Guests staying at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel in Singapore this December are invited to see real Singaporean life with the hotel’s Live Like A Local programme. This complimentary half-day tour takes guests on a guided walking tour of the neighbourhood to delve into the fascinating mix of traditional and contemporary elements.
Visit the wet market and thriving hawker stalls at Tiong Bahru Market to order a local breakfast, like chwee kueh, min jiang kueh and youtiao, as well as coffee with a raw egg for the more adventurous. Another culinary treat is a visit to family-run Galicier Pastry which bakes and serves traditional pastries. After filling up on Singaporean street food, try divination in Qi Tian Gong temple and take selfies by the hand-painted wall murals in Seng Poh Garden. In the coming months, guests are also invited to learn How to Cook like a Master Chef and How to be a Tai Chi Master.
