Eurasian Heritage Tour

Description
Where are the Eurasian enclaves in Singapore and what are their stories? Ever wondered what Katong was like 30 years ago? Do you know how Chapel Road got its name?

Come join us for a scenic 1.5 hour Eurasian Heritage walking tour around the historic Eurasian enclave of Katong and let guides Martha Fernandez and Maureen Westerhout regale you with Eurasian tales that have stood the test of time. The tour will end at the Eurasian Association on Ceylon Road, with a tour of the War Museum and insights of the Eurasian experience during World War II.

If you are interested to try Eurasian cuisine, grab a meal at Quentin's: The Eurasian Restaurant after the tour!
NOTE: Participants are expected to pay for their own dinner.
