Optional Tours

The following optional tours are being organised for conference delegates to participate during and after the conference. Reservations for these optional tours should be made when you register online for the conference. Please register early as there are limited seats available for each optional tour. Nearer the conference date, the organiser will provide you with more details about the optional tour(s) you have registered for.

(Dates : 7 December 2011 afternoon & 10 December 2011 morning)

  • Delegates can choose to join the optional campus tour either on 7 December 2011 afternoon or 10 December 2011 morning.
  • The optional campus tour is complimentary for all conference delegates.
  • Reservation is based on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A minimum group size is required for each session in order for the tour to proceed.

Delegates will have an opportunity to enjoy a guided bus tour of three campuses, namely Kent Ridge Campus, University Town and Bukit Timah Campus.

Kent Ridge Campus: Set amidst the greenery of Kent Ridge Park area, the 150 hectare Kent Ridge Campus is the largest of the NUS campuses and started its full operation in mid 1980s after the site was developed for 16 years.

University Town: Located across the Kent Ridge Campus is the NUS University Town (UTown), the first of its kind in Singapore’s higher learning landscape. It will open its doors in August 2011, where some 2,400 undergraduate students, 1,700 graduate students and 1,000 researchers will work, live, and learn in close proximity. UTown's design integrates green concepts in master planning and building, allowing living and learning to be intimately entwined. Spaces in UTown are designed to extend learning beyond the classrooms. For instance, discussions from the seminar rooms will spill over into the side cafes and other informal learning spaces.

Bukit Timah Campus: Six buildings in the campus of the Former Raffles College, now known as the NUS Bukit Timah Campus, home to the Law Faculty, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and five Research Institutes, have been preserved as National Monuments by the National Heritage Board in 2009.

One of the wonderful things that one must try in Singapore is to taste the local food! So, the organiser has planned an informal dinner outing for delegates to try out a varied choice of local food, such as satay, barbequed chicken wings, hokkien mee, ice-kacang and many others. Delegates will be brought to a hawker centre or food centre to experience the food culture in Singapore.
