All shore excursion tours include daily pickup and drop-off at your port of call.
Begin with a tour of the Botanical Gardens, which includes the National Orchid Garden. Continue to Chinatown and be fascinated by the temples and traditional turn-of-the-century shophouses retaining the Chinese character in this enclave. Embark on a short Bum Boat ride through a kaleidoscope of historic river and harbor landmarks: the ‘godown’ warehouses, the shophouses, the six bridges built by the British and the gracious building of the old waterfront set against the towering skyline of the new business district. Later, visit Merlion Park, a popular spot for great views of Marina Bay and a picture-taking opportunity with the Merlion, a mythological creature that is part lion and part fish. Explore Little India, the lively trading community, and be overwhelmed by the charms of this part of old Singapore. (L)
