Singapore seen in a new light

To get a different perspective of Singapore’s cutting-edge architecture, a bumboat tour provides the perfect panorama.

The mini-cruise also provides a trip back in time to experience the country’s emergence from the small fishing village of Temasek (sea town) into the economic powerhouse of today. It was at the river mouth that Sir Stamford Raffles – the founder of modern Singapore – first stepped onto the island. During the ensuing British colonial era, the Singapore River became a thriving hub of commerce.

The excursion takes in 19th-century godowns (warehouses), as well as more modern sites, such as the Marina Bay Sands complex. It is highly recommended to embark on an evening voyage to catch the sunset and enjoy the nightly light show at Marina Bay from an amazing angle.
