Roam the jungle in the complete safety and comfort of a tram, which takes you through the East and West Loop. Pass by a large reservoir and weave through selected habitats designed specifically to replicate the natural environment from the Himalayan Foothills, to the south-east Asian rain-forest and Indian subcontinent.

It’s no mystery why the term ‘wet’ is used – as stall owners use water in the market to wash floors, to keep fruits and vegetables fresh, and to keep fish and shellfish alive. Check out local favourites like century egg, black chicken and wide array of spices. Next adjourn to Singapore’s largest food centre, Chinatown Complex, for a leisurely breakfast. End your trip on a sweet note with a sampling of local desserts. Please note: includes pick-up from city hotels to tour centre, then to Chinatown. Excludes drop-off at hotel.
