What you'll do

We will meet and greet you at Telok Ayer MRT exit A where Fun Toast is located. Telok Ayer, the docking bay of the island’s earliest Chinese immigrants; the main racial group in Singapore.
In this tour, we will visit the oldest Chinese temple and a national monument in Singapore. We will share with you the Chinese beliefs, customs and tradition and what makes this temple unique.
Chinatown is known as “Niu Che Sui”, which means bullock cart water named after the daily activity here in the past where water was transported using a bullock cart from household to household. But where did the water came from?
Next, we visit Ann Siang hill; a historical place in Chinatown where the clans and trade guild houses are located.
We continue our journey to Urban Redevelopment Authority to catch an overview of Singapore and appreciate its urban planning and development.
Our tour will end with a sumptuous Chinese food tasting spree at the eatery or hawker centre in Chinatown. A food centre with more than 200 food stalls. Any fans of Chinese food will love to be here. Try out some of our mouth-watering local delicacies like the Hainanese chicken rice, Chwee Kuek, rojak, popiah, roasted pork and ducks and lots more.

I am local breed with more than 8 years of guiding experience in my childhood estate Chinatown. We are the one the earliest immigrants and have lived here for more than one hundred years.
I am spoilt food lover probably due to my mum’s superb culinary skills and my dad’s highly critical taste buds, hence, I have high expectation in what I eat. On my leisure time, I enjoy cooking.
Join me only if you want to eat like a local with gold standard and an unforgettable experience in Singapore.

Go on this tour! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great way to find out more about the culture in Singapore and learn the history of the Chinese connections. Enables you to ask a local person loads of questions about living in Singapore and the history of the city. Food tasting is really good as the hawker centres can be confusing for visitors - this way you get the food brought to you ! Definitely recommend.
