Understanding the history of Singapore Hokkiens through a Chinatown guided tour. Chinatown used to be an enclave for Chinese settlers in Singapore ever since the British colonized Singapore in 1819. Various “Chinese dialect groups” can be found settling across Chinatown, of which the Hokkiens were one of the main settlers in the region. Join our guided tour as we visit historical sites in Chinatown to understand the history of Singapore Hokkiens.
