Culture & Heritage - Footsteps of Raffles

This tour starts from where it all began – Raffles Landing Site - where Sir Stamford Raffles is believed to have first stepped ashore in 1819.

Step back in time to learn about Singapore’s founder vision for the island to become a vital trading centre for the Far East. Discover the city’s colonial history as you walk past bronze sculptures erected along the river. From Kucinta Cats to River Merchants, the various sculptures each depict a scene of a long-gone era.

Next, stop at Raffles Singapore where hives of activities were held for the high-society in the 1800s. Here, enjoy either an Afternoon Tea with English/Local delicacies or Cake Tea Set.

Just as Raffles sailed on the river, you will get to board a bumboat and cruise along the iconic Singapore River disembarking at Clarke Quay, now a riverside festival village where visitors and locals jostle each other for the hottest nightspots and the most sought-after restaurants.
