Experience this in person at Toa Payoh, the ‘granddaddy of all public housing towns’.

Toa Payoh is one of the oldest estates in Singapore and lunch today will be at a traditional hawker centre. The rest of the day and dinner is at leisure. There are so many things to see and do in Singapore. Public transport is cheap and very efficient and taxis are also cheap and plentiful. It’s easy to get around and explore on your own or with other members of your group. Visit Sentosa – bursting with theme parks and fun filled attractions via the transit system or cable car. Shop at Orchard Road or go ‘underground’ and visit City Link Mall – which takes you from Suntec City to Marina Square.

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel this morning followed by a walking tour today. Lined with pastel-hued shophouses, traditional eateries and hip boutiques, Joo Chiat/Katong is one of Singapore’s most iconic and storied neighbourhoods. Much of the district’s colourful charm from its days as a Peranakan (Straits-born people of Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage) enclave has been retained, yet fresh tenants have injected a dose of cool into the cobweb of five-foot ways and narrow lanes. Along the stretch, you’ll find some of Singapore’s prettiest heritage shophouses painted in elegant pastel hues and with beautiful reliefs, motifs and other intricate flourishes upon their façades. And what better way to complement heritage Peranakan architecture than with authentic food from the community? Lunch today is at Guan Hoe Soon -Singapore’s oldest Peranakan restaurant, having whipped up authentic nonya dishes since 1953. Peranakan cuisine is fiery, complex and brimming with Chinese and Malay flavours – to really experience the community’s traditions through your taste buds.
