Travel to some of Singapore's oldest territories and discover its origins as you stroll down memory lane. Enjoy the tropical breeze on a Trishaw Uncle ride and blend into each district – Singapore River, Little India, Kampong Glam, and Chinatown – for an authentic, old-timey Singaporean journey. Be greeted by a true blue trishaw “uncle,” a term of endearment for trishaw riders given by locals. In history, trishaw uncles formed the early backbone of the country's labor force, thanks to their manual strength to get people to places before the emergence of modern transportation. Beneath every unique corner has a story of its own and combining them all together lead up to the competitive, thriving nation we know as Singapore today. Venture deeper into Chinatown for its temples and restored shophouses; Singapore River for its incredible port relations with the rest of the world; Kampong Glam for its migrant roots with hints of Malay and Indian cultures; and finally, Little India for the interesting mix of local and migrant communities. Don't forget to drop by the shops in these areas and treat yourself to some kitschy souvenir. Guided by professional trishaw riders, you're in for a different kind of expedition as you look back to these places in awe.

Very highly recommended! Had an amazing and truly insightful tour of the musical box museum- one of a kind in Asia and never expected Singapore to have produced grandfather clocks, musical boxes in the past! Highly recommended to visit this rare museum and truly enjoyed the hands on experience of listening to those lovely musical boxes function.
The cherry of top of the cake was the yummy food in the cafe downstairs- had some Singaporean dishes, Peranakan pastries and the hospitality was great. Bought a hand cranked mini musical box and the wind up musical box photo frame (seen on the tables in the cafe)- we will be back! :)
expect not just dinosaurs but an animal kingdom -and at some parts, history lessons on Singapore and the region. the layout, attention to detail, all the gold nuggets of information....top notch all around! we came for our dino-obsessed son's benefit but by the time we left the museum, the whole family had takeaways!
Choose the 3 out of 5 package.
1. Trick Eye Musuem
Quite fun to take photos with family. Many set to choose from! Before enter, please dont forget to download the app for special effects. But, do take note that the app crash if you use it for too long.
2. Madame Tussauds Singapore
The wax statue were very realistic. Took a loooy of pictures with my bae, Taylor Swift. Also contains the boat ride, which is very cool and enjoyable. Like how there’s a segment dedicated to Singapore history, great for families to learn about Singapore history!
3. 4D Advetureland
Went for the horror ride. Quite similar to the USS Shrek ride, only difference, is that there is no storyline for the 4D Adventureland. Otherwise, scary yet enjoyable ride!
In conclusion, 5/5 to go ahead with the 3 out of 5 attractions package; Very value for money!
Start our land and water adventure with a big splash into the Marina Bay!
Cruise along Marina Bay, where we admire views of the bustling urban city's skyline and marvel at Singapore's most iconic landmark—the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, the Esplanade Theatre and the towering Merlion. Highly recommended to go with nerf experience and meal at hardrock cafe.
I didn’t manage to go to Fort Canning Hill’s battlebox during my student days, it was a great time, as it was phase 2, i had the place almost to myself thru out my 4hrs there, i learnt so much about 14th century Singapore n Singapore during the WWII period. Invaluable time and i even managed to walk around fort canning park afterwards
One of the 'must visit' museums in Singapore for its delicious peranakan food & insightful tour on the history of musical boxes. Even the tickets are worth keeping as momento as each plays a different song like National anthem, We are Singapore, Happy Birthday etc... Never would have known of this if not for SRV. Although it's particularly unfortunate that we were unable to listen to any of the locally made musical boxes, there was never a boring moment in the entire tour. Totally worth visiting.
