Head to the Armenian Church – the oldest Christian church in Singapore – to discover the history of Singapore’s Armenian community and enjoy the beautiful architecture amid the verdant tropical fauna. At CHIJMES – a beautiful former Catholic convent that is today an entertainment, shopping and dining center – listen to stories about French missionaries.
Finally, you’ll head to the world-famous Raffles Hotel, a place of cosmopolitan elegance built in 1899. Visit the hotel’s museum to see photographs, post cards, china and other memorabilia that famous hotel guests have returned. Then finish your tour with a cocktail in hand – you can’t visit the Raffles Hotel before sipping the drink that was invented there, the Singapore Sling.
