Tuesday Small-Group Discovery Walk: Historic Civic District
Price: $75 / ticket
Explores the impressive colonial-era buildings of Singapore’s historic Civic District—including the beautiful Fullerton Building (former General Post Office), the National Gallery (former Supreme Court & City Hall buildings), the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Victoria Concert Hall & Theatre, and the Arts House (former Parliament building).
Learn about why, how, and when Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in this sparsely populated island in January 1819 to set up a trading post on behalf of the East India Company. Explore his vision for its future and how he devised an early city plan.
You also cross Cavenagh Bridge, the only suspension bridge in Singapore, as you discover the importance of the Singapore River in our country's trading history.
After a coffee break at the National Gallery we’ll go to the roof to enjoy spectacular views of the Civic District. We end our visit at the nearby St. Andrew Cathedral.
Please note confirmation of this tour includes the exact meeting place and will be sent by email to all those registered about 24 hours in advance; this will be preceded by a LHOKO message to all registered.

“I particularly love the Tuesday walks exploring the different distinct areas of Singapore...including Tiong Bahru, Kampong Glam, Geylang and The Botanic Gardens to name a few. Jane and her team are knowledgeable without being over -facing; interesting in the telling of local stories and fun to be with. “
