Day 1-3

Singapore, Chinatown temples and food, Light shows, Botanical gardens, Singapore zoo, History museum, Marina bay sands hotel

We arrive in Singapore, and check into a hotel in Geylang area. We get to the observation deck on top of the famous Marina bay sands hotel to see the skyscrapers and the sunset in the sea. Watch two light shows - one near the hotel, and the other in the futuristic Gardens by the bay. This is just the first day of our group trip to Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines!

In the morning we head to Chinatown, probably the most vibrant part of Singapore. We will visit the Buddhist Temple of the Tooth of the Buddha, the main Hindu temple of the country, and then indulge in gastronomic pleasures at the most famous food court. Here they cook the most popular dishes of Singapore! 

Full and happy, we head to the Botanical Gardens, which is considered one of the best in the world. Particularly impressive is the collection of orchids, which consists of 1200 species and 2 thousand hybrids! Next, one of the best zoo in the world. Its inhabitants feel at ease here. Watch penguins swimming through glass in a special air-conditioned room, look at the amazingly elegant white tigers, funny Madagascar lemurs, and big-nosed monkeys. 

Full of impressions, we go to the Singapore History Museum to learn the secret of this country's success. How did a tiny state without resources manage to become one of the richest in the world in just a few decades?

Day 4-6

Hong Kong, Chungking Mansions, Tai O fishing village, Big Buddha, Victoria Peak, Ngong Ping 360 cable car

We arrive in Hong Kong and check into the famous Chungking Mansions. In the evening we go for a walk along the Victoria Harbor to watch the ships and the neon lights that flood the forest of skyscrapers on Hong Kong island. This is the financial heart of the world - the business areas of Hong Kong. Do not forget to look below - we are walking along the Avenue of Stars of Hong Kong cinema! How many movie stars besides Jackie Chan and John Woo do you know? We watch the light show, and enjoy dinner at the very center of nightlife - on Temple Street. 

In the morning, we take a ferry to Lantau Island and visit the fishing village of Tai O. Here one cannot see even a single tall building, only impassable wild jungles and deserted beaches surround us. In the village many people still live in small houses on the water and move around by motorboats. Yes, this is also Hong Kong! We enjoy fresh seafood, try snails in soy sauce and the unusual hibiscus flowers drink. We take a bus to the other side of the island and face the huge bronze Buddha, the symbol of Hong Kong. 268 steps - and we stand at the feet of a 34 meters tall statue. We take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car down. 

In the evening, we visit the famous dim sum restaurant, with traditional steam cuisine of southern China. The restaurant has a prestigious international quality mark - a Michelin star and is known as the most affordable restaurant with a Michelin star in the world! 

The next day we take a ferry to Hong Kong Island to explore the jungle of glass and concrete, and then take a cable car to Victoria Peak. Prepare cameras - the views are amazing. Where else can you take a selfie with thousands of skyscrapers under your feet? In the evening we fly to Manila - the capital of the Philippines and check into a hotel in Ermita district.

Day 7-8

Capital Manila, Old city Intramuros, Rizal park, Cathedral of St. Augustine, Taal volcano

In the morning we go to the old town of Intramuros and from the 21st century move to 16th. Stone streets between elegant Spanish-style houses, carts with horses on the pavement, here and there we stumble upon officially forbidden, but frequent cock-fighting with stakes. We walk to the grandiose Cathedral of St. Augustine of the 16th century - the favorite place of Filipino lovers. Almost certainly we will see a wedding here - with rose petals, limousines, sounds of organ and fabulous outfits. 

Next, we enjoy Rizal Park. Here we will not only see locals enjoing themselves, but also learn about the national hero of the country - Lapu-Lapu, whose huge monument stands in the park. He is known as the 16th centure ruler of Mactan island who resisted Spanish colonialists, and killed the famous Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. 

We may also make a trip to Taal volcano (about 2 hours by bus). This unique place is the second most active volcano of the Philippines, located in the middle of a huge lake. First, on boats, and then on horseback, we will reach the crater and find another lake there.
