Finally, we will proceed to Geylang (pronounced "Gay Lung"), an area synonymous with glorious food and the red light district. The lorongs ("streets" in Malay) in Geylang are numbered 1 to 42 eastward, with the red light district in the tens and great food places found all over.

River Cruise to the Grand Shanghai Restaurant
Merlion Park - River Cruise - Grand Shanghai Restaurant

(Limited Seats Only - Booking Closes 01 October, 2012 or Whenever Tickets are Sold Out)

Enjoy a scenic ride along the river that holds so much history and many memories for Singapore.
Sit back and absorb the cool breeze before the sunset.

Be awed by the sky-scrapers that tower over the river, historical monuments regally positioned, adding grandeur and age-old charm to the area and of course, the beautiful evening sky soon to be sprinkled with stars. There are many bridges in Singapore and the boat ride is a good way to see the bridges.

You will also be able to have a good view of the Merlion Park (and understand why it is so popular with tourists), as well as the beautiful sights of the Marina Bay Sands, Fullerton and Clark Quay, before disembarking at the waterfront promenade in Robertson Quay to the Grand Shanghai Restaurant for a sumptuous 8-course Chinese dinner. For Indian vegetarian option, please place your order at the time of booking.
