Don’t forget to check out the UNESCO world heritage site Botanic Gardens, glamourous and glitzy locations where the hit movie Crazy Rich Asian was filmed, like Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay. Choose a 1-day Classic Ticket and hop off at any stop to explore Singapore your way. Pick a 2-day Premium Ticket for another day on the bus.

The voucher sent was quickly sent and accepted. The tour was eventful and for the next time (or if you want to explore Singapore for the first time) a 48-hour ticket is better because you can then stay longer at different stops of the Hop on Hop off tour and not always look for the next bus must because the day is quickly coming to an end before impressions of the city. The drivers were friendly and the tour was very enjoyable and relaxing with explanations of each stop via audio headphones.

Really good way to see the city and learn about the history and culture of Singapore. We done both routes, good commentary and lots of great information about the areas, attractions and sights.

Best way to see a city on limited time. Clean buses and very informative.
