    Question Buying a tripod in Singapore

    Hi guys,

    First post to the forum I have a five hour transfer in between flights at Changi. Will this be enough time to catch the metro over to the Funan Digital Life mall and get back to Changi, back through customs etc? Ive been wanting to buy a Sirui t1205x tripod and no stores here have stock so I cant buy it before I leave Australia.
    alternatively, any reccomendations for a closer store that sells these. I was looking at going to Tk Photo?

    cheers

    T.K. Foto Technic, #02-14 Funan Digitalife Mall | Tel 6292-4533 | sales@tkfoto.com.sg | www.tkfoto.com.sg

    Call them before you make the trip. 5-hour should be able to turn around. Can email them to reserve
    Take MRT airport to Tanah Merah Stn and change to East-West Line and drop off at City Hall Stn

    My guess is you have an hour or an hour fifteen min tops to spend at T K to browse around.

    The trip should be about forty five each way to City Hall MRT station. Allowing for about two hours each way including check in.

    Should be more than enough time.

    SHould be easy and fast. You can go to TK website and look at the pricelist and model before you arrive. That might speed things up.

    Welcome to ClubSNAP

    TK foto - Sirui price list here.

    http://www.tkfoto.com.sg/index.php?o...115&Itemid=290

    from Google Map, the estimated travelling time is 1hr 16m,

    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Chan...291497!3e3!5i3

    if you already know what model you want, ask them to reserve it for you.

    you can pick it up, pay and go, perhaps still have time to go Ya Kun to have a Kaya toast set before heading back to Changi Airport. http://www.yakun.com.sg/


    hope this help. :-)

    I'd suggest patronising the Ya Kun at the airport instead than to hang around at Funan to prevent being late

    Better be safe than sorry
