Maximizing the Tourist Pass

If you are using the 3 days pass for $20, that will be an average of $6.66 or 5 bus and train rides per day. If coming from the airport, you will be able to make the most of the tourist pass going to your hotel and then to the tourist spots you have planned for the day. If you are staying for 4 to 5 days in singapore, plan out to return the tourist spot on the 4th day and buy another 1-2 days tourist pass. You will just have to pay separately for the fare going to the MRT Station from your hotel by topping up the tourist pass as a regular ezlink card or use your debit / credit card with paywave (NFC) / Apple Pay.

The validity of the card is up to the last train or bus for the day.

If you are thinking whether to use the train or bus to go to your destination, check the bus routes first as some buses will pass several stops before reaching the destination. Meanwhile, the trains are split from 1-2 kms and there may not be a nearby train station from your destination. It is best to combine the train and buses for maximum efficiency and to save time.
