How To Get There

How to get there? Singapore? Of course directly from your country LoL… kidding. Singapore as a country and city is so small. You can easily go to every place by mass rapid train.  It is fast, easy, clean, and one of the best MRT in the world. This MRT has different color for different line. So, make sure yourself about where you want to go, read the line (and the color), insert your money, and then click, and click, and click the touchscreen machine, and gotcha!! You got a ticket 🙂
