Tours in Singapore

Singapore may be known affectionately as the 'Little Red Dot' – due to the way it is often depicted on a world map – but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in cultural diversity. At first glance, Singapore’s many skyscrapers seem like something from the future but look a little closer and between the towering buildings you’ll see that it’s surprisingly green. In recent years, Singapore has added living walls, rooftop farms and gardens throughout the city.

Singapore also happens to be perfectly situated for exploring the rest of Asia, making it the ideal jumping off point. On our Seven Seas Voyager® Asia Cruise, you’ll start your adventure with a few days to explore Singapore before boarding your cruise ship where you can enjoy all of life’s luxuries as you sail to Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia before returning to Singapore. Here you can take in the views from the Marina Bay Sands, with a sea full of ships to one side and the dazzling city skyline to the other, and spend the day in the massive department stores and designer shops of Orchard Road.

Alternatively, step aboard an iconic train and relive the glamour of days gone by in our Eastern & Oriental Express Bangkok to Singapore tour, which will take you from the glittering temples of Bangkok, through fragrant emerald green jungle landscapes to Malaysia and onward to Singapore. Finish with three nights in Singapore where you can dine al fresco as you overlook the river, take in the bustle of Chinatown and relax on the island of Sentosa, which was purpose built for relaxation.

Destination Manager

“If you don’t choose to stay at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel, you can still visit the incredible viewing platform for S$23. Although only hotel guests are permitted in the super Instagramable infinity pool.”


Head of Marketing

“One of the most memorable parts of my trip was having breakfast with the orangutans at Singapore Zoo. The Ah Meng Restaurant hosts a buffet breakfast every day, which the orangutans visit between 9.30am and 10am.”


Senior Destination Manager

“If you’re not sure where to eat – and you’ll be spoilt for choice in this foodie capital – head to CHIJMES on Victoria Street, a former convent that has been converted into a cool space with bars, restaurants and events.”

By far the best way to get around is the MRT, which stands for Mass Rapid Transit. It’s easy to navigate, clean and comfortable, and incredibly efficient with trains running every few minutes from 5.30am until midnight. Taxis are also affordable and convenient, as is the bus network.

The majority of Singaporeans, regardless of ethnicity, are bilingual English speakers. The other main languages spoken include Mandarin Chinese, Bahasa Malay, and Tamil.

Singapore is actually great to visit all year round, with consistently hot, sunny weather. It’s located near the equator and so has a typical tropical climate. There are, however, two monsoon seasons to be mindful of, from December to early March, and from June to September.

Singapore seamlessly merges Eastern and Western culture, all wrapped up in a vibrant, modern package. Contrast the glittering lights of the city with the UNESCO World Heritage listed Botanic Gardens. And with the MRT public transport system at your disposal, you can explore every aspect of Singapore with the quick, clean and efficient ease this city’s known for.
