Trails of Tan Ah Huat - Exploring The 1920s of Singapore On 2-Wheels

[Sponsored Review]



How was life in Singapore in the 1920s?
How did various cultures and races live together and communicate?
How did Singapore develop into what it is today?
How was the life of a commoner like Tan Ah Huat be like in the 1920s?



I'm excited to be invited to the Trails of Tan Ah Huat operated by Let's Go Tour Singapore. In this fictional character, we got to tread the paths of Tan Ah Huat (an early immigrant of Singapore who came here in the hope of seeking a better living), engage in his daily life activities, and learn about the history of Singapore at the same time. 

The tour is carried in bikes, but one may also top-up to an e-scooter. It is guided by knowledgeable licensed tour guides who are passionate about Singapore history.



We started the tour from 462 Crawford Lane #01-57, the office of Let's Go Tour Singapore and cycled all the way to Kampong Glam, Raffles Hotel, Esplanade, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and final stop, Chinatown. Along the way, we had pitstops for water breaks, video clips narration and sharing from our guide.

We also stopped by some shops which have been in business since the 1900s like Pek Sin Choon for tea and Nanyang Old Coffee for coffee and toast.


Pek Sin Choon, until this day, is still selling tea leaves in its original style of packaging 

Come, let's have a toast! 



Really love the old school decor of Old Nanyang Coffee


Along with the storyline, we get to have a glimpse of the history behind characters like Muhamad Zulfri (Malay fisherman), Mr. Singh (the famous doorman of Raffles Hotel) and Lim Mei Hua. Through this storytelling approach, the history of Singapore becomes vivid and alive. If only schools teach Singapore history this way, students would have no problem memorising facts and figures.




The tour duration is 4 hours and is priced at $99 per adult. Children under 10 enjoy a 10% discount. The tour price includes the use of bicycle, helmet, bottled water and raincoat (if needed). All the food and beverages consumed at the designated stops are inclusive as well. I had an enjoyable time understanding more about Singapore. Let's Go Tour Singapore organises more than just Trails of Tan Ah Huat, the company also has:
