The most convenient transportation from the Airport to the city is by taxi. If this is your first time in Singapore, this is also the most recommended mode of transport. Taxi services are convenient and reasonably priced in Singapore. On arrival, please follow the signs to the official taxi queue. The taxi journey is approximately 30 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Most taxi drivers speak English. Tipping is not expected.

Taxis are metered and fares start from S$3.20, depending on the type of taxi boarded. The one-way taxi fare from the airport to the recommended conference hotels should cost S$25.00 at most. For trips originating from the airport, there is a surcharge of S$3.00-S$5.00.

A list of possible additional surcharges can be found posted inside all taxis, some of which are given in the table below:
