As we embark on the journey, catch a glimpse of the mythical Merlion, and listen to how this creature originated 600 years ago, when Singapore was still a tiny fishing village. Fast forward 100 years and discover how the arrival of British forces changed Singapore’s path forever, giving rise to the 3 ethnic precincts of Chinatown, Little India, and Kampong Glam (Arab enclave).

As you make your way back to Suntec City, find out how the little red dot of Singapore was declared an independent country, and today has hit the milestone of more than 50 years of independence.
