Gin & Tonic Pairing Masterclass

10 reviews
Learn the fascinating history behind the classic gin and tonic cocktail in this masterclass. The drink originated in colonial Malaya as a way of fending off malaria, but today it’ll definitely refresh you after a hot day sightseeing. The workshop will be held at a classy Singapore bar. You’ll get the chance to try several types of gin and tonic water, choose your favorite, then create your own unique cocktail.

I would recommend this place for tourists who like to be off the track and explore unique places, interested in knowing about Singapore's history as this place has some famous people, but of course do book a walking tour so that you won't get lost and the guides will explain the history of the tombs and place.

My second time joining a day time walking tour of Bukit Brown. The guides were armed with a wealth of knowledge, and the tales of the different residents and their colourful lives was definitely the high point of the walk for me. Would recommend it to everyone to start discovering more about singapores history. Looking forward to going again, hopefully for the CRA tour :)

I did the walk on Sunday evening with some rain and my volunteer guide was Darren. I had a long day and initially, found him giving too much details and time at each grave. But as we progressed, I settled into the pace, peaceful surroundings, conjured imageries according to his telling and connected with great people from the past. I appreciate that he paid tribute to the buried bibik and womenfolk, and us in the group on International Women's day. It was a nice touch! At the end, I was blown away how it climax at the personal story of Mr. Lee. Now, I will never pass Tan Kheam Hock road feeling the same way again and recommend this to all because the sooner you discover this the better; who knows how long we are able to walk amongst them.

An excellent Sunday morning outing to a real hidden gem, a stunning historical graveyard with an amazingly rich cultural heritage. Besides learning about the complexities of burial rituals among the Hokkien and Teochew, there are wonderful stories of individual people who lived in Singapore during the early years. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would certainly do it again. It certainly should be a must do for any culture-vulture. Finding the place can be a bit hard the first time, but its well worth the effort.
