Itinerary
Day 1 (Arrival at Singapore Changi Airport, sightseeing in the Colonial District and Sentosa Island) (-, L, D)
  • On your arrival at Singapore Changi Airport, we welcome you to one of the most important cultural and economic hubs of south east Asia!
  • After a stop at your hotel to drop off your luggage (you’ll be able to check in later), get acquainted with the British colonial founding and history of Singapore with a walk in the Colonial District. Singapore (meaning the ‘Lion City’) was an ancient trading port given its strategic location. However, modern Singapore was founded by Stamford Raffles as a British trading post in the early 19th century. The Colonial District’s neo-Palladian structures line the banks of the Singapore River and are perfect for a late morning walking tour. Buildings like the old Supreme Court, St Andrews Cathedral, Victoria Theatre, Armenian Church and the iconic Raffles Hotel offer a glimpse into that era.
  • Stop for a sumptuous curry buffet at the Raffles Hotel and marvel at the juxtaposition of old against the new skyscrapers of Singapore’s business district.
  • In the afternoon, take a cable car ride to Sentosa Island and enjoy an aerial view of Singapore, before making your way to the S.E.A. Aquarium, one of the world’s largest aquariums. Divided into 10 zones, spot a mind-boggling array of underwater creatures like the only giant oceanic manta ray in captivity, bottle nose dolphins, hammerhead sharks, white-spotted jellyfish, garden eels, and flocks of tropical fish.
  • End the day with the ‘Wings of Time’ water, laser and fire show.
Day 2 (Sightseeing in Chinatown, WWII memorial at Changi and Marina Bay by night) (B, L, D)
  • Although the Chinese are the ethnic majority in Singapore, the enclave has historical and cultural significance. A mish-mash of architectural styles including Victorian, Edwardian, Italianate and Portuguese, Chinatown was built by generations of early Chinese immigrants with knowledge of other places.
  • Walk through the colourfully painted streets to Singapore’s oldest Chinese temple, the Thian Hock Keng Temple, dedicated to Mazu, a Chinese goddess of the sea. Learn about the history of Singapore’s Chinese population at the Chinatown Heritage Centre.
  • Visit a wet market and a Chinese traditional medicine store. Grab lunch at a restaurant in one of Chinatown’s hottest spots, Ann Siang Hill and Club Street.
  • In the afternoon, pay your respects at the Kranji War Memorial and Cemetery, to the soldiers who defended Singapore during World War II. Learn more about the Japanese occupation of Singapore and Singapore’s role in the war at the Changi Museum and Chapel.
  • Finally, let Singapore dazzle you with the spectacular Gardens by the Bay tour by night and the light and sound show at Supertree Grove.
  • End the night on a high note with the magnificent skyline view from the Marina Bay Sands’ Skypark.
Day 3 (Morning at Jurong Bird Park, visit to the ArtScience Museum and an evening walk through Little India) (B, L, D)
  • Spend the morning at one of the world’s largest aviaries, the Jurong Bird Park. It is home to over 5000 birds of 400 species from around the world, some of which are threatened. Of note, the Waterfall Aviary has one of the highest man-made waterfalls in the world, the Jurong Falls. From birds endemic to faraway regions like king penguins to more commonly found storks and quails, from nocturnal birds like the snowy oil to parakeets and cockatoos of dazzling plumage, Jurong Bird Park has it all. If you’re tired of walking, the panorail offers a view of the whole park.
  • After returning to the main island of Singapore, visit the fascinating ArtScience Museum in Marina Bay, the world’s first! It has 3 galleries of permanent exhibits and several touring ones.
  • In the evening, make a stop at the Veeramakaliamman Temple in Little India dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali, across from Chinatown. An ethnic minority, this neighbourhood has one of the concentrations of Singapore’s Indian population. Navigate the spice shops, saree shops, wet market and if you like the idea of some temporary body art, get a henna design painted by one of the local vendors.
Day 4 (Visit the Singapore Zoo and Botanic Gardens) (B, L, D)
  • Spend the morning taking a tram ride (with commentary) through the beautiful setting of the Singapore Zoo. Animals are free to roam through these open spaces, separated from visitors by hidden barriers like moats, glass, etc. You’ll be able to see more than 2000 animals in their naturalistic habitats, including the world’s largest herd of captive orangutans. Other notable residents of the zoo are the Hamadryas baboons, white tigers, wallabies, cheetahs, Malayan tapirs and Asian elephants.
  • After lunch, make your way to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the world’s only tropical garden to be accorded UNESCO World Heritage status. It is more than 150 years old, containing more than 10,000 species of flora, and covers more than 80 hectares of land. The National Orchid Garden in particular is linked to Singapore’s massive orchid trade and has more than 1200 species and 200o hybrids on display. The gardens also have a small tropical rainforest, 3 lakes, and a Michelin-starred restaurant, and is open late into the night with various shows and exhibitions taking place through the year.
