Singapore (IAS)

What’s the best way to see one of the world’s great melting pots? A Monograms vacation, of course! With Monograms, seeing Singapore is simple, not stressful. We coordinate hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, and private guided sightseeing for you so that your 4-day escape gives you the best bang for your buck. Plus, we provide you with a Local Host®—someone to ensure that you don’t miss Singapore’s must-see sights.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Singapore. We can arrange transportation for you from the airport to your hotel, where your Local Host will greet you and help familiarize you with the city. The next day, enjoy an included breakfast before embarking on a private guided tour. Your guide will show you all of the highlights, taking you to visit the Peranakan Museum for a look into the history of the Peranakan people, on a walking tour of Chinatown, and finally, to Marina Bay, where you ascend to Sands Skypark to admire beautiful views of the city and its surroundings. The following day you are free to continue exploring Singapore on your own. Check with your Local Host for recommendations on all the best things to see and do.

So, forget the stress that comes with planning your own vacation. Between the sightseeing and guides we have arranged, the breakfasts we have included, and the hotel we’ve booked, your only job is to take it all in and enjoy an exciting stay in Singapore!

Meet a Local Host®

I am a local Chinese Singapore citizen. I am very friendly and communicate well with Monograms' clients. I am a very experienced guide, holding an STB (Singapore Tourism Board) license since 1980. I started guiding when I was 26 years old. I am married with two children.

Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel

Stop at Long Bar at the Raffles, where the Singapore Sling was born sometime between 1910 and 1915. The original recipe was lost, so this traditional cocktail has been modified through the years. Today it includes gin, cherry brandy, Benedictine, grenadine, Cointreau, pineapple and lime juice, a dash of angostura bitters, and fruit to garnish. The dress code is relaxed, so women should wear a casual dress or skirt, and men should wear a sports shirt, slacks or Bermuda shorts, and appropriate footwear.

Lau Pat Sat

Housed in the largest Victorian cast-iron structure left in Southeast Asia, this once thriving market is now a popular food destination for Singaporean locals. Here you will find a vast array of Asian foods to fit any taste. At night, Boon Tat Street is closed to traffic, and the food stalls move to the street, where you can watch street musicians perform.

Orchard Road

This ultra-fashionable shopping area of Singapore is popular for both tourists and locals alike. From the latest fashions to intriguing antiques, it is the place to shop and people watch. If shopping is not your thing, the National Museum of Singapore is well worth a visit. Located on the east end where Orchard Road turns into Bras Basah Road, the museum uses a storytelling approach that allows you to choose your own path into the past. The events path outlines the events and characters important to Singapore’s history, and the personal path tells stories through the eyes of the man on the street.

Wala Wala

This laid-back bar is the perfect place to spend the night after a long day. Live music is featured nightly and more often than not, patrons find themselves singing back-up vocals on several pop classics. For dinner, they serve up some great western food including pizza and chicken wings.

Singapore Flyer

Discover Singapore on top of Asia's most iconic architectural and engineering marvel. From sunrise until sunset, experience the breathtaking views of Singapore and beyond from this giant observation wheel. See the magnificent Marina Bay, towering skyscrapers, tropical greenery, the bright lights, and non-stop action against the beautiful skies.

Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

With a décor and atmosphere reminiscent of a 1950s coffee shop, Chin Mee Chin, known as CMC, is a local favorite. As you enter, the smell of fresh coffee (roasted on site) and confections will bring a smile to your face. They offer a variety of baked goods—from Swiss rolls to cream puffs—but the real star is the Kaya toast. Kaya is a traditional jam made from eggs, sugar, and coconut milk. Stop by for a bite to eat and a cup of coffee served the old school way—in a cup and saucer—and you may never view coffee shops in the same light.

Magical Makansutra Food Safari

If you aren’t comfortable sampling the local street food on your own, this food safari is a great option. Lasting about three hours, each safari introduces you to some of Singapore’s best street foods, including Bak Kut Teh (pork ribs in tea soup) and Roti Prata (Indian pancakes).

Kampong Glam and Arab Street

Nothing in Singapore beats Arab Street for bazaar-style shopping with true ethnic character. The street itself is a riot of colorful textiles from all over Asia, sold at very low prices. Here you can browse through hole-in-the-wall shops; haggle to your heart's content and come away with the most delightful purchases at bargain prices. The little streets in this area form the historical focal point of Muslim life in Singapore.
