Eat, Pray, Love in Singapore – 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour in Balestier
Ask locals about Balestier and the first thing they will probably mention is the amazing makan places – chicken rice (both halal and non-halal), bak kut teh, tandoori and so on. They might also point out that Balestier is a one-stop for well-priced lighting equipment and bathroom accessories. There's more to this quaint neighbourhood than these accolades, of course! On this private walking tour in Balestier, learn how ordinary folks forged on in the olden times to leave legacies we're immensely proud of, and just how committed we are to keeping those traditions alive!
Along the way, your personal guide and storyteller will delve into the importance of food in our Asian culture – from a basic need to a way to earn a living since the mid-1800s, to its significant role in multiculturalism in Singapore. Surely, it's the sticky rice that binds everyone together! No wonder UNESCO describes Singapore's hawker centres as "community dining rooms' where people from diverse backgrounds gather and share the experience of dining over breakfast, lunch and dinner".
