Me and 3 of my colleagues attended the tea appreciation course. Honestly, I did not expect much as I could not see much fun in the tea. Well... I was terribly wrong.

My daughter and I visited the Teahouse and participated in the 2 hour workshop conducted by Charlene. It really was a wonderful 2 hours the highlight of the trip. We learnt so much about tea and enjoyed the food provided. The Teahouse also sells some lovely products . It is a must do when visiting Singapore.

The tea workshop was wonderful and was also very informative. Charlene let us have a go at making the tea ourselves, which convinced us to buy our own set. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Our workshop was very educational, we learned a lot about tea. The presentation Charlene gave us was very informative. The lunch was great and the shopping and selection of tea's and cups available was extraordinary. I would absolutely recommend this venue for your trip to Singapore

We had a great introduction about the history and types of tea. We then tasted the different types and had a lovely meal with friends. Excellent tea experience in Singapore!

My boyfriend and I had a very inspiring and interesting tea talk and tea lesson with Mr Vincent Low. Amongst many things, we learned about the four different tea types, and how to distinguish fresh and old tea. Mr Vincent really took the time, and was very passionate about the story of tea. If you love tea, this is a... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
