If you fancy a little island-hopping with your afternoon tea, you’re in for a treat. Sindo Ferry, the largest ferry operator in Singapore, is now offering an Afternoon Tea Experience (S$60) onboard a ferry en route to Kusu Island.
Afternoon tea experience to Kusu Island
Apart from Sentosa and Pulau Ubin, Singapore also has islands like St John’s Island and Kusu Island that Singaporeans can explore.
Called Kueh & Kusu, this activity will not only take you on a trip to Kusu Island, but also make it slightly more enticing.
That’s because passengers will be served a 3-tier afternoon tea set while the ferry travels along Singapore’s Marina Coastline.
Here’s what you can expect:
3-tier afternoon tea set
Passengers will be served an afternoon tea set comprising of a fresh selection of halal-certified sandwiches, mini pastries and delicate kueh-kueh and cakes. Free flow hot tea will also be served.
The boat’s seating has also been reconfigured into to a diner-like setting, with floral centrepieces on every table to give off a garden-themed vibe.
Picturesque trip along the Marina Coastline and Sentosa
The one hour cruise will take you along the Marina South Coast where you can see some of Singapore’s iconic landmarks with pre-recorded commentary, before the ferry drops you off at Kusu Island.
The boat’s upper deck is where you’ll find the best views as well as an opportunity to enjoy the crisp sea breeze.
Explore Kusu Island
Upon reaching Kusu Island, passengers can depart and explore the south of mainland Singapore which is home to interesting folkfore and myths, not to mention a mosque and a temple.
Kusu literally means tortoise in Chinese, which explains the numerous tortoise sculptures on the island.
At the end of the hour, the ferry will depart back to mainland Singapore and arrive at Harbourfront Centre.
