The evening begins with a local Chinese Dinner along the Singapore River with a choice of either Hainanese Chicken Rice or Seafood Nasi Goreng (Menu is subject to seasonal changes).
En route to the world’s largest fountain, take in the beautiful sight of the central business district via Benjamin Sheares Bridge.
Next, we move on to Bugis Street or other night bazaars during festive periods, where our guide will take you for a stroll at the night market or ‘pasar malam’ where you may chance upon some fantastic bargains.
Our last stop for the evening will be at The Raffles Hotel for a taste of Singapore’s very own concoction, ‘the Singapore Sling’ served in the famous Long Bar, (included for those who have booked the tour with this option). Raffles Hotel Singapore is steeped in history, and is undoubtedly the city’s most iconic hotel. Established in 1887, and named after the founder of Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles, this was the first of Singapore’s many luxury hotels to be built, and a symbol of the country’s colonial origins.
Enjoy a stay at the Raffles Hotel with our Raffles Special Stay, including two nights accommodation in a Courtyard Suite, a Singapore sling welcome drink upon arrival, Afternoon Tea, and more. For more information, click here.
Please Note: If you have booked this optional excursion without the included ‘Singapore Sling’, you will not have automatic access to the Long Bar – alternatively, you may join the walk-in queue for the Long Bar, or take a walk through the shopping mall ‘Raffles City’ instead. Queuing with the public for the Long Bar does not guarantee access to the bar, nor does it guarantee when you will get access.
