    WHATS THE COST?

    The Singapore dollar (SGD$) is the basic monetary unit in Singapore. Paper currency comes in denominations (values) of $2, $5, $10, $50, $100, $1000 and $10,000. Coins com in denomi-nations of $.01, $.05, $.10, $.20, $.50 and $1.

    Just like in any other big city, you should not carry a large amount of cash around with you in Singapore. If it is lost or stolen, it is very unlikely that it will be covered by your insurance policy. It is much safer to have your money in the form of travelers checks. You will need about $200-$300 SGD of spending money a week.
