Sunday, 6 December 2015 AM Tour, 10am to 2pm
Price per Person: SGD155/ USD120
Located next to Marina Reservoir, Gardens by the Bay offers breath-taking waterfront views. This multi-award winning horticultural destination spans 101 hectares of reclaimed land, and is made up of two main areas – Bay South Garden and Bay East Garden.
Explore the cool-moist Cloud Forest, which features a spectacular 35-metre high man-made waterfall, as well as exotic plants like orchids, pitcher plants, and ferns that originate from the Tropical Montane highlands located some 1,000 to 3,500 metres above sea level.
View our collection of amazing plants from cool-dry Mediterranean climates that can only be experienced in parts of Europe, Chile, South Africa and California up close, and wander among the unusual Baobabs, succulent plants and thousand year-old olive trees as you take in the ever changing sights of the flower display.
Bay South Garden is the largest of the gardens. Inspired by an orchid, the design resembles Singapore’s national flower, Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’.
You can’t miss the massive Supertrees here. These tree-shaped vertical gardens are between nine to 16 storeys tall. Walk on the suspended walkway between two Supertrees to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the gardens. In the evening, catch the sky show of choreographed lights and sounds at the Garden Rhapsody amidst the Supertrees.

Asians Civilizations Museum
The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), located at the historic Empress Place Building, was opened on 1 March 2003. The museum presents the history and culture of Singapore’s ancestral cultures, with artefacts that span the entire Asian continent and over five thousand years of recorded history.
A precinct in Singapore that has retained its traditional charm in Modern Singapore. Located at the eastern rim of the Central Business District, Little India evolved from a plantation to a major cattle trading centre and today a flourishing commercial centre for the Indian community. Be prepared for an assault on the senses! You will be greeted by the strong, heady scent of spices and jasmine garlands, followed by the treasure trove of silverware, brassware, wood carvings and colourful silk saris, dazzling to behold.
Chinatown Street Market
Take yourself back in time at the vibrant Chinatown Street Market and scour through a rich variety of wonderful items like dragon candles, street opera masks, traditional clothing and Chinese calligraphy. You’ll stroll into another age as you see items from the past, mixed with more contemporary gear such as street fashion and modern jewellery. Be immersed in the rich offering of traditional and modern items available on sale and soak in Chinese culture when you make a visit to the Chinatown Street Market.
Marina Barrage and Singapore Maritime Gallery
Wednesday, 9 December Technical Visit, 10am to 1pm
Price per Person: SGD50/ USD43
Built across the mouth of the Marina Channel, the Marina Barrage creates Singapore’s 15th reservoir, and the first in the heart of the city. With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, the Marina catchment is the island’s largest and most urbanised catchment. Together with two other new reservoirs, the Marina Reservoir has increased Singapore’s water catchment from half to two-thirds of the country’s land area. The Marina Barrage is the result of former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew’s vision nearly two decades ago when he envisaged damming the mouth of the Marina Channel to create a freshwater reservoir.
