Description

Singapore, a country city of diverse nationality culture and religion, experience a cultural exploration as we take you in different historical and cultural landmarks that makes up the Singapore history. Enjoy a day of varied activities to experience the culture and history of Singapore. Start with a drive around Singapore’s colonial district followed by an in depth cultural discovery. Let our master guide bring you to a journey of heritage's past exploring areas like religion, cultural behaviors and tradition of each culture.

Each of the streets in Chinatown are built at right angles. For the sake of uniformity, Raffles specified that the shop houses and houses be built in brick and tiled and each house should have a verandah or covered passage five feet wide to provide an open space where the dwellers in the crowded houses could have fresh air and also where food hawkers could operate.

The charm of Little India lies in the fact that many of the olden-day trades can still be found by its roadsides and alleyways. Take a walk and you will find a treasure trove of decorative items, foodstuff, traditional Indian spices and apparel. Explore Tekka Market, a traditional food centre and wet market. Early morning visits are preferred as you will get the opportunity to be amongst the hustle and bustle as you see the locals out to purchase the fresh food produce.

Arab Street, or Kampong Glam is a colourful and lively street for food, clothing, spices, basketry items and Sonkoks - Malay word for Hats. Visit the magnificent golden dome of the Sultan Mosque, which sits on a ringed structure made entirely of the bottoms of glass bottles. Once the historic seat of Malay royalty in Singapore, it is a golden ethnic enclave worth exploring for its depth in architecture, exotic ornaments and palatable pleasures. Afterwards, we will be heading off to Bussorah Street which is one of the main tourist draw in Kampong Glam. Bussorah Street is a short alley lined with two-storey shophouses. Shop for curios like vintage clocks and toys, or simply wander around to get a taste of days gone by.

Visit the Peranakan Museum of Singapore and explore the culture of Peranakan communities in Southeast Asia. Installed in the former Tao Nan Chinese School built in 1912, this intimate museum possesses one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of Peranakan objects. Galleries on three floors illustrate the cultural traditions and the distinctive visual arts of the Peranakans.
