The five-star Raffles Hotel Singapore has rolled out a number of special events and offers to celebrate its 130th anniversary this year.
From February to August 2017, guides from the National Heritage Board will be on hand to conduct a 45-minute Walk of Fame History Tours on the premises. Costing S$20 (US$14) per person, tours will take place every first Saturday of the month at three timings (10.00, 14.00 and 17.00). Tickets can be bought from the Raffles Gift Shop.
