What you'll do

Discover the eastern shores of Singapore at our first Heritage Town located at Katong and Joo Chiat where over 800 decorative buildings in the area have been conserved and restored. Come immerse in the unique and colourful Peranakan (Straits Chinese) culture . Hop onto a Singapore's public bus and experience the joy of commuting like a true local! Find out more about the Peranakans who brought with them culinary secrets with rich flavors, it is no wonder some say Katong/Joo Chiat is a food paradise. Your first stop will be to enjoy the tantalizing Laksa, spoon scoop of noodles in spicy paste and fishcake topped with coriander. Simply delightful! Next we visit the beautiful interior of a traditional Peranakan shophouse. Explore the charming and laid-back streets of Joo Chiat under the moonlight, while marveling at the exceptionally ornate rows of award winning pre-war terrace and shop houses. Listen to the stories about this area and look out for the unique architectural elements of these buildings. In between the walk, there will be two other eating stops where we'll sample more yummy local delights from the Peranakan and Malay communities.
