We start our trip by discovering the Central Fire Station, built in 1909 with its red and white striped "blood-and-bandage" architecture the building still stands tall and proud today underscoring the mission of the firefighters. We then hop on a bumboat and chug down the Singapore River and witness the modern skyscrapers in the financial district staring down at you. This important river was the mainstay of business and trading during the days of our forefathers, where the bumboats carried the goods to the warehouses lined along the river bank.
Our next stop is the tourism icon, the Merlion and the outstanding Marina Bay Sands Hotel with the Art & Science Museum for company by its side. We continue down a cooled underground walkway and emerge into the 5-star Fullerton Hotel which was once the General Post Office from 1928 to 1997.

A stroll through the National Gallery Singapore, pass the Saint Andrew's Cathedral and then Raffles Hotel welcomes you.
