Balinese Dancers
Welcome to Singapore, a city-state at the crossroads of culture that warmly embraces the kaleidoscope of people that call the country home. Awe-inspiring, futuristic attractions like Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands have enhanced the city skyline while maintaining the country's historic neighborhoods crisscrossed by crowded side streets teeming with traditional vendor stalls. Nicknamed the “City in a Garden,” Singapore is covered in greenery and full of impressive gardens, such as the Singapore Botanic Garden, which is home to the world’s largest orchid display.
Continue your Asian adventure in Bali. Stay in artistic and wonderfully serene Ubud, the cultural epicenter of this lush and laid-back island. Hindu temples adorn the urban landscape while looming volcanoes and vibrant green rice terraces decorate the horizon. Ubud is the town where time takes a break, where days among the restaurants, cafes, and artisan street stalls inadvertently turn to weeks. You’ll have a hard time leaving Ubud and an even harder time forgetting it!

Enjoy a panoramic city tour, including the Civic District, the Padang, Parliament House, Supreme Court, and City Hall. View Marina Bay at Merlion Park, where you'll meet Singapore's 28-foot national icon, the mythical Merlion, a sculpture fountain whose head is of a lion and whose body is of a fish. Continue to the spectacular National Orchid Garden, which is perched atop the highest hill within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a horticultural treasure more than 150 years old. The following day, explore Singapore at leisure or join an optional excursion to Gardens by the Bay, a dramatic and colorful display of flora and fauna artistically arranged and a must-see attraction. Transfer to the airport to board your flight to Bali, arriving later that day.
Day 7-10
Unlike the rest of Indonesia, the predominant religion in Bali is Hinduism, and this morning, visit Taman Ayun and Ulun Danu, two beautiful Hindu temples located on peaceful, scenic Bratan Lake. Later, explore colorful Candi Kuning Market, a great place to enjoy the local market culture and practice your negotiating skills. While green terraces and planted fields stretch across the entire island, the amazing Jatiluwih rice terraces, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, enchant visitors with their beauty and unique "Subak" system of village cooperatives. Enjoy the following two days at leisure to explore the wonders of Bali on your own or join an Eat, Pray, Love Day Tour and a Balinese Cooking Class. Transfer to the airport for your flight back home on the final day, or join an optional extension to Nusa Dua.
