10 Things to Do in Singapore Without Spending a Dime


Singapore isn’t cheap; it has some of the most expensive hotels, restaurants and attractions anywhere in Asia. Yet, it does have something for you, even if you aren’t well-heeled. I have always believed that the best things in life are free. No matter where you travel, there are always fun activities you can try without spending a dime. If you are a budget traveler who wants to discover the world, look for free activities to reach your travel goal. Singapore is a great place for budget travelers and here are ten free things you can do when visiting this fascinating destination.

1. Get fed for free

In the Buddhist tradition, temples usually offer free meals to the poor or simply, to anyone who asks. Typically, you only get a simple meal. The Singapore Buddhist Lodge on Kim Yam Road and the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Temple on Bright Hill Road, though, offer generous buffet-style vegetarian meals twice a day, with 8 different courses. So if you feel hungry, don’t hesitate to try out those meals. It’s one of the easiest ways to save on food when traveling.
