What to expect

The tour kick-starts with a short ride to the iconic Gardens by the Bay; a horticultural oasis embraced within the heart of the city. The two cooled conservatories, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest, draw inspiration from the Mediterranean climates found across the world and is even complete with a waterfall. Next, marvel at the Supertrees’ vertical garden; covered by a variety of over 162,900 plants that range from bromeliads, orchids, ferns to tropical flowering climbers. Discover the roots of Singapore's diverse history and culture through the intricacies of plant life in the themed Heritage Gardens; the Colonial Garden, Chinese Garden, Malay Garden and the Indian Garden. Post enrichment, cruise by the waters of Singapore river on bumboats, otherwise commonly known as “tongkangs”. Listen to the calm murmur of the propellers hitting the water as you retrace the history of Riverside Quay. Marvel at the extravagant contrast between the restored architecturally-rich century-old shop houses and the striking skyscraper-skyline of modern Singapore. Your nostalgic adventure ends at the “Grand Lady of Singapore”, the Raffles Hotel, where you will taste the renowned 'Singapore Sling' invented in 1903 at their newly renovated Long Bar.
