You’ll spend a few hours with one of our Singapore hosts perusing some of the city's most famous food courts - and by perusing, we really mean eating your way around.

Singapore is a city which runs on hawker food, so it’s only right you taste the delicious dishes which are the staples of the city’s food culture while you’re in town.

You’ll learn all about the city’s culinary heritage and the Indian, Chinese and Malay influences that come together in a delicious fusion of smells, tastes and colors at these local hawker centers.

A practical approach is key to learning, so get ready to do a lot of eating!

You’ll visit a couple of the city’s oldest and most authentic hawker centers like Maxwell Road, Old Airport Road and Lau Pa Sat, tasting scrumptious dishes like laska, satay, Hainanese chicken and black pepper crab.

Beyond treating your taste buds and tummy, we’re all about ‘behind the scenes’ here, so your host will also take you to a local wet market, where you can see locals haggling over fresh produce and rare herbs. Prepare for a serious food coma.

    • Join your host and get an authentic taste of Singapore as you sample its diverse cuisine
    • Explore two hawker centers with your host and sample 6-8 dishes that they pick for you
    • Your host knows which hawker centers (and even which stall) to visit to get the best kind of each specialty, so you can sample the dishes that different centers are famous for
    • Discover unique ingredients and get a glimpse of local life as you explore a wet market - you won’t get wet though, don’t worry
    • Learn about the city’s diverse culinary culture and traditions - through tasting its cuisine, our favorite way of learning!
    • Get tips for other hawker centers to visit so you can continue to eat and drink like a local for the rest of your trip
