Please don’t forget your insurance! It’s compulsory to have travel insurance on our trip. Please bring details of your travel insurance along with you to the pre-departure briefing. In the event of an accident, we may need to contact your insurance company on your behalf, so we will need the insurance company’s name and phone number, as well as your policy number. Please make sure your insurance offers ‘Bad Weather or Natural Disaster Coverage’. Please fill out our online emergency contact and insurance form:

Don’t forget your passport

Have you sent us your passport details? The Dragon Trip needs your passport copy to book accommodation in advance of your trip.

Do I need a visa?

Short answer: No, you don’t! Most nationalities do not need a visa to enter Singapore, as long as your passport is valid for a minimum of 6 months after entering the country. You can find out more about your individual requirements on your embassy or government website. Upon arrival, everybody will be asked to fill out an entry form – you may do so the day before heading to Singapore, to save some time upon arrival. The form can be found on this webpage (choose individual submission):

Top Tips from The Dragon Trip

Try saying that tongue twister really fast.

On the weather: 

  • Singapore has a tropical rainforest climate characterized by high humidity, abundant rainfall, and consistent temperatures throughout the year. 
  • The average temperature is 31°C at daytime and 24°C at night. 

On how to travel sustainably: 

  • Packing as light as possible keeps your carbon footprint low. We recommend 10-15kg, especially as you are expected to carry your own luggage. 
  • Use local laundry services. This money goes straight into the local community, and is available in most of our hostels.  
  • Pack a reusable water bottle.  

Stay connected: 

  • The Dragon Trip will invite you to a WhatsApp group chat before the tour starts, to keep in touch with you and the rest of your group. 
  • This is a great app to stop yourself from getting lost! You can download it to your phone for free.  
  • Bring electronic products at your own risk. Some customers choose to travel with iPhones, tablets and laptops, but although theft is rare on The Dragon Trip there is petty crime in some areas we visit. 
  • Download the taxi app GRAB, an Uber-like app that you can use to book taxis online and pay in cash. It’s useful and safe. 

Food & Drink: 

  • There will be a great night out on The Dragon Trip, and please remember to always drink within your limits. Never journey home by yourself at night, and never leave another person in the group alone. Always follow the legal drinking age limit, which in Singapore is 18. 
  • Drugs are illegal. If our guides see you committing any crime while traveling with us, they are obliged to report to Head Office and to the police, so please don’t put them in that position! 
  • The food is delicious throughout Singapore, and you won’t be able to get enough of it. Try anything and everything possible. Your guide will be able to recommend all of the best spots. 

Pack patience: 

  • You may meet many people from lots of different backgrounds and cultures on this trip. You may have different opinions or ways of doing things. Treat everyone how you wish to be treated and remember to work together as a group. 
  • Please bear in mind that Singapore has it’s own unique culture that at times can be very different to your home country. Some systems or ways of doing things which you may take for granted back home aren’t necessarily the same, so please be patient. Sometimes things don’t run like they may back home, despite our best efforts. 

Navigating a new culture: 

  • Be respectful of local culture and dress appropriately at any temples or religious sites. You may need to cover your shoulders, wear longer trousers and go barefoot. 
  • Be polite and kind.

No matter where you are or what you do, safety always comes first. We conduct our own health and safety checks but sometimes things happen that our out of our control.
