Things To Do

in Singapore

View of the street with Masjid Sultan in the background in Singapore

Multicultural Medley

Singapore has four official languages and even more ethnicities that have influenced its culture. Discover the city's Muslim heritage at Sultan Mosque along Arab Street and its Chinese character (and food!) in Chinatown. Little India is the heart of the city's Tamil Indian community, while Kampong Glam is the epicenter of Malay-speaking Singapore.

Two Sides of Nature

Singapore's tropical landscape is as diverse as its culture. The Singapore Botanic Garden (and adjoining Orchid Garden) approach horticulture from a more traditional perspective, while the spacey Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay would seem more at home in "Avatar" than an issue of "Better Homes and Gardens."

Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore

Zoom In, Zoom Out

Head to the rooftop of the massive Marina Bay Sands to enjoy a panorama of the Singapore skyline, which is also beautiful as seen from the city's symbolic Merlion statue on the other side of the bay. Or visit a more inward-looking Singapore icon when you order an original Singapore Sling cocktail at the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel.

Wantan Mee, popular street food noodles with bbq pork, in Singapore

Local Cuisine

The best way to get a cross-section of Singaporean cuisine is to visit its street vendors, or hawkers, in hubs like Tiong Bahru. Jump onboard a Singapore cruise to try Cantonese-derived wantan mee noodles, with dumplings and yellow egg noodles topped with slices of char siu pork. Snack on chai tow kway, also called carrot cake, even though it's made from rice flour and daikon radish fried with eggs in pork fat.

Colorful variety of chopsticks in a small shop in Chinatown, Singapore

Shopping

Singapore is a shopper's paradise, whether you stick to the high-end boutiques of Orchard Road or the local shops throughout the city. One way to guarantee a special souvenir during your Singapore cruise vacation is to shop in the city's ethnic neighborhoods: Seek out chopsticks and lacquerware in Chinatown or incense and South India dolls in Little India.

INSIDER TIP

Taxis in Singapore are plentiful, but locals increasingly use applications (namely, the "Grab" app) to get around. Consider downloading this before you dock in Singapore.

The statue of Guanyin or Goddess of Mercy at Chinese buddhist temple, Penang, Malaysia

Rich in Religions

Penang is rich in distinctive architecture from many of the world's religions. See the fresco-covered Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, the only Burmese temple outside of Myanmar with your cruise to Penang. Check out Taoist Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) Temple — built in 1728, it's Penang's oldest religious site. Or head to Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple, covered with colorful soldiers and goddesses.

A close up of fresh oyster mixed into an omelette

Local Cuisine

Penang is world-renowned for its street food. Snack on an oyster omelette, in which oysters are fried with eggs and scallions and made crispy with rice flour. Experience the region's Indian influence with tandoori chicken and naan bread. Try Penang's signature dessert, cendol — shaved ice with coconut milk topped with palm sugar, sweet beans and green gummies made from pandan leaf jelly.

Souvenir shops in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia

Shopping

The Penang Perankan Mansion houses historic beaded shoes of Nonya design — look for replicas in the shops and street vendors throughout George Town. Check out the Chowrasta Bazaar for handmade clothing, antique watches, traditional fans and other unique finds.

Langkawi leaves beach lovers positively spoiled for choice. For a mix of natural beauty and a lively social scene, head to popular Pantai Cenang. Or get a taxi to the northern tip of the island and Tanjung Rhu, whose secluded sands are perfect for relaxation.

Seven wells waterfall with rocks into a stream of water in Langkawi, Malaysia

Enter the Wild

If you have the time, do yourself a favor and enjoy Langkawi's emerald interior. Hike to the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, which are also known as the Seven Wells due to the seven pools at their foot. Or summit Gunung Raya, whose 2,400-foot peak offers one of Langkawi's most impressive panoramas.

