Gojek recommends: travelling on a budget
Gojek recommends: travelling on a budget
18 Jul 2022

Beep beep, are you planning for a last-minute trip? Whether you are a uni student waiting for school to start or someone who’s squeezing in a trip over the weekend – start your planning with Gojek’s very own budget travel guide.


Krabi, Thailand (4D3N)

The beautiful seaside town of Krabi is just a 1.5 hour flight from Singapore. This underrated destination is home to beautiful beaches, pristine villas, and scrumptious food as far as your noses can smell. Bonus: it’s not nearly as crowded as other beach destinations like Phuket, and you can also extend your trip to the nearby Phi Phi islands.


Eat: Head to Krabi’s night markets for a plethora of local food fare. Dishes include wok-fried pad thai and fresh papaya salad – both very easy on the wallet.

Stay: Booking an AirBnB beach villa can be as affordable as $40 a night. If you’re looking to meet people from around the globe, try a budget hostel! 


Cheat code: Book a Gojek to/from Changi Airport using the code “GOAIRPORT” for $5 off.


Batam, Indonesia (3D2N)

Take a short 40-minute ride from Singapore to Batam. This city by the water offers fresh and affordable seafood – along with local dishes like sate padang and martabak. After a good feast, unwind at a spa. And if you don’t want to leave your bed… you can always order GoFood on the Gojek app!


Getting there: Batamfast Ferry, Majestic Ferry, Horizon Ferry, Sindo Ferry

Eat: Rezeki Seafood, Restoran Sederhana, Sup Ikan Yong Kee, A2 Foodcourt 

Stay: Radisson Golf and Convention Center, Four Points by Sheraton Batam



Cheat code: Book your GoCar trip to/from the ferry terminal at Harbourfront Center using the code “GOTOMALLS”. It’s $3 off for any ride from 10AM–10PM daily!


Staycation, Singapore (2D1N)

Got an expired passport? Can’t get down to the ICA in time? Stay in for a staycation by the airport instead! YOTELAIR in Jewel is cozy, affordable, and won’t make you feel homesick. Bonus: no weight limit on your luggage ;)


Cheat code:  Book a Gojek to/from Changi Airport using the code “GOAIRPORT” for $5 off.
