The Hop on hop off sightseeing bus was an excellent way to see the city - there were three different routes that were interchangeable at different points, commentary was provided, along with some really irritating music in between times ! We travelled the whole of each route, getting on and off a couple of times along the way. We picked the bus up at the stop next door to our hotel.
We bought a 24 hour ticket including a cruise on the hippo river cruise for $33 Singapore dollars each - we later found out we would have been better buying one of their extended packages which would have given us access over two days rather than one, so be sure to ask the question before you buy! Overall though a great way to get some perspective on where things are in the city !
The Hippo river boat was something we did from Clarke Quay in the daytime as part of our hop on hop off tour. This was probably a mistake as everything appeared a little 'flat', would suggest if you are going to do this, leave it until the evening when the bright lights of Clark Quay and Boat Quay are shining bright !
