CHIEF LIANNE

SINGAPORE: 24 HOURS

WITH LIANNE

Fascinated by the Singapore public 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

No, this tour does not run over 24 hours. But it does give a realistic day-in-the-life of of a Singaporean! At City Gallery, you will learn about the development from slums to the globally admired city that we are today. How did the city evolve? 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.
