Traveling from San Francisco to Singapore
San Francisco International Airport Information
The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).
Parking at San Francisco International Airport
San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.
Ground Transportation Information
A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.
Restaurant Options at the Airport
The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates. Have a great flight to your final destination, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com the next time you're looking for cheap flights from San Francisco.
Flights to Singapore
Singapore features delicious local cuisine with business amenities and entertainment options to fit all tastes. Orbitz.com can help find cheap flights to Singapore. Flights into the city arrive at the Changi Airport, which is approximately 10 miles from the city-state's main trading center. The airport provides air travel to major locations in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. Major available include Singapore Airlines, Air Canada and Air France.
Getting Around the City-State
Public buses provide access to the city proper, and typically cost less than $2 a trip. Travelers looking to go to the Changi Business Park or the city's main light rail station can take a free shuttle available at the airport's main lobby check-in counter. Private car rental locations are also available at the lobby, but prices vary greatly based upon factors including previous driving history, age, insurance coverage and vehicle type desired. Many hotels offer free shuttle services, and Orbitz.com can help you book accommodations with properties that can make moving around in the city-state easy.
Weather in Singapore
Singapore enjoys a tropical climate. The temperatures rarely fall below 76 degrees Fahrenheit or rise above 81 degrees at any time of the year. Rain and thunderstorms are common at any time, and forest fires from nearby refuges and wild areas can cause dense haze intermittently. Visitors should dress for warm weather and bring rain gear such as galoshes or umbrellas.
Attractions and Points of Interest
Singapore boasts a rich cultural history stretching back tens of thousands of years. Ancient artifacts and colonial buildings are visible at the Bras Basha area on the Singapore River, and traditional foods mixed with influences found all over Asia are available at stands and restaurants dotting the district. The Bukit Timah Natural Reserve offers visitors access to more plant species available in the entirety of North America. Let Orbitz.com book your cheap flights to Singapore along with accommodation at properties near your favorite attractions or points of interest.
