Singapore Tours | Let’s Talk Singlish! Singapore English derives its roots from 146 years (1819–1965) of British colonial rule over Singapore. Prior to 1967 the standard form of English in Singapore had always been British English and Received Pronunciation. After Singapore declared independence in 1965, English in Singapore began to take a life of its own, leading to the development of modern-day Standard Singapore English. At the same time, Singlish evolved among the working classes who learned English without formal schooling. The vocabulary of Singlish consists of words originating from English, Malay, Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, Tamil and to a lesser extent various other European, Indic and Sinitic languages. Also, elements of American and Australian slang have come through from imported television series and films. On your Singapore activities, you will hear a lot of this fun language. Just go on private tours Singapore and soak in the Singlish! #singaporean #welovesingapore #exploresingapore #meetthelocals #instagood #photooftheday #sg #tourism #travelbug #natgeotravelpic #lonelyplanet #hellosingaporetours #ilovesg #hellosg #streetsofsingapore #singaporetour #visitsingapore #singlish #privatetours #personaltours #tourguide #privateguide #personalguide #singlishlah #soshiok photo credit: quoraRead More

Singapore City Tours | Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 中秋快乐! If you are on a Singapore city tour this time of the year, you will see that everybody is very excited as it is time for our Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected: Gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival. It’s said the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day which means family reunion. And this is the main reason why people think mid-autumn is important. If you go to a restaurant on your private tours Singapore, you will see they are busier than usual. Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions. Praying(asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future. Traditions and myths surrounding the festival are formed around these concepts, although traditions have changed over time due to changes in technology, science, economy, culture, and religion. It’s about well being together. Ask your tour guide to show you the best place to look for the best decorated place on your Singapore city tour. #instagood #photooftheday #singapore #sg #lonelyplanet #hellosingaporetours #ilovesg #hellosg #sgfestivals #culture #midautumnfestival #harvestfestival #moonfestival #offerings #temple #gods #mooncakes #visitsingaporeRead More

Singapore Day Tours | Masjid Sultan (Sultan Mosque) On a Singapore tour, there is no way that you will miss out on the multi-cultural nature of our little red dot! You will find Churches, Buddhist Temples, Hindu Temples and Mosques. The most famous mosque by far is Masjid Sultan in the historic Kampong Glam district. Here we see two of our guests who visited the Sultan Mosque on their Singapore city tour with us. It was built in 1824 for Sultan Hussein Shah, the first sultan of Singapore. When the Muslim community grew bigger in Singapore having become an important centre for Islamic commerce, culture and art, the mosque soon became too small to accommodate everybody. Around about that time the Masjid Sultan was due for some repairs and Swan and Maclaren, Singapore’s oldest architectural office, created the new mosque that over 5,000 contributed to. Each dome base is decorated with glass bottle ends, donated by poor Muslims during its construction so that all Muslims, not just the rich, could contribute. If you are taking a Singapore city tour with us your guide will point out the bottles. In 1975 the Masjid Sultan was declared a preserved historical building under the patronage of the Preservation of Monuments Board Act. In January 2016, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officiated Completion of the Refurbishment & Restoration project and also inaugurated the Opening of the Glass Lift at the mosque main building. In October 2016, was awarded the prestigious Architectural Heritage Award 2016 from the Urban Redevelopment Authority. Our Singapore day tours are the perfect opportunity for every architecture fan (but also people interested in history) to visit this amazing beautiful building. Ask your Singapore tour guide to include the Sultan Mosque to your itinerary. #design #masjidsultan #photooftheday #singapore #sg #lonelyplanet #hellosingaporetours #ilovesg #hellosg #streetsofsingapore #wanderlust #buildings #sglife #wanderlust #discoversingapore #discoversg #visitsingapore #sultanmosque #kampongglam #multicultural #hometomany #diversity #arabstreet #hajilaneRead More
