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.

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!

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.
