Itinerary

Your Singapore food fest will begin at the Chinatown complex, the largest hawker centre in Singapore, with over 220 stalls. With all those options, you may feel a little overwhelmed, but you’ll have a knowledgeable local by your side to show you the ropes.

Your guide will introduce you to the hawker centre and help you pick out some of the most authentic, tasty Singaporean treats. Savor the famous chicken rice along with delicious poh piah (fresh spring roll). Then try some mouth-watering local Chinese delights such as chwee kueh (water rice cake) with freshly crushed, ice cold sugar cane juice.

While you chow down on your food, your local guide will be sharing with you some Singapore history, information about the city’s rich culture, and some local know-how on how this food is prepared. You’ll also learn how hawker centres came to be, and why this tradition is so close to the Singaporeans’ hearts. This tour is interactive – we encourage you to ask your local guide plenty of questions about all that you can see and taste.

After our first dose of deliciousness, we’ll take a stroll through the wet market to explore local food sources. Check out some interesting livestock and fresh ingredients used in our local food. Next, we hit the streets of Chinatown to we continue our Singapore tour. Learn about the history of the early migrants in this area, and how they came to settle and build their lives here. You’ll experience how people from all kinds of places live in harmony in Chinatown as we visit some religious sites dotted along the same street. We take a respite from the outdoor heat with a visit to the air conditioned Urban Redevelopement Authority (URA) gallery to understand how the city planners built Singapore from a humble fishing village to a great cosmopolitan city!

After all that exploration, we’ll finish up our Singapore tour with a freshly brewed teh or kopi tarik (pull tea / coffee) and a taste of Singaporean fusion with a tasty roti prata to complete our day tour. While you eat, your tour guide will fill you in on a few final bits of local knowledge, give you an opportunity to ask them any more burning questions you may have, and some tips and tricks for the rest of your time in the magical city of Singapore.
