Stroll in the footsteps of Singapore’s pioneers

For the ultimate insight into one of the world’s most vibrant ethnic enclaves, our Singapore team has designed a walking tour in Chinatown.

Originally home to the first Chinese settlers, this area has transformed into the country’s largest heritage district, with abundant and diverse architecture. This is all showcased on a five-hour excursion that reveals a blend of old and new, including historic temples and traditional medicinal halls alongside fashionable bars. The city state’s Chinatown is the only one in the world to have a Buddhist temple, Islamic mosque and a Hindu shrine on a single street.

Excursion highlights include Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest Hindu shrine on the island and Masjid Jamae, a place of worship for the Tamil Muslim population. Chinatown’s other star attraction is food and Smith Street offers a smorgasbord of delicious hawker food.
