If you can plan for your own tickets and air fare.... which are quite standard items... but hotels in Singapore are charging almost 3 times the regular price for one night stay. The price can range from SIN$250 and above. Hotels are also offering certain attractive packages just for the races.

In Singapore... interest in the F1 Race is not catching up with the people here yet. During a Street Poll only 39% are excited about F1 Race coming to Singapore. 84% thinks that Singapore should host the F1 Race. However, it is really pathetic to find out that on 28% knows the exact date of the F1 Night Race in Singapore. 14% Knows it is this month only, and 58% does not know when it is going to be held. It may take a while for such a major Formula One Race to catch the attention of those living in the city state in Singapore.

Just for your information.... I heard the 4 or 5 star hotels in Johor Bahru are quite fully booked for the SIngapore Grand Prix. Room rates are about $300 per night, but still cheaper compared with the same class of hotels in Singapore. It is definitely a good spill over to our neighbours.
