The infrastructure and transit system here is fantastic. My main way to get around is on the MRT. It usually costs a dollar or less to go one way (and is free if you get off before 7:30AM). Cabs and Uber are also a great option – very affordable and easy to get. However, if it’s raining, plan on waiting at least 5-10 minutes for one because everyone else is thinking the same thing as you!
One thing I need to remember: no eating or drinking in the station or on the train (you can be fined if you do). This is probably why it’s so clean! The stations are spotless and have no smell which is just another benefit to how they run their public transportation.
