Venue Asian Civilisations Museum Ticketing Counter
$53.00 Member  $66.00 Guest

Have you ever wondered why Singapore is also called the Lion City, when there are no lions to be found within a radius of 4,400 miles? What is the significance of the Merlion?

How is it that Singapore has more than one founder?  Who is Raffles? And finally, how did Singapore go from being economically Zero to Hero in a mere 50 plus years?

Just as most urban life sprang from the riversides, Singapore’s development was no different. The tour starts near the Singapore River, exploring the sights, tastes and sounds not on the typical tourist trail.  As we walk past historic 2-story buildings into modern architecture, you will learn about Singapore's colourful past and her meteoric rise to global city status. In the midst of all her economic success, hopefully you will still find the Singapore heartbeat in unique places and simple treats that retain a warm place in our hearts. The tour ends at Maxwell Food Centre.

Along the way, Jan, the guide will share unconventional stories to give you a peek into this awesome island city state that he calls home.

Dress code: please dress accordingly as we will enter a temple.  Wear appropriate walking shoes. Bring umbrella, money, camera, water.   There will be a refreshment stop.

This tour is suitable for those who want a snapshot of the little Red Dot or photo buffs.

This tour is non-refundable.
