Nice tour with knowledgeable tourguide! A nice overview of the role of Eurasians (Portugese, British and Dutch roots) in Singapores' history.

My dad experienced WW2 as a Eurasian and this brought back a number of memories both good and bad. If you are at all connected to Eurasians who went through this - it is well worth the visit.
