Changi Airport Group (CAG), Singapore Airlines (SIA) and the Singapore Tourism Board have relaunched the Free Singapore Tour for transit and transfer passengers to the garden city.
Run by Monster Day Tours, each tour is 2.5 hours long and will be available daily, with plans to progressively increase to nine tours a day.
A brand-new Changi Precinct tour will introduce travellers to the sights and sounds of the eastern region surrounding Singapore Changi Airport, such as the rustic charms of Changi Village and Changi Beach and offers visitors a glimpse of how local residents live.
The three tours available before the Covid-19 pandemic – City Sights Tour, Heritage Tour and Jewel Tour – have been refreshed to include new points of interest.
The Jewel Tour will take participants to popular attractions like the Shiseido Forest Valley and the HSBC Rain Vortex, let them sample and learn about the city-state’s food heritage through local brands such as Bee Cheng Hiang and Tong Garden, as well as provide a free guided walkthrough of Changi Experience Studio, a digital attraction to experience some of its airport-themed games and interactive exhibits.
New pit stops in the City Sights Tour include the Civic District, where travellers will get an introduction to Singapore’s urban development through visits to various national monuments, while the Heritage Tour, available from June, will feature places of interest for a more in-depth understanding of Singapore’s unique and diverse multi-cultural heritage.
Transit and transfer passengers who wish to join the Free Singapore Tour must have a layover period of at least 5.5 hours but less than 24 hours, and will need to have a valid entry visa for Singapore to take part in the tours.
Advanced booking is required.
