Day 3

The day will be left pretty much free and easy, but we do suggest Universal Studios as the place to visit! Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park located within Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore. The theme park has 7 different themed areas and some of the most thrilling rides around. The area surrounding Universal Studios has a lot to offer as well, with Sentosa having some of the nicest beaches around, Adventure Cove – a water park, and S.E.A Aquarium.

Day 4

Today, the programme begins with a visit to the National University of Singapore (NUS). You will be taken on a tour of the school and experience what life as a student there is like. NUS is Singapore’s flagship university. It has been consistently ranked as the top university in Asia and one of the leading universities globally. In 2015, it was ranked 1st in Asia (2015 QS University Rankings: Asia) and 12th in the world (2015/2016 QS World University Rankings). It has 16 schools across 3 campuses and is a partner of more than 300 universities worldwide.

After lunch, you will visit Chinatown, another area that exemplifies the racial harmony of Singapore. Singapore’s historic Chinatown is a bustling mix of old and new, filled with traditional shops and markets as well as cool stores and cafes. The cramped five-foot ways, dingy alleys and raucous street hawkers are relics of Chinatown’s past. Yet, pockets of history remain in Chinatown, along with more modern sights.

Thereafter, paint the town red and hit up Clarke Quay, Singapore’s most vibrant nightlife hotspots. If you are looking for a drink at the bar, you are guaranteed to find something that suits you. There are many cafes and restaurants in the area, promising an enjoyable night.
