On this walking tour in Singapore’s Chinatown, learn about the ceremonies and rituals that mark the different stages of a Chinese person’s life: birth rites, weddings, funerals, religious sacrifices and festivals. These traditions were carried to Singapore by Chinese immigrants in the 19th century, and many of these practices still continue on today.

Learn how the theory of yin and yang applies to traditional Chinese medicine as you meet with a Chinese doctor at a medicine hall. Walk through a wet market (fresh food market commonly found in Asian countries) and explore the stalls of livestock, vegetables and various housewares. Discover the local delicacies commonly enjoyed during Chinese celebrations and taste some of these sweets at a traditional confectionery shop.

Visit a wedding accessories shop and gain insight into Chinese wedding customs from your guide. Enjoy tea tasting at a local tea shop and learn about the importance of the tea ceremony during a Chinese wedding. Get a glimpse into Chinese funeral rites, such as burning fake paper money and miniature items like cars and houses to carry on to loved ones in the afterlife.

Join this walking tour for a fascinating look into Singapore’s culturally rich Chinatown to discover the traditions and practices of the Chinese.

My main complaint was the tickets stated that the tour started at 10.00am. We arrived at 9.45 to be told that the tour stared at 9.30. You need to make sure that your info is correct. We caught with the tour missing the first 15min. Once on the tour we found it very informative and the tour guide Ivy was excellent.

I absolutely loved this walking tour. Our guide Bernard was knowledgeable, engaging and answered all my questions. It was a great way to learn about the Chinese culture, particularly rituals and traditions of birth, death and marriage. Would highly recommend this tour, ask for Bernard!

We enjoyed our tour with our guide very much and learnt a lot of the Chinese habits. We were lucky to be the only guests this morning and had the full attention of our charming guide.
