What You Can Expect

Singapore's Chinatown Trishaw Night Tour with Transfer

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 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 wonderful. We had the best time. We didnt have time for shopping in Chinatown as with the traffic we were delayed starting out. The Chinese dinner was lovely, plenty of it, our tour lady was excellent, very informative. The river cruise with the lights was out of this world, Clarke Quay a sight to see at night. The trishaw was the best , so much fun and the drivers polite and attentive.

What a great evening! We had a great group and everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was lovely and being vegetarians the restaurant catered for our requirements and produced a fantastic meal. The Trishaw ride was fun and certainly got the adrenalin going as our 'driver' negotiated the roads! The Bum Boat ride was icing on the cake, seeing the amazing buildings lit up and listening to a recorded guide.

Brilliant evening. We were staying out in Changi so had to make our own way to another hotel, where we were collected by taxi and taken to China town to join the tour. Traffic on a Friday evening made everyone late, so we only had 5 mins in Bhudda temple. Then walked around China town, into medicine shop, then to restaurant. Was impressed with meal, spring rolls, soup, 3 different dishes, rice, then a mango pudding, all very good. Then onto rickshaw ride, really good fun. Our guy didn't say anything but others did. Rickshaws took us to the river for the boat rip around the harbour. Then back to taxis home. Really good fun, Gary, our guide was excellent. Very good value for money.

Another awesome evening with a lovely dinner included in Chinatown. The trishaw ride was very interesting and an experience that I will never forget, simply amazing. You also got picked up and taken back to your hotel included in the price. I would have liked to have had some more free time there, but you can always go back if you have some free time on your holiday. Chinatown is a great place to visit.

This was a fun evening. The meal was OK, but the bike ride and the trip in the boat was really good fun. Can't understand why we went to the Chinese medicine shop - we learnt nothing and it was just a place to encourage us to spend money.

This was loads of fun. The trishaw ride is quite an adventure and everyone in the group really enjoyed it. The dinner was scrumptious - probably the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. Then the bumboat ride was a great ending to the tour as it was a perfect night and provided a great perspective on some of Singapore's key landmarks. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.
