We start our Singapore night tour in the Civic District where will we visit some of the historic colonial buildings and learn about the early pioneers who came to Singapore to make a living. We will then board a bumboat and take a 30-minute cruise down the river through to the present day. We visit Merlion Park and soak in the sunset view of Marina Bay whilst learning about the mega construction project behind it.
Our journey through time progresses by bus to a residential district. We will discuss the political reform by The Founding Father of Singapore, Mr Lee Kuan Yew and discover how Singapore went from third-world to first-world in one generation. We will be accessing the roof of a Housing development Board (HDB) residential building from where we will get the most amazing birds-eye view of downtown Singapore.
The fourth stop of our night tour of Singapore is the famous Maxwell Hawker Centre in Chinatown where we will enjoy Singapore’s most iconic dish; Chicken Rice. We will wash it down with a freshly squeezed Sugar Cane juice; a real hit on our tours! Your guide will teach you Hawker Centre etiquette and point out all of the must-try foods in Singapore. We will make sure that you know how to eat like a local for the remainder of your time in Singapore.
After dinner, we retreat to a beautiful tea house for a traditional tea tasting experience. You will learn the art of the tea ceremony and try the Imperial tea that Queen Elizabeth II was served in the very same tea house. You’ll receive a small souvenir to take home to remember the experience.

This tour is packed full of ‘must see’ and ‘must do’ highlights. We cover some very interesting historical and political subjects and can go as deep or as light as you like on them. Our promise is to keep it fun and informative.
If you are a vegetarian we promise to get you something to eat at the Hawker Centre but we can not guarantee what will be available, it might be quite basic (like rice and veg). If the rooftop of The Pinnacle is closed due to bad weather we will take you to a different HDB building. If the teahouse is closed we will have a bigger dinner section.
