Which bus should I take where to pay for the ticket? btw I will have one 26'' sized luggage and a backpack with me. or it will be better to take taxi instead? what will the cost in that case?

Yes, you may take bus service 36 from the Basement of Terminal 2. You may pay cash (pay exact amount as the bus captain does not provide any change for large dollar notes) or use the EZLink card. If you take the bus you must alight at the bus stop behind Orchard MRT station Exit B.

Taxi from airport to Orchard Parksuites will cost about $25 to $30 due to peak hour 8am Mon-Fri. If you arrive on a Sat or Sun, it will be slightly less at about $20.

You may also like to consider taking the Airport Shuttle if you are a solo traveller or even the MRT.

Hi,

The airport shuttle costs $9/pax while the bus fare for service 36 is about $1.85 (EZlnk Card). To pay cash, you must have the exact change as the bus captain does not issue change.

Take note there is no designated space for luggage on Bus 36.

I just had a look at WTS List of Downtown Hotels and Orchard Parksuites is not listed. You may have no other choice but to take bus 36 or a taxi.

You can consider taking the shuttle to a nearby hotel eg Mandarin Orchard and then walk to Orchard Parksuites.

I don't recommend public commute since Monday 8am will be morning rush hour. Orchard Road won't be as congested yet, but it will be en route especially at the City Hall/Suntec City areas.

Arrived in Singapore today and was orginally going to take a taxi but came across this thread and saw the Shuttle option so went for that and it was super convenient, took like only 20 mins and was 9 SGD. The lady at the service desk was very helpful as was driver. Just have to wait inside and he comes in to get everyone and you should him the receipt which tells him which hotel you're going to.

You can use Grab. Get a car that will cost you less than S$10. Anything more than that is a cheat and lie. In fact, if you show the driver your passport, you can also get the ride for free. Because we love people from overseas.

Everything is free in Singapore.
