Singapore Footprints's free guided walks will allow participants to marvel at the modern developments around Marina Bay and venture off the beaten track on a cultural trail to appreciate how the different races and religious communities co-exist harmoniously in our multi-racial society. We call ourselves the "Walkaholics", a group of passionate students from Nanyang Technological University, committed to running these volunteer walks through our city, every weekend, rain or shine! Every Saturday and Sunday, 4:15pm, Raffles Place MRT Exit B, come on down and walk with us!

Every Saturday morning Singapore Footprints organizes a free tour through the history Chinatown. We were only two participants (probably due to the pouring rain untill two minutes before the start of the tour) so we had no problem to pay attention to the well experienced guide. Even though I had been several times in Chinatown I learned alot about the... More

Apologies because this review is 2 years late! But, I'd promised myself that amongst the first things I would do after joining here was to review them. Two years ago, I went on one of their walking tours on the day before I was scheduled to leave Singapore after a month there, and it honestly did feel like the best... More

Sabrina, Jerome and Christina were incredible throughout the whole tour, always educating the group on how Singapore became what it is today. I don't want to spoil their speeches so i won't tell you what they say but it was very informative! It was their first time giving the tour and they exceeded my expectations. They took their time explaining... More

We went on this free walking tour which leaves from Raffles Place. The 3 guides were quite good, although sometimes it was hard to hear them because of the size of the group. We got taken around a good portion of Singapore in a bit over 2.5 hours from the Fullerton Hotel to Bra Bahas where we had a better... More

If you enjoy walking then this is an ideal way to see many sites and get the history behind them -from youngsters proud of their city and keen to show it off as well as learn about your city and learn the language. It did feel like we were on a school trip with a teacher at front one in... More

Lovely group of four students gave us a knowledgeable and interesting perspective on this modern city. Can be hard to find things to do on the cheap here, but this is definitely one of them!

We can highly recommend Singapore Footprints. We joined a 3h walking tour on Sunday and got a lot of insights about the city, its history and the different cultures. The tour starts at 4:30 pm at the MRT Station Raffles Place (Exit B) and covers the Bay area, the Governmental area and ends near MRT station Burgis.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
