Serving up a true melting pot of flavors and food, Singapore’s cultural diversity is reflected through the array of local cuisines comprising Chinese, Malay, Indian and Peranakan. The bustling Geylang Serai market lies at the heart of the Malay community and features predominately Malay and Indian cuisine. The famous market has a wet section selling fresh produce, from live fish to spices, and a food centre on the upper level. Enjoy all time Singaporean favorites like Roti Prata and Thosai taken with a frothy glass of Teh Tarik. Traditionally associated with the Peranakan and Eurasian communities, the Joo Chiat/Katong enclave is a treasure trove rich in history and picture-perfect architecture of pre-war shophouses. To Singaporeans this neighborhood is home to the famous Laksa, Ondeh-ondeh and other delicacies. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to watch popiah masters standing over hot griddles twirling dollops of dough in mid-air to make those paper thin wrappers for fresh spring rolls.

DAY 04

SINGAPORE (B)

Move your senses with the sights and sounds of a wet market and watch how locals hunt for the freshest bargain. It’s no mystery why the term ‘wet’ as stall owners use water in the market to wash floors, to keep fruits and vegetables fresh, and to keep fish and shellfish alive. Check out local favorites like century egg, black chicken and wide array of spices. Next, adjourn to Singapore’s largest food centre – Chinatown Complex for a leisurely breakfast. Your day is not complete without visiting a traditional and heritage shop for a supply of herbs, tonic and even pastries for family tea time. After sampling of local desserts, let’s step into The Baking Loft and enjoy the making of Chicken Rice, one of Singapore’s national dishes, and the very popular Ondeh Ondeh. For chicken rice, we will share with you the technique of making succulent and tender chicken together with the flavorful chicken rice as well as the must-have chilli and ginger sauces. You will get to roll your very own rice balls. For dessert, make from scratch the popular ondeh ondeh which is a type of soft and chewy kueh using sweet potato filled with gula melaka and covered with desiccated coconut. Once done, let’s enjoy a fulfilling meal.

 

In the evening, you may consider our optional Night Out at Marian Bay Tour ($76 per person). Tour starts from Gardens by the Bay, we will discover exotic plants in the FlowerDome from the 5 continents which are displayed in 9 different gardens. Step into the Flower Dome and find the largest glass greenhouse in the world as listed in the 2015 Guinness World Records! Be amazed by the changing display of flowers and plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid regions. Walk in the Cloud Forest and marvel at the 114-foot tall indoor waterfall, a mysterious world veiled in mist with and be amazed at the unique and fragile plants. Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems. And learn about rare plants and their fast-disappearing environment. Watch the SuperTree Grove come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night! Be amazed with a birds-eye view of the city from the top of Marina Bay Sand’s Skypark – it is a roof like no other, perched 656 feet in the air with observation deck in the clouds. (Tour operates on  every Wednesday, Friday & Sunday, except Public Holidays).

DAY 05

SINGAPORE (B)

Today’s afternoon tour starts at The Singapore River – the lifeline of Singapore where our first immigrants eked out a meager living and saw Singapore transform from an obscure little fishing village to a great seaport. Admire beautifully restored warehouses that now house chic quayside dining and entertainment spots and the contrasting skyscrapers of the Financial District. Then marvel at magnificent colonial buildings and five grand old bridges before stopping at our destination, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Enjoy a delightful three-tier Afternoon Tea served at the sun-lit Courtyard with its magnificent high glass ceiling. Favorite items are replenishable and complemented by free-flow of premium teas and coffee. Walk it all off at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery or mail a postcard home through the colonial-style Red Pillar Post Box located at the gallery. Let our guide take you back in time from when it was a Fortress built at the mouth of the Singapore River to the first General Post Office in the early 20th century and now the beautifully restored Fullerton Hotel, Singapore’s 71st National Monument. End this heritage trail on a bumboat cruise along the iconic Singapore River and watch the transformation from fishing village to a great seaport!
