Singapore Chinatown

star-5
4,488 Reviews

For many visitors, Singapore’s Chinatown is the sightseeing focus of the city, home to traditional shophouses, temples, and cultural heritage. Take a wander down the atmospheric streets, dropping into shophouses to see what’s for sale. Admire the rooftop dragons of Thian Hock Keng Temple, dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea, and the festively gaudy Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple, covered with colorful cows and depictions of the gods. Of course, Chinatown is also the place to go to for great food, especially along Smith Street.

Eat your way through Chinatown

Eat your way through Chinatown

We will not be taking you down "food street" or to any of the tourist places that Chinatown has a lot of. At Singabites we believe that the best way to explore an area like Chinatown is by trying local food, made by local vendors for locals to enjoy. On this tour we'll explore the real Chinatown and see how the different Chinese communities have made Singapore their home. We'll see the old opium dens and hear the stories of how life was for the workers who came here from China in the 19th century. We'll try dishes from Teochew, Cantonese, Hainanese and Hokkien hawkers. We'll get a chance to learn about hawker life and to get some tricks and tips on how to order the right thing. We'll explore a wet market and learn about the unique way that people live in this part of Singapore. Our guides have mapped out their favourite hawkers and vendors that will tell you the real story of this area.

On this tour, your ‘insider’ food explorer will take you through hidden alleys to some of Singapore’s Michelin Star ‘restaurants’. Come prepared with an appetite as you will be tasting food and snacks from 5–6 different stalls from two hawker centres. You will not only enjoy the best bites but hear fascinating stories about the food and the proud people behind them. Noodle Story serves a combination of Singapore wanton noodle with Japanese ramen topped with tender cha-su (barbeque pork) and crispy potato-wrapped prawn. Famous Crispy Curry Puff are best enjoyed hot. Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles, the first hawker stall to win a Michelin star in Singapore, has seen its popularity grown fuelling its expansion overseas. Local favourite Char Kway Teow, stir fried flat rice noodles with eggs and prawns and end the tour on a sweet note with ice kachang, a colourful mountain of syrupy shaved ice with sweetened red beans, jelly cubes, creamed corns and other treasures.

Chinatown After Dark with Trishaw Ride, Bumboat & Dinner

Chinatown After Dark with Trishaw Ride, Bumboat & Dinner

star-5

Chinatown has also come a long way since the early days when Chinese immigrants made this enclave their home. Filled with sprawling myriad of shops and eateries, bustling with colourful and exciting activities set against a backdrop of rich history and heritage, Chinatown is not to be missed especially in the evenings when everything really comes alive. Wander along the narrow lanes of the night market and test your bargaining skills against street vendors selling anything from souvenirs to leather goods. Visit a Chinese calligrapher to witness a demonstration on the art of Chinese Calligraphy. A highlight of the evening is a trishaw ride that takes you through the alleyways of Chinatown and down to Clarke Quay. There hop onto a bumboat for a cruise along the Singapore River to see Singapore lit up at night, showcasing beautifully restored shophouses, modern skyscrapers of the financial district, colonial buildings and the iconic Merlion statue

I have been staying in Singapore for around 20 years, mostly reside near town area. Have been staying vegetarian and learning Buddhism for more than 6 years. I always love to, in fact very passionate, to bring my friends to try the best vegetarian food in SG, especially thunder tea rice and asam laksa, which many local residents don’t even know! Mixture of Taoism and Buddhism has been a unique culture in SG, which I always wanted my oversea friends to experience.

In this trail, we will discover the diversity of food of the main ethnic groups in Singapore. And while any foodie tour can take you on a hawker trail, we’ll let you in on the secrets behind the best stalls. The group size is intentionally kept intimate at 6 persons as our food stops are small businesses specially handpicked to reflect artisanal techniques - not the ones typically visited by commercial tours. More than tasting, you will also get a full palate education on the herbs & spices that are used in the traditional culinary kitchens of this region. In between eating stops, we take a breath to explore the some terrific street art and walk through atmospheric alleys. This is the ultimate feast for the stomach and eyes!

Home 家

Home 家

This is all about the evolution of the Singapore home. As the population grew, there was a housing shortage. And the government had to build and relocated people from slums and squatter living conditions to new high rise apartment flats, known to Singaporeans as HDB flats. Learn about Singapore’s first homes - shophouses. What do they look like and what’s the story behind shophouses? Why the exodus from shophouse to apartment flats? When did this happen? Today, HDBs are regarded as enviable top-of-the-line homes. Visit a typical housing neighbourhood to learn how local Singaporeans go about their daily lives - from supermarkets to hawker centres, from void decks to fitness amenities. Highlight will be the home visit to a host family. This is a rather intimate meeting with a Singaporean family, where you learn about their lives, their daily chores and have a no-holds barred session where nothing is off limits.
