Going to Los Angeles (LA), Las Vegas (LV) and San Francisco (SF)?
For Singaporean going to USA, you need to apply for ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) aka VISA.
Cost: USD14 per pax if you apply via https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/
Due to the long 18 hours flight to LA, we decided not to comprise our journey experience. Thus, we opt for Singapore Airline (SQ) and transit via Japan.
Cost: SGD$2,596 for 2 pax (Economy)
