Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

In Singapore's Chinatown you'll get to spend some time exploring the maze of awning-draped shops and market stalls and visit the Sri Mariamman Temple located here. This stunning Hindu temple is the oldest, and perhaps the most active, in the city. Originally built in 1827, it's dedicated to the goddess Sri Mariamman, known to help heal people from disease.

In a Chinese tea house (where Queen Elizabeth once visited) listen to a talk on how the Chinese brew tea, take in the flavors and aromas of the tea leaves, and take time for tea tasting. Unique Chinese tea pots and tea leaves are also sold here.

Next, visit exotic Little India, to be charmed by the many shops selling spices, snacks, colorful saris, glittering jewelry, accessories, brassware and other exotica. Taste some spices, then continue past Arab Street and the beautiful gold-domed Sultan Mosque.

At a famous leading Hotel, enjoy a Singapore Sling. A sumptuous Chinese set lunch will be served during your tour. Reboard your coach for your transfer back to the ship.
