About the Heritage Tour
Experience the history, culture and lifestyle of multi-racial Singapore, a dynamic city-state and the gateway to Asia! This tour showcases the contrast between tradition and modernity; a glimpse into the unique blend of East and West. The journey will offer you a panoramic view of the cityscape and its landmarks like the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay before briefly stopping at the Merlion Park. Situated at the mouth of the Singapore River, the Merlion is Singapore’s national icon. It symbolizes the history of Singapore as a “Lion City” and famous sea port. The tour will end with a visit to either Chinatown or Little India.
Chinatown was home to the early Chinese settlers and is one of the must-see cultural enclaves for visitors in Singapore. A bustling, colourful mix of old and new, the area consists of exotic pre-war shophouses which are home to merchants who have been hawking the same wares for years.
With the cacophony of car horns, bicycle bells and local residents’ chatter, Little India is one of the most charming and vibrant ethnic enclaves in Singapore. Here, its spice-scented streets beckon you to an abundance of ethnic jewellery, jasmine garlands and silk saris.
About the City Lights Tour
As night falls, Singapore takes on another persona to offer a vibrant array of nightlife and entertainment options. Enjoy a panoramic view of Singapore’s famous icons along the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade – the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands, the Esplanade and Gardens by the Bay.
Comprising of 3 waterfront gardens – Bay South, East and Central, this horticulture oasis nestled in the heart of the city features more than 500,000 plants from over 2,200 species. Be awed by 18 Avatar-like man-made Supertrees.
