The Colour of Chinatown/ Tues April 18th's Weekly Walk
This walk will weave in visits to the diverse houses of worship in South Bridge Rd, one of Singapore’s “harmony” streets, also home to goldsmiths, herbalists & more. Plus wend its way through the heart of Chinatown to see old shophouses, a former Cantonese opera theatre, a traditional wet market and the famous Buddha Tooth temple.
You'll hear the sad tales of Sago Lane, the tough life of Singapore's hard working coolies, and find out about early Singapore's"underbelly" - secret societies, houses of ill repute and opium dens.
After our last stop at the City Gallery - where you will learn about our city planning, past present & future - your guide will drop you off at the ever popular Maxwell Food Centre for discoveries of the edible variety !
