There are several ways to enter the island of Singapore, including land, sea and air. Changi International Airport is the most common way where visitors would enter. As Singapore is connected to the Malaysian Peninsula by two causeways, there is much locals and tourists travelling by cars and coaches, entering and leaving Singapore through the Woodlands Checkpoint and Tuas Checkpoint. There are various other coastal checkpoints where cruises and ferries dock, as visitors frequently sail to islands of Indonesia and Malaysia.
