Day-by-Day

Day 1 Singapore

Arrive in the vibrant, modern city-state of Singapore, and check in to your luxury hotel. Once settled in, head out to the architectural and botanical wonder, Gardens by the Bay. Science and technology meets nature at this modern garden park which boast two ultra-modern conservatories, vertical gardens that generate solar power called Supertrees, and outdoor gardens. In the late afternoon, see the downtown Singapore by waterway on a traditional bumboat cruise. Pass by landmarks such as the Merlion and a statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern day Singapore.

Day 2 Singapore

Start your day the way locals do at a traditional coffeeshop where you will try the staple breakfast of soy sauce eggs, kaya toast, and kopi (strong black coffee strained from what looks like a sock). Today you will explore the enclaves of the three majority ethnic groups that make up Singapore. Start in Little India's busy streets filled with malls, jewelry stores, and colorful statues of Hindu Deities, followed by Kampong Glam, also known as Arab Street. The Sultan Mosque presides proudly at the head of the street and the many side streets are lined with eateries and quirky boutiques. For lunch, you are in for a treat - several treats. At one of Singapore's iconic hawker centers, try several different signature dishes such as delicate chicken rice, warming laksa, prawn noodles, and more. Finally, round out the day at Chinatown which is home to narrow streets lined with colorful lanterns and revered temples including the Buddha Tooth Relic temple and Sri Mariamman temple. If you wish, catch the sunset from the top of the Singapore Flyer and watch as the city lights up.

Day 3 Singapore

Visit the Joo Chiat neighborhood where you will learn about Peranakan culture, the result of centuries-long mixing of Chinese and Malay cultures in the region. See the traditional shophouses, sample Nyonya rice dumplings and tea, and learn about the dress and embroidery. Spend the day seeing other highlights around the city including Chjimes Hall, the historically significant Battle Box in Fort Canning Park, modern Southeast Asian art at the National Gallery, and the premier shopping boulevard, Orchard Road.

Day 4 Sentosa Island

Today leave the city behind for some sun and sea on Sentosa Island, a completely different environment just a quick 15-minute drive away from Marina Bay. Check into the Capella, the premier luxury resort on the island, tucked away in 30 acres of surrounding lush gardens. The rest of the day is yours to unwind and enjoy this serene slice of paradise.

Day 5 Sentosa Island

Spend today at leisure. If you wish to venture outside of your resort, Sentosa Island has plenty to offer, from palm-fringed sandy beaches, a boardwalk lined with eateries and boutiques, family-friendly parks, fun museums, and theme parks.

Day 6 Departure

After one last swim the warm waters, one last plate of chicken rice, or whichever is your favorite part of this classic Singapore journey, it is time to head to the airport for your onward flight.
