Located in Chinatown in the Central Business District in Singapore, Telok AyerStreet has a two-fold significance. It’s both the name of the area that Sir Stamford Raffles set aside for Chinese immigrants when the British ruled Singapore and it was also one of the first streets in this area. Fast-forward 150 years and it’s now a bustling tourist destination. Walking down Telok Ayer gives you a chance to glimpse into the past, as many of the building have been conserved and restored. The shophouses that you see appear much as they did in the 1800s, showing what life was like in this waterfront area. However, there are plenty of modern amenities, too, including quirky shops, cafes and plenty of places to dine.

The other draw to Telok AyerStreet is the many places of worship that you’ll find in close proximity to one another. Hokkien temples are located near mosques and shrines as well as a Methodist church. Grateful immigrants who wanted to thank their gods for a safe journey built most of these locations. While there are many examples to visit, some of the most interesting include: Thian Hock Keng Temple, the oldest Hokkien temple in Singapore, Nagore Durgha Shrine and Al-Abrar Mosque. Keep an eye out for heritage markers or explore one of the many museums in the area to learn more about this rich and diverse history.

Best Bar Experience with Dinner & Cocktails included and a Gin Masterclass

star-5
3
Before the night begins, we’ll take you to a food street in Chinatown—where you can try authentic, local food. After Dinner, we’ll be heading to one of Singapore’s largest nightlife districts to uncover two hidden bars. First up, is a secret underground bar. Despite being on The World’s 50 Best Bars for consecutive years, they still feel like that cool kid who refuses to play by the rules. So forget cocktails that taste all the same. Over here, they create seasonal menus that don’t even indicate the type of alcohol used, just the ingredients—all to give bar-goers like you a multi-sensory experience. Next, you’ll be attending a Gin Masterclass by a guy who has an obsession with Gin and Tonic. You’ll learn and explore the botanicals that go into Gin, the process of making of it, and its unique flavour profiles. You’ll get to make your very own bespoke cocktail. Book our tour now and we will make sure you have an awesome experience at our top local bars.
