What to expect

The year is 1910. A coolie has just arrived in Singapore after a week-long journey from Guangdong province, in a crowded Chinese junk boat. From Singapore River, he offered prayers and gratitude at a nearby temple, and proceed to find jobs, sought accommodation and eventually settled down in a new country – Singapore. This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first-time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Following the life journey of our coolie, we will bring out stories of early immigrants and the progression of Singapore while capturing insta-worthy shots along the way. Join us in discovering Singapore in a novel and fun way together with the friendly influencers. Indulge in a cold draft beer before bidding goodbye.
