Singapore and Indonesia / Eastern island hopping

When an archipelago swathed in lush rainforest and the ultimate urban playground unite, it proves that jumping between island’s isn’t just reserved for the Mediterranean.

Proud to be the melting pot of cultures that has just got bigger over the years, Singapore has the evidence to show that it’s more than just a gateway city. Spend a busy three days wandering the streets that blend restored colonial architecture with futuristic design, to introduce both newbies and long-time returners to the history of the region. It’s where the treasures of Peranakan artefacts meet vintage Vespas that whizz among the most explosive of street art scenes. Hand in hand, of course, with a true-blue Peranakan born local and modern-Malay media personality offering a personal anecdote and a foodie’s favourite tip, that will earn even the fussiest eaters a new favourite dish.

Heading into the wilds of the Bawah Reserve in Indonesia, the vibe couldn’t be more different. Here, it’s about island life and reconnecting with each other. Wake up to an orchestra of wildlife before heading out for the day to snorkel the psychedelic lagoons, sail the six islands, and test your skill at batik art. Discover your inner-marine conservationist or perhaps just soak up the sun, in a spot where perimeters are small so all fulfillments are only steps away.

Itinerary highlights:

  • Private meeting and tour of the personal collection of Alvin Yapp’s Peranakan artefacts
  • Sample and wrap your own dumplings
  • Neighbourhood tour in Katong and Joo Chiat to sample local delicacies
  • Geyland Serai walk with media personality Suhaimi Yusoff
  • Vintage Vespa sidecar tour of the city
  • Snorkelling, diving, paddle-boarding and sailing at the Bawah Reserve
  • Hands on experience to support the marine conservation whilst diving, including coral transplantation and ocean cleans

Singapore and Indonesia /Itinerary

Eastern island hopping


Day /1


After arriving in Singapore with fast-track through the airport, transfer to Capella Singapore for a 3 night stay.

Day /2-3



Begin your insight into the kaleidoscope of culture with a tour of Alvin Yapp’s Peranakan museum: The Intan. Affectionately described as a hoarder’s haven with a twist, Yapp will walk you through his personal collection of treasure chest artefacts so that you can hand-pick your favourites to discover their unique histories. Together, you will then wrap your own dumplings, before wandering Joo Chiat and Katong to sample the best of Peranakan delicacies. Follow the day by stepping into Geylang Serai, with media-personality Suhaimi Yusoff, for a fresh take on how these cultures old and new can collide and co-exist. Finish by picking up the pace in the side-car of a vintage Vespa, with snapping hands at the ready to collect those all-important pics of the Civic District and the brightest of street-art scenes.

Bawah Island

Bawah Island

Switch the fluorescence of city skies for the organic colours of nature, as you journey to Batam and enjoy 80-minutes' worth of beautiful waterscapes via seaplane to Bawah Reserve. Wake up on one of the six islands at the Elang Private residence, for the utmost in peace and privacy. Hear the sound of over 1,780 bird species singing their unique melodies, then snorkel among the sea silence with green and hawksbill turtles and completely harmless black tip reef sharks.

Bawah Reserve

Day /7-8

Bawah Island

Bawah Island

Hop a few minutes to the main facilities on Bawah and find paddle boards, kayaks, sailing boats, and deep diving opportunities to support the team with sustainable marine conservation. Led by the Anambas Foundation, you can join in with tasks including coral transplantation, reef health monitoring and underwater clean ups. It’s not just sublime waters though, as reconnection is also found in the craft of batik art, cooking classes, and a laid-back movie evening on the private beach. The wi-fi is limited but the outside world is rarely missed, in this ultimate space for rediscovery.
