Singapore

Food, people, ❤️

Embark on a whirlwind tour through central Singapore, where modernity and tradition seamlessly coexist. From the iconic skyline of Marina Bay to the vibrant markets of Chinatown and the cultural tapestry of Little India, our curated walking journey captures the essence of this dynamic city. Explore historic enclaves, savour diverse flavours, and immerse yourself in the rich heritage that defines Singapore’s unique neighbourhoods. There’s so much to see, and all you have to do is to put on a pair of good walking shoes and some sunscreen because it would be quite a hike!

Something Every Moment

Choose from any of the experiences below, or all if you want! Add on other areas as long as they are reachable by foot in the same estates.
Each experience lasts up to 3 hours, and a mixture may take less depending on the walk in between.

Little India

We begin our cultural exploration at the heart of Little India, a bustling district teeming with an explosion of colours, aromatic spices, and intricate architecture. We will stroll through its vibrant streets, where the scent of incense fills the air, and savour delectable Indian cuisine – each moment promises to be a sensory feast for our eyes, ears, and taste buds.

Chinatown

Discover the rich tapestry of Chinese culture in the afternoon. Together, we’ll traverse through bustling Chinatown and visit the iconic Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, an architectural marvel adorned with intricate designs and housing a sacred relic of Lord Buddha. We’ll also explore the vibrant street markets, where the aromas of delectable Chinese cuisine waft through the air and welcome us to an evening feast.

Kampong Glam

We will delve deep into the vibrant Malay culture in the heart of Kampong Glam. From awe-inspiring mosques adorned with intricate designs to colourful traditional markets teeming with aromatic spices and handicrafts, we’ll witness first-hand the beauty and diversity of the Malay culture. We’ll learn their fascinating stories, and savour authentic Malay cuisine that tantalizes the taste buds.

A Blend of Everything

Explore the vibrant district between Bras Basah and Clarke Quay in Singapore, where colonial charm meets modern energy. Discover iconic landmarks like the National Museum and stroll along the lively Singapore River, capturing the essence of the city’s urban allure. This compact experience offers a snapshot of history, contemporary developments, and cultural richness in the heart of Singapore.

Meet your Host

Coming from another multicultural country, Singapore still doesn't cease to amaze me in the way it truly embraces its status as a melting pot of culture. I have lived here for 10 years and still I discover new things about another ethnic every day, and that's what makes living in Singapore exciting! Hopefully I am able to share the same excitement with you.

We had an amazing visit to Singapore with Angie. Angie was so kind, friendly, and knowledgeable about all the different sites and places around Singapore. She also took us to many locations popular with local people. We really enjoyed getting to try the local cuisine and experience all the different neighborhoods and temples. We would absolutely love to visit again and highly recommend Angie to any person considering visiting Singapore.
