I was born and raised in Japan, and came to Singapore for my undergraduate exchange. Studying abroad in Singapore is one of the most amazing experience in my life. Now that I am working in Singapore after my university, I am seeing Singapore from different angles. My take on Singapore is "good things come in a small package." Yes, Singapore is a tiny country but this country has so many things to offer. Remember that there are many more off-beaten tracks before your eyes. I am highly interested to hear your stories, so bear with me if I ask you a lot of questions :)

I love my city as it is secure and have many great local food delights ranging from Chinese food to Italian food. I am a free lance photographer (Hobby),I am an outgoing person who likes to socailise with people and meet new friends allowing them to know my country better and to allow them to see the scenic views of singapore such as the Merlion which is the Singapore’s greatest hotspot area, which many will definitely have to see it when you visit singapore.

Hi I am Kenny and I am an Events Planner/Tour Guide that is based in Singapore. Having years of experience in planning government, corporate and charity events; my greatest satisfaction at the end of the day, is always to see enlightened minds, engaged hearts and the creation of a truly memorable experience. As a globe trotting adventurer myself, I can certainly understand the importance of getting more travel "hits" than "misses"; given the limited time, resources and opportunities there are, during one's travels (and this is where the services of a travel insider/tour guide like me may come in real handy). As a raving fan of Singapore's culture, food and entertainment offerings, I have curated a series of "Singapore's Hidden Treasures Tours", which brings you access to the best non-touristy local experiences and the island's most beautiful scenic spots. You may also like to know that my tours are fully customisable for all ages, as well as for those with special mobility, dietary or security requirements. So please feel free to let me know what you need and I will most assuredly help you make the most out of your trip. With this, I look forward to seeing you soon in our beautiful island of Singapore. Until then!
