    Enjoy a relaxing cruise

    One of our very favourite things to do in Singapore is to take a cruise on the Admiral Cheng-Ho, a copy of an ancient Chinese sailing vessel. We have done this cruise a number of times, and it is always a pleasure. The vessel has an upper and lower deck, and there is plenty odf shade available.
    Tea & Coffee is complimentary.
    There are 3 types of cruise to choose from:
    Morning Tea Cruise- S$27.00pp- departs at 10.30am
    High Tea Afternoon- S$32.00pp- departs at 3.00pm
    Dinner cruise at sunset:S$55.00pp-departs at 6.30pm

    After leaving the Marina South Pier, you cruise around the island, and a magnificent alternative view of Singapore skyline is a perfect photo opportunity. After passing various palm fringed islands, the boat stops off at Kusu Island, which is home to the Sacred Turtles. Turtle feeding is allowed, and I usually take along a breadroll.
    Drop a coin into the lucky fountain while you make a wish.

    Another amazing sight on this cruise is to see the endless and varied number of ships that lie in the lanes around Singapore. They stretch as far as the eye can see, waiting to enter the harbour.

    We have done the morning tea cruise, and the High Tea cruise. The cakes and pastries are absolutely delicious, and plenty for all. Tea and coffee freely available throughout the cruise.

    I recommend that you use plenty of sunscreen, and drink gallons of bottled water, and wear a sun hat.
    A really wonderful trip, and should not be missed.

    There are a few different cruises to choose from, so its best to check out the website.
    We did the "Morning Glory Cruise" It departed from the Marina South Pier at 10.30 am and lasted for 21/2 hours. Tea or Coffee and light refreshments are included in the price.
    The Boat is really lovely, quite ornate.

    A 1/2 stopover is included at Kusu Island, where there is a temple and a lot of Tortoises.

    Cost in 2011 is $27 adults $14 children

    A nice relaxing way to see the sights.
