Singapore Organised Trips

Afternoon Tea At Raffles Singapore

Afternoon tea at Raffles is something of a Singapore institution and it’s a stylish and indulgent way to mark a special occasion or just treat yourself. It may have moved from the celebrated Tiffin Room, a part of the hotel’s story since 1892, to the recently restored Grand Lobby, but the experience is as evocative as ever. Sitting in the suitably palatial atrium, where three layers of Victorian pillars soar up to a vast skylight like a giant wedding cake, you’ll feel as if you’ve travelled back in time to a more elegant era. The effect is enhanced by the meal itself: delicious finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with jam and cream, and impeccably made seasonal cakes and pastries served on a three-tiered silver stand. Complementing the food, the exquisite teas come from a long-established French company, Mariage Frères, with everything from Earl Grey Imperial to South African rooibos.

Learn The Art Of Beer Making

Tiger Beer has been one of Singapore’s most iconic brands since it was launched in 1932, and 90 years later a trip around its brewery is a must for any lager lover. The guided tour begins in the visitor centre, where you’ll learn about the brand’s history, with lots of memorabilia and photos to bring the story to life. From here, you’ll head into the Ingredient Kiosk and Brew House, where you’ll see the various steps – mashing, fermenting and more – involved in turning aromatic malted grains, hops, yeast and water into the finished product. At the Package Gallery, you’ll get tips on pouring the perfect draught beer and an up-close experience of the bottling and canning process. Finally, you’ll reach the wonderfully atmospheric Tiger Tavern where, in the words of the brand’s long-running slogan, ‘It’s Time for a Tiger’: here, you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of the original Tiger Beer and sample several others as a fitting finale.

Singapore Heritage Food Trail

In multicultural Singapore, food is something of a national obsession and you’ll soon discover why on this culinary adventure through two of its most vibrant districts. You’ll dive into the hustle and bustle of Geylang Serai and its popular covered market, designed to look like a traditional kampong, which has been a hub of the local Malay community since it opened in 1964. It’s packed with stalls selling all manner of ingredients, from live fish to spices, used in Malay and Middle Eastern cooking. Upstairs is the hawker centre, where there’s time for a local-style breakfast: perhaps a roti prata, a type of flatbread served with various spiced dips and chutneys. From here, you’ll head to colourful Tekka in Little India, Singapore’s largest wet market, where you’ll hear languages from all around the world and pass stalls selling everything from saris to piquant Indian snacks.

Singapore Highlights in Half a Day

For those short of time, or who just like to make the most of every minute, this action-packed three-and-a-hour tour will give you a comprehensive overview of Singapore. The journey begins at Kampong Glam, one of the city-state’s oldest areas, whose colonial-era buildings now house trendy bars and eateries. After that, you’ll drive around the Civic District, home to the wide-open space of Padang playing field and Singapore Cricket Club, the historic Parliament House and the National Gallery Singapore, well worth returning to later for an insight into south-east Asian art. Afterwards, you’ll stop at Merlion Park to enjoy the impressive views of Marina Bay and take a selfie with one of two statues of Singapore’s part-lion-part-fish official mascot. You’ll continue to the 200-year-old Thian Hock Keng temple, before driving past Chinatown and on to your final port of call, the UNESCO-listed Singapore Botanic Gardens. A walk through the National Orchid Garden, with an eye-popping display of 60,000 orchid plants, makes a perfect finale to the trip.

Singapore Racing

Luxurious Kranji is one of the world’s leading horse-racing venues and a thrilling place to experience the breathless excitement of a sport whose roots in Singapore date back to 1842. Dressed to impress – the code is officially ‘smart casual’ – you’ll attend one of the regular weekly meets on Friday evening under lights or on Sunday afternoon to watch world-class thoroughbreds competing for glory and prizes on the all-weather track. The state-of-the-art facilities aren’t just for the horses, though. You’ll be cheering on from the comfort of the Victory Lounge, part of the sleek four-storey glass-sided grandstand, where some of the tables even have personal television screens to allow patrons a close-up view of the action on the course. There’s also a full-service bar and a restaurant with a menu of delicious signature Asian and international dishes that you might find hard to resist.
