Discover Singapore

In December 2019, we are exploring the amazing city of
Singapore, of the Crazy Rich Asians film fame, which will include an adventure to Bintan Island to see the Annular Solar Eclipse on December 26, 2019!

Singapore eclipse Map

Discover the heritage of Singapore at the National Museum and as you explore the city on our bumboats in the harbor!

Enjoy an afternoon at the Singapore Science Center and see
the famous Gardens by the Bay, where the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest Dome offer two of the finest botanical greenhouse experiences in the world.

Ferry a short distance to Bintan Island, Indonesia, where we will see the Annular Solar Eclipse at an extraordinary archaeological site with 500 life-sized statues!

Leading the expedition will be Betchart's top Asia naturalist, Dr. Chris Carpenter, and popular Betchart Eclipse leader, naturalist Bob Nansen. Joining them will be an astronomical leader from The Planetary Society.

You can explore Singapore and see the Eclipse, and also enjoy two of the finest experiences in Asia: Angkor Wat (on a pre-trip) and sailing on the tall ship, Star Clipper (on a post-trip)!

The Angkor Wat pre-trip in Cambodia will allow you to see this renowned archaeological site which the world first saw overgrown with jungle, in the National Geographic magazine a few decades ago.

The Star Clipper post-trip will be a New Year's voyage, from Singapore to Phuket, on one of the finest tall ships in the world. It is a fully rigged vessel, 360-feet long with 4 masts, and is an unbeatable way to celebrate New Year's!

We hope you will join us to explore Singapore & see the 2019 Annular Eclipse!
