Bonus tip: If you’re heading to Singapore from overseas, download the MyICA app and fill up the arrival card a few days early so you have a smooth entry into the Lion City.

Playing Tourist & Swift-tivities

Singapore is full of wonders, and while you’re here for Taylor Swift’s epic Eras Tour, why not indulge in some city exploration? Check out the excitement of world-class attractions like Universal Studios and the iconic Singapore Flyer.

Don’t miss the chance to strike a pose at Haji Lane’s Eras tour-themed photo studio, capturing moments you’ll cherish for a lifetime. And envision sharing these tales with your future children, recounting the magic of the Eras Tour! Looking to mingle with fellow Swifties pre-show? Head over to Adventure Cove Waterpark at Resorts World Sentosa for a poolside bash, serenaded by Taylor’s enchanting melodies as you bond with newfound friends.

Don’t worry, Singapore offers budget-friendly options too. Explore the enchanting Gardens By The Bay or embark on a scenic stroll along the 11-kilometre MacRitchie Nature Trail – a wilderness experience you won’t soon forget!

Seamless Shopping Experience

Bonus tip: Haji Lane is a treasure trove of unique stores, but when it comes to shopping, diversify your payment methods to avoid unnecessary fees. Opt for local currency when using your bank card abroad, and beware of inflated exchange rates. 

Research nearby ATMs for the best rates, steering clear of pricey airport fees. Consider going cashless with a prepaid card like Wise, linked to your digital wallets for hassle-free transactions.

Swapping Friendship Bracelets

The tradition of swapping handmade bracelets among Swifties is legendary, symbolising love and serving as a cherished keepsake from what promises to be an unforgettable night.

Hit up local craft stores for supplies and get ready to spread the Swiftie love! And while you’re at it, rally your squad to rehearse fan chants and concert rituals, ensuring you’re all set to ignite the atmosphere with your enthusiastic shouts and melodic harmonies!

Bonus tip: Before you head to the National Stadium, be sure to review their bag, camera, and water policies to avoid any last-minute hiccups. You wouldn’t want anything to dampen your concert excitement!

One, two, three, let’s go Swifties!

Armed with your carefully chosen outfit and sweet friendship bracelets, it’s time to make your grand entrance at the highly anticipated Eras Tour in absolute style!

Ditch the hassle of taxis and crowded streets by opting for the MRT – simply hop off at the aptly named Stadium station, conveniently located near the venue. Navigating Singapore’s public transport system is a breeze, especially with handy tools like Google Maps or local apps like MyTransport.SG. 

For newcomers to the Lion City, consider snagging a tourist pass tailored to your itinerary. And if you’ve got a NETS FlashPay MRT card from a previous Singapore escapade, ensure it’s topped up using the NETS app.

Bonus tip: When topping up your NETS FlashPay card via the app, keep an eye out for the nominal service fee, typically between 25 to 50 cents.

Be Wise with Wise!

To dodge pesky bank card fees and unfavourable exchange rates, opt for a Wise card to replenish your MRT card hassle-free. Plus, with the Wise card, you can seamlessly tap into the MRT system and explore Singapore with ease. No hidden fees and using the mid-market exchange rate means you’ll have more cash to splurge on precious Taylor merch!

The Eras Tour has set the world ablaze with excitement, and we trust this guide has equipped you with invaluable tips for your journey. Now, go forth and live out your wildest dreams!
