Want a break from the concrete jungle?
For those who wish to take a break from the concrete jungle and catch a glimpse of what Singapore was like before it evolved into the modern city it is today. The Nostalgic Bike and Bite tour (approximately 15km) will take you to the island's most nostalgic areas of Katong & Joo Chiat. Declared as Singapore’s first Heritage Town in 2011, this East Coast enclave still holds timeless treasures and insight into the rich Peranakan cultural heritage of the 1950s. The area’s identity is especially shaped by its unique pre-war architecture – colourful, two-story shophouses and terrace houses with ornate facades, intricate motifs and ceramic tiles. It's also one of the country’s favorite foodie destinations well-loved by many Singaporeans.
During the tour, we will be riding together, biking from food stall to food stall, enjoying small bites of different ethnic foods. Food such as the famous Katong laksa (spicy coconut milk-based noodle soup), kueh chan (dumplings) and other Nonya delicacies.
Along the way, the tour guide will share with you changes about Singapore over the years. You will also learn about the history, culture and tradition of an unique group of people known as “Peranakan,” a dominant local group in Katong. Towards the end, we will have lunch at one of the best hawker centres on the island: “Old Airport Road Hawker Centre.” Evolved from street food culture, hawker centres have become a marker of Singapore as a multicultural city-state. Nostalgic Bike and Bite tour will let you eat like a local in “The Shiok Ways”.
