If time is a constraint, this tour will be perfect. You will discover the old charm of the city with the backdrop of sky scrapers, also known as the Asian Wall Street.

You will be picked up from your hotel by a registered guide and your own personal driver to your choice of an ethnic quarter. You have an option to visit and hear stories of either Chinatown, Little India or Arab Street. Next, a short drive will take you to the colonial district/civic district. Here you will witness the old charm of the city and historical buildings.

A short walking tour begins where you can hear stories from your guide. The Padang (a Malay word), also known as the field, will bring back memories dating to the early years. A place of gathering and gossip mongering, previously known as Scandal Hill. The Padang is also part of many other historical chapters in the making of modern Singapore, a part of it being a recreational centre.


What to expect

Walk along the Singapore River (the birth place of Singapore) and discover the importance of the river and the reasons for the divide. A short walk will lead you to our very own iconic figure of Singapore, the Merlion, adopted by the Singapore Tourism Board. The story of the Merlion illustrates two different eras. Also, is the Merlion female or male?  
Guess the Answer:  

Hop on to the Singapore River Cruise and be on your way to discover the river thriving hub of commerce during the 19th and 20th century. Enjoy a 25-minute ride on the bumboat, also known as the Tongkang (sea-going barge). These wooden boats ply the river transporting goods, carrying them to the godowns near the riverbanks. Wonder why there are eyes on each bumboat? Listen out for the answers in the commentary provided in the boat. 

End your adventures with a ride back to your hotel with everlasting memories of the places you have visited.
