Bugis, Little India & Singapore River Trishaw Expedition by Trishaw Uncle
For a traditional twist to a tour on wheels, hop on a trishaw, a bicycle with a sidecar, which will take you meandering through the streets of Singapore’s most colourful districts. Trishaws first made their appearance in Singapore in the early 1900s, and have since evolved from a common mode of transport to a means of travel mostly geared towards tours and sightseeing.
The Bugis, Little India & Singapore River Trishaw Expedition lasts approximately 45 minutes (subject to traffic conditions). Tickets cost SGD 49/adult and SGD 39/child. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +65 6337 7111. Click here to find out more.

Bike and Bites Tour by Let’s Go Tour Singapore Pte Ltd
Mix things up a little when you sign up for the Bike and Bites Tour, a tour that’s part cycling and part on foot (so it’s easier to explore the winding roads of precincts like Little India). On this tour, you’ll learn about Singapore’s history through seeing its culture up-close, and also through sampling plenty of local food. Have a hearty, local meal at no-frills coffee shops, then work those calories off by walking and cycling to your next destination.
A tour guide will take you to some of the most intriguing neighbourhoods of Singapore, such as Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Tiong Bahru Housing Estate, Boat Quay, and more.
The Bike and Bites Tour lasts approximately 9 hours. Tickets are at SGD 180/pax and SGD 165/pax for groups of more than 1. Book online or call +65 9004 4332.
City by the Water Kick-scooter Tour by Betel Box Asia Pte Ltd
You can always embark on a kick-scooter ride, if you’re feeling adventurous. Kick-scoot along the city’s waterways while you see Singapore’s landscapes and learn about the Singapore story. You’ll get to marvel at the architecture of the museum buildings in the Civic District, the history and hubbub of the Singapore River, the expanse of green at Marina Barrage, the towering Supertrees and Flower Dome of Gardens by the Bay, just to name a few.
Food’s on the agenda too. You’ll head to Satay by the Bay where you can feast on satay (grilled meat skewers) to your heart’s content. The tour includes a local guide to show you around the city and a kick-scooter familiarisation session to get you started.
