Hi Friends
I am a Singaporean born and bred, having lived here for half a century. My home is in Chinatown, a historical district with many interesting sights and great foods.

My passion for culture and heritage got me started on heritage guiding several years ago and now I am living my dream as a professional tour guide, taking visitors to my favourite haunts and sharing with them the many intriguing stories of this multicultural district, including my personal experiences as a Chinatown resident.

Where you'll be

Chinatown, my hometown, is a microcosm of Singapore. It is a multicultural and multi-religious district rich in built and intangible heritage, exciting street arts and mouth-watering street foods.
Here you can find fusion Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisines served in hawker centres, an uniquely Singaporean dining experience.

Rated 4.92 out of 5 from 110 reviews.

HJ gave a great tour of Chinatown complete with stories, hidden museums and interesting explanations. The food stops were an unexpected bonus with us coming away with full bellies. He was super accommodating to our requests and food restrictions. Especially recommended with kids.

Wir haben viele Dinge gegessen, die wir sonst nie probiert hätten und auf die private Dachterrasse kommt man sonst natürlich auch nie; es war eine unterhaltsame Tour, wobei die Kultur ein bisschen kürzer kommt als die kulinarik ;)

Our tour with HJ was awesome! It was the perfect blend of a cultural and food tour. HJ is extremely knowledgeable and kind and made us feel very welcome in his hometown. We got to sample a delicious variety of foods and HJ customized based on our interests- because we had come a couple of weeks in Malaysia, he went out of his way to provide us different options that we hadn’t already tried. he also took tons of great photos for us. Another highlight was going to the rooftop of his building- not only were the views wonderful, but going to a government housing block is not something we could have done on our own. HJ also followed up afterwards with some additional tips on other things we could do in the city to make the most of our time. Overall, this was a fantastic tour and we came away very full, happy, and satisfied! Thank you, HJ!

Hj is extremely knowledgeable about Singaporean culture. The tour gave me so much insight on what makes up this beautiful country. We had the opportunity to try many unique dishes that I never would’ve found on my own. Throughout the tour Hj narrates what you are seeing around you and knows many interesting facts. He was also kind enough to show us an incredible rooftop garden with panoramic views of the city. We left the tour with full bellies and smiles on our faces! Thanks Hj for the awesome experience, your photography skills and sharing all of the recommendations on things we can do during our stay here and Singapore!

HJ gave a great tour with good food and a ton of history. He knew a ton about the city and how it's changed over the years. He was also eager to take photos for me and point out interesting things would have passed by. Definitely an afternoon well spent!

Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. My daughter and I felt we really learned about the culture and history of Singapore as well as the food in Chinatown. Thank you Hj!
