2. Singapore: Historical Bike Tour with Traditional Snacks

Discover the real Singapore on this 20-kilometer route through the city by bike. Visit a typical residential town and market to watch people go about their daily lives. Eat like a Singaporean, sampling local snacks and drinks at a “coffee shop”. See old and new public housing, as well as multi-million dollar riverfront homes.   Then, meander alongside the Singapore River, where trade brought to life a sleepy village town in the 1800s. See historically important landmarks, such as the 100-year-old fire station, museums, and places of worship. Of course, you’ll pay homage to the statue of Sir Stamford Thomas Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore.   Learn how WWII affected Singapore, and see monuments that honor those who suffered. You’ll get to understand the melting pot of people from all over the world who call Singapore home.   Finally, fast forward to the present and admire the ultra-modern business district. Jump right into the action as you cycle right along the Formula 1 route (though at a somewhat slower pace).

What people are saying about Chinatown, Singapore

Kenny was a great guide. He took us around china town and gave us the history of Singapore. We stopped for an iced coffee which was delicious. At the end of our tour he took us to a wonderful restaurant where we had a pork rib soup, pork belly, Chinese broccoli, and a sausage roll. Pulse we had a bread that we dipped in the soup stock. It was all wonderful Thank you to Kenny who gave us such a memorable experience.

The tour was the highlight of our stay in Singapore. Our guide Alfie did a great job, telling us everything about the city and sharing fun facts. We not only saw the sights, but also houses and places we probably would gave missed otherwise. He also encouraged the communication within the group. The ride itself was relaxed and we also made a little break to try local food and drinks.
