This is a city tour with a difference and an experience you will never forget.
Board a revamped World War II DUKw amphibious vehicle for a thrilling land and sea trip around dynamic Singapore.
View the colonial district, where handsome historic buildings sit cheek-by-jowl with ground-breaking modern architecture. Learn how a tiny island fishing village grew into the sophisticated cosmopolitan city-state you see today.
Hold your breath as your amazing DUKw plunges into Marina Bay. Admire the iconic Merlion statue, emblem of Singapore.
And look out for the extraordinary Esplanade theater. Some people say it looks like a fly's eyes; others say it resembles a tropical fruit. See what you think!
This tour is not operating from 15th to 22nd September, 2015 due to Formula 1 Race!
You will be picked up from your hotel (Singapore's major hotels only), and taken to the assembly point.
If you are not staying in one of the major hotels, then you should arrange to arrive at the assembly point at the Tourist and Transit Hub #01-05 at the Singapore Flyer 15 minutes before the tour starts.
The fun starts when you board the FunVee DUKW (pronounced ‘duck’) authentic revamped WWII amphibious vehicle. You will be escorted by an English-speaking FunVee ‘Funbassador’ to tell you all about the places you will see on your exciting Singapore Captain Explorer DUKw tour.
You will drive to the historic Colonial District, the center of British colonial rule and still the seat of Singapore’s government. It was here that modern Singapore’s founder, Sir Thomas Raffles, landed in 1819.
You can admire the splendid former Parliament House, now an arts centre. Built in 1827, this is one of the oldest colonial-era buildings in Singapore.
You will also see the new Parliament House, nearby. The prism-shaped top is a modernist version of a traditional dome. The Singapore Parliament moved here in 1999 after the old building became too small for its needs.
Another interesting pair of buildings is the old Supreme Court building and its modern counterpart. Completed in 1939, the old Supreme Court has Corinthian columns and a large dome. In June 2005, the Supreme Court relocated to the new building.
Your Funbassador will also point out the handsome City Hall. This building has witnessed many important events, including the surrender of the Japanese at the end of World War II and the declaration of home rule for Singapore in 1959.
After the colonial district highlights, the tour will take a new turn as your versatile amphibious vehicle splashes into the waters of Marina Bay.
Marina Bay is an artificial bay formed by land reclamation. You will see the famous statue of the Merlion – a lion head with a fish body resting on a crest of waves – that is Singapore’s emblem.
You will also catch splendid views of Singapore’s striking theater and concert venues, at the Esplanade. Aluminum sunshades covering the two curved roofs give the building an interesting spiky appearance. Some people think it looks like the tropical fruit known as the 'durian'.
Opened in 2002, the Esplanade contains world-class performing spaces. Only five other halls in the world have such state-of-the-art acoustics.
At the end of your exciting tour, you will be dropped off at the Tourist & Transit Hub close to the Singapore Flyer.
