Cycle, snack and see the best of Singapore all in a day! This Total Singapore Tour combines two of our most popular adventures (Bike About Singapore and Chinatown Food Adventure) into one epic full-day tour.
You’ll start your Total Singapore Tour on two wheels: zipping through the cultural enclave of Kampong Glam, a historic district where Malays and Arabs once settled. We’ll pedal through the nooks and crannies, where rows of boutique shops and Middle Eastern cafés beckon locals. From there, we’ll explore Bussorah Street, often referred to as Little Istanbul. Here, you’ll find many Turkish diners and shops selling souvenirs.
We’ll continue along Beach Road, which was once the coastline of the city but has since been pushed inland to accommodate land being reclaimed for buildings and businesses. Marvel over the architecture, where many of the buildings were built based on Chinese feng shui. We’ll eventually reach the famous Raffles Hotel, which is the jewel in the crown of our hotels in Singapore.
We’ll finish up the cycling portion of our Total Singapore Tour with a visit to the colonial district, as well as a glimpse of the beautiful waterfront at Marina Bay, including the spectacular Marina Bay Sands.
You’ll then have a free hour to relax and stretch your legs before we dig into the foodie fest (after all, you need to refuel from all the cycling!).
We’ll re-group at the Chinatown complex, the largest hawker centre in Singapore. Your guide will help you pick out some of the most authentic, tasty Singaporean treats. Savour the famous chicken rice along with delicious poh piah (fresh spring roll). Then try some mouth-watering local Chinese delights such as chwee kueh (water rice cake) with freshly crushed, ice-cold sugar cane juice. While you chow down, you’ll learn about the city’s rich culture, and why hawker centres are so close to the Singaporeans’ hearts.
After our first dose of deliciousness, we’ll take a stroll through the wet market to explore local food sources, then hit the streets of Chinatown. Learn about the history of the early migrants in this area. We take a respite from the outdoor heat with a visit to the Urban Redevelopment Authority gallery to understand how city planners built Singapore from a humble fishing village to a great cosmopolitan city!
We’ll finish up our Total Singapore Tour with a refreshing calamansi drink (lime juice) and a tasty roti prata.
