This event is for Members only.

Trace the beginning of one of Singapore's original dish, Hainanese Chicken Rice. Hainan is a tropical island located south of the Guangdong province, China. When the Hainanese immigrants came to Singapore, they settled in the Beach Road area forging a strong community spirit. The streets were subsequently named after them: First, Second and Third Street of the Hainanese.

Visit the temple dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea established by the Hainan Clan Association and learn about its importance within the community. Stroll along Purvis Street and learn more about other flavourful Hainanese dishes while appreciating the ornate designs of old shophouses.

The walking tour would be followed by a tour of Singapore's latest two boutique hotels - Klapsons and Nostalgia.
