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.

I could have spent a couple of hours exploring the fresh food stalls full of fish, fruits, herbs and spices. The warren of shops provide a heady experience of aromas, alas, other family members just found it too smelly.

I love wet markets and the moment I arrived here people were friendly and smiling for photos. The market is primarily catering to the Indian community although there are also sellers of Muslim and Chinese products here too. I found lots of fruits and vegetables, tofu, tempe, seafood, chicken, beef, mutton, dried goods and also packaged goods including spices, tinned goods, joss sticks etc. At the eastern side of the market is the food court which sells all kinds of foods although predominantly Indian and Indian Muslim food but I also I saw some places selling Chinese food such as chicken rice. This is a small wet and dry market but nice to see so many people chopping fish, meat and selling their goods and although I didn't eat in the food court area the food was varied and cheap.

Quite a lot of these venues around singapore. Plenty of vendors offering their local produce and cuisine. Not sure how many stars on their doors they would get back home. Tried a variety of foods. All happy

Tekka Market is an amazing market in the heart of Singapore. Fish, prawns and spices galore spill out from several beautifully arranged stalls. This is a full-on market so go early (7:45am) and dress casual. The prawn sellers are particularly good: fast, clear, knowledgeable. The vegetables were also fresh and varied. The meats, however, looked less appealing, reflecting the fact that most of it is imported. However, the presence of baby sharks for sale, some with their fins already sliced off, shocked me. I thought that sort of thing was banned? Also, it's best to wear robust shoes, like Crocs as sticky water pools around the unloading area, which is also closest to the MRT stop.

At first I wasn’t sold having come from the almost spotless and friendly streets of downtown Singapore. Look beyond the hustle and bother of little India and you’ll find the jewel. Best advise in any hawker market, look for the one where all of the locals are eating, most commonly you’ll see an old couple running it using their families secret touch. Not disappointed here at all, spicy, flavoursome and filling.
