From sugar cane plantations to shops filled with both sugary and savoury delights, Balestier has long held a sweet place in Singaporeans' minds!
In addition it played a role in Sun Yat Sun’s revolutionary movement, has an interesting Burmese connection, and is also a testament to Singapore’s rich film history in the mid 20th century. Plus it has an American connection!
Balestier today still features significant cultural landmarks, traditional trades and beautiful architectural styles. Join us as we visit some of the landmarks that make Balestier so unique. Experience the old-world charm of Balestier as we peel back both the layers of tantalising local food and rich heritage of this colourful neighbourhood.
Layered on top of the rich history and heritage, the neighbourhood is a must-visit for anyone who love a taste of our fantastic local food culture. We will visit some of the most well-loved local restaurants and hawkers serving delicious snacks and traditional food, and end with an Indian dinner which is included in your ticket price.
