Duck Tours, Singapore
This is a fun family way of seeing downtown Singapore and Singapore by sea and river.
The Duck Tour will go over land and over water. This amphibious transport is a tourist version of a vehicle developed during the Vietnam War.
You will enjoy this unique experience if you have the time and the money to take a spin. Check out the time and cost and make advanced reservation to avoid disappointment especially if you are in Singapore for a short while only.
The tour statrts at Suntec. There is also a booking office on Orchard Road next to the Singapore Tourism Office near Sommerset MRT.
Many cities have the duck tours and Singapore is no exception-still it's quite interesting and fun. You get a short history of the country-drive around some key sites. You then head to the marina district and drive into the river. Quite fun! You then motor into the harbor and see the skyline and the silly Merlion statue.
From this tour-you get two perspectives of Singapore. From land and the water.
A lot of fun.
These drivable boats are remmants of the Korean and Vietnam wars when the Americans used them to bring supplies onto land.
I looked at their website and it looks like it hasn't been updated in awhile.
There are two locations: suntec city and by the Singapore visitor's center on Orchard Road-across from the Heeren.
