See our City in Nature in a new light as you explore historical places in the Chinatown district amidst pockets of green. Led by a volunteer guide from the National Parks Board (NParks) Civic District team, your walk down memory lane begins at Telok Ayer Park. 

You will then make your way through rows of brightly coloured shophouses and arrive at the grand entrance of the Thian Hock Keng Temple. The scenery then changes as you take a stroll up the Ann Siang Hill and meander through Club Street. Throughout the tour, your guide will share with you fascinating facts about the tamarind, nutmeg, cinnamon and breadfruit trees that you’ll see along the way.
