Singapore Walking Tours – Traditional, Contemporary or Both

Singapore Architectural Tours can focus on traditional buildings, contemporary buildings or both. The Singapore Architecture Tour route is tailored to your group’s interests.

Walking Tours of Singapore can involve advice (for an agreed fee) ahead of trips about types and areas of buildings.

We consider client’s specific interests to form our Singapore Architecture Tours. These city walks are not formulaic, but typically introduce the city’s main buildings followed by the latest architectural designs.

We can provide information on programme, geographical areas and building types up to a year ahead of your tour. For example a group of architects interested in innovative Singapore housing could be provided with tailored information allowing a tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit to Southeast Asia.

Visitors can be met from the airport, their accommodation, or at the starting point of their architectural walking tour.
