The city-state of Singapore offers many activities worth checking out. Among these, harbor cruises are a good choice for newcomers to the area looking to get their bearings.
One option is via an exact replica of a famous Imperial vessel of the Ming Dynasty era, which combines historic transportation and modern day amenities. After making your way down to the Harbourfront Centre, you will pass the mouth of the Singapore River and proceed into the harbor where you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the city’s distinctive skyline amid the hustle and bustle of one of the world’s busiest ports.
Afternoon tea harbour cruises in Singapore feature a wide selection of pastries and savories menu options, with stopovers at Kusu Island (except during Kusu Festival) where you’ll tour an ancient Chinese Temple.
The Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore (also known as the International Cruise Terminal, or the MBCCS) is a new cruise terminal in Singapore located at Marina South next to the Marina South Pier. Construction on the MBCCS began in 2009 and was completed in May, 2012. Millions of tourists are expected to pass through the area in coming years, so it’s a good idea to book your cruise before you arrive in the city. More than 50 international cruise lines serve Singapore’s port, making it an ideal jumping off point for tours of the surrounding region, including Sisters Island, Kusu, St John’s Island, Lazura’s Island, and many other destinations as well.
