The cost is 33SGD for adults and 24SGD for children.
2. Singaporean Riverside/The Colonial District
During the colonial period, the riverside was the economic center of the city where barges transported the goods upstream toward the warehouses of the Clarke Quay. Today, you will find majestic skyscrapers alongside majestic colonial buildings with the Singapore River in the background. On the other side of the estuary, the spouting water landmark of the city state – the Merlion – is located. Along the Clarke Quay , visitors can take a stroll or use it as a wonderful start to a boat tour.
3. Sentosa Island
Sentosa Island is a small island 10 km south of Singapore, which is fully integrated into the public transport system of Singapore, and is therefore easily accessible.
