Car Rentals

In Singapore, tourist are allowed to drive around the country for a span of 12 months (1 year) and as usual they must carry a license and a passport. However, they avoid to rent a car. But because it is more convenient to tour the metropolis using own vehicles, foreigners tend to rent a car for their convenience.

Taxis

During normal fare hours, taxi fares are quite cheap but taxis in Singapore are relatively inexpensive during normal fare hours, but unluckily those hours are only limited. During peak hours (morning and evening) fare rates is increased by 35% and for people who wants to tour the metropolis during dawn, just prepare for a 50% increase in taxi fare rate.  The only thing that makes the taxi service is Singapore cheap, is to impose a metered taxi; however, this is not necessary because most Singaporeans do have cars and they do not usually ride a taxi.

However, Singapore’s climate is also affected by global climate change.
