Experience highlights
Welcome to Chinatown! Named after the bullock carts that used to supply fresh water to its residents, Singapore's Chinatown offers more than just a name when it comes to heritage. Chinatown is a bustling mix of old and new, filled with traditional shops and markets as well as cool stores and cafes. Our signature Chinatown Heritage Food Trail begins with kaya toast for traditional breakfast. Kaya toast is toasted bread filled with butter and kaya, a jam made from eggs, sugar, coconut milk and pandan leaves. Enjoy it with half-boiled eggs and hot coffee, just like a local! Hit to the country's wet market for some authentic local foodie action before we continue to with a plate of savoury carrot cake, which has no carrot and one should not confuse this with the dessert carrot cake. We will also be trying laksa, made with a rich and creamy coconut milk "curry-like" gravy. Let's join the queue for the most popular “Michelin” hawker stall serving our national dish – chicken rice, which is also listed on “World’s 50 most delicious foods” complied by CNN Go. We end off the meal with some desserts and takeaway snacks.


This experience requires a minimum of 2 persons to proceed. If your booking is for fewer than the minimum number, we'll confirm your place 2 days before the start of the experience.
