What you'll do

Join a like-minded local host to discover bustling Chinatown and the local street food culture - which in this neighbourhood means the Chinatown Food Complex hawker centre, the largest in the city.Read more +


Discover traditional Chinatown and soak up the history of the character packed streets as you explore with your local, visiting important temples and traditional Chinese medicine shops, learning a little about the local culture and the origins of the area. 

Explore the hawker centre with your local which is a paradise for any street food lover! You’ll be able to sample the dishes that Chinatown is renowned for like poh piah (fresh spring roll), chwee kueh (water rice cake) and the famous chicken rice. 

Your local knows the best vendors to buy each dish at, so as well as discovering new ingredients and delicacies, you know you’ll be eating only the very best and getting the most authentic and local taste of this well known food court.

As well as eating your way around the hawker centre, you’ll visit the local wet market and where fresh produce (and even live seafood and other animals) are bought, so you’ll get an authentic glimpse into the local culture and see why the street food scene here is so unique. 


What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see well known markets, eateries and stores, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
