Unique tour of heartland Singapore
, Jul 2019
This tour through Toa Payoh and the HBD headquarters with our amazingly knowledgeable guide Shal was incredible! It is an extraordinary insight into the daily lives of Singaporeans living in the heartland. We were especially fascinated with the history and the role of the HBD. Visiting the show home in the HBD headquarters and seeing the model of the new car-lite community to be built out west were highlights of this tour, as was the visit to the local market. Sharl answered our incessant questions with enthusiasm. Shal as a guide, and this tour is very highly recommended!

Nice introduction into the daily life of Singaporeans. Since this is the first planned town there is a lot of recent history to discover and you get to see the different housing styles over the years. In addition, Shal also took us through the local market and hawker center and taught us how to order some Kopi-O. She is very knowledgable and most of the tour is actually airconditinoned, which is a nice change compared to the other walking tours in Singapore. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the real Singapore.
