Meet your driver at Changi International Airport for transfer to your boutique hotel in one of Chinatown’s heritage buildings. We’ve planned nothing for you today so that you can relax and settle in. Consider exploring the neighbourhood with its large hawker centre for an authentic Singaporean dinner tonight. Or grab a sundowner on the roof and take in the views.
This morning your guide will take you to some of the city’s highlights using public transport. Pass through the Colonial district, stop by the Merlion, meander through Chinatown, step into Sri Mariamman Temple, and get acquainted with Clarke Quay. In the evening your guide will taken you on a special tour of Singapore by night. Enjoy the lightshow at Gardens by the Bay, marvel at the views atop Marina Bay Sands, and cruise the Singapore River on a bumboat.
Singaporeans love to eat and there’s no better way to understand this diverse nation than through its food. Stop by the Geylang Serai wet market before visiting the Peranakan areas of Joo Chiat and Katong. Come hungry as you’ll sample local favourites such as Roti Prata, Nyonya dumplings, laksa, ondeh-ondeh, teh tarik, and more. The afternoon is at your leisure.
You will be transferred to Singapore Changi Airport to connect to your departure flight for your journey to Bali. Upon arrival you will be transferred to Ubud, Bali’s cultural capital.
Your home for the 3 nights in Ubud will be the tropical hideaway at Alam Shanti With a peaceful location in a quiet village just 10 minutes by car from Monkey Forest Road, Alam Shanti is an atmospheric boutique hotel set in lush gardens including its very own rice paddy. During your stay you can’t miss a visit to the Monkey Forest and Ubud Market but most of all there will be a chance to see a traditional Bali dance performance. We recommend the evening performances in the Ubud Palace. You can also find out if there is a religious ceremony close by which you could attend.
Experience Bali’s ‘must-do’ rafting adventure as you descend through lush tropical forest to the heart of the Ayung River. After a thorough safety briefing you’ll pass through stunning scenery as you shoot thrilling Class 3 rapids in magnificent surroundings. The casual river cruise through white water actions, going with the flow beneath the jungle canopy above. Discover hidden waterfalls and enjoy a swim in pristine waters and gain insight into river ecology from our expert and experienced guides. The experience ends at Karangdalem with a hot shower and delicious buffet lunch overlooking the stunning panorama of the valley.
Your driver will transfer you to the south of Bali. Griya Santrian is a lovely traditional hotel located in the sleepy town of Sanur directly by the beach.
For a different culinary journey we aim for the Night Market in Bali. In addition to the ubiquitous sate, there is the filling bakso soup, the creamy peanuts of gado gado, or the classic mie goreng, a spicy fried noodle dish, all of which combine to reveal the authentic flavors of Balinese food. Our specialized guide points travelers to all the remarkable little details.
You will have time to build up a tan but if you get tired of relaxation we can organise some trips including a visit to the Temple of Uluwatu to see the Kecak dance, a romantic seafood dinner on Jimbaran beach or a full day trip to see the most important sights of the Southern part of Bali.
Time to get back home and plan the next trip to Bali. Your driver will pick you up at a suitable time for your journey back to the airport.
