Retrace the history of Singapore in the company of an expert guide and learn about the origins of the Lion City from its humble beginnings. Meet your guide at Raffles Place MRT Station or, your referred pick-up location 30 minutes before start time (when pick-up & drop-off option is selected). Then, set out on a walk along the Singapore River to discover how the city developed from a small fishing village to a busy trading port of the British Empire. Learn about how the city’s history is tied to the importance of the river, and how it was once lined with fishing boats and spice sellers. Continue the tour onto Fullerton Hotel, the city's newly minted National Monument, and admire the grand architecture of the building. Next, wander through the Civic District, bursting with historical, architectural, and cultural heritage, and where modern Singapore was born. Visit the National Gallery, the city’s newest and largest museum of Singapore and Southeast Asian art and afterwards stroll along the Marina Bay Esplanade before finally visiting the mythical Merlion, the city’s national icon.
