Pinch of Singapore - Pay-as-you-wish Walk Tour
Jan has spent time living in Thailand and Japan and is now back in Singapore with fresh eyes (and ears) for anything pertaining to Singapore's history, culture and the arts. As someone who’s travelled extensively, his cultural sensibilities extend beyond the shores of this little red dot. He enjoys answering questions and sharing his honest perspectives of Singapore. A fervent believer of the need to minimise our footprint during our short stay on this lovely planet, Jan is never found without his reusable bowls, cups and utensils that he faithfully carts around. Join him on a tour and see how he tries to keep green when showing local and foreign visitors around!
Multi-ethnicity, multiculturalism, multiracial and interracial.
Singapore celebrates it all.
This offbeat walking tour in turn pays tribute to this exceptionally unnatural occurrence; from hearing the good, not so good; to tasting ethnic bites & smelling the roses of flowers knotted into garlands. We cover,
- Not 1, not 2, but all 3 ethnic quarters
- Don't just hear, or listen, but bite into the local(est) snacks
- Ask away any question about anything of this melting pot
- Besides walking, we hop onto public transport too!**
Background Story (to date):
With colossal buildings, hurried development, and incredible economic growth that thrives as much as its greenery, this bustling cosmopolitan Singapore overflows with opportunities, businesses, and trade. But what's pulsating within the city is beyond what most eyes see. Made up of Chinese, Malay, Indian, and various other ethnicities, cultural heritage is what makes Singapore, Singapore — a gathering of different cultures coexisting in one agreeable space.
*Suggested tip amount: S$30 ~ $50 per person (most of us are not crazy rich Asians, and life here is Expensive, I really do appreciate your love)
**Participants to standby a mask (for riding of public transport) and their own credit/debit card. YES! Your own card allows you to travel with ease (albeit with an additional S$0.50 fee) on this island's public transport system.
