    Anyone had a stopover ~ Singapore

    Hi all :cute: Has anyone done the stopover in Singapore & if so, where did you stay & how much did it cost? :wideeyed: We are seriously thinking about booking 2 rooms at the transit hotel for 2 blocks of 6 hours Also, is there anything else I need to know or any advice you can give me? :wubclub:
  4. i know this is probably a daft question but, we are emigrating to sydney in october. flying with singapore airlines. when we check in at heathrow, obviously the cases go on the plane, but when we stopover in singapore for a couple of days before flying on to sydney. what happens to our cases. we dont obviously want them with us. our travel agent said we just tell the checkin desk at heathrow that we dont want our cases until we get to sydney. am just worried about where they will be sent while we are on our stopover. am i just being daft or what. nicola
  5. Hi We are heading over to Perth shortly... yippee and were planning on stoping over in Singapore as I dont fancy flying all the way with our two girls who are under 2 years old! Its mind boggling searching all the hotels and was wondering if anybody could recommend a "toddler" friendly hotel where we could stay for 3 nights that isnt too expensive. Somewhere not too far from airport would be great. Have looked at Sentosa resort etc but prices seem very expensive - a few hundred a night! We are flying with Singapore airlines but doesnt look as if they do their stopover deals at the moment...any ideas welcome...thanks :wub:
  6. Hi everyone, We have finally been granted our visa this morning yeepee!! After 2 1/2 years wait! Just wondering If anyone as had a stopover in Singapore on the way to emigrate and If so do you lose your baggage allowance? Were hopefully going in November and stopover in Singapore for a few day before arriving at Perth - I thought I heard on PIO that you can leave your baggage at the Airport in Singapore and collect it on your way back to Oz and not lost your Allowance is this true or has anyone been in the same boat! It would be great to hear back cheers The Tattams!!:laugh::idea:
  7. I need some help! (Well, a lot really, but that's another story...) We have to go back to the UK in July - can only spare 3 weeks but really don't want to come straight back without at least having a look around the place we touch down en route. Airline choice is really Malaysian (KL), Cathay (HK) or Singapore Air (Singapore). I know Singapore seems to have a lot to do in, say 48 hours, but what about Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur? Is it worth paying a little bit more for an airline that touches down in Singapore as opposed to one of the others? Has anyone stopped for a night or two in any of the three above places, and have any suggestions of things "not to be missed", places to stay, eat, etc (we have two teenagers - 14 and 16, so almost human - sometimes - but still big kids at heart!)? Think that's it for the moment - any help or advice gratefully received before I head to the Travel Agent.
  8. We are flying over at the end of November. My husband is a wheelchair user and we are staying for a couple of nights in Dubai and Singapore to split the journey up. Has anybody stopped over in these two places. We need a hotel that is in a district where I can walk to facilities. I know the train in Singapore is not w'chair friendly and it is best to use the taxis. I have been to Singapore a couple of times quite a number of years ago and at that time, I would not have been looking at it as being conducive to access with a w'chair. Thanks

    Hello, can anyone recommend a good family hotel in Kuala Lumpur for a few days stopover. We would need a fridge and kettle in the room! Cheers
  10. we have booked our flights to melbourne with singapore airlines and this involves spending 11 hours from morning to night in singapore with two children aged 5 and 7. any advice on things to do to kill the time would be greatly appreciated (the singapore sling in rafflles is already factored in )
  11. Hi Because of our visa type we're allowed 50kg of baggage each when we fly to Australia, however if we choose to have a stopover with Singapore airlines do we not get this allowance? I'm sure i've read on a thread ages ago that if you break up the journey you lose the 50kgs, any help greatly appreciated! x
  12. I have been looking into a stopover in Singapore on our way to QLD. Previously we stayed at the Shangrila Hotel on Sentosa / Singapore and it was great for the kids. Unfortunately when we go for good this time its shut for refurbishment. Looking elsewhere in Singapore we couldn't find anything suitable for young children. My travel agent, Kate Skaithe at NYS Travel in York has found a superb alternative. We now are going Heathrow - Singapore with Singapore Airways on the A380 and transfer in the international lounge to a Penang flight and do customs only once! We get picked up and taken to a beachside hotel, Shangrila Penang / Malaysia - Golden Sands for 5 days and then back to Singapore and on to Brisbane. For 6 of us this is coming in at less than £5K. PM me for Kates details She has always got great deals for us in the past and has always been better than the internet or high street for us.

    Singapore stopover hotels?

  16. Just wondering what a decent amount of time is for a stopover en route to Aus. Ive got a 5 yr old and 2.5 yr old twins and want enough time for them to run around and stretch their legs, but not too long that they start getting bored and life becomes difficult. Ive got two quotes so far, one has a stopover for 2.5hr hours the other 4 hrs. Just wondered what you think and how long you had at the airport? Thanks Angelcake
  17. Did anyone use Malaysia as a stopover? Seriously considering this as an option as Malaysian Airlines are the cheapest that I have found for a one-way flight. It's them or Singapore Airlines I think.

    19hr stopover at singapore

    Has anyone stopped over for 19 hrs in singapore airport waiting for there connecting flight. we have read on this forum that singapore airport is great for a stopover, so thought we would take advantage of the biggest gap in connecting flight possible wich is 19 hrs. What happens to your main luggage? do we need to collect it and keep it with us? or does it stay in a hold somewhere for it to be loaded on the connecting flight. many thanx
  19. Hi, Will be travelling to Perth in October and was wondering if anyone could recommend a hotel to stay in Singapore with my wife and two-year old, Don't want to break the bank but all opinions welcome please. Thanks, this forum is great.
  20. Hi Just looking at Singapore airlines website and noticed great offer for stopovers. I think I may be having a :goofy: moment as not sure how to go about booking. Do you book in two separate stages from Manch to Sing then Sing to Brisb or just one booking from Manch to Brisbane then add in your stopover?!?!?! Thankyou for any advice!! A confused Dugong
