About
On 6th February 1819, Singapore was claimed as a trading outpost of the British Empire to "secure to the British flag the maritime superiority of the Eastern seas". In governance, religion, entertainment, and many other spheres, the imprint of Singapore's colonial past is indelible. This is the Walk where you will see some magnificent architecture of those times, including St. Andrew's Cathedral, The Supreme Court, CHIJMES, the National Gallery Singapore and more. Also, learn about Singapore's national flower, the Sarkies brothers, The Straits Times and finish at one of the most famous hotels in the world, Raffles Hotel, where the drink called 'the Singapore Sling' comes from.

A fantastic tour
Oct 2019
This was my first time in Singapore, and this was an important part of the trip as we brought our grandfather with us. We did email I Asia Singapore to send the best guide and the certainly did that. The guide Evelyn was incredibly informative and set just the right tone of both friendliness and seriousness. She learned the names of everyone in our group, and when she learned our grandfather has such a connection with Singapore, she made sure to make this tour all more special. What an amazing experience and thanks I Asia Singapore
