What You Can Expect

Singapore's Chinatown Trishaw Night Tour

Explore neon-lit Chinatown by trishaw on this enjoyable evening tour

Start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Singapore city or Sentosa Island hotel. Board your air-conditioned coach with your guide and enjoy the views as you travel to Singapore’s downtown district. Alternatively, if you're staying at the Changi Village Hotel or Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel, make your own way to the starting point of your tour.

Begin in Chinatown, a prettily illuminated warren of markets, eateries and stalls bursting with activity. As you walk, learn from your guide about its origins as the first home of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants. Savor the atmosphere and history of the bustling, temple-dotted lanes, and browse the myriad of stalls in the fascinating Night Market.

Stop at the Yong Gallery craft center for a demonstration of ancient Chinese calligraphy. Watch spellbound as an expert calligrapher converts your name or a quote into delicate Chinese letters, etching them on a paper fan that is yours to keep.

After a stop for a Chinese dinner at a Chinatown restaurant, board a 2-seater trishaw for a memorable ride. Be swept up in the captivating street theater around you as your cyclist-chauffeur pedals you through the Night Market and Chinatown to Clarke Quay.

Leave your trishaw here and enjoy a Singapore River cruise on a bumboat, a modern version of the old cargo vessels that once plied the river. Admire the illuminated skyscrapers and glimpse the iconic Merlion statue and the three towers of the Marina Bay Sands complex along the way.

Afterward, step ashore and enjoy a drop-off at your central Singapore or Sentosa Island hotel, where your tour ends. Or, travel back independently to the Changi Village or Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This is a fun filled tour. We were picked up and taken to a meeting point in Chinatown then our guide gave us a short walk round Chinatown where we had a calligrapher paint our names on a fan. Dinner in Chinatown was great, both in quality and quantity and the company of other tour participants made for a really enjoyable meal. We then had free time to walk around Chinatown markets; most people appeared a bit bored as the stalls are very repetitive and we were simply trying to fill in time until our meeting time for the next segment. Then the trishaw ride - this is so much fun, remember to give your rickshaw driver a well earned tip. The highlight of the tour was the bum boat ride at night, stunning views of Singapore at night. If you do one tour in Singapore, make it this one.
