The Civic District: Hear stories about Singapore's past on an audio tour

By VoiceMap Audio Tours
About
What do a 'lion-fish,' World War Two and Chinese immigrants have in common? For starters, all three are featured in my Civic District self-guided audio tour. And, all of the above play a role in Singapore's modern history. If you wish to hear stories about Singapore's past come alive, like the mythical Sea Lion and its links to the Lion City then this is the trail for you. The walk takes you through parts of Singapore's colonial heritage – including visiting some historical personalities - and ends at a point where modern and colonial Singapore intersect seamlessly.

    Fun and informative
    I really enjoyed the tour. The only problem for me was the beginning.. meeting outside a station with multiple exits, under a sign that no longer exists. I tried them all before getting the right one ( Google maps is pretty useless with the underground tunnels in Singapore). When I finally found the starting point, everything became easy and thoroughly enjoyable. I went early morning, before the crowds which I recommend. I already had spent time in Kampong Glam but there was plenty of street art I discovered through this tour, as well as some of the background stories .
