The central Chinatown district in Singapore, with its 220-plus hawker stalls, is a pulsing place to start this walking tour of wonderful taste. With so much noise, activity, and way too much food to choose from, it is lucky you have your amazing local guide to show you the most flavorsome feeds from the hundreds of stalls. As you enjoy a lovely cold sugarcane juice, your guide will fill you in on the interesting history of Chinatown, and the stories of how the hawkers became the Singaporean favorite they are today.
From the bustle of the hawkers, you will continue on foot, cutting a path through the wet market, where you will see first hand the sources of the scrumptious food you have just tried. As you continue through the streets of Chinatown, your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about Singapore’s history, and how it became the multicultural hub you see around you. You will stop in at a number of cultural sites along your walk, before arriving at the Urban Redevelopment Authority, where you will get a great insight into how Singapore rose from a fishing village to this amazingly modern city.
Finally, after all this eating, learning and walking, it is time to finish the tour with a relaxing local tea or coffee, and a tasty roti prata for a touch more Singaporean feel. With the chance to rest, relax and chat a little more with your guide, it is the perfect way to round off your walking tour of Singapore’s Chinatown.
