Today enjoy a market and suburb tour. We drive to Geylang Serai market, which lies at the heart of the Malay community. Rub shoulders with the locals at the wet market and also you can indulge in all-time Singaporean favorites like Roti Prata and Thosai taken with a frothy glass of Teh Tarikin the food center (food cost is excluded and payable by guests to individual stall owners). Continue to the Joo Chiat and Katong enclave, strolling past its pastel-hued pre-war shop-houses. With a bit of luck, you may come across the popiah masters who stand over hot griddles twirling dollops of dough in mid-air to make paper-thin wrappers for fresh spring rolls.
We begin our evening with a bumboat ride along the iconic Singapore River to see beautifully restored shop-houses, modern skyscrapers of the financial district, colonial buildings and the iconic Merlion statue. After we drive to Gardens by the Bay to watch the Super Tree Grove come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night! We then continue on to Marina Bay Sands’ Skypark Observation Deck – it is a roof like no other, perched 200 metres in the air. Be amazed with a birds-eye view of the city from the top.
