Welcome upon arrival at Changi Airport, you will meet your English-speaking driver and your guide. We take, if time permits, a scenic drive along the coastal roads and discover hidden places off the tourist map:

HOTEL: Villa Samadhi (Crib or Sarang Room)
Day 2 : Secret Map (B/-/-)
Today, you will go on an adventure with your private guide using Singapore's public transport network to explore Singapore Urban Hidden Gems.

Meet your English-speaking guide after breakfast (8.45am), then hail a taxi to the start of your private walking tour trail: 2.5hr Private Walking Tour of Balestier neighbourhood. Embark on a walking tour of one of the quaint neighbourhoods of Singapore, and learn how its people eat, pray and love. Take an insightful stroll with your very own storyteller to unearth shared aspirations and values of Singaporeans, and immerse in heart-warming acts of integrity, compassion, courage, respect and gratitude that are tucked away in unassuming corners of Singapore. Along the way, your personal guide and storyteller will delve into the importance of food in our Asian culture – from a basic need to a way to earn a living since the mid-1800s, to its significant role in multiculturalism in Singapore. No wonder UNESCO describes Singapore's hawker centres as "'community dining rooms' where people from diverse backgrounds gather and share the experience of dining over breakfast, lunch and dinner".
- Visit one of the last remaining traditional bakeries and coffee roasters in Singapore
- Discover iconic landmarks in Balestier, and how they play an important part in building the community spirit within the estate
- Learn more about influential historical figures in the past, and explore the values that helped shaped them into who they were

Enjoy a local lunch after the tour (on your own expense), then meet your next English-speaking guide who will be taking you on an adventure to Punggol, Singapore's first eco-town. Explore the suburbs of the Lion City the way the locals do - by public transport (MRT & Bus) - and enjoy the view of the public housing estates, iconic landmarks and skylines, and the occasional scenery en-route. Upon arrival at Punggol, you will go on a private cycling tour (3h30mn), where you will get to see first-hand how Singapore manages the water scarcity issue through sustainable storm water management systems. During the tour, you will also be able to observe how the aesthetics of the urban landscape is complemented by the floral and fauna, and have the opportunity to spot signs of numerous birdlife, marine creatures and more.
- Visit Singapore's largest man-made waterway and learn about the eco-features incorporated within to strengthen our nation's water security
- Family friendly and suited for all ages - cycle on well-paved paths, and on bridges through the estate's greenery
- Learn the science behind our city-state's water retention and drainage system, and how it plays a part not only in sustainable storm water management but also in improving the aesthetics of our urban landscape

You may feast on a local seafood after the tour (on your own expense) and by 10pm, take a taxi back to the hotel.
HOTEL: Villa Samadhi (Crib or Sarang Room)
Day 3 : Departure (B/-/-)
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel on your last day in Singapore, the morning is at leisure and we shall drop you back at the airport for you flight to the next destination.

End of our services.
