Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population. Its colonial core centres on the Padang, a cricket field since the 1830s and now flanked by grand buildings such as City Hall, with its 18 Corinthian columns. In Singapore’s circa-1820 Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, said to house one of Buddha’s teeth.
Welcome to Singapore! You will be welcomed on arrival at Singapore Changi Airport and transferred to your hotel. Enjoy the rest of the day getting your bearings and exploring the neighbourhood. Later in the evening we proceed to Singapore Night Safari. Night Safari is the world’s first nocturnal zoo and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore. Night Safari, the world’s first nocturnal wildlife park, is a 13-time winner of the Best Attraction category awarded by Singapore Tourism Board. Close to 900 animals from approximately 100 species (of which almost 41 per cent are threatened) inhabit the 35-hectare park.
After breakfast at the hotel, you begin your tour of the city. Your half day tour of Singapore will include all major attractions such as Merlion Park, Fountain of Wealth, Chinatown, Little India, City Hall and Parliament House. Shop for souvenirs at the Chinatown street market and try the uniquely Singaporean Roti Prata at Little India. Your city tour ends in the afternoon and you have the rest of the evening free to indulge in some retail therapy.
Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel and in the afternoon travel to Sentosa Island by cable car. One of Singapore’s biggest tourist draws, Sentosa has something for everyone. Visit Luge & SkyRide, Skyline Luge is a unique, wheeled, gravity ride that provides riders full control over their descent on purpose-built tracks. Visit the mesmerizing SEA aquarium that houses over 100,000 marine animals, including bottlenose dolphins and manta rays, and was once the largest oceanarium in the world. You will also visit the fascinating Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom End your day with Wings of Time, a spectacular night show set against the open sea with water displays, laser lights, fire effects and music.
Snow City is Singapore’s first permanent indoor snow centre. A snow chamber that delivers snow experience all year round; a unique sub-zero environment that will elevate your corporate events and team building sessions to greater heights; and snow professionals that create not only fun and enriching educational programmes, but magic out of thin air as well ! The only bumper car experience on ice in Singapore, Drift on Ice is a new addition to the snow and winter experience at Snow City. The 5-minute bumper car ride promises the fun and excitement of the signature carnival attraction, but on ice and in a sub-zero environment. Later we proceeded to Tiger Brewery. See how Tiger beer is brewed from just four ingredients, get behind the scenes in the brew house and packaging hall, and taste the “wort” liquid before it becomes beer. Finally, learn how to pull the perfect pint and savor a whole range of different brews over a beer appreciation session.
Enjoy your last morning in Singapore before checking out and being transferred to the airport, where you will depart for your destination with bags full of souvenirs and happy memories.
