What You Can Expect

Singapore's Chinatown Trishaw Night Tour

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

After hotel pickup, your tour starts with the drive by coach to Chinatown, one of Singapore’s liveliest neighborhoods. With your guide, walk along the bustling streets lined with restaurants and market stalls as you hear about the history the district, dating back to when early Chinese immigrants arrived here.

At a Chinese medical hall, learn about the traditional medicine practices that the Chinese have been using since ancient times to help regulate their yin and yang. Hear about various herbs that, combined with activities like tai chi, moxibustion and acupuncture, keep the neighborhood healthy. Then visit a Chinatown restaurant for dinner before heading to the Night Market, where you can bargain with vendors to purchase gifts and souvenirs from some of the many stalls, if you wish.

Next, the exciting part of your evening begins as you hop on a 2-seat trishaw, pedaled by a cyclist-chauffeur, for a ride through the busy lanes of Chinatown to Clarke Quay. Here, trade the trishaw for a bumboat, a modern replica of a traditional riverboat once used to carry cargo up the Singapore River. On board, glide along the river and admire Singapore’s illuminated skyline, including Marina Bay Sands resort and the Merlion statue. When you get off the boat, your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

This was a fantastic tour! Began in Chinatown and got free time to explore the markets, dinner was at a lovely restaurant and was Yum-Cha style. The tri-shaw tour was definitely a highlight of this whole night: it began in Chinatown, went along the streets of Singapore, finishing in Clarke Quay. The riders were all friendly and made it such a great experience. Our bum boat ride was equally amazing, it went right past Marina Bay Sands and the Merlion which were highlights to see at night. Highly recommend this tour to anyone seeing Singapore for the first time, or just looking for a different experience. Great for all ages!

We both had a great night - lovely Chinese meal, had a lot of fun being transported around by Trishaw, then finished off wonderfully by the river cruise from Clarke Quay.

We had a wonderful evening. We had a great Chinese dinner and trishaw ride. Then we ended up the evening with an evening boat cruise to see all the lights and the buildings lit up. Best tour we took.

The hotel pick up and transfer to the tour bus was a little disorganised but once the tour started, it was fantastic. Our guide was great, the dinner enjoyable, the riverboat ride spectacular and the Trishaw ride a fantastic experience. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
