Tour About Singapore: Free Fort Canning Legends Tour
Temasek, a small insignificant island in the southernmost point of the Malaysia Peninsula, was a little seashore village making a living out of fishing and trading. This island was an important stopover point for seafarers en route from China to India and beyond. The first Chinese voyager set foot in South east Asia even before the birth of Christ and thereafter the Nanyang Silk Route was established.
Although the history of Singapore goes back centuries, our known history was only from 700 years ago when the kingdom of Singapura was established.
From the Kingdom of Singapura to modern day Singapore, this tour commemorates the history of Singapore and the significant milestones that have led to today.
