Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Singapore

Arrive into ‘the Lion City’ and transfer privately to your hotel, the city’s original grande dame.
Raffles Singapore (Courtyard Suite)

Day 2: Singapore

Only in Singapore could a street stall be awarded a Michelin star for its exceptional cuisine. In celebration, join your expert guide for the ultimate food tour where you will not only sample sublime street dishes but enjoy an insight into local customs and heritage.  You will be met at the hotel and driven to Nanyang Old Coffee located near Chinatown for a traditional breakfast. Enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee with a plate of buttered kaya toast to start the day. Eat like a local in Kampong Glam when you sample roti prata, a south Indian flatbread known for its flaky texture and soft middle. This simple dish is eaten around the clock and can be paired with either sugar by day or curry by night.  The next stop on your culinary adventure is Maxwell Food Centre, home of the famous Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. One taste and it’s easy to see why this was the first street stall in the world to be awarded a Michelin star. Find out why the Singaporeans love to flavour their food with belacan, a simple shrimp condiment. The smell of Chinese-inspired dishes from dim sum, rice porridge, fish balls and noodles will fill the air in all the hawker centres and wet markets you visit.  After a morning of feasting, return to your hotel.

This afternoon transfer to the Bugis street market where your vintage Vespa sidecar adventure begins. The two-hour ride covers locations made famous in the film Crazy Rich Asians: Raffles Hotel, the historic Chijmes complex, Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, Chinatown, Tanglin Big House and more.

Before returning to your hotel, a night safari at Singapore Zoo is included. Set on 40 acres, this is the world’s first zoo to be located in secondary jungle. Let the mystery and drama of the tropical jungle unfold during a guided buggy ride and walking trail. Find out more about the Asian elephant in an exclusive feeding session and enjoy reserved seating at the Creatures of the Night Show.

Day 4: Singapore

Today is an offshore island adventure as you travel by private bumboat to Pulau Ubin. Perhaps the most well-known of Singapore’s islands, Pulau Ubin is one of the country’s two remaining kampongs (village) and is a living showcase of what Singapore was like in the 1960s. Brimming with rustic charm, the island has a  rich ecosystem teeming with flora and fauna, especially in the Chek Jawa wetlands where a stroll down the kilometre-long boardwalk reveals all sorts of wildlife such as carpet anemones and mangrove-dwelling fiddler crabs. After lunch return to the main island and your hotel.
