Singapore's Colonial History
Travel back to Singapore's colonial days as you visit the Raffles Landing Site, enjoy afternoon tea at The Fullerton Hotel, admire Neo-Palladian architecture, and cruise along the Singapore River aboard a colonial-era bumboat.
This afternoon excursion begins at the Raffles Landing Site, where Sir Stamford Raffles first stepped ashore in 1819 and established a free-trade port. Learn how this led to Singapore becoming one of the busiest trading ports in the region and a major financial hub, eventually growing to become the Singapore we see today. Pass an array of Neo-Palladian buildings as you stroll along the banks of the Singapore River before proceeding to your next stop at Raffles Hotel, where hives of activities were held for the high-society in the 1800s. Here, enjoy an Afternoon Tea with English and local delicacies.Just as Raffles sailed on the river, you will end your tour on a bumboat, traditional cargo-ferrying crafts, for a cruise along the Singapore River.
This tour will operate until July/August of 2019 where the stop for Afternoon Tea at The Fullerton Hotel will be replaced by Afternoon Tea at Raffles Hotel.
