Singapore Tour on June 21, 2012

Our scheduled tour for the month of June is bound for Singapore. June 21, 2012 is the chosen day of departure. The deadline for acceptance of participants to this tour is on May 21, 2012. Anybody who has access to the five (5) selected airports of Manila, Iloilo, Cebu,  Cagayan de Oro and Davao can join this tour.

A. The destination

Singapore is an attractive destination today, as well as in the past. For hundreds of years, travellers have found Singapore an excellent place to stay. As far back as the 13th century, trading boats and merchant ships would take refuge in its safe harbour along the Malacca Straits, leaving Singapore a cultural heritage that is considered exotic at the present time. Singapore’s culture showcase the old traditions which are still very much alive.

You can discover Singapore in so many ways. It has a world-class public service, an award-winning airline, and a green urban city, lined up with trees, flowers and gardens. You can enjoy the Chinese antiques, traditional costumes or calligraphy of Chinatown, then smell the aroma of assorted spices at Little India and purchase a sari or some jewellry for a loved one, before proceeding to Kampong Glam and Arab Street for bazaar-style shopping.

Singapore is one of the most enjoyable cities in Southeast Asia. As you touch down in one of the world’s best airports, tree-shaded expressway and a beautiful and efficient MRT train line, you’ll quickly realize this is a city free from the usual traffic congestion in the metropolis of the cities of other countries.

In one day you can dip into the cultures of China, India and Muslim Malaysia, against a backdrop of ultra-modern Western commerce.  You don’t have to look far to find echoes of the island’s colorful past, or its creative artistic community. The streets are also super clean, with a surrounding environment free from noises that can irritate your ears.

B. Package inclusions 

3 days/2 nights package (without Sentoza)

Inclusions for the 3 days/2nights package are:

1. Round trip airfares from Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Cebu, Iloilo or Manila to Singapore and vice versa.
2. Round trip transfers from Singapore airport to chosen hotel (arrival) and vice versa (departure).
3. Three (3) days and two (2) nights hotel accommodation.
4. Daily breakfast inside the hotel (except Fragrance Crystal, which has no breakfast).
5. Standard half day city tour in Singapore (morning of day 2)
a. It is standard practice in the industry that no tours are scheduled on the day of arrival and the day of departure. Thus, you can use these free times to either walk around nearby, rest, buy souvenirs, or do what you want to do.
b. Incidental expenses that are not listed in the above inclusions are chargeable to the pocket money of tour participants.

3 days/2 nights package (with Sentoza tour)

All the inclusions specified above are also included in this package. The difference is the addition of the Sentoza tour in the afternoon of day 2. Instead of a free time, the afternoon of day 2 is utilized for the Sentoza tour. This is to maximize the use of your time in Singapore. The Sentoza tour will run for 7.5 hours, starting at 2 p.m. up to night time. Pick up time from the hotel is 1:30pm.

4days/3nights package

Inclusions for 4days/3nights package also include all the inclusions specified in the  3days/2nights package (with Sentoza tour), plus an additional one day Universal Studio tour on day 3.  Round trip transfer from hotel to Universal Studio and back is already included in the package.

5days/4nights package

Inclusions for a 5days/4nights package also include all the inclusions specified in the 4days/3nights package (with sentoza tour), plus an additional half day tour to Johor Bharu of Malaysia on day 4. Johor Bahru is part of Malaysia that is very near Singapore.

Since Johor Bahru tour requires crossing the border of Malaysia and Singapore, tourists are required to obtain a visa at the border. Tour operators take no responsibility in obtaining this visa, except providing guidance at the border. Any problem that you may encounter at the border (e.g. you are refused entry for whatever reason) is your responsibility. Thus, you cannot ask for a refund when you are refused entry. We have to stress, however, that this seldom happens. Usually, crossing the border is smooth, free from problems and fast for tourists.

The afternoon of day 4 is free time. You may go for other optional tours or just go shopping.  One option is for you to go to Batam, an island that is already part of Indonesia. Just like Johor Bahru, Batam is very near Singapore. You can take the ferry on your own, go to Batam island and back to Singapore after satisfying your own curiosity while there. Batam is also a good place to buy souvenir items.

C. Hotel accommodation

There are three choices for hotels, namely: 1. Fragrance Crystal (1-star or budget hotel), 2. Fragrance Selegie (2-star) and 3. Oxford hotel (3-star). Hotel accommodation in all packages are in a twin-sharing (two in a room) basis.

D. Price tables

You need to first read “Tour Pricing“, a page under group tours of this website, for you to properly interpret and understand the price tables that follows.

We have also made changes in the presentation of these price tables compared to our previous article entiled “Hongkong tour on May 24, 2012“. Price tables are now presented  by airport of origin and can be manipulated in three ways: 1. You can choose the no. of entries/items that are shown, 2. You can use the search button to display only those items that contain the word in your search and 3. You can scroll up or down using the small arrows at the right side bottom of the table.
