Itinerary

Get a personalized introduction to the multicultural city of Singapore on this 4-hour shore excursion, which begins with pickup at the port by private vehicle. You’ll travel to three districts that highlight Indian, Malay and Chinese heritage.

First, stroll with your guide through Little India, a spice-scented treasure trove of storefronts brimming with brassware, silverware and dazzling silk saris. You’ll find jasmine garlands, incense and Indian sweets among the numerous storefronts of Little India Arcade on Campbell Lane.

Your next stop is Arab Street, the heart of Singapore’s Muslim community. Among a dense concentration of shops and restaurants you’ll find textile stores draped with vibrantly dyed batiks and other merchandise reflecting the Islamic world, including jewelry, basket ware and antiques.

Check out the Sultan Mosque before continuing on to Chinatown, whose narrow streets and refurbished shophouses are home to a significant community of Chinese immigrants. Inform your guide of your interests and go in search of teahouses, Chinese medicine purveyors and calligraphers that have practiced their time-honored trades for generations.

Browse the fascinating stalls for souvenirs before your cultural heritage tour ends with return transport to the Singapore cruise terminal.
