Inside the Chinese Singaporean – The Evolution of our Culture and Heritage Virtual Tour

The Chinese Singaporean identity today is a result of generations of intercultural influences. Through a walking trail of buildings, arts and food, we will bring you on a journey of discovery, to find out the level of ‘Chinese-ness’ Singaporean Chinese are.

Co-organised by Singapore Chinese Culture Centre and Tribe Tours, the tour will start off with the SINGAPO人 permanent exhibition which sets the context of the tour, we continue exploring the themes of the exhibition zones by embarking on a walking trail to Telok Ayer – the backbone of development of the Chinese migrant community in early Singapore.

Through the livestream, learn concepts such as:

  • What Makes Us, “Us” – Besides being shaped by our roots, culture and origins, buildings also tell a story. Behind the skyscrapers, conserved buildings, sculptures and green spaces is the story of how urban planners shape our Singapore image on the global stage.
  • Beyond Generations – What roles did clans play in shaping the Chinese Singaporean identity and how much of these remains for us?
  • When Cultures Meet – How did a Methodist church and mosque come to be in the heart of Telok Ayer? What role does a Chinese temple play in the past and present
  • Made in Singapore – Do you know that local favourite Hainanese Chicken Rice is a made in Singapore dish? Learn more about origins of Singapore food!
