Full description
Chinatown has also come a long way since the early days when Chinese immigrants made this enclave their home. Filled with a sprawling myriad of shops and eateries, bustling with colourful and exciting activities set against a backdrop of rich history and heritage, Chinatown is not to be missed especially in the evening when everything really comes alive. At a Chinese Medical Hall, learn how Traditional Chinese Medicine helps to regulate your Yin and Yang. From ancient days till modern times, the Chinese have continue with herbs and practices like acupuncture, moxibustion, tai chi and tui na to stay healthy. After dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, wander along the narrow lanes of the Night Market and test your bargaining skills against street vendors selling anything from souvenirs to leather goods.  The highlight of the evening is a trishaw ride that takes you through the alleyways of Chinatown and down to Clarke Quay. There hop onto a bumboat for a cruise along the Singapore River to see Singapore lit up at night, showcasing beautifully restored shop houses, modern skyscrapers of the financial district, colonial buildings and the iconic Merlion statue.

Karen the tour guide was excellent in her presentation of what was on the nights agenda. Food was hot and generous at the Chinese restaurant. Loved the trishaw ride through the many ethnic streets ( except for the tailgating by my driver ). The bumboat ride along the river was very relaxing. Lovely to see the city and cafes along the river all lit up. Excellent tour, would recommend it to others.

Our guide Christopher was a barrel of laughs. Best entertainment all night. Short talk on Traditional Chinese Medicine before dinner and after dinner we were given some time to explore Chinatown on our own . We all met up for our trishaw ride to the quay where we went on a bumboat ride. After the cruise we were given the option to make our own way back and some the driver gladly drove back to their hotel. All in all a very pleasant evening.

The Trishaw ride and Bumboat cruise were the highlight of this cruise. The Chinatown market was ok but the chinese meal was disappointing. I thought we would be taught something about chinese medicine but we were just taken to the shop where it was sold and had to figure it out for ourselves. In spite of this the tour guide did the best she could with 27 people to keep track of.
