Start your afternoon tour from the doorstep of your hotel and drive toward the east coast of Singapore. Stop at Glam Village – named after the Gelam Tree which grew in abundance in the 1800s.

Soak in the rich cultural heritage of the Malays of the area, before proceeding to the Changi Chapel & Museum.
Considered the ground zero of Singapore's World War II history, the museum honors those who lost their lives during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore. Browse the exhibits, which include prisoner belongings and artifacts, and learn about the POW's fight for freedom, accompanied by narration from your informative, expert guide.
Continue your tour passing through laid-back Changi Village and pockets of remnants of the British Changi Airbase to visit Tampines New Town, a bustling area provides a contrasting environment to the more rustic Changi. Stop at the local wet market, housings, and retail outlets. After a fulfilling cultural experience, travel like the locals using the MRT public transport. Journeys through many scenic parts of Singapore’s heartland before you reach back to Chinatown, where your driver awaits to take you back to your city hotel.
