Singapore is indeed an expensive country. Starting from the cost of living and luxury places there seems to make us bankrupt.
For backpackers who go on an economical trip, of course, they have to set a budget such as costs for hotel, meals, and transportation so they can enjoy a vacation without having too short of cash.
Even though many luxury tourist attractions can be visited in Singapore, it turns out that there are still free tourist attractions that are no less interesting to visit.
Here are 10 free places in Singapore that you can visit.
