What To Expect

The early Chinese have visited Singapore since the 12th century and the Chinese community accounts for the majority of the population. Since then, there have been 3 waves of this migration from China. The Chinatown of Singapore, sometimes known as “Bullock Cart Water”, was described in the 1823 Singapore Town Plan as “Chinese Town”. This neighborhood has evolved with the Chinese communities and kept up with the lifestyles of the Chinese diaspora in Singapore. Let's eat our way through the Chinatown district to discover how eating and cuisine is central to Singaporeans' lifestyle. Let me guide you through the process of sourcing, selecting and preparation of food while explaining the associated beliefs and meanings behind the dishes. In addition, we will learn about the land use planning process and of socialized housing programs.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
