Tuesday Small-Group Discovery Walk: The Colours of Chinatown
Price: S$75 / ticket

This walk weaves in visits to the diverse houses of worship on South Bridge Road, one of Singapore’s “harmony” streets, and also home to goldsmiths, herbalists and more. We wind our way through the heart of Chinatown to see old shophouses, a former Cantonese opera theatre, a traditional wet market, and the famous Buddha Tooth temple.

Hear the sad tales of Sago Lane and the tough life of Singapore's hard-working coolies. Learn about early Singapore's "underbelly"—its secret societies, houses of ill repute, and opium dens.

After our last stop at the City Gallery—where you see a world-famous diorama of Singapore and learn about our city planning past, present, and future— your guide will drop you off at the ever-popular Maxwell Food Centre for discoveries of the edible variety!  message to all registered. 

Please note confirmation of this tour includes the exact meeting place and will be sent by email to all those registered about 24 hours in advance.
