Day 02, Taste of Singapore Cultures Tour (9.00am to 1.00pm)
Singapore was part of British Malaya for many centuries. It was ruled by the Sultanate of Johor before
the British came to the Island and set up a port and colony in 1819. After World War II, Singapore
became an independent nation and republic, where she remains till today.
Today, Singapore has a diverse populace of just over 5 million people or more which is made up of
Chinese, Malays, Indians, Caucasians and Eurasians (plus other mixed groups) and Asians of different
origins, which is in line with the nation’s history as a crossroads for various ethnic and racial groups.
Experience up close the various cultures come alive before your very eyes as
you explore the nooks and crannies of each ethnic heritage enclave by turns.
At Kampong Glam, admire the quiet majesty of the Sultan’s Mosque with its
unmistakable golden dome, explore colourful food eateries, and browse
through old-fashioned shops selling batiks, carpets, rattan basket-ware and
exotic perfumes.
Take the opportunity to try ‘Teh Halia’ in one of the shops. Teh halia is Malay for ginger tea. This
slightly spicy and sweet drink is served in traditional coffee shops in Singapore and Malaysia. The coffee
shop version of the ginger milk tea is especially sweet as they use sweetened condensed milk. Tell us
what do you think of drink as our guide will share you the benefit of drinking teh halia.
Travel next to Little India where you will see bustling streets showcasing
aromatic and exotic spices, colourful flower-garland shops, vegetable
vendors, busy curry houses and even henna
painting!
Moving on to Tekka Centre, it is a multi-use
building comprising a wet market, food
centre and shops in Little India.
Today, Tekka Centre remains a landmark in Little India, where
different ethnic communities congregate. You will get to watch up-close roti prata flipping in one of
the shops. Roti Prata is one of the local favourite all day meal; a fried flatbread that is cooked over a
flat grill. It is usually served with a vegetable or meat-based curry and it is originated from Singapore. Chinatown completes the cultural kaleidoscope with the old and the new, tradition and modernity, in the rows of streets where old traditional shophouses are lovingly restored into tempting restaurants, teahouses and shops selling Oriental arts, crafts and souvenirs as well as traditional Chinese medicinal herbs.
You will also get to try Bakkwa while you are in Chinatown. Bakkwa, is known as rougan; it is a Chinese salty-sweet dried meat product similar to jerky. Traditionally made of pork, beef or mutton, which is prepared with spices, sugar, salt and soy sauce, while dried on racks at around 122 to 140 °F
