AIRPORT TRANSFERS

Airport transfers are NOT provided by WCA and are NOT included in your conference fees.

It is strongly recommended that you take a taxi or use the services of MICE Neurol to get from Singapore Changi Airport to downtown hotels. You can also take a train, but it is not advisable because you must change trains along the route.

Public Taxi Service.  Very easy, clean, and convenient.  All drivers speak English (English is an official language of Singapore).  Approximate 25 mins during most traffic conditions.  Cost:  approx. SGD 25 (USD 20) per way.  Follow TAXI signs from the arrival hall to the Taxi Cue.

MICE Neurol.  This company is associated with this conference and provides private transportation and other services. They provide more luxurious transportation options which can be booked and paid directly to them by credit card at https://events.miceneurol.com/wca-feb-2017/arrival-transfer/Site/Register.

CHANGE MONEY. Be sure to have local currency (SGD 1.00 = USD 0.70). Taxi drivers will not accept payment in foreign currency.

WEATHER

March is the official end to the monsoon season and the weather becomes constantly warm with an average daily temperature of 27°C (about 81°F). Short periods of rain are possible on any day.  Please check Singapore weather forecast here.
