The city-state of Singapore offers some of the most eclectic and intriguing cuisine found anywhere in Asia, but if you can bring yourself to leave, cheap flights from Singapore booked through Orbitz.com depart from the Changi Airport, located approximately 10 miles from the city-state's main commercial district. The airport offers flights to destinations throughout Asia, Australia, North America and Europe. Airlines available include Singapore Airlines, Air Canada and Air France.
Changi Airport boasts bargain long-term parking garages with fees beginning at $0.04 per minute. These garages have a maximum daily fee of $20. Parking garages located closer to the terminal charge $2.40 per hour with a daily maximum of $58. Visitors picking up or dropping off passengers may have these fees waived by the airport if they are in the garage for less than 10 minutes.
Public buses provide the least expensive option for travel to the Changi Airport in Singapore. Bus services take about an hour and cost less than $2. The city also offers a free shuttle service from the Changi Business Park and Bedok light rail stations. These shuttles take about 30 minutes from each location to the airport. Private car rentals are also available at locations throughout the city with rates based on driver experience, insurance levels and car options. Orbitz.com can assist you with booking hotels nearby that offer free shuttle services to and from the airport.
The convenience stores found throughout the airport provide traditional Asian fare, unlike those in most western countries that offer only packaged snacks and gifts. International restaurants including Lacoste, Desigual and Coffee Kaki provide travelers with seated dining options or bistro-style coffees. When booking your tickets for cheap flights from Singapore, check the airport details on Orbitz.com to find even more dining options at Changi Airport, as new restaurants are constantly opening.
Whether you are Carnival-bound or planning to explore the vast canal network during the off-season, Orbitz.com has the cheap flights to Venice you need to make your romantic Italian dreams a reality. Flying into the Venice Marco Polo Airport will land you approximately 4.9 kilometers, or 8 miles, from the city center. This airport handles flights from over 40 airlines, including United Airlines, Delta Airlines, Finnair, British Airways, Alitalia, and Lufthansa.
After arriving at Venice Marco Polo Airport on your Orbitz.com-booked flight, you can take a water taxi, which costs 108 Euros for up to four passengers and drops you directly at your hotel. Another option is to take a water shuttle with scheduled stops at various destinations within Venice. Bus service is also available and drops passengers off at the bus terminal of Piazzale Roma. Alternately, the railway station of Venice Mestre, which connects Venice to other nearby cities and towns, is a short bus ride away.
Spring and fall are popular times to visit Venice because the weather during these seasons is mild and the skies generally clear and blue. Winters can be damp, cold, and windy, although the fog that often settles over the city makes for a magical atmosphere just in time for the mid-winter Carnival season. Late summers are hot and humid. Rainfall is prevalent year-round, so bring an umbrella.
Many visitors brave the winter weather in Venice to experience Carnival, the masked pre-Lenten festival. Carnival occurs on a different date each year, always culminating on a Tuesday in February or March. If you book your Orbitz.com Venetian vacation during spring or early summer, you'll be better able to enjoy long hours touring the city on a gondola or walking over the more than 400 bridges spanning the city's famous canals. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, check out the latest sales and cheap flights to Venice on Orbitz.com so you can get the most out of your vacation budget.
