Какво ще правите

Explore the thoroughfares of the town centre with me to see how the heartlanders socialise and lead their everyday lives. As I am native to the estate, you will benefit from my explanations and perspective of the sights and sounds you will witness.

Enjoy a sampling of local food and beverage at a kopitiam, the traditional coffee shop for Singaporeans. I will introduce you dishes that are unique to the Singaporean tastebud, and order them from the friendly hawkers - something which visitors may find it difficult to do on their own. Get yourself immersed in this experience with a local, like a local!

Lastly, do you know that more than 80% of Singapore's population live in public housing? Follow me and learn about the country's public housing history and policies at the gallery of the HDB Hub, the headquarters of the public housing authority.

I grew up in the quintessential heartland of Singapore - Toa Payoh. I still live in this estate. As a proud Toa Payoh native, it never fails to excite me to introduce my hometown to visitors from everywhere in the world, for them to witness how the locals work, live, and play. I am a licensed tourist guide and a member of the Singapore Heritage Society.

Къде ще бъдете

We will meet at the passenger service counter of Toa Payoh MRT before exploring the shopping and eating thoroughfares of the town centre. We will then have a sampling of the food that locals eat at a kopitiam, and end the tour with an informative and visual learning experience at the gallery of the HDB Hub. This is a 60% outdoor / 40% indoor walking tour, and be prepared to be on your feet most of the time except when eating at the kopitiam.

Paul was a wonderful guide. We visited several high rises and learned a lot about housing developments in Singapore. Paul showed us how the architecture of the buildings have evolved over time. I also really liked hearing about the various progressive policies the government has in place to prevent racial/ethnic and wealth divide in the developments. I highly recommend. You get to see a side of Singapore that is very different from the tourist areas.

Amazing experience that could not be done on your own. This experience allows you to witness the real Singapore that goes beyond the western influence and bright lights.

Honestly, I’m very glad that I went on this tour with Paul / I travel often and it’s always great to learn from locals about their lives and how their society functions. You’ll spend two hours with a look into how the majority of Singaporeans live, and have a great host to walk you through all the intricacies. Thank you again, Vlad.

As an architect and urban planner I can highly recommend this experience. It gave me a in depth understanding of the structure of Singapore's public housing system and also let me dive into the every day life in the oldest public housing district. Paul was wonderful in combining the facts with a personal experience of every day life Toa Payoh. I can recommend it to everyone who wants to understand Singapore beyond the shiny tourist attractions. Great thanks to Paul!!!
