Following an overnight flight from London Heathrow, arrive into Singapore on Day 2 where you will be met at the airport for your private transfer to your hotel, the 5-Star Mandarin Oriental Singapore. Check into your ocean view room, facing out over Marina Bay, and enjoy free time for the rest of the day.
Day 3 includes a guided tour of Singapore, an island-city situated off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Explore a world where old meets new as you're immersed in contrasting cultures. Visit the colonial district, home to the Padang viewing point and Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, a modern complex featuring a waterside concert hall that can seat 1,600 people. You'll also stop off at the Merlion fountain, a mythical half-lion half-fish creature that's become a mascot for the city and spouts a stream of water from its mouth directly into the marina. Then step into a bygone age as you take in the rich elegance of Thian Hock Keng Temple, the most important temple of its kind in Singapore. Next up is a visit to the Botanical Gardens, which features a dedicated orchid garden boasting more than 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids of orchids. Lastly, drive to Chinatown and Little India, which feel like entering completely different countries, before returning to your hotel for the evening.
