Những điều bạn sẽ làm

Join me, a local, on a walking culture tour of Geylang Serai and Katong where we will explore through places locals go, away from the usual tourists spots.

We will meet at a convenient location i.e. MRT station and make our way on foot to Geylang Serai and then to Katong. During this 3-hr tour we will visit the vibrant Geylang Serai wet market as well as the hawker centre. We will sample local malay snacks or kueh such as putu-piring which is highlighted in netflix food street show and lopes. We will also swing by Geylang Serai heritage gallery to understand the malay culture.

We will then walk towards Joo Chiat Road to look at some of the traditional shop-houses and sample the crispy curry puffs. We can also admire some colourful Peranakan shop houses architecture as we walk towards Katong to explore the unique peranakan enclave at Katong to understand the fusion between Straits Chinese and Malay culture and you can sample the famous laksa dish. At Katong we will pop into Kim Choo museum, a private peranakan museum.

Tour is normally conducted in the morning as the market is more lively and of course it's a bit cooler in the morning. Expect about 2 km of walk. This walking tour is a mix of cultural tour with some food tasting. The tour will start at Geylang Serai and ends at Katong. And please come hungry as we are going to taste at least 6 snacks!

I am a chartered building services engineer by training. And a weekend volunteer docent at Singapore Zoo.

I am also a freelance licenced tourist guide. Born and bred in Singapore I would love to show visitors my beautiful and unique city especially the off the beaten tracks, places less travelled by visitors.

Cheers.

Rara was great! Meeting spot was easy to get to, and it was perfect for me as I likely would not have gone to the area on my own. The food was delicious and I learned a lot about Singapore, malay foods, and about Rara herself. She's easy to talk to, laughs easily and made me feel very comfortable. I was very full by the end, and even had leftovers to snack on later. I would recommend this tour for anyone who's already gone to all the touristy areas and wants to check out somewhere new.

Rara did a nice job with showing me around Geylang Serai, Joo Chiat Road and Kantong. I found her to be a little reserved, so don't be afraid to ask any questions to learn more about the Malay and Peranakan culture if you're interested, as she seems to be quite knowledgable.

For anyone who wants to gain a firsthand experience of local culture, foods, history and customs, this is the tour for you. Rara is extremely knowledgeable (she could answer all the random questions we asked), and her tour is very well-planned. She is a professional and very adaptable to your needs and interests, which we really appreciated. We ate and walked our way through neighborhoods and loved the snacks and laksa along the way! Thanks, Rara, for a wonderful experience on our first morning in Singapore.

Rara was very generous with her time and knowledge, and she had lots to share. Had a few initial communications and ‘meeting point’ issues at the start (I walked to the meeting point rather than catch the metro, so didn’t know where the exact place to meet inside the station was). But all was fine, and we went on to an abundance of eating and ‘viewing’ places. Definitely don’t have breakfast before you go, as Rara makes sure - and covers - all of the brilliant food she encourages you to have. The laksa was a real highlight - most delicate and well-balanced I’ve ever had.

Met Rara and walked through Geylang Serai. Tasted a bunch of local made snacks. Rara told us about the area and provided lots of interesting information. We visited a hawker center and then the old market underneath. Loved seeing the fresh produce and seafood! Bustling with activity as locals shopped. This was my favorite part of the tour. Walked quite a bit with Rara always pointing out areas of interest and providing historical information as well as present day facts. Ended our tour eating Laksa, a delicious curry soup. This is a great way to tour new places. Rara was a great guide. My only suggestion is that she incorporates taking pictures of her clients as they explore these new areas and try these new foods. We have good memories but not much documentation. Highly recommend this experience!
