All aboard for Singapore's first afternoon tea experience on a ferry. Hosted by Sindo Ferry, Kueh and Kusu is a maritime adventure on board a garden-themed ferry where you'll cruise along the Marina South coastline and Southern Islands while relaxing with a cup of tea.

This unique journey promises luxury and comfort in the form of fairy lights, plush pillows and floral decor, as well as delectable treats like kueh dadar, blueberry cheese tarts and other sweet snacks served alongside a steaming pot of Earl Grey Tea. For added flair, the dainty bites are served in an avant garde three-tier "bird cage".

Once you've finished your tea, you'll disembark on Kusu Island, where you'll have around an hour to explore this tranquil place, home to hundreds of wild tortoises at the Tortoise Sanctuary, as well as shrines and temples for worshippers to pay their respects, before the ferry returns to Harbourfront Centre.

Ferry departs from Harbourfront Centre on weekends at 2 pm
