4 Accommodation Park Avenue Changi: We will be recommending the Park Avenue Hotel near Changi Airport as the base for our visiting WIC participants. During WIC 2014 we are keen to co-locate all our teams in the same premises in order to build on the collaborative knowledge-sharing dynamic of our event, as well for as ease of logistics: we are targeting Park Avenue for this purpose. The hotel is a short walk from the Expo MRT station and approx 25 mins walk to the ITE College East campus. During the event we expect to provide a shuttle bus service between hotel to site at the start and end of each day: information on this service will be shared in the lead-up to the event. The hotel rate during the event is approx. 130 per night. Our Delegate Relations Manager Grace Lung (see page 10 for contact information) will advise on group booking packages for the hotel following confirmation of team participation. Capri by Fraser Changi City Singapore: An alternative close by, this hotel offers studio apartments and is also located about 25 minutes to walk to ITE College East and 10 minutes to the nearest MRT station Expo (CG1). The hotel rate during the event is approx. 170 per night. WSF018_201401_Team_Guide Date: of 10

5 Transportation ITE College East Park Avenue Capri by Fraser MRT: Expo Traveling from Changi Airport to hotels From Changi Airport station (CG2), board the next available train on any of the two platforms and alight at Expo station (CG1). This short journey only takes about 3 minutes (1 station away). It is about 5 to 10 minutes to walk from Expo station (CG1) to Park Avenue and Capri by Fraser Changi City. To ITE College East, it takes about 12 minutes by foot from this MRT station. Traveling from hotels to venue The best way to travel to the venue from various hotels is by foot. 25 minutes from Park Avenue - Changi 25 minutes from Capri by Fraser Changi City Details regarding shuttle bus services to and from the site will be confirmed in the lead-up to the event. Other public transportation points around the venue Nearest MRT Station: Expo (CG1), East West Line Bus Services to ITE College East o SBS Transit: 31 (alight along Simei Ave.) o SBS Transit: 2 (alight along Upper Changi Road) o SBS Transit: 12, 24, 38 (alight along Upper Changi Road East) WSF018_201401_Team_Guide Date: of 10

6 Taxis Taxis in Singapore are reasonably priced and metered. In any taxi, a receipt must be issued upon request. The basic fare is between SGD 3.00 and 3.40 at flag-down (including the 1 st km), and SGD 0.22 every 400m thereafter. While working at WIC 2014, three local taxi companies which you can call when taxi service is required include: Comfort and CityCab: Premier Taxi: Prime Taxi: MRT The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is a rapid transit system forming the major component of the railway system in Singapore. If you would like to travel to the city from the venue or the hotel, the best way is to take the MRT from Expo station (East-West Line, green). Tickets are available for purchase at the MRT stations. SMRT website provides very useful information such as the travel time, number of stations, connection route and fair calculation: WSF018_201401_Team_Guide Date: of 10

7 More about Singapore Currency The Singaporean currency is Singapore dollar SGD or S$.

Voltage and Electrical Plug The voltage in Singapore is Volts. The electrical outlet and plug are as below. Food Given the diversity of ethnic culture, Singapore offers a wide range of variety when it comes to food. The Singaporean cuisine is influenced by Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Peranakan, and other Western cultures. Some of the most popular choices of food are chicken rice, chilli crab, char kway teow (flat rice noodles stir fried with soy sauce), and many more. Depending on where you go, most of the street food is very inexpensive around SGD to SGD or less for a meal. The ITE College East campus also offers heavily subsidised student canteen areas, fast food stores and convenience stores. Weather The climate in Singapore is generally hot and humid with no distinct seasons. Sudden, heavy rainfalls are common all year round. 33 C (92 F) during daytime, and 26 C (81 F) during the evening are average temperatures that can be expected in June, when the WIC takes place. Humidity can be expected to be around 90 95%. Note: The WIC site is outside, under the cover of a roof in the ITE College East amphitheatre. Suitable clothing is advised.
