Footsteps of our Colonial Past

Our tour starts at the Singapore River – the lifeline of Singapore where the first immigrants eked out a meagre 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. Favourite items are replenishable and complemented by free-flow of premium teas and coffee.

Walk it all off at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery or send 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 with a bumboat cruise along the iconic Singapore River and see its transformation from fishing village to a great seaport!
