Hello MICE & Company happenings! Welcome to our Vintage Convoy & Walking Tour
We’re all kitted up for MICE.
We’ll arrange for a vintage convoy, where we add on vintage and fancy vehicles to the Sidecar fleet – at key stops, the group gets to switch seats so everyone gets a sidecar ride.
Get an assortment of Sidecars, Vintage Beetles and Vintage Kombi Vans – Roman Holiday meets Scooby Doo as guests get to swap between 2 or 3 different types of awesome vintage vehicles during each stop!
The vintage group may consist of vintage sidecars and vintage vehicles – specs may vary according to the group size and requirements, but will consist of an awesome set of vintage and collectors vehicles, riding together with the Sidecar fleet – a spectacle that guests often feed back as “The highlight of the trip”.
This ride arrangement has been popular with MICE groups of between 10-30 in size per tour. We can rotate through approximately 120 pax over half a day.
On the 2 and 3 hour options, immersively experience the sights in an open top sidecar, get to sample some local tastes, meet and greet the locals as we bring you inside old shophouses to hear their stories, and find out what makes this little red dot so special.
This ride also includes some elements of a walking tour, so you get to bridge interesting areas by vehicle and enjoy exploring in detail some select parts by foot.
Itinerary: Art & Artisans of Kampung Glam
Kampong Glam, formerly the seat of Malay royalty, is best known for its two major landmarks: Sultan Mosque, Singapore’s oldest & largest mosque, and the Istana Kampung Gelam, the former Sultan’s palace (Today known as the Malay Heritage Centre).
A Malay / Muslim community characterised by many traditional businesses: textile wholesalers, spice traders and perfumers, Muslim food caterers, retailers of gemstones and rattan handicraft, yet today trades in the area have diversified and changed over the years; drawing an increasingly young and diverse group of visitors to this district, which has revived the connection between this district and the wider Singaporean and international environment.
Ride with us as we seek insta-worthy photo opportunities throughout the Royal Malay district of Kampong Glam. Along the way, uncovering the challenges of conservation while allowing for modernization; as both the old and the new co-exist together.
Highlights Take a spin by Sidecar. Malay Enclave. Urban renewal in a conservation district. Trendy cafes and “blogshops”. Singapore’s narrowest lane. Largest Mosque in Singapore. Fascinating artistic doodles on walls & public spaces.
