Day 03 - Singapore
Experience the four distinct cultures of Singapore, its fast disappearing crafts and rare sights of the old "villages" where early immigrants lived. Begin the journey through time with a drive through "Little India" with its pulsating mood. Then, Arab Street, the old Malay quarter of the city. See the Sultan Mosque and the colorful bazaar where batik cloth, carvings and basket ware stalls crowd the narrow sidewalk known as "the five foot way."
Continue your journey to China Town
, a place where many Singapore forefathers made their first homes. Explore the streets of Chinatown on foot and visit a local Chinese Medicine shop selling traditional medicines and herbs. Visit the Sri Mariamman Temple
, the oldest and most important Hindu Temple in Singapore. And have a local handmade dim sum lunch after the tea appreciation session at a Chinese tea house
Take a walk along the Peranakan Trail
to sample all things Peranakan in Singapore and have a chance to savor some of the Peranankan well-known snacks. After all that strolling, of course a stop by a colonial house to have an authentic Peranakan dinner is a must.
