Join us for a six-day trip to magnificent Singapore. Singapore is known as a bustling metropolis that also happens to be one of the cleanest and safest cities of its size in the world. You’ll find historic sites like the Thian Hock Keng temple, superlative shopping (including gargantuan malls), beautiful gardens and numerous beaches. We’ll explore all that Singapore has to offer as well as enjoy a great day out at Kranji racecourse for the Singapore Derby.
PAYMENT – $500pp deposit due on booking, balance due 60 days before the tour begins.
Arrive at Changi Airport and make your way to our five-star hotel for check-in. After settling in, we’ll meet up in the bar before we head out for a nice local dinner to get to know everyone and hear our plans for the week.
After breakfast, we’ll be taken on a guided tour of Singapore to get the lay of the land and learn about the amazing history of the island. We’ll get a personalized experience with a private guide, who will answer all your questions as you visit local markets and hawker stalls, Singapore’s Merlion, the Gardens by the Bay, the Colonial District, and more. We may even stop in at Raffles for a Singapore Sling!
We’re up early this morning to head out to Kranji Racecourse for a private tour of a local stable and the great facilities on the course. We’ll chat with a local trainer, see some horses in the flesh and hopefully get a tip or two.
Then later in the day, we’ll head out for a little foodie tour to explore the amazing food markets Singapore has to offer.
Today is a rest day and gives everyone a chance to explore Singapore at their leisure, see more of the island, shop and do your form for Kranji tomorrow.
We’ll meet late afternoon to head out for an evening boat cruise to enjoy Singapore sights and a nice dinner.
After breakfast, we get into our finest racewear and jump on our bus back to KRANJI racecourse for the highlight of the trip.
The Singapore Derby is a time-honoured classic run on the Singapore racing calendar where top racing action and glamour come together. A Group 1 feature race, the $400,000 Singapore Derby will see Four-Year-Olds run over 1,800m on turf, bringing together the best of that age group.
Celebrate with fantastic food, drinks, and a balcony to watch the races.
After breakfast, the tour concludes and we all head our separate ways back to Australia, hopefully with some winnings from the week.
