Singapore Duck Tour

61 reviews
Explore Singapore on a 1-hour duck tour, known officially as DUCKtours®, which allows you to see city sights by both land and water. On ‘the duck,’ an amphibious military vehicle that was refurbished from World War II, you’ll drive around the city to check out attractions like the Fountain of Wealth and Singapore Flyer. Then hit the water to cruise past landmarks like the Merlion, Singapore’s famous statue that sits where the Singapore River meets Marina Bay. Audio commentary is included.

This was the best museum we went to. it touched on the people who made this island their home. I was unaware so many cultures arrived, which made the island so multicultural.

If you would like to understand the history of the Peranakan culture and the history, this is the place to check out. There they will show you all of the information on how the Peranakan people come about and how the evolution of the culture changes along the time while maintaining the root of the cultrure.

A must to drop in. RM20 per person regardless local or non-local. But for RM20 it is definitely worth it. Very intricate design of both the structure of the mansion and all its hidden gem. Will take you back to the 18th Century thru its precious antiques and historical photos. There are various elements of fusion between east meets west embedded in design of furnitures etc. Time spent: 30 minutes up to 1 hour + Pay a little bit more attention on the details and you can see some hidden symbolism. A must to drop in

The museum explains the origin of the Peranakan culture. It was thoughtfully arranged with period exhibits and explored the groups beliefs, traditions and lifestyle. I found it very informative and well worth visiting.

Interesting walking trail to discover the Peranakan and different Chinese cultures and heritage. Museum is tacked away in the heart of the financial district. Artistic pieces (original) and option of replica design. Very limited street parking.
