Tuesday Discovery Walk/ Tales of the (Singapore) River Bank

On this tour we will follow a living tale of people that shaped Singapore.

From Orang Laut and their sacred stone through ancient majesty of Temasek to the flocks of trading ships and multitude of Immigrants looking to build a better life in 19th century.

From Clifford Pier and Customs House - a former gateway for travellers and sailors, across Cavenagh Bridge - Singapore’s oldest bridge, we will walk along magnificent colonial buildings with great view of shophouses of Boat Quay up to former canneries, ice houses and godowns at Clarke Quay.

We will visit the River House, one of only two traditional Chinese houses remaining in Singapore.

The walk will also take us to Tan Si Chong Su Temple, which used to face the former river island of Pulau Saigon, visit Masjid Omar Kampong Melaka, the oldest mosque in Singapore to end our journey at Thong Chai Medical Institution, where free medical treatment saved the lives of thousands of coolies.
