Meet Singapore's early pioneers! Tues May 9's weekly walk

Description
Come with us to explore our island's oldest neighbourhood, and learn about the early pioneers who helped shape Singapore's future. Step back to a time when CHIJMES was a peaceful oasis, occupied by French nuns dedicated to girls' education and the abandoned babies left to their care. A time when the La Salle Brothers founded Singapore's earliest Roman Catholic church, next to which Indian convicts built their prison. A time when an ambitious Irish architect left his everlasting imprint on this fledgling colony.

Discover the rich tapestry of the Waterloo Street arts precinct, a small but vibrant area which is emblematic of Singapore's cultural and religious diversity. Here you'll find a Synagogue, a Roman Catholic church, a Buddhist and a Hindu Temple, as well as a calligraphy centre, dance studio, visual arts centre, street art and much more.


Small Group Walking tours have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!

Please note that the cost of these tours is a little higher as we keep the number small. The quality will be however very high; see comments below from our last one at the end of January which was a prototype for this new series:

"I would like to thank you for the tour yesterday, it’s been a wonderful morning! Your guide is amazing and so expert about history".

"I just wanted to let you know that my aunt had a brilliant time yesterday. She couldn't say enough about the tour and how great your guide was. Thanks so much! I will certainly recommend you".

"Your guide was WONDERFUL! We all enjoyed her. I'm looking forward to the next tour."