Day 5 (Fly to Hong Kong and take a walk through its markets) (B, -, D)
  • After breakfast, we will convey you to Singapore Changi Airport for your flight to Hong Kong. The morning and some of the afternoon will be spent travelling and we will pick you up at Hong Kong International Airport to facilitate your check-in to the hotel.
  • Join us in the evening for a walk through Hong Kong’s dedicated market streets. If it’s worth buying, Hong Kong has a street for it. Some of the more spectacular market streets are the flower street, the bird street, goldfish market (do not be misled for there are many other varieties of fish to be found here) and the Fa Yuen Street Market, a fresh produce (wet) market. Aside from actual livestock, these markets sell all imaginable associated items like cages, tanks, food bowls, decorative pieces, etc.
  • As you may imagine, the street food here shows equal variety and is a great dinner option.
Day 6 (Sightseeing in Hong Kong, cruise the Victoria Harbour and see the Symphony of Lights) (B, L, D)
  • Spend the day exploring Hong Kong, a rich, vibrant port city of tremendous trade and financial importance. Take the Peak Tram to Victoria Peak, via a steep incline, pulled by steel cables. The ride up and the view from the top is entirely worth it as you see a sweeping panoramic view of the massive skyscrapers, the Victoria Harbour, the Kowloon Peninsula and the green countryside beyond. Visit the 19th century Man Mo Temple of literature and martial arts.
  • Catch an interesting glimpse into Hong Kong’s humble origins as a series of fishing villages at Aberdeen Fishing Village. Much of the traditional way of life for fishing communities is preserved here.
  • Enjoy a delicious dim sum lunch and go shopping at the famous Stanley Market in the afternoon. Strike a bargain on Chinese silk, art, jewellery and accessories.
  • In the evening, cruise through Victoria Harbour and witness the terrific Symphony of Lights show. A 20-minute display using laser beams, music and commentary, it details how Hong Kong transformed from a fishing hamlet to the contemporary cosmopolitan city. Hong Kong’s skyline at night is a sight to behold.
Day 7 (Visit to Disneyland) (B, L, D)
  • One of the most-awaited days of the tour for children and adults alike, gear up for Hong Kong Disneyland! Located on Lantau Island, Hong Kong Disneyland is a unique blend of classic Disney with elements of Chinese culture. Step into a world where all your favourite characters and fairy tales come alive. Say hello to Tarzan on the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland. Visit Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Fantasyland. Marvel at the futurism of Tomorrowland. Hang out with Woody in Toy Story Land. Go prospecting for gold in the abandoned mining town of Grizzly Gulch and take a ride through the curious Mystic Manor. Soak in the carnival atmosphere of Main Street, USA. Hong Kong Disneyland is fun for the whole family.
Day 8 (Day trip to Macau) (B, L, D)
  • Make sure you eat a hearty breakfast in preparation for another day trip. The ferry will take you to Macau, an autonomous region of China and once Portuguese colony. As a result of this mixed heritage, Macau has a number of historical and cultural points of interest.
  • Begin with the ruins of St Paul’s in Macau. Destroyed by a fire in the 19th century, the southern stone façade of the 17th century college and church is largely all that remains. However, the artwork carved on to the façade has survived and this structure is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Move on to one of the oldest temples in Macau, the A-Ma Temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Mazu. Marvel at the 17th century Fortaleza do Monte (mountain fortress), of great military significance in Macau’s history. It was key to helping the Portuguese defend Macau from pirates and from a Dutch invasion.
  • If you’re over 21 and dare to try your luck, roll the dice at Macau’s many swanky casinos. Stop to take a breath atop the Macau Tower, one of the tallest buildings of the world and enjoy a view of the Pearl River Delta before taking the ferry back to Hong Kong.
Day 9 (Heritage Walk and an evening in Kowloon) (B, L, D)
  • It would be remiss to neglect the pre-European-colonial history of Hong Kong, so spend the morning at a Heritage Walk of the New Territories. Learn about the five great Chinese clans of Hong Kong (Tang, Man, Hau, Pang and Liu), believed to be its original settlers. Visit the Tai Fu Tai, an impressive residence built by the Man clan and Fan Tin Village where Man clan members still live. The Lo Wai Walled Village was the first walled village built by the Tang clan with the 16th century Tang ancestral worship hall nearby. Light a stick of incense and make a wish under the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree.
  • Spend the afternoon at your leisure and spend the evening in the Kowloon district, getting a taste of local flavours. The Yau Ma Tei wholesale fruit market offers not just local fruit but stories from its century of existence.
  • Walk around Tin Hau Temple and get your fortune told. Enjoy dinner at a local café on Temple Street and comb through the flea markets for the best bargains in jewellery, jade, clothing and accessories.
Day 10 (Departure from Hong Kong) (B, -, -)
  • After a last leisurely breakfast at your hotel, make sure you’ve packed all your new souvenirs and memories carefully into your luggage. We will convey you to Hong Kong International Airport for your onward journey. Thank you for travelling with ProVacation!
