Discover the exciting ever-evolving metropolis of Singapore in style with Bill Peach Journeys. Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, the natural meeting point of sea routes, “The Lion City” flourished as a trading post for vessels such as Chinese junks, Arab dhows, Portuguese battleships and Buginese schooners. Modern Singapore was founded in the 19th century, thanks to politics, trade and a man known as Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles. Today, many slices of Singapore’s multi-cultural, colonial and wartime past are preserved in and around the city.

We will step into the past while visiting monuments, museums and memorials in this fascinating melting pot while also exploring the modern wonders for which the city is now famed. From the timeless elegance of a Raffles high tea lunch to the phenomenal modern developments at Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay, Singapore is the perfect blend of East meets West, classic style melding with modern innovation. Five star luxury at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel provides the perfect base for this fascinating journey. You simply must join us!

Day 2: Singapore Sights

We start today with a “Bumboat” ride where we learn of the great historical importance of the Singapore River, including that of its founding fathers. Alighting at Esplanade Bridge we come face to face with Singapore’s very own tourism mascot, the Merlion. We then explore the Civic District including the Padang Cricket Club, Parliament House, Supreme Court and City Hall.

Moving on, we visit one of the oldest and most important Hokkien temples in Singapore, Thian Hock Keng Temple. Finally today we visit the National Orchid Garden, within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which boasts a colourful display of 60,000 orchid plants, with 400 species including the national flower of Singapore.

Overnight: Mandarin Oriental

Day 3: Gardens & Raffles

Today we explore the unmissable Gardens by the Bay which spans over 100 hectares. A private tour will reveal that the gardens house two domes or conservatories, Cloud Forest and Flower Dome, which are climate controlled indoor glasshouses. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of the Mediterranean and South Africa, whilst the Cloud Forest replicates a cool-moist climate found in the world’s tropical regions. We will also explore the Supertrees which provide impressive aerial views of the gardens while also collecting rainwater and generating solar power.

Another meal to remember as we transfer to the iconic Raffles hotel to enjoy high tea accompanied, of course, by a Singapore Sling. Step into the colonial elegance of yesteryear when Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore in 1819.

Overnight: Mandarin Oriental

Day 4: Singapore

A full day at leisure to explore or shop at your own pace or, if you prefer, relax.

Day 5: Sentosa Island

A jungle breakfast with the orangutans at Singapore Zoo starts our day. Spread over 28 hectares, Singapore Zoo is home to over 3,600 mammals, birds and reptiles, including some rare and endangered species. Beautiful landscaping is only one reason this is considered one of the world’s leading zoos. After lunch we explore Sentosa Island. Formerly a fishing village and British military base, Sentosa Island has been transformed into an idyllic island resort providing many recreational options. Afternoon at leisure prior to our farewell dinner this evening.
