Full description
Join a knowledgeable guide on this 3.5-hour tour of Singapore’s Malay heritage. Malays have inhabited the area that is now Singapore since the 17th-Century, adding deep cultural value to the region. Listen as your guide recounts stories of the collective spirit that rose during the darkest days of World War II.

Begin your tour at Kampong Glam. Once the seat of the old Malay royalty, it retains the charm of a bygone era. Make a stop at Tampines New Town, which received the UN World Habitat Award for being an outstanding human settlement project in 1992. See how much the town has changed since it won the award.

Continue to Changi Beach where your guide will recount stories of the Sook Ching Massacre during World War II. See the plaque that was erected to commemorate the lives that were lost. 

You will then drive through the rustic and laid-back Changi Village, where you will discover a more relaxing side to Singapore, providing a notable contrast to Tampines New Town, a typical heartland township of present day Singapore.
