Full description
Singaporeans originated from many different countries and cultures, and these varied beginnings are what gives them their unique identity today. With this tour, go beyond the city on a cultural tour of the island. Begin in the Heartlands, Ang Mo Kio, with a little-known tradition from the Kampong Era: birds singing. The tour begins when you meet your local guide at 9 AM in front of Yio Chu Kang MRT Station. Then, explore the Heartlands, Ang Mo Kio, with a little-known tradition. Brighten your morning with melodious chirps, followed by a visit to the local Hawker Center for coffee and breakfast snacks like a true local. The exploration continues with a visit to the wet market. From this humble neighborhood, head out and pay a visit to a real cultural hub.  In Chinatown, where early settlers came by boat, see how they once lived in both trying and prosperous times. Here, learn more about Singapore through beautiful wall murals by local artists, Yip Yew Chong. The tour is both educational and fun, with many photo opportunities and exciting anecdotes from your passionate guide.

    Very great tour to get to know Singapore from the original side, far away from the typical tourist area. You are on foot and by public transport, so you see a lot. By the way, Cathy also takes great pictures and really puts you in the limelight. Clear recommendation.

    Together with 2 colleagues who have never been to Singapore before, we were able to gain incredibly good impressions in just 4 hours. I've been to Singapore many times, but I was able to experience a completely different life in this diverse city. Highly recommend this tour!
