Considering this, does Singapore Airlines premium economy get lounge access?

Singapore Airlines Premium Economy tickets do not include lounge access. With Velocity Gold status, I accessed the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge in Singapore, which is actually the Marhaba Lounge. With a Priority Pass membership, there are plenty of other lounges to access in Singapore, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as well.

Also, what do you get with Singapore Airlines premium economy? You get free drinks and free food in Singapore Airlines Premium Economy. The menu offering is enhanced and the food is decent. You can actually reserve your main course from a variety of Premium Economy Book the Cook dishes up to 24 hours before you fly, or select from three meal choices onboard.

Keeping this in view, does premium economy include lounge access?

Complimentary access to an airline lounge is usually reserved for first and business class passengers, meaning there is no premium economy lounge access, or any for economy class people. Lounge access for premium economy class passengers is available though.

Is Singapore Airlines premium economy worth it?

Premium economy is a good choice for these long haul overnight routes if your budget doesn't stretch to business class (or the First Suites). The food is good, the choice of entertainment excellent, there's enough room, and the seat is comfortable enough to get some sleep.
