What you can expect

During this private walking tour, I will lead you through one of the most magnificent districts of Singapore: Chinatown! You'll venture into places where the early Chinese immigrants of the 19th century used to work, chill and mingle.

There are lots of historical stories to be shared, authentic temples to be visited and buzzing local markets to admire.

You will get to see the oldest Hindu and Chinese temples as well as have the chance to view the Buddha's relics.

Along the way, we will visit the Heritage Center which is set up within an old conserved shophouse too!

As I take you through highlights and hidden gems, we will settle down at a few famous places to savour delicious local Chinese delights such as Hainan Chicken Rice or yummy rice dumplings!

This is a journey of exploration through smell, taste and sights. Are you ready to venture out with me and let me tell you the best stories? If you'd like to adjust something to the itinerary, please feel free to ask. I'm more than happy to customize the tour to your taste!

Looking forward to meeting you soon in Singapore!

I grew up and received my education in Singapore. Believe me when I say that Singapore is a safe and peaceful country to live in. I love the vibrancy of the city as well as the peacefulness brought on by the lush greenery surrounding me.

I am very much inspired by shows such as The Wedding Planner, Amazing Wedding Cakes etc, as it is always about making someone's dream come true. That's what I tell myself every time when I plan a tour. I want to make it your tour!

Generally described as a jovial, easy-going and down to earth person, I look forward to bring you around this City Within A Garden I dearly call home.

Why not allow me to bring you around to start off your adventure? Tell me what you want to see and how you would like your tour to feel and I will assist you to maximize your time and budget. The tours listed on my profile would be a general guideline on what you could do when you reach Singapore.

Let me indulge you in the various cultures found within this multi-racial country, as well as the excitement from the shopping, night life and of course, all the delicious foods from different races, namely the Chinese, Malays and Indians.

I will try my very best to make it a wholesome experience for you and your loved ones."
