Join us as we usher in the Year of the Pig!  On this walking tour our guide Diana will explain the Chinese calendar, customs and taboos of this exciting festival. We shall stroll through the quaint streets to learn the traditions of people past and present. We will see a bakery making special New Year Cakes, shops with ritual papers and incense offered to the gods for prosperity, and a street bazaar selling festive goods. The tour also includes visits to a Chinese Temple and a Clan Association, both integral part of the new year celebration.  

We end the tour with dinner at a traditional restaurant located in the heart of Chinatown. Diana will tell you all about the do’s and don’ts of Chinese table etiquette.  Our menu includes dishes that have symbolic value of auspiciousness.  So if you’ve always wanted to learn all about the significance of tossing and eating the prosperity salad, locally known as ‘Lo Hei’ and the meaning of the dishes served at Chinese New Year meals, come join us for a toss and a bite! 

DRESS CODE: We will be visiting a temple, so please cover your knees and shoulders and since this is a walking tours, please wear comfortable shoes.   

Please Note: Food samples may contain pork, seafood, nuts or other allergens. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact localtours@awasingapore.org.
