Savor the exotic charm of Singapore's inner city and nearby suburbs without extensive walking. From the pier, you will travel to one of Singapore's most famous shopping districts, Orchard Road. Once a country lane flanked by fruit orchards and nutmeg plantations, Orchard Road is now a glittering blend of boutiques, hotels and restaurants.
You will then proceed to the old Malay quarters of Arab Street, where you will view the magnificent Sultan Mosque with its massive gold dome and the colorful bazaar with stalls brimming with batik, brassware, rattan baskets and carpets. Drive along Beach Road to admire the marvelous Raffles Hotel, followed by a refreshment stop at a local coffee shop.
Continue to the impressive historic Colonial District to see the Padang, Supreme Court, City Hall, St. Andrew's Cathedral and Singapore Cricket Club. From here you will drive to Mohamed Sultan Road to see its intriguing architecture and carefully restored buildings. Your final stop is the vibrant Chinatown; explore the area by foot to see the temples, markets and festive shops selling herbal medicines, gold, curios and souvenirs. Return to the ship following your tour of the city.
