An orientation tour that showcases the history, culture and lifestyle that is Singapore. Begin your journey at Kampong Glam, an area where modernity meets tradition.

The Gallery consists of the former Supreme Court Building and the City Hall.
Next, stop at the Merlion Park and enjoy the impressive views of Marina Bay. This is a great place to take a photo with The Merlion, a mythological creature that is part lion and part fish. Visit Thian Hock Keng Temple, one of Singapore's oldest Buddhist-Taoist temples, before driving past Chinatown.
