A great day out on Ducky & Hippo.

Got two complimentary rides for the award wining DUCKtour ride and HiPPO Christmas Light-up tour for my family. We are all very excited as it’s our first time experiencing this kind of rides, especially little Kaley. Lucky for us, the sky clears up just in time for our rides as it’s the year end raining season in Singapore.

*There is a giveaway contest by DUCK & HiPPO this year so read on for how to take part in few simple steps! 😉

Wacky Ducky

To put it simply, DUCKtour is a ride where you get to sit in an amphibious vehicle and get to travel on land to sea and back to land in one ride, sounds fun, especially for children!

5DSL6405– it’s actually quite a huge vehicle!

Our ride is a 60 minutes and we have a guide onboard that get us ready and explains the history of the landmarks in Singapore as we tour around. And it’s surprisingly interesting to me.

5DSL6264– before i know it, we are already on the sea!

The ride on the sea is quite fun for Kaley and interesting for me as I get to see the famous landmarks of Singapore at different angle, and because it’s already in the evening when we set off, the tint of golden light in the sky makes it warm and nice!
