WITH YOKE CHUN

Fascinated by the Singapore housing story? How did we go from slums to enviable housing for all in 50 years? Visit wet market, a hawker centre and two HDB homes and meet with the families. See where locals live!

ITINERARY

At the heart of it all, this tour is about the homes of Singaporeans. But we start out at Chinatown Heritage Centre, where you will be transported back in time to the 1950s and 60s where cramped squatter living in shophouses were the way of life. What are Housing Development Board (HDB) apartment flats where 85% of locals live? You will marvel at how we painstaking plan our land use e.g. how we accommodate our skyscrapers; build our homes; plan our garden city or even what we think of when we bury our dead, among the many things city planners have to consider.

Then we visit two HDB homes and meet with the families and learn everything there is to know about life in Singapore. This is an exclusive arrangement we have with the home owners. Learn about different HDB home types, why cats are not allowed to be kept as pets, and try home-made desserts like chendol or bubur chacha, and generally talk to the owners and see how the average person lives in the Singapore of today.

You will also visit a wet market, a hawker centre, all within a typical neighbourhood estate. Meet locals, eat local food, see local building types. Doesn’t get more real than this. To fully experience Singapore, is to dive deep into where locals live, shop, eat and mingle and experience a typical Singaporean neighbourhood.

YOKE CHUN

Yoke Chun

Yoke will never say this about herself, but she is one of the kindest, warmest and most giving persons around. What's amazing is that she is operationally as effective as a drill sergeant. Which is no wonder she is one of the best at what she does. Warm and genuine, operational ninja, and a master juggler in life!
