What You Can Expect
The four-hour evening tour of Singapore's Chinatown offers rare insights into Chinese history in Singapore. You'll visit the Yong Galley, the fine art of calligraphy is demonstrated by the Master Calligrapher who will convert your name into auspicious Chinese characters on a red fan which is yours to keep as a souvenir. You'll also have the opportunity to wander along Chinatown's narrow lanes at the Night Market and test your bargaining skills with street vendors selling souvenirs, fashion, leather goods and much more.
The highlight of the Singapore Chinatown evening tour is your trip through Chinatown's exuberant Night Market by trishaw. You'll thread your way through the market's hustle and bustle by the chauffeured limousine of times gone by, traveling through Chinatown to Clarke Quay. Here you'll take a cruise along the Singapore River in a bumboat, the traditional cargo boats once used to ferry goods up and down the river. You'll see Singapore lit up at night, highlighting the beautifully restored shop houses, the modern skyscrapers of the financial district, colonial buildings and the iconic Merlion statue. The cruise disembarks at the Esplanade Theatre by the Bay venue on the waterfront.
We had the best fun. Our tour leader Florence was great. The Chinatown Night market walkabout (by ourselves) was great - found some "bargains", met for a delightful dinner with other group members. Lovely dinner and conversation with the group. Then the trishaw ride!! What a hoot - bit disappointed we didn't get the boombox trishaw (it was in front of us, so we did get the music), but we had a honking horn and flashing lights. The ride down the main road with buses, taxis and cars going by was such fun (we are in our mid 60's), a race with another couple of trishaw was quite exhilarating, we all arrived safely at the Quay and to see Singapore from the water at night is wonderful. Different aspect to this vibrant city. Would recommend this tour for any age group.
This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. We really enjoyed being escorted around Chinatown with an experienced and knowledgeable guide.
We loved our chinese dinner/banquet, the food was excellent., and plenty of it.
By far and away, the trishaw ride was the highlight of the night.
The drivers were very skilled with the trishaws, especially when we entered Singapore traffic, and they made it fun, but very safe.
Next was the bumboat ride. Probably the best way to see Singapore is from the river. The city lights and the buildings, as well as the Marina Bay Sands, the Merlion, and the flyer really look awesome from the river. We also learn't a lot about history of the river and it's surrounding buildings from the bumboat guide.
This was a really great way to see some of the sights of Singapore from a unique mode of transport.
