Description

As Singapore sits at a crossroad of East and West, it is a complex mix of cultures and history. At first glance, you will see a city that is modern with beautiful avenues and soaring architecture. A closer look reveals the heritage of its Eastern and European pasts. Chinatown sits next to the Colonial District which blends into Little India. All of these neighborhoods are fascinating to visit, each with their own special experiences to offer. Traveling through Singapore gives you windows into many cultures. Each neighborhood offers a new scene with different foods, traditions and entertainments.

Our tour will bring you into these neighborhoods and along with the stories of how each developed, you will get to taste the local food. The biggest surprise will be Little India, the most interesting of all. You will see the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, where those people who have come to Singapore from India to find work, gather on the weekends to be reminded of home, and a whole world of culture compacted into a neighborhood.

Kampong Glam, just next door, is anchored by the Sultan Mosque with its onion dome, and shops and parks surround it. This is a lovely area with both contemporary sophisticated boutiques as well as old legendary shops where you can build your own fragrance to take home.

Chinatown - in 1822 Sir Stamford Raffles laid out a town plan that divided Singapore into clearly defined quarters - enclaves that remain distinctive even today. In the early 1980s Singapore recognized the value of preserving its architectural heritage for posterity and began restoring historic buildings. Chinatown was one of the first areas to be transformed and it is extensive and wonderful. During your walk you might be treated to see handmade noodles made in the blink of an eye or taste the famous bak kwa.

The Marina Bay area is also close by and is surrounded by fabulous buildings. There is no building in the world that looks like the Marina Bay Sands Resort, yet you can have a long discussion on what the design is all about.

Your tour will be a mix of walking, driving, and boating to allow you to cover the city in each area for the best introduction to Singapore.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
