The history of Singapore is closely tied to our waterways. Its primary reason for its existence and prominence was its geographical location; at the crossroads of the China-India and Asia-Europe trading routes.
Singapore has evolved from a third world country to a first world one within two decades. Much of the urban development is designed and planned to allow for sustained growth for commerce, communities and recreation.
Kick scooter with me as I give an alternative perspective of how these changes have impacted the communities and how new developments will bring about regeneration of certain districts. Learn also about our dependence and adaptation to limited water resources, and, the management of our waterways.

"We did a private kick scooter tour with 4 boys aged 9 and 13 who found the opportunity to scooter around the Marina Bay area pretty awesome. Tony is an excellent guide, full of information and interesting facts about the history and recent development of the area. The scooters are stable and easy to get the hang of even though I had never previously tried to ride one. Highly recommend this tour for families with older children. "
