Singapore for kids
The Singapore Tourist Pass is a 1, 2 or 3-day pass that offers unlimited rides on public bus, MRT and LRT trains in Singapore. If you pick up a pass at the airport you can use it straight away on the metro. Ideal for those who plan to see as much as possible in a three day period via public transport. [Disclosure: I was sent a pass to test in Singapore.]
