What do I need to know about Singapore and Kuala Lumpur before I travel?



October is a desirable time to visit Singapore; the southwest monsoon season is officially over, and the northeast monsoon season won’t start for another month. During the day, temperatures may rise to 31°C (about 88°F). At night the lows drop to a comfortable 24°C (about 75°F). Storms may occur in the evening, with sudden and heavy showers, but they often last for a short time only.


The best way to get around is either by taxi, bus, or train. Singapore’s mass rapid transit (MRT) system is probably the fastest way to get around the city. The extensive rail network means most of Singapore’s key attractions are within walking distance from an MRT station. The bus system has an extensive network of routes covering most places in Singapore and is the most economical way to get around, as well as being one of the most scenic.


Singapore’s official currency is the Singapore dollar (SGD). Malaysia’s official currency is the Malaysian ringgit (MYR).

Throughout the conference site, rates are given in the currency in which they will be paid. Conference registration payments are posted in US Dollars (USD), as you will pay your conference fees to CTBUH. Hotel room rates are listed in Singapore dollars (SGD) or Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) as you will pay these rates to the hotelier in Singapore and/or Kuala Lumpur, as a room deposit and upon departure from your hotel.
