Babes in Singapore.....

I will be travelling to Singapore in a few weeks en-route to Australia. I have a few days stopover and will be travelling with my 3 month old daughter. I'm concerned about travelling in taxis in Singapore with a child restraint for my daughter. I'm not keen to bring mine from Europe as I don't believe it will be suitable and I already have a child restraint organised for the Australian holiday. So, do they have taxi's with Child restraints/baby capsules in Singapore? If not, can you hire a baby seat/capsule for a few days and where from? Any suggestions or information would be most welcome.

If anyplace in Asia requires these and/or has these available, its Singapore, land of rules. Have you asked your hotel if they can arrange to rent or otherwise get one for you?
You might contact the taxi companies. Telephone numbers are below (could not find websites):

? CityCab Cash Bookings - Tel: (65) 6552 2222
? CityCab Credit Card Bookings / Premier Cabs - Tel: (65) 6553 8888
? Comfort CabLink - Tel: (65) 6552 1111
? Comfort Premier Cabs - Tel: (65) 6552 2828
? TIBS Skytrek Bookings / Premier Cabs - Tel: (65) 6555 8888

The above info is from the website of the Singapore Tourism Board, I clicked on "trip Planner" and then "Getting Around" and scrolled down to taxis.

You might want to contact the Tourism Board with your question: [email protected]. (This is for questions from the US, but I couldn't find a European contact address.) Or go to the above website and click on "Contact Us"

Cicerone gave great leads - you may also want to check - it's a website for expats in Singapore and you may be able to get an answer there.

Please do post back with what you find - I'm due in July and we travel quite a bit in Asia, so your results would be helpful!

Good luck!
