Students kick off Singapore study tour

Angliss International Hotel School students have travelled to Singapore to take part in an exciting cultural study tour.

This study tour is an essential part of curriculum that provides invaluable experience in international hotel service. By providing familiarisation in global tourism to our students, they become equipped with indispensable travel and cultural knowledge for their roles as future hotel and front desk managers.

As a tourism hub, Singapore is an international financial hub and exciting multicultural destination.

The current group is exploring Singapore’s lively districts. Each different precinct has its own character, with a vital mix of the historic and modern.

The students began their first day at the Malay Heritage Centre. Restored to its former glory, this museum is an essential starting point to understanding the history of Singapore’s Malay community.

They visited the Spice and Herb Garden, Bussorah Street, Arab Street, Haji Lane-Singapore’s smallest lane and original hipster neighbourhood, and the impressive Sultan Mosque.

At Singapore’s historic Chinatown complex, the students enjoyed the mix of traditional shops and markets, as well as stores and cafes. The group attended the Buddha tooth relic temple. This Chinese Buddhist temple is considered by Buddhists to be home to the Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic. Other places of interest were the Sri Mariamman Temple-Singapore’s oldest Hindu Temple and the China Town Heritage Centre.

To complete their busy day, the students experienced Little India. Visiting the Little India arcade and wet markets, they tasted traditional Indian sweets and visited Campbell Lane-home to Little India’s traditional festival bazaars.
