Singapore is a multicultural city, home to many unique architectures and cuisines. With the hustle and bustle of life, we may have failed to notice the beauty of unique architectures in our city, where old meets new. Through this 1 day tour, we want to capture the essence of Singapore through food and historical iconic buildings we have missed.
EAST COAST ROAD:
Begin the day with our traditional kaya toast breakfast at Mei Chin Mei Confectionery, which has been around for more than 80 years. One of the few coffee places left in Singapore with retro floor tiles and hanging ceiling fans, bringing us back to what life is Singapore was like in the 70s.
Known for its multicultural heritage, Joo Chiat is home to the latest number of conserved nostalgic Peranakan shophouses built in Singapore between the 1840s to 1960s. We can take a stroll down memory lane, while capturing the beauty of these colourful shophouses
Further down the road, Katong is famous for the Singaporean dish, Katong Laksa. We will stop to enjoy lunch at one of the few famous coffeeshops famous for it’s Katong Laksa, and a uniquely Singaporean dish, Rojak. (49 East Coast Road or 328 Katong Laksa)
Despite being one of Singapore’s oldest public housing estate, it has maintained it’s charm over decades. We can visit Tian Kee & Co., previously a 54 year old provision shop which is now converted to a cafe, and an old playground in the neighbourhood to reminisce the good old days of Singapore.
We may also choose to stroll down, to visit one of Singapore’s newest iconic buildings, Singapore Sports Hub. A lifestyle hub that will offer world class sports facilities as well as lifestyle and entertainment facilities.
KEONG SIAK STREET/CHINATOWN DISTRICT:
Singapore’s red light district in the 1960s, features shophouses featuring unique architectural style. It now houses many bars and cafes, a far cry from the district it once was. We may stop at various areas, including the iconic Tong Ah Building for photos. Before having dinner at Foong Kee Coffeeshop, famous for its Roast Duck noodles and Wanton Mee, one of the few dishes well loved by Singaporeans.
*Optional: Pinnacle at Duxton. A newer residential complex, featuring 2 of the world’s longest sky gardens, giving a bird’s eye view of Chinatown area.
We end our tour at the world’s highest urban craft brewery, Level 33. It offers an amazing view of Singapore’s CBD Skyline, showing us how Singapore has changed over the span of 50 years.
