A visit to Singapore would not be complete without experiencing High Tea or sampling a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel.
Opened in 1887 in an old bungalow known as the Beach House, the Raffles Hotel was named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore.
Over the years it has evolved into one of the worlds most beloved luxury hotels and played host to a swag of celebrities, writers, and royalty. So, Intrepid’s Chotie Moloney decided it was just the place for a travel treat…

Ask travellers what we love most about exploring new places and the majority of us will tell you it’s meeting local people.
We are curious to know more about their lives, we want to share a laugh or two and enjoy authentic experiences. This isn’t easy to do when your stuck in touristy hotels, so the best way to make this happen is to spend the night with someone.
Do you have an interesting story to tell about a friendship that started on an Intrepid adventure? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

It’s probably all that and more, so to mentally prepare you for the experience here are twelve of ‘The Feels’ you can expect to be faced with on an Urban Adventures Beer Tour…
Who better to ask about travelling to Iran than a local?
Reza Poorhoseini has been leading Intrepid trips in Iran since they first started in 2006. He’s passionate about his homeland and has a wealth of information about the region, so we asked him what should people expect to see and discover in his country?
We are thrilled that Intrepid’s Dheeraj ‘Monty’ Bhatt is once again a finalist in the prestigious Wanderlust World Guide Awards.
To be recognised as one of the best in his business amongst such a talented team of guides is an achievement in itself, but to receive such high praise several times during his 8 years with Intrepid is testament to Monty’s dedication and passion for adventure travel.
