If you've ever wanted to ride in a Vespa Sidecar, this is your chance! Don't wait on it, this tour is available for a limited time only and these Vespas are far and few between!
Begin your spin on a Vintage Vespa Sidecar in the Malay enclave of Kampong Glam. Kampong Glam, formerly the seat of Malay royalty, is best known for its two major landmarks: Sultan Mosque, Singapore’s oldest & largest mosque, and the Istana Kampung Glam, the former Sultan’s palace (now known as the Malay Heritage Centre).
A Malay / Muslim community characterized by many traditional businesses: textile wholesalers, spice traders and perfumers, Muslim food caterers, retailers of gemstones and rattan handicraft, yet today trades in the area have diversified and changed over the years; drawing an increasingly young and diverse group of visitors to this district, which has revived the connection between this district and the wider Singaporean and international environment.
Think trendy cafes, thrift stores and one-of-a-kind handmade Persian rugs you cannot find anywhere else! Experience Singapore’s narrowest lane, its largest Mosque, fascinating artistic doodles on walls and public spaces and a potpurri of local sights and sounds.
The historic Long Bar is the home of the iconic Singapore Sling. . The Singapore Sling, widely regarded as the national drink, was first created in 1915 by Raffles bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. Primarily a gin-based cocktail, the Singapore Sling also contains pineapple juice, lime juice, curaçao and Bénédictine. Giving it the pretty pink hue are grenadine and cherry liqueur. Bartender Ngiam deliberately chose to give the cocktail this rosy colour.
