After much persuasion, I finally relented to accompanying my sister for a tour at Kampong Glam with The Original Singapore Walks for one of her projects.
Having not been very satisfied with my first tour to Kampong Glam back in primary school, I wasn't quite expecting much from this tour experience. However, I was soon proven wrong - unlike typical tours which tend to be a mere show-and-tell of facts and figures, this tour unfolded like a story for me and left me having a closer personal connection with the place. Like a seasoned storyteller, our young and bubbly tour guide brought us into a whole new world, from the start of our journey at Bugis MRT right till the end, reliving the old tales of the Tungkus and experiencing the cultural rituals of the ethnic enclave. It was a side of Singapore I had never experienced before!
One of the most distinguishing traits of this tour was its personability - both in terms of the places, stories and documented photographs that were shared (which I believe is their main selling point) and in the way it was presented. Though the price is a little steep (at $35/adult), I would say it is worth the value for the unique experience it brings.
