This tour starts from where it all began – at Raffles Landing Site – where Sir Stamford Raffles is believed to have first stepped ashore in 1819, before progressing to an Exhibition that traces the history of the Singapore River. Next, stop at Raffles Hotel, a hive of activity for the high-society set in the 1800s. Here, enjoy either an AfternoonTea with English/Local delicacies or a Cake Tea Set (see choice below).
Board a Bumboat and cruise along the historic Singapore River. Disembark at Clarke Quay, a riverside festival village where you will visit a Pewter Gallery to discover the history of pewter and the role of tin in the development of Singapore as a trading port. Be entertained by a demonstration of ‘pewtersmithing’.
