Singapore City Tour

Thian Hock Keng Temple in Singapore

Your half-day Singapore city tour starts in the Civic District, where you’ll see government buildings and other landmarks such as the Parliament House, the Cricket Club, Padang sports field and the National Gallery Singapore, where the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall sit. Then stop for a view of Marina Bay and photo op of the Merlion statue, Singapore’s mythological figure that’s half-fish, half-lion.

Next, visit Thian Hock King, one of the city’s oldest Buddhist-Taoist temples, followed by a drive through Chinatown. Stop by the National Orchid Garden, part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is home to 60,000 orchids of various colors and hybrids. Your last stop is the neighborhood of Little India, where you can take in the lively atmosphere and delicious scents coming out of the many Indian restaurants.

When your tour ends, you’ll have a helpful overview of the city so you can decide where you want to return later to explore in more depth on your own.

This is a great overview to the city ...with a nice variety in the things you see. Was able to use what we learned on the tour to branch out on our own later in the week. Guide was interesting, added value to the tour and cared about our questions. The Orchid Garden was one of the highlights of my trip! Great way to start our visit to Singapore!

Really enjoyed this tour as an overview of Singapore-we saw the main sights and it gave us the opportunity to see places that we might want to revisit. The pick up and drop off at our hotel was an added bonus and I would certainly recommend this tour for a first visit to Singapore
