Description

Please note that the following tour is only available on Tuesdays.

The street was filled from end to end, with stalls and knick-knacks of every kind. Here a pair of ready-made clogs, there a steaming hot bun. Sticky cakes, exotic fruits, sweetmeats - it's food paradise always on the streets of Chinatown. Enjoy the fragrance of Chinese tea, ginseng and herbal eggs. If you're brave, we'll even help you find your way about a very slippery wet market. Check out paper cars, houses, 'handphones', and even lingerie - all part of an ancient Chinese funeral ritual. We'll also introduce to you the Yins and Yangs of Chinese traditional medicine. And finally, we might just show you where to get those ready-made clogs and that steaming hot bun!

Be guided by the experts of Singapore's rich heritage and colourful history. Highlights on this walk include Thien Hock Kheng temple, introduction to Eclectic Singapore Architecture, a Traditional Chinese Medicine store, Chinatown wet market and an ancestral worship shop.
