A journey through the "old" homes of the Chinese

During this 2-hours walking tour, we will walk through Chinatown and venture into places which the early Chinese immigrants of the 19th century used to stay, mingle and worked.

You will get to see the oldest Hindu and Chinese temples as well as chance to view the Buddha's relics.
Along the way, we will visit the Heritage Centre which is set-up within an old conserved shophouse too!

As I bring you through the lanes and places, we will settle down at a few famous places to savour delicious local Chinese delights such as Hainan Chicken Rice, Rice dumplings, Yong Tau Foo etc.

This is a journey of exploration through smell, taste and sights.
