore’s main airport, and has won accolades for being the best airport in the world. There are direct services to Europe, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, North and South Americas, and South Africa. The airport is also home to Singapore’s national carrier, Singapore Airlines, its regional subsidiary, SilkAir, and various other low cost carriers like Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia and Scoot.

Two other major ports of entry are Singapore’s cruise ship ports – the Singapore Cruise Centre and the Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore – and the land crossings linked to Peninsular Malaysia – the Causeway and the Second Link.

Within the city, affordable, efficient and reliable public transport options such as buses, trains (called the Mass Rapid Transit), and taxis are readily available. The extensive public transport networks criss-cross the island, making getting around the city a breeze.
