What You Can Expect

Best 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.

This is a MUST do tour. Loved every minute of it especially the Trishaw ride. We had a very entertaining rider with excellent boom boom box playing music. Public were waving and taking pics of us. Dinner was very tasty and fresh. Just the right amount of time spent shopping/viewing in Chinatown. Loved the harbour boat ride and commentary. Night time view of Singapore completely different. Well worth the money and highly recommend this. Another box ticked.

This tour was fabulous. We had the best time doing this tour out of all things we did on our 16 night holiday. The tour host was really funny and entertaining, the included meal was excellent, looking around Chinatown was great. The Trishaw ride was sooo good. We had great weather and they all worked hard to make sure we had fun. The bumboat ride was also excellent and we saw so much in a short time. Everything was timed to perfection and it couldn't have been better !! loved every minute of it !! I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good night out.

Tour guide Boon was great, friendly, informative, efficient and professional. Bum boat ride was relaxing, great way to see Singapore River area, we got lucky and were there in time to enjoy the Marina Bay Sands Light Show over the River. Excellent value for money, Includes pick up and drop off from hotel which was very organised and on time, pretty impressive considering there were many people on this tour who came from many different hotels.
