    It is easy to enjoy Singapore with the Original Tour bus system. The hop-on and hop-off system allows you to tour at your own leisurely pace. Spot an interesting place or sight? Simply hop off and walk around and you can continue the tour later by hopping on the next original tour bus. With 1 bus arriving every 25 minutes, the Original Tour buses link you to major sights, attractions and hotels which double as a transportation system and make it easy and convenient for you to move around!

    Hop on to our iconic brown buses and take a walk around Tiong Bahru, Singapore’s oldest housing estate turned veteran hipster suburb, before immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of Chinatown. Learn about Singapore’s Chinese culture and history, and how early Chinese immigrants worked and lived during those early years.

    Afterwards, visit the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, Singapore’s very own version of the Sydney Opera House at the Marina Bay. Affectionately known among locals as the ‘Durian’, the Esplanade houses a world-class theatre, concert hall, and performance spaces.
