Traveling from Singapore to Bhutan involves a few key steps due to Bhutan's unique travel policies and geographical location. 

1. Flight to Bhutan
Direct flights from Singapore to Bhutan are not available. Typically, you'll need to fly from Singapore to one of the gateway cities to Bhutan, such as Bangkok (Thailand), Kathmandu (Nepal), Delhi (India), or Kolkata (India). From there, you can take a flight to Paro, Bhutan's only international airport. Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines are the two airlines operating flights to Bhutan.

2. Visa Requirements
All tourists, except those from India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives, need a visa to enter Bhutan. Singaporeans require a visa, which is arranged by your tour operator and approved by the Bhutanese government. Your trip must be booked through a Bhutanese tour operator or one of their international partners.

3. Tour Package
Independent travel in Bhutan is not permitted; you must book your trip through a licensed Bhutanese tour operator. The government sets minimum daily package rates for tourists, which include accommodation, food, transport, and an official guide.

4. Travel Insurance
It's advisable to get travel insurance that covers medical expenses, trip cancellations, and other potential travel issues.

5. Health and Vaccination
Check if any vaccinations are recommended or required for Bhutan. Also, considering Bhutan's high altitude, it's important to be aware of altitude sickness.

6. Packing and Preparation
Bhutan has a wide range of climates, so pack accordingly. Respect local customs and dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites.

7. Currency and Connectivity
The Bhutanese Ngultrum (BTN) is the local currency. Ensure you have enough local currency or Indian Rupees (widely accepted in Bhutan). Internet connectivity and mobile services are available but may be limited in remote areas.

8. Cultural Sensitivity
Bhutan has a unique culture deeply rooted in Buddhism. It's important to respect local traditions, religious practices, and customs.

9. Environmental Care
Bhutan is known for its pristine environment and commitment to sustainability. Travelers are expected to respect nature and contribute to maintaining its cleanliness and integrity.
Remember, the specifics can vary, so it's a good idea to consult with a travel agency specializing in Bhutan or the Bhutanese embassy for the most current travel information.
