  • Singapore Chinatown Night Tour: Dinner, Trishaw & Boat Ride

    1. Singapore Chinatown Night Tour: Dinner, Trishaw & Boat Ride

    Chinatown has also come a long way since the early days when Chinese immigrants made this enclave their home. Filled with a sprawling myriad of shops and eateries, bustling with colourful and exciting activities set against a backdrop of rich history and heritage, Chinatown is not to be missed especially in the evening when everything really comes alive. At a Chinese Medical Hall, learn how Traditional Chinese Medicine helps to regulate your Yin and Yang. From ancient days till modern times, the Chinese have continue with herbs and practices like acupuncture, moxibustion, tai chi and tui na to stay healthy. After dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, wander along the narrow lanes of the Night Market and test your bargaining skills against street vendors selling anything from souvenirs to leather goods.  The highlight of the evening is a trishaw ride that takes you through the alleyway...

    Overall a very good trip. However the hotel restaurant wasn’t what we expected. It was a Chinatown experience, and that wasn’t it.

The tour was the highlight of our stay in Singapore. Our guide Alfie did a great job, telling us everything about the city and sharing fun facts. We not only saw the sights, but also houses and places we probably would gave missed otherwise. He also encouraged the communication within the group. The ride itself was relaxed and we also made a little break to try local food and drinks.

Everything is perfectly organized, from collection to return. Dinner in Chinatown ok tour was a bit short but sufficient. The subsequent rickshaw tour and the river trip on the Singapore River were very beautiful and impressive.
