Resorts World Promotions for RTC Attendees
The event is nearly upon us. I’m excited as can be. Lets take a minute to talk about some issues that will be of interest to our attendees.
First off, Resorts world is offering a number of promotions to attendees of the event. If you are bringing your family, discounts are available for admission to Universal Studios, the Aquarium, waterpark and Dolphin Interaction programme. There are also discounts on F&B at selected locations and for Spa treatments. See the table below:
For our out of town guests, let me address a few concerns.
if you want to buy a prepaid simcard, there is a 7-11 in Resorts World that will sell them. If you want to get a prepaid dataplan, you may need to go to one of the local telco’s shops to purchase. All three (M1, Starhub, Singtel) have shops in Vivo City Shopping Mall which is across the bridge from Sentosa. You can walk it, there are travelators across the causeway. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PASSPORT TO BUY A SIMCHIP!
ATMs are everywhere and the take foreign cards without a hassle, though it may be a good idea to let you bank and credit card provider know you will be visiting Asia ahead of the trip. Sometimes they get skittish about overseas transactions. Of course there are many money changers as well if you want to bring cash.
Taxis are plentiful in Singapore, though not all of them take credit cards. None of them take Visa. Its best to ask before you get in, even if they have a sticker with the MC/AMEX logo in the window. Also if you are coming early/staying longer, or your family will be out exploring the island while you geek out, it is wise to grab an EZLINK stored value card. They are on sale in all MRT stations and can be used on all trains and busses to get around singapore. Lots of information here: http://www.mytransport.sg/content/mytransport/home.html
Yes, they speak english here…. but its special.
See y’all soon.
