Duck tour.

While my parents were in Singapore, we decided to take a tour of Singapore by getting on board a remodeled WWII amphibious Vietnamese war craft! Even Linna came along for the Duck Tour. I heard that the views from the water were pretty spectacular, and since we didn't have to walk on this tour, all four of us jumped at this opportunity!

The tour boat/bus is an actual war craft that can drive on the road, but it also floats and drives on water (like a boat). We drove for about 5-10 minutes on land (traffic was bad due to the F1 road closures), and then splashed into the water! We got some great views of the Singapore Flyer, Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino, and the "real" Merlion. They gave each one of us a set of headphones to listen to music, as well as some pretty interesting facts about Singapore. I was kind of hoping for an actual entertaining tour guide, standing in front of the crowd, while telling us about the sights we were seeing. Nonetheless, the facts about Singapore were very interesting!

Linna got a little restless (she was tired and HOT) during the tour, which made it a little difficult for me to enjoy and relax during the tour. I ended up taking off her dress, and just let her hang out in her diaper cover. By the end of the tour, she was out cold! She had fun looking at all the buildings from the water, and even wanted to jump into the water for a little swim (sorry Linna)! Other passengers on the boat were taking photos of Linna, which I find so funny:)

Nap time after the Duck Tour.

It was pretty neat to be on board a piece of history, while experiencing an hour-long tour of Singapore. If you do take a Duck Tour, try to sit on the right side of the boat. That's where we sat, and we had the best views right off the bat. Strollers are not allowed on the tour bus/boat, but they watch them for you and keep them safe!

Besides the heat, the four of us had a great time on our Duck Tour of Singapore!
