    What to Expect
    This historical and cultural tour of eastern Singapore introduces you to local life on the island both past and present. Begin your trip with hotel pickup, traveling by comfortable coach to Kampong Glam – named after the Gelam Tree. Once the seat of the old Malay Royalty, it still retains the charm of a bygone era and the influence of the Arab traders.

    Afterward, stop at Tampines New Town. This United Nations World Habitat Award winner, with its green spaces, linked walkways, and impressive urban design, offers a fascinating insight into island life today.

    Next, continue on to Changi Beach, site of the World War II Sook Ching Massacre. Listen as your guide provides information about this tragic event and how the Japanese Occupation affected the area, and visit the memorial plaque dedicated to the victims of war. 

    Finally, head to the Malay community of Changi Village with your guide and experience laid-back island life. Admire the scenic beaches, ferry terminal and village hotels, and, if you wish, indulge in some of the areas street food.

    Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.
