Full description
Discover the origins of Singapore on a private tour of the Serangoon district, one of the city's oldest residential neighborhoods. Learn how life is lived in this wonderful melting pot of cultures. Enter one of the community parks to discover how one of the world's most densely populated cities can be beautifully green away from the skyscrapers. 

Learn how the 3 main cultures and religions live in harmony and admire the Hindu and Chinese temples at the Sri Muneeswaran shrine and Hiang Foo Siang temple. Enjoy an ice-cold coffee or tea in a bag and drink it on the go. Check out a traditional medicine shop and find out how Chinese medicine is different from western practice. 

Known for its fun workshops, Serangoon provides something for everyone. Check out the wet market where the locals buy fresh produce. To round off your tour, take a bus to Singapore’s last surviving Kampong. You won’t believe your eyes, it feels like a true jungle. This peaceful village feels as though time stood still. There are homegrown vegetables and tropical gardens filled with banana and coconut trees. As you walk around, your guide will tell you fascinating stories about this tranquil village that has remained relatively undiscovered.
