American Footprints in Singapore Tour

As part of our 100 year anniversary celebrations, we take a look at the history and influence of the US - its policies, people & practices - on Singapore, and the development of the strong relationship between the two countries over the last 183 years. 

Focusing on four topics - history, education, the military and business, we will go on a voyage of discovery (by bus) around our small island to explore these areas in the company of our experienced guides, Jane & Bruce of Jane's SG Tours.

Starting with the story of the first American Consul, Joseph Balestier, we will briefly explore the area where his sugar cane plantation was located, and which bears his name to this day.

From there we will travel to Stamford American International School's campus to learn about the way in which the US education system is integrated to that in Singapore, both in terms of secondary schooling but also access to US colleges.

Our third stop will be to the Paya Lebar Air Force Museum where we will learn about the strong partnership between our two countries which sees, for example, US Navy ships using facilities here, and RSAF pilots training in the US.

The final part of our tour will see us at the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) to talk about the history, current extent and future plans for US businesses in Singapore. 

At each of our stops, we will have specialist speakers talking about their own field of expertise, and our guides will be giving us more information as we travel around.
