Come to the meeting point, then follow your guide around Chinatown in Singapore. Next, stop at CapitaSpring to take photos at this skyscraper that is 920 ft (280 meters) tall. After this, head to Yueh Hai Ching Temple in Raffles Place, which was designated a national monument of Singapore. Continue to Pekin Street and stroll along this pedestrianized street. Following this, arrive at Fuk Tak Chi Museum, a former Taoist shrine that has since been restored and is now part of a boutique hotel. Go to Thian Hock Keng, a waterfront temple that was built around 1821. Admire the architecture of this temple which was constructed to worship the Chinese sea goddess Mazu. Head to Ann Siang Hill, stop for photos at the Chinese Weekly Entertainment Club, then visit Goh Loo Club, a restored shophouse. Pass by Mohamed Ali Lane along the way to a restaurant. Afterward, eat lunch at Chiew Kee Noodle House, one of the oldest restaurants in Singapore, which is also famous for its soy sauce chicken. After lunch, see Yue Hwa Chinese Products, The Majestic, and Lim Chee Guan New Bridge Road store. Take some photos if you want. Shop for tea at Pek Sin Choon, a tea merchant with over 100 years of history. Buy some traditional Cantonese pastries at Tai Thong Cake Shop too. Walk to Lau Choy Seng Pte Ltd, stroll along Smith Street, then arrive at Sago Lane, which gets its name from the sago factories that used to be there. Finally, end the tour at Fong Moon Kee, a shop that has sold traditional cold ailments since the 1900s. Make your own way back to your accommodation.
