Suggested Itinerary for Inspiration

Your preferences design the real journey. We're ready to create a wonderful Singapore and Bali tour for you.

Day 1
Singapore Arrival

Welcome to Singapore! Arrive at what is consistently voted the world's best airport — Changi. After the usually-outstanding, smooth-sailing experience through the airport, we waste no time getting to grips with the city on our Night Scenes of Singapore tour.

After the pleasant 25-minute ride, we think it's time for a first-night treat. We would bring you to the stylish Lantern Rooftop Bar at the Fullerton Hotel, where you could appreciate panoramic views of the waterfront and cityscape. It's also your first chance to sample the world-famous eponymous cocktail, the Singapore Sling. Sip on the drink, take the edge off the journey, enjoy the lavish surroundings, and look forward to the rest of the trip.

Day 2
The Diversity of Singapore

Spend a day exploring Singapore's three major ethnic enclaves, and in turn, appreciate the story of how Singapore grew to become the fascinating cultural melting pot it is today.

Set off to Chinatown, a glittering blend of old and new, where traditional medicinal halls and goldsmiths sit alongside hip hotels and restaurants. Continue to Kampong Glam, the traditionally Malay ethnic enclave in Singapore and the city state's oldest urban quarter. Finally, head to Little India and discover this uniquely vibrant and colorful district. Wrap up the day in this area, where all of Singapore's unique cultures meet and blend in a beguiling mosaic of wet shops, food courts, and shopping areas.

Day 3
Hawker Food with Wine

Today, We'll try to understand the hawker culture of Singapore — community dining in multicultural urban contexts throughout Singapore. Hawkers prepare a variety of food for people who dine and mingle at "hawker centers" or "community dining rooms". There, people from diverse backgrounds gather and share breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Singapore's street food tradition is now part of UNESCO's list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Day 4
Street Art and Graffiti

Kampong Glam, known as the home of Haji Lane — a trendy street lined with chic cafés and bars and an excellent spot for Persian rugs, brightly colored textiles, and handmade perfumes. This morning, we would take you on a journey through time to find out more about its inhabitants' histories, including visiting one of the last remaining traditional barbers in modern Singapore.  

After looking at some examples in the area, and under the guidance of a watchful master, you would have the chance to create your own masterpieces. You can even take them home as a souvenir.

Day 5
Pulau Ubin Cycling

Today, we get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and go back in time with a journey to Singapore's rustic Pulau Ubin Island, a perfect example of the city's history.

Begin with a short journey to the nearby ferry terminal, board a wooden bumboat bound for the island of Pulau Ubin, and wave goodbye to the hustle and bustle of central Singapore. On arrival at the quaint island's port, swap your boat for a bicycle seat, and begin your cycling adventure!

Half Day at Sentosa

Take in impressive 360° panoramic views of Singapore's urbanity as well as the lush greenery of Mount Faber and Sentosa onboard the Singapore Cable Car to Sentosa Island.

Explore the marine realm of S.E.A. Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa, one of the world's largest aquariums. It is home to more than 100,000 marine animals of over 1,000 species, across 45 different habitats, each one as fascinating as the next. It's a marine life experience you won't forget.

Day 8
Ubud Temple and Blessing

Get a hands-on time with one of the best examples of Balinese spirituality in the village of Sebatu, about an hour outside of South Bali. Follow your guide's lead to explore these structures and learn about how they still play an important role in the lives of pious locals.

After an illuminating guided wander, travel uphill and deeper into the village to visit the site of the area's holy water. There, your guide will help you put on a traditional Balinese sarong and lead you in how to pray to the gods. With each offering having a different color of distinct significance, learn about how each hue represents a different prayer. After the procession, dip into the holy water — considered an important cleansing ritual. Wrap up your experience with lunch at a local restaurant.

Firstly, to Jatiluwih Rice Terraces for exotic landscape views. Now a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site, the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces comprise over 600 hectares of rice fields that follow the flowing topography of the Batukaru mountain range.

Then, we would visit Alas Kedaton — home to one of Bali's famed monkey forests. Featuring towering nutmeg trees, unique to this area and sacred to the Balinese people.

Lastly on to Mengwi, we visit the Former Royal Temple, Pura Taman Ayung, built in 1634 and arguably one of the most beautiful temples on the island. Upon arrival, check in to your hotel and enjoy rest of the day relaxing.

In the late evening, it's champagnes o'clock at Red Carpet Champagne Bar, boasting Indonesia's largest selection of Champagne. This Seminyak icon is cozy and intimate, with a sexy splash of course. As one might expect of a Champagne bar, there is an exclusive feel, yet the atmosphere remains light, playful, and casually fun.

Uluwatu Temple Kecak Dance with Jimbaran Dinner

Built in the 11th century, the temple provides a glimpse into ancient life in this enchanting seaside setting. Enjoy a stunning view of the Indian Ocean from 70 meters above sea level, and spend time exploring the scenery and befriending the monkeys that inhabit the temple. Hold on tightly to your hat and sunglasses, as these monkeys are notorious for their cheekiness and stealing abilities!

Before a fresh seafood dinner on the soft sands of Jimbaran, enjoy a mesmerizing Kecak Fire Dance performance on the beach.
