WHAT: Haven’t seen the popular Chinatown Street Bazaar? You’d want to view the sights from the top deck of an open-top double decker HiPPO Bus in this HiPPO Chinese New Year Light-Up Tour. Board the bus at the Suntec Convention Centre, then make your way past iconic landmarks like the Esplanade, Marina Bay, Clifford Pier and Lau Pa Sat, before heading down to Chinatown for the light-up. If you like, you can end the tour at Chinatown for some festive shopping, otherwise, stay on board and enjoy a breezy ride back to Suntec City, which will include three auspicious loops around the Fountain of Wealth for good luck. The tour will take approximately 45 minutes. (Photo: www.ducktours.com.sg)
