FICC 2018 will be held in the beautiful Garden City of Singapore. Singapore is a modern city-state known for her efficient policies and management in keeping up with advanced technology. This diamond-shaped island is the confluence of several major ethnic cultures in Asia, and simultaneously an international hub for residents and visitors from different corners of the world.
Singapore is a dynamic, multiracial and multicultural society. Singapore is where east meets west, a cosmopolitan melting pot with a unique identity. The signature trait of Singapore is its multi-cultural makeup. This diversity also translates into a unique mix of religions, languages, cultural traditions and cuisines.
Airport: Singapore is well-connected to key destinations around Asia and the Pacific, most of which are just a few hours’ flight away. With Singapore Changi Airport served by more than 100 airlines with over 6,300 weekly flights connecting to 210 cities in 60 countries worldwide, Singapore is the world’s gateway to Southeast Asia.
Taxis: Getting around by taxi is a common option as taxis are inexpensive and in abundance. In the Central Business District you can hail one from the road, in other areas there are designated taxi stands. App based taxis such as Uber and Grab are quite popular, switch on your location maps for smooth travel.
Metro: To get around town, the best option is the MRT system (Singapore Metro system). You can use the MRT System map. Also see: www.smrt.com.sg.
