Tour Details

Get away from the maddening crowd in the city to enjoy a gentle stroll in the serene and green atmosphere along this waterway. Imagine the sound of running water and chirping birds, amidst a quiet urban scape.

During the tour, you will get to know the history of Alexandra Canal, which feeds into the Singapore River, and how it forms part of Singapore’s water strategy. Witness urban renewal not only in the canal itself but also its surroundings.

As we proceed along the Singapore River, you will see historical landmarks and bridges and hear the not so oft told stories behind them.

The gentrification of this part of the city along the Singapore River before the city proper is telling. Tastefully architected luxury condominiums and elegantly restored shop houses repurposed as restaurants and bars dot the river bank.

The tour ends at Fort Canning Station, just shy of Clarke Quay. You’ll notice the atmosphere is decidedly different!

What to Expect

We start off from the beginning point of Alexandra Canal along Tanglin Road, and proceed with our unhurried stroll along the greenways by the river in the direction of the city. Before we embark on the Singapore River portion of the tour downstream, we will have short break at a local hawker center where we tuck into some selected hawker fare samplings popular with locals. After the break, we proceed downstream along the Singapore River (or Rivière Singapour as a nod to the gentrification of this area), towards Robertson Quay. The tour ends at Fort Canning Station, and you can connect to other parts of the city using the Downtown Line. Total Distance: approximately 3.5km
