Immerse yourself in the mix of old and new in Singapore’s busy and colorful Chinatown. Dating back to the first Chinese settlements in Singapore in the early 1820s, the bustling district offers its visitors an interesting walk through the area. While admiring the conserved shophouses, listen to stories of the Opium Dens, Coolie Houses, Brothels and Death Houses that peppered the streets of Chinatown in the past. Discover the unique multiculturalism of Chinatown and find out why you can find a Taoist temple, a Hindu temple, two mosques, a Buddhist temple and a Methodist church all within walking distance of each other. You will view the stunning interior of Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, a Tang Dynasty style Buddhist temple that houses a Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic in a giant stupa made from 320kg of gold. Visit the oldest Hindu Temple, Sri Mariamman Temple, and the oldest Chinese Taoist Temple, Thian Hock Keng Temple. If you love shopping for exotic things, Chinatown would be your mecca! Here, you can buy almost anything and surprise friends and family back home with fun souvenirs. The trip is arranged in small groups, so you will be able to chat with your professional guide and learn about the district’s fascinating history.
