You’ll see Singapore from every angle on this tour. On land, you’ll visit the UNESCO-ticked Botanic Gardens. This huge, 74-hectare site is divided into different areas, including a rainforest, a lake and a healing garden filled with medicinal plants. Then you’ll hit the water for a boat ride, this unique vessel once carried cargo between ships and the riverside quays, but now carries passengers along Singapore’s historic waterfront. You’ll see Clarke Quay, where brightly painted bars and restaurants have taken up residence in once-abandoned warehouses. And you can marvel at Singapore’s old-meets-new skyline, where colonial-era buildings rub shoulders with 21st-century high-rises. Then you’ll take to the skies on the Singapore Flyer. The observation wheel trumps the London Eye at a whopping 165 meters tall, so you’ll be eye-to-eye with some of Singapore’s skyscrapers. And you can take in the 360° views of the cityscape from your air-conditioned glass capsule.
Boarding the boats requires sensible shoes and a good sense of balance, not recommended for guests with limited mobility.
