This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chinatown, Crot Trengganu, Singapore 048942 Singapore

The experience starts off with an exploration of Chinatown where you will get to soak in the sights of the Chinatown neighbourhood. Stories will be shared of it's history capturing the struggles of early Chinese immigrants, their trials and tribulations of making ends meet in a rough neighbourhood filled with vices like opium, gambling, prostitution, and death. These buildings still stand today. Old images will be shown where you will see the quick transformation of Singapore's development from the past to the present day.
We will also be visiting a hawker centre and get to sample locally popular Singapore Chinese street food cuisines, and at the same time experience the local way of life that has been around for the past decades.

Stop At: Little India, Little India, Singapore

In Little India, you will be brought around the area where the vibrancy of colour from street stalls selling fresh fruit & vegetables, flower garland markets, traditional clothing stores, and incense shops will charm your senses. It is due to these trades and other opportunities that had inspired the early Indian community to move from the original Little India near the old seafront, up here where water buffalos used to roam the swampy area.
We will be visiting a hawker market here and get to sample a variety of Pakistani, North Indian & Indian Muslim street food cuisines, and experience the exciting vibrancy of the Indian community having their daily meals here.

Gerry was an amazing host, friendly, open and knowledgeable about each of the districts we visited. The food was varied and delicious and it was great learn a little about each of the unique communities that make up Singapore. Would recommend to any friend who is visiting the country.

The tour with Gerry could not have been much better. Not only did we eat diverse and delicious dishes, but Gerry made sure that any leftovers were donated directly to the local community, and to point out to us the food-stall owners we were patronizing in the first place. He also accommodated my dietary restrictions with ease. As a fourth generation Singaporean, our guide went above and beyond to immerse us foreigners in the quotidian experiences of the people whose city we were visiting. In other words, we avoided tourist traps in favor of gems hidden in plain sight. Gerry was evidently very well informed about Singapore’s culture and recent history. At times, he would show us dated photographs from online archives so we could compare what we were seeing to how the same place would have looked a century earlier. We had a small group. Eight people including the guide; three couples, me, and him. This number was intentional on Gerry’s behalf, and wise in my opinion since it meant everyone could fully participate and pose questions anytime an inquiry crossed the mind.
