Buy starhub happyroam prepaid or check qoo10 yokoso sim card but former cheaper.

Cons of changi router is must remember to collect before going inside when you depart and return before leaving airport when you land. I know ppl who either forgot to collect or nearly forgot to return when their grab ride ard arrived and chiong to return.

Is the month of May a good month to visit Hokkaido? Thinking of planning a trip in May so that I can visit the Shizuoka Hobby show also with my family. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Just to confirm, starhub happyroam consist of $18 local data + $15 top up for overseas usage. So, if i want get this purely for Jap trip, total cost minimum is $33?

Depends la whether individual sim or mifi..If travelling as a couple, mifi will work but if with friends, better to individual sim unless confirm + chop both stick together..

I reserve changi mifi for my oct trip at $38 for 10 days..Share by wife and me so pretty okay.

Or get 2gb for $12 for 20days.

It's how you chose to spend the $15 to cater to your own needs.

Changi wifi rental is good if you plan to share data with family. But if wanna walk seperate places overseas, good to have at least 2 sets of starhub prepaid.

Changi one abit wasted, have to pay 2 extra days (going there and coming back) for nth.
Plus the Changi wifi units were quite old. Batt may not last a whole day and heats up when hunting for signal in the mountains. This also means one extra device to charge every night.
