Tour Details

An art walk through Chinatown.

Yip Yew Chong‘s murals are highlights of many tours through Singapore. They are colorful and extremely Instagram-able, yet at the same time they tell a segment of the Singapore story from a more innocent time. The older ones among us might notice familiar scenes and nostalgic items painted into the walls. On this walk, we want to tell you about the stories that inspire this murals, and share with you Easter Eggs and little secrets that we have discovered over the years.

Join us as we go for a walk through time, using the murals as a gorgeous visual reference to share with you what it was like growing up in retro Chinatown

What to Expect

Yip Yew Chong is a Singapore artist that grew up in Chinatown. His art is inspired by his childhood memories and tell the stories of a more innocent time. The art is intricately detailed, and we love how we discover new things with every viewing. His most visible pieces are the murals that can be seen in many of our ethnic districts. We feel that the Chinatown ones come from a place of love.

Join us as we go for a walk down memory lane. On this tour, you will get to:

  • Hear the stories behind the art
  • Ham it up at some gorgeous Instagram spots
