Favorite thing: Our Favorite Thing About Singapore ----- FOOD!!!

Anyway, this tip is set up in answer to a forum question about parking at pasir ris and getting to the airport.

This tip set up is kinda strange as there is only this section here to 'pen down' the tip! Anyhow, back to the tip......our reply to the forum's post...

--- PARKING RATES ---

You can understand the parking rates from HDB's website - http://www.hdb.gov.sg/fi10/fi10204p.nsf/WPDis/Short-Term%20ParkingOverview?OpenDocument

And you could probably find a car park of your desire with this "Location of HDB Car Parks" map - http://www.hdb.gov.sg/bn22/bn22004p.nsf/SingaporeMap?OpenForm

Now let's do some maths here to see if this parking at HDB car park exercise is a better choice. [these are the stuff we can add to our 'trivial facts' ~:)]

Parking in HDB car park at $1/hr, 7am to 10.30pm [15.5hr] = S$15.50
Overnight parking in HDB car park S$2.00
Total cost of parking for 6 days = S$17.50 x 6 = S$105

Car parking at the airport = S$17.66 x 6 = S$105.96

Not much of a savings as you can see.

I suppose if you have a friend who lives in a condo, you could ask them for a favor and park there for free! :D

I read that parking at Changi Village is complimentary for in-house guest and they have a complimentary hourly shuttle to and from the airport.

Well, if you feel really really lucky, you could park along the road at Tanah Merah Kechil Rise like what the residents of the semi-detached houses and terrace houses would do. From there, walk to the Tanah Merah MRT and hop onto a train to the airport. For 2 days, I suppose it may be alright but if a car is parked there for 6 days, it will surely arouse some curiosity.

Anyhow, a question came to mind .....

How do you manage the car's battery charge for 6 days?

Extract from http://www.schleeter.com/long-term_storage.htm
"The electronics in modern cars can drain the battery in as little as 8-10 days. Tow companies make good money at airports from stranded drivers with drained batteries."

Good luck ;)

Fondest memory: We miss the convenience of Singapore's public transport and the availability of food around the clock.
