Welcome to the City in a Garden! Your driver will collect you at Changi International Airport and take you to your hotel in Chinatown. The Maxwell Hawker Centre is just around the corner so why not venture out and grab dinner with the locals tonight?
From the historic Civic District to the high rises of Marina Bay, past the Merlion on a Bumboat, through the supertrees and cloud forest of Gardens by the Bay, to the tiny lanes of Chinatown and mosques of Kampong Glam, you’ll get a full tour of the city today. Stop in one of the city’s government-owned apartment buildings to learn about daily life and pop into a traditional teahouse for a Chinese ceremony.
Start today at the historic Singapore Botanic Gardens. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to more than 60,000 plants and the world’s largest orchid display. In the afternoon, consider continuing your walks in nature with a visit to MacRitchie Reservoir with its canopy walkway and lookout tower. You’ll be high in the rainforest and far from the bustle of Singapore.
Singaporeans love to eat. With your guide today you’ll learn about the history of the country’s food as you combine off the beaten track secrets with well-known food centres. From the Chinese and Peranakan cuisine of Katong to the hawker legends of Old Airport Road, the Malay, Arabic, and Indonesian influences of Kampong Glam, and the sweet-spicy combinations of Little India, you’ll end with a full belly and a new appreciation for Singapore’s diverse food scene.
Today is yours to relax or explore as you like until the evening. Consider spending the day on one of Sentosa’s beaches before boarding a 40-foot catamaran for a sunset sail through the southern islands. Take a dip in the South China Sea and watch the city light up as you make your way back. This is a view of Singapore few people get to experience.
Say farewell to Singapore today as you’ll be homeward – or onward – bound. Consider having your driver pick you up early for the ride to the airport so you can stop at Jewel and take in the 5-storey indoor waterfall surrounded by lush greenery. Bon voyage!
