Join this personalized walking tour by a local guide, kept to a small group size of no more than 6 people.
As the sun sets, put on your walking shoes and join us in exploring Chinatown, the heart of the Chinese ethnic community of the yesteryears and discover how it had transformed over the centuries while still retaining its old world charm.
Experience our national food culture by sinking your teeth into a detectable 3-course hawker fare, at where else but in our favorite Chinatown food centre. You can't get any more local than this!
Meet your friendly, professional guide at the designated MRT (subway) station and let the fun begin! First, we make our way to Singapore’s oldest Chinese temple, painstakingly restored to its former glory through the years. Find out about the significance of its location and hear the folklore of the many deities residing in there.
Going uphill is what we do next, as we reach the top of the short hill, you will be greeted by a myriad of fascinating watering holes, operating out of what used to be humble clubhouses of Chinese clans, associations and societies. Witness the brilliant transformations of the conserved shophouses into a cool chill-out spot, the perfect venue for great night out.
Our Chinatown discovery brings us into a Chinese Buddhist temple to behold the sacred Buddha tooth relic, seated in a stupa constructed entirely out of solid gold! Simply opulent.
We arrive at a popular Chinatown food centre and it's time to tame the hunger in you. Tuck in to a delightful 3-course Singapore-style dinner of your choice. Don't forget to ask your guide about the origins of your selected cuisine.
After dinner, we continue to meander through the charming nostalgic streets of Chinatown, see how the buildings have gentrified through the years. Learn about the endearing stories behind some of these exquisite shophouses. Steal a peek into an Indian temple dedicated to Ganesha, the elephant deity, as you allow the soothing evening pooja or prayers drift to your ears from within.
Our final stop is an award-winning architectural marvel where we will ascend to its apex (@ 536ft) to catch a breathtaking bird's eye view of our picturesque Lion City at dusk. As you stroll along and indulge in the amazing views, your guide will point out the prominent landmarks and amuse you with little-known facts and stories about some of these places.
As the tour concludes, your guide will show the way to the nearest MRT (subway) station.
