Red Clogs Down the Five-Foot-Way™
A Chinatown Walk

 

BEST TRAVEL EXPERIENCE AWARD WINNER -  2010 SINGAPORE EXPERIENCE AWARDS

"It gave us an insight into the culture in Chinatown. We have been on some of the walks in London, and would like you to know that we found the experience every bit as entertaining and educational."
- Gerry Goresky, Canada

"The guide kept us entertained and I learnt a lot, not just about Singapore, but also about Chinese culture - an added bonus! We got to visit numerous sites around Chinatown which most tourists probably wouldn't normally get to see..."

-Matt G, Australia

 

 
 
Tour Synopsis
The street was filled from end to end, with stalls and knick-knacks of every kind. Here a pair of ready-made clogs, there a steaming hot bun. Sticky cakes, exotic fruits, sweetmeats - it's food paradise always on the streets of Chinatown. Enjoy the fragrance of Chinese tea, ginseng and herbal eggs. If you're brave, we'll even help you find your way about a very slippery wet market. Check out paper cars, houses, 'handphones', and even lingerie - all part of an ancient Chinese funeral ritual. We'll also introduce to you the Yins and Yangs of Chinese traditional medicine. And finally, we might just show you where to get those ready-made clogs and that steaming hot bun!