Statue of the Eagle Square in Langkawi, Malaysia

Selfie Spots

Of course, you don't need to over-exert yourself to enjoy a great view — or a perfect selfie. Ride Langkawi's Cable Car to the 2,000-foot high SkyBridge for panoramic views and a death-defying walk above the rainforest. Then head down to Kuah Jetty, where you can snap another selfie with Langkawi's iconic Eagle statue (the island's name means "Strong Eagle" in Old Malay).

Nasi Lemak is a local cuisine in Langkawi, Malaysia consisting of rice with coconut cream, meats, and veggies

Local Cuisine

Like the rest of Malaysia, Langkawi is a culinary melting pot that blends Muslim Malay food, Hokkien Chinese cuisine and spicy Indian flavors. Cruise to Langkawi to try traditional nasi lemak, with fragrant coconut rice, vanilla-esque Pandan leaves and spicy, garlicky sambal wrapped in a banana leaf. Or feast of char kway teow, stir-fried rice cakes spiced with chilies and topped with shrimp and bean sprouts.

Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads.

Shopping

Langkawi is a duty-free zone, so no matter where you get your shopping done, a bargain is never far away. Head to Pantai Cenang's Zon complex or Langkawi Parade Megamall in Kuah for deals on electronics, liquor, clothing — you name it. To find authentic local items during your Langkawi cruise, look for handmade batik or songket prints, made from silk or cotton and patterned with gold and sliver threads.

INSIDER TIP

Heed warnings about jellyfish, which can unfortunately appear in Langkawi's waters year-round. Even if no warning is posted, keep an eye on the water at your feet to make sure none are present.

DAY 4 - TENDERED

Phuket, Thailand

ARRIVES:
8:00 AM
DEPARTS:
8:00 PM

FUN IN PHUKET

Then, meet the local wildlife: Pet elephants at the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary or hang out with macaques on Monkey Hill — great mountain views await here, too. Or enjoy the islands just off the coast: Head to James Bond Island and see the distinctive pointy rock you may remember from 1974's "The Man With the Golden Gun."

Big-Screen Islands

Pha Nga Bay has several karst islands that can be explored by longtail boat, including the sheer cliffs of James Bond Island, featured in "The Man With the Golden Gun." Some islands are shaped like doughnuts with shallow calm water inside, only reachable at low tide. Popular Phi Phi (pronounced "pee-pee") Island was featured in the movie "The Beach."

Snorkeling at Phi Phi Island, Phuket, Thailand

Get Underwater

The waters surrounding Phuket have great snorkeling and scuba diving, thanks to the bay's warm, clean waters and lively marine ecosystems. Snorkel off the beach at Ao Sane, next to Nai Harn Beach, at Kata Noi or near Patong at Paradise Beach. Drift past anemones, parrot fish and various types of coral.

The big buddha statue at the temple, monastery in Phuket, Thailand

Big Buddha

Above Nakkerd Hills is a 147-foot-tall white Buddha statue, which you can see from many parts of the island — hike up to the statue itself, which is surprisingly uncrowded. It's covered in Burmese white jade marble, and next to it is a smaller Buddha made from brass. The trek also comes with the bonus of breathtaking views down to the sea.

Colorful thai food in bowls with shrimp pad thai and bowls of rice

Local Cuisine

Sample Thailand's famous cuisine at street stalls or sit-down restaurants. If you're not sure what to order, ask for pad kra prao — stir-fried meat (usually chicken or pork) prepared with chili peppers and Thai holy basil. The level of spiciness can be tailored to your taste, and adding in a fried egg is optional — though highly recommended.

Traditional buddha souvenirs sold in Thailand

Shopping

Silks are always a good buy in Thailand; choose from scarves in every color, pillowcases or clothing. Cruise to Phuket and pick up a carved elephant in wood, metal or stone. At home, place it facing a doorway for good feng shui.

INSIDER TIP

Negotiate carefully for transportation on longtail boats and taxis — writing down the agreed upon price can prevent disputes.

INSIDER TIP

Although Singaporeans speak English natively, the accent (lovingly called "Singlish") can sometimes be tricky to grasp at first. If you don't understand what someone says to you, politely ask them to repeat.
