Dear Members & Friends,
Join us for a Chinese New Year guided tour with Charlotte Chu.
Chinatown is always fascinating and even more bustling and vivid during the Chinese New Year¬†celebrations. Hear about the customs, taboos and traditions of this exciting and colourful holiday. As we¬†wander through the streets of Chinatown, learn about the history, enjoy the lights and atmosphere at this¬†time of year. We will drop by a bakery that makes traditional Chinese cakes, meet sellers of incense and¬†paper money, visit a clan house and a temple with a storied history. See beautiful Pussy Willows, cheery¬†Chrysanthemums, Kumquats, colourful decorations; and at the end of the tour, you can take the¬†opportunity to do shopping.
Meeting point: At the pergola in front of Block 3 and behind the bus stop, junction of Neil and Everton¬†Roads. Note: Parking is available at the start of this tour but as we will finish at different point, you are¬†advised to use taxis or public transport to the meeting point. The nearest MRT is Outram Park.
