Singapore-Singapore

Hop on a 2-hour electric scooter tour through Singapore's history that stretches back 700 years to the modern day metropolis that it is today. Explore Chinese accounts of Temasek or Sea Town, the 1819 landing of Sir Stamford Raffles and the treaty he negotiated that established Singapore as a trading station.

DAY 01

City Tour

  • Set off from Joy Scoot at the Singapore Flyer with your first stop being the Merlion Park. Learn about Singapore's mythical national icon, the half lion half fish.

  • As your guide takes you towards the river's oldest bridge- Cavenagh Bridge, pass through the mail tunnel of the old Singapore Post Office, which is today's Fullerton Hotel.

  • Continue your ride to the Old Parliament House, the oldest surviving building in Singapore. Learn about its many uses and extensions through time and the restoration works that transformed it into today's Arts House.

  • Stop to sample a Singaporean breakfast staple, charcoal-grilled kaya toast and teh tarik. Kaya is a traditional jam made from coconut and eggs; teh tarik is a hot milk tea beverage, which literally means pulled tea.

  • Head to the downtown core of Singapore. Trace your way to the National Gallery, which is home to the world's largest collection of Singapore and South East Asian art.

  • Ride through the South Beach Complex, which will take you to the Fountain of Wealth. Walk around a mini fountain at the centre of the fountain's base three times for good luck.

  • Make a stop at the Cookie Museum to sample uniquely flavoured cookies like Pandan Chiffon, Chili Crab and Chicken Rice.

  • The 2-hour electric scooter tour comes to an end back at The Walking Singapore where your guide will present you with some gifts before sending you off to enjoy the rest of your Singapore adventure.
