2 Day Singapore Tour: Massage, Food and Sightseeing

by Tera
(Calamvale, QLD, Australia)

Hello, we arrive from France at night on the 27th May approx 6pm. We would like to have a couples massage to help us relax from our 14-hour flight.

We have all day on the 28th and all day 29th before our flight back to Australia at night.

we love to sample authentic Singapore food, pick up some gifts, and visit the famous Raffles Hotel. Do they still do morning tea with the orang utans?

We are open to any itinerary to see as much of Singapore. This is our first time visiting.

Hi Tera

Massage on Day 1 Evening

My Foot Reflexology has a few outlets within the restricted zone of Singapore Airport. Their services range from foot massages to full body massages. I believe their facilities are for individual massage only, not the 'couples' massage you specified.

If you plan on using their service at the airport, you should go straight to one of their outlets upon landing. After your massage, you then clear immigration checks and collect your luggage from Lost & Found Counter (remember to keep your baggage tabs properly).

Otherwise, you could also use one of their outlets in town. Here are the airport and city outlets of My Foot Reflexology.

If you must absolutely have a 'couples' massage together, you could the Two-gether Package at Spa Botanica on Sentosa Island.

Map for Days 2 & 3:
When you arrive at Singapore Airport, approach the Visitors' Centre and ask for a free city map. This map will help you move around the sights for Days 2 and 3.

Day 2 - Raffles Hotel, Bras Basah, Bugis, Little India

The sights on Day 2 are arranged so that you could walk from one to the next...


Take the MRT to City Hall Station and begin the day at the Raffles Hotel Museum. It's free and provides a glimpse into life in Singapore during the colonial era.

There are quite a few boutiques to browse here. Wrap up your visit to Raffles Hotel with a Singapore Sling at the Long Bar or with a curry lunch at the Tiffin Room.


Browse the fascinating shops at Bras Basah Complex (books, comics, art & craft, hobby craft galore).

Further up the road, you'll find Bugis Junction and Bugis Street Bazaar. Both are worth a look if you are looking to get souvenirs, clothes, shoes, etc.
