A NEW travel company in Singapore, Tribe, has launched a tour that aims to offer participants glimpses of the personal life of the nation’s founding father, Lee Kuan Yew. The 3.5-hour tour, About Mr Lee, was introduced last month as Singaporeans marked one year of the leader’s passing.
A newly curated tour aims at unravelling the story of the late Lee Kuan Yew, from boyhood to childhood. There is no denying how the late Lee Kuan Yew’s political legacy and contributions have impacted not just Singaporeans but the world over.
Four-hour tour takes visitors to key sites, such as founding PM’s childhood estate For breakfast, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew preferred unsweetened bean curd and plain water. He apparently liked his beer at room temperature. And he kept a photo of his wife, Madam Kwa Geok Choo, in front of his cycling machine when he exercised.
