Singapore Fling

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 418

Multicultural, vibrant, colonial describe Singapore. Explore Chinatown, Malay Village and Little India to experience the colour and ambience that makes up this small but fascinating country.


Singapore is certainly a small country with a population of only 4 million but there are a large number of reasons to spend time here. It is very much a modern garden destination in many respects with its downtown skyscrapers and 50 parks and 4 nature reserves. But it also retains its old colourful districts which are influenced by the ethnic mix that exists here. Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures stand side by side and can also be seen individually in neighbourhoods such as Chinatown and Little India.

The attractive SingaporeRiver dissects the city and one enjoyable experience is to stroll along its banks through Boat Quay and Clark Quay where one can eat, drink and take in the local neighbourhoods. Apart from the ethnicity of Singapore, another major attraction is the amazing shopping much of which is centered on Orchard Road but also in the many night markets. For the culturally inclined, there are art galleries, museums and a very contemporary performing arts centre.

Start your exploration of Singapore by visiting the downtown commercial core travelling by the Padang Cricket Club, Parliament House, the Supreme Court and City Hall. Then it’s on to MerlionPark where the symbol of Singapore, the Merlion, a mythical beast, is located some 8.6 metres/28 feet tall and weighing 70 tons. After, visit the first of the several traditional neighbourhoods. Stop at the Thian Hock Kong Temple, the oldest in Singapore with its brightly coloured façade and head to Chinatown with its restored shop houses. Digress from the neighbourhoods to enjoy the serene NationalOrchidGarden which is also known as the Botanical Gardens. Next comes Little India with its large Indian community, one of the most colourful and attractive neighbourhoods.

In the evening, marvel at the sights and sounds of Boat Quay along the banks of the SingaporeRiver with its bright lights, lively nightlife and many eating establishments.  Then take in Bugis Street, an entertainment area with an unusual atmosphere. Stop at the famous Raffles Hotel and head to the Long Bar for, naturally, a Singapore Sling. Finally have dinner at a local restaurant.

The next morning begins with a visit to the MalayVillage which depicts the lifestyle of the 50’s and 60’s here in the form of replicated kampong (village). Then visit the Changi Chapel and Museum which is a memorial to events in Singapore during World War 2.

Get a glimpse into contemporary Singapore travelling through ChangiVillage with its beaches and seafood restaurants and Tampines New Town, a modern neighbourhood to complete your exploration of this dynamic country.
