Taste the flavours and experience the culture of Chinatown on this walking tour through Singapore’s bustling historic neighbourhood.
We pride ourselves in creating personalised travel experiences that suit all your preferences and needs.
With this tour you can:
Experience the taste of Chinatown on a stroll through Chinatown district, a bustling and historic enclave in the heart of glittering Singapore. Meet with your guide at Pagoda Street, adjacent to Bee Cheng Hiang, your first stop. Home to the famous slow cooked bakkwa, a jerky-like meat, this local delicacy is slow cooked with the same secrete recipe used for the past 80 years! Have a taste before setting off on a stroll past buildings that used to house opium dens in Singapore's seedy underbelly.
Stop at Da Sheng for some pastries before heading onward toward a local tea shop that's over a century old! Here, learn from an expert about the different varieties of Chinese tea - and how each has a special medicinal element. Afterwards, stroll to the Yong Gallery, a wood carving and painting shop owned by master calligrapher Mr. Yong. Meet the man behind the masterpieces and chat with the living legend about his passion for Chinese artwork. Finally, take a stroll along Food Street and learn about the area’s charming culinary history. Along the way, try some satay or kueh pie tee before wrapping up your tour in Singapore's largest hawker centers. This Singaporean culinary icon is sometimes described as an alternative food court, but nowadays plays an important role in the lives of local foodies. Reserve your table with a chope - a cheap trinket from your pocket like a tissue pack - and dig into your last dish of the tour: Singapore's famous chicken and rice!
