A tour of the country's main attractions.
Explore old and new Singapore in this discovery tour of her history, people, culture, economy and cuisine. Singapore was founded as a trading post by the British East India Company back in 1819. Today, it has transformed into a big cosmopolitan city and is famously known as the crossroad of the East and West. Let the guide regale you with stories of old and present-day Singapore, stories as diverse as man-eating tigers, the national flower, the Japanese invasion during WWII, the "King" of fruits, and the exotic spices that go into Peranakan cuisine. You will also gain an insight into everyday Singaporean lives by visiting a local housing estate. This and more, when you sign up for Singapore City Tour!
