Singapore River Cruises | The Merlion Our iconic Merlion is one of THE things to visit on a Singapore tour! This statue symbolises the beginnings of Singapore as a fishing village and the original name “Singapura” meaning “lion city” in Malay. There are many stories as of why the city was named “Singapura”. One of them is that the prince who has founded Singapore saw a lion and named this island after it. So when you are on a Singapore boat tour, make sure you have your camera ready for your shot of the iconic Merlion! #boattour #harbourcruise #sailing #cruising #singaporetour #hellosingapore #adventure #tourism #travelbug #wanderlust #singaporeriver #boatquay #robertsonquay #port #traveloften #discoversingapore #visitsingapore #bbctravel #instatravel #merlion #lioncity #singapura #temasek #privatetour #personaltour #customisedtourRead More

We spend 1.5 hours here giving you plenty of time to relax and watch the sunset or, if you are feeling active, to try stand up paddle boarding , kayaking or have a sunset swim.
Your friendly crew will share stories with you about Singapore’s Southern Islands and their significance in the maritime industry.
