Get a personalized introduction to the multicultural city of Singapore on this 3-hour shore excursion, which begins with pickup at the port by private vehicle. Our guide will bring you to the gateway of Chinatown to start your walking journey past Singapore's cultural sights. Set off into the backstreets and stroll past some of the area's most iconic architecture, including a mysterious shrine and a collection of charming shop-houses. Once a common element of Singapore's architecture before World War II, walk along these shop-houses "five foot walkways", sheltered paths characteristic of these quirky buildings, leading to a traditional coffee shop. Try some of the shop's best blends of coffee and crispy toast - both local favourites for decades - before heading onward toward a traditional wet market.
Peruse bustling market stalls brimming with fresh vegetables, seafood and even live frogs, before hopping on-board the public train network bound for your next stop: Little India. Be greeted by rows of shops selling produce, spices and flower garlands in a dizzying riot of vibrant colors and scents. Make your way through the frenzy to arrive at a local shop to see Indian saris and flower garlands being made while having a chat with the shop owner. Finally, we end up at Tekka market and get an up-close and personal look at shopkeepers in the midst of tossing prata and pouring teh tarik. Dig into these local delicacies to wrap up your journey.
