The Best Answer

Assuming from Chinatown MRT to Bukit Batok MRT:
MRT (40 mins) - about $1.60 if you use an EZ-link card (recommend getting one if you intend to travel around for a few days - there should be a tourist version)
BUS (60 mins) - about $1.50 with EZ-link card
TAXI (25 mins) - about $14 if you take it during non-peak or midnight timings, otherwise it could rise to about $20.
I used www.gothere.sg for this information - it's pretty useful for figuring out how to get around Singapore!

If you want to take a train, you should at least bring along $3 with you to purchase the ez-link card. You can purchase the card from the card machine.
If you want to travel by bus, it is about $1.50. If you do not want to purchase a card, you can choose to pay by coins.
My best advise to you is that, you purchase an ez-link card, and top it up with at least 10 or 20 bucks, and use it to travel here and there. More handy!

U can travel by all 3 types of transport depending on yr preference,timing & budget too.. If u're staying for more than a day it's advisable to purchase the EZ link & MRT tourist cards.
For the MRT : U will save more & its advisable u purchase a tourist day tourist card rather than the Standard card. From Chinatown to Bukit Batok it'll cost u SGD 1.60 & d journey takes about 40 mins.
For the Bus : Journey takes about 1 hour & the fare is SGD 1.50 with the EZ link card. U'll pay slightly more if u use cash.
For taxi : Takes u about 25 mins also depending on the traffic situation too. Fare is around SGD 15, this also depends on whether u taking the taxi during the peak or Off peak timings. U'll need to pay more if u board the taxi during peak hours.
Like Hoon Kiat said,it would be useful if u use www.gothere.sg for more Info. There u can also get alot of Info to get around Singapore at yr fingertips.
Enjoy your Stay..... :)
