The COVID-19 pandemic might have put a damper on travel plans this year, but that has not stopped travel companies from organising programmes to help locals rediscover Singapore.

As part of its Near Not Far staycation series to allow travel-lovers around the world to enjoy deeper, richer experiences in their home country, Trafalgar has curated a two-day, one-night Singapore tour.

As part of the tour, guests will get to explore two iconic landmarks of the Civic District, The Arts House (TAH) and Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall (VTVCH).  

Led by Trafalgar’s local specialist and renowned heritage blogger Jerome Lim of The Long & Winding Road, the experience will be enhanced with a historic climb up the VTVCH clock tower. 

Additional highlights guests can also look forward to include a ‘Be My Guest’ experience with Violet Oon at the National Kitchen at National Gallery and a guided tour of Kampong Glam to “dive into culture” at lively neighbourhood that Singapore’s early migrants once called home.

“We want to showcase that you can tour differently with Trafalgar. Too often, we choose to explore the world instead of the hidden gems right in our own backyard. As we wait for borders to reopen safely, we can restart travel here in Singapore and curate unique tour experiences that Trafalgar is well-known for worldwide,” said Mae Cheah, President of Trafalgar Asia.

“We are excited that through this partnership with Arts House Limited, we can support the arts community, help people to step back into travel responsibly and give back to local businesses and Singapore’s tourism ecosystem, all while ensuring peace of mind with our local expertise, right size groups and enhanced hygiene measures.”  

If you’re interested, the package costs $528 per person for an Orchid Club Deluxe Room at PARKROYAL on Beach Road on Fridays and Saturdays and S$628 per person for a Stamford Suite Room at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel on weekdays. 

Prices are based on twin-share and solo travellers can pay a single supplement from $200 each. 

As a start, Trafalgar will run tours for five to 10 guests on each tour.  For more information and to book, click here.
