• Cultural Melting Pot: This phrase has become a cliche, but it still rings true in Singapore, as travelers will discover in explorations of the city's Little India, Arab Street, and Chinatown - to name but a few distinct cultural districts.
Upon arrival in Singapore, check into the luxurious accommodation of either Raffles Singapore or Fullerton Bay. Spend the rest of your day getting to know the modern city-state’s incredible, sky-scraping architecture. Explore the funky, lively neighborhoods of Little India, Arab Street and Chinatown to get a taste of the cuisine and culture of Singapore’s diverse atmosphere. Sit back and relax as you take a traditional bumboat river cruise to end your first day.
Take a full-day tour of the city’s architecture with awe-striking traditional and modern buildings everywhere you look. Visit the Sands SkyPark at the top of Marina Bay Sands, where you can go for a refreshing mid-day dip in the hotel’s rooftop infinity pool. Peruse the exotic animals at the popular city zoo or visit one of Singapore’s many other attractions. Return to your hotel for your final night in the pristine city.
Climb aboard a luxurious yacht as you set out onto the crystal clear waters. Cruise up the Singapore straits and along the east coast of Malaysia to Tioman Island. The island rests in Mersing Marine Park and is far from commercialism. This is one of the most remote Malaysian islands. Drift off while drifting along and spend tonight aboard the luxury yacht.
It’s seaside-living in full swing for your second day spent either aboard the yacht or strolling the untouched beaches. Keep your eyes peeled for the exotic monitor lizards roaming the island - don’t worry, they are non-threatening creatures! Try fishing from the yacht or snorkeling in the warm sea. Enjoy a gourmet dinner on the island that evening. Spend your final night sleeping atop the gentle rocking of the tide.
Complete a full cruise around the vibrant islands surrounding Tioman. Lounge in the sun and relax as the yacht travels back towards Singapore. Enjoy a drink as the sun dips in the sky and you indulge in a final dinner on board. Finish your journey as you reach the lively city of Singapore and prepare for your departure.
