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.

A trip to this museum is worthwhile when you wish to learn more about the Indian heritage, influence and culture in Singapore. Today I then released that a part of the founding father of independent India, Gandhi's ashes, were also scattered in Singapore River. Overall the museum is spacious, neat and interactive. Highly recommended!

Visited this museum this afternoon. Wonderful collection which documents the arrival of the first Indians under the HEC deployed to Singapore about the time of Raffles. The museum looks at the history of migrations and the settlers. Those Indians who have raised to prominence in Singapore - S R Nathan, Rajarstnam, etc spring to mind. It looks at culture and practice, including many items of gold jewellery. Handicrafts and textiles. Religion and prominent Indians in India and their influence on Singapore. The ground floor had seven paintings on display by Kumuda Krovvidi, a contemporary artist from Mumbai now living in Singapore, and the other is Shivali Mathur - beautiful contemporary Indian folk art painters. Don’t forget to check out the three sculpture display outside the museum, depicting Masala and showing a chilli, cloves and nutmeg with mace. Allow about 1 to 2 hours to visit. $8 standard admission for adults. In the heart of Little India. Lift to all levels. Good air conditioning and excellent WiFi.

This was recommended to us by a local in a bar. I am so glad we visited! It was cheap to get in, so certainly worth it. It was really interesting and insightful with interactive opportunities. It was very modern.

The Indian Heritage Centre has permanent galleries and special exhibitions. Standing at 5 Campbell Lane, the architecture immediately draws one in. It is conveniently located near bus stops and train stations, so accessibility is not a problem. It is open to citizens and permanent residents for free, and for a nominal fee for other categories. It gives a quick overview of contact between Singapore and the Indian subcontinent over the past centuries. In addition to an auditorium, there are texts, audio clips and video clips, depicting the experiences of the Indian community in both Singapore and Malaya. Several historical artifacts show the cultural influences in the SE Asian region (for example mythological figures). Bright and colourful fabrics give a glimpse of Indian social lives. Special mention is also made of the colonial period and the contributions of the South Asian communities to Singapore in post WWII decades. I definitely recommend about a couple of hours at this fascinating place.
