The streets of Singapore’s Chinatown are filled with stalls selling goods and knick-knacks of all kinds. You can buy a steaming hot bun at one stall and a pair of clogs at the next. A licensed English-speaking guide will meet you at the Telok Ayer MRT station, outside Exit A (Cross Street) and take you on a 2.5-hour walking tour of this fascinating area. Sticky cakes, exotic fruits, sweetmeats: this is a food lover’s paradise! You’ll be tempted by the fragrances of Chinese tea, ginseng, and herbal eggs. Taste different food samples. You’ll see cars, houses, cellphones and even lingerie made out of paper - and all part of an ancient Chinese funeral ritual. Your guide will also introduce to you the concepts of yin and yang in traditional Chinese medicine. And finally, he'll really show you where to get your own ready-made clogs and the best spot to try a steaming hot bun! It’s a good idea to wear comfortable shoes for this walking tour, and to bring along an umbrella or poncho, and a bottle of drinking water.
