You’ll set off on a jaunt with one of our Singapore hosts around Chinatown where you’ll find some of the best street food in the city - a bold statement when you’re in a city which practically lives off street eats, but let us explain.

Aside from the Chinatown Food Complex, which is where you can taste Michelin starred street food in the form of soya sauce chicken and rice - which is wildly more tasty than its name lets on - you’ll find such delights as poh piah (fresh spring roll) and chwee kueh (water rice cake).

Maybe it’ll be the food which lulls you into a coma, or maybe it’s the swaying lanterns, billowing smoke screens and the air of mystery from traditional Chinese medicine shops which will hypnotize you, who can say.

From here, you’ll walk (probably quite slowly after all that food) to a traditional wet market where you can see live seafood and try to decipher all manner of ingredients.

    • Join your host and discover Chinatown’s hawker centres and street markets, sampling some of the delicious street food that’s served there
    • Sample 6 - 8 of the most authentic local dishes, from unusual delicacies to Chinatown’s staple dishes
    • Explore the wet market and discover where fresh produce is sourced
    • Taste local specialties like chicken rice, spring rolls, satay and water rice cakes

    • This experience will be personalized to you!
