Singapore’s now has it’s own roving theatre experience tour!

July 5, 2018 Destination ASEAN No Comments Email Email

Aussie travellers can take part in an exciting new tour in the form of a roving theatre experience, called Chinatown Crossings, where they will journey back in time through the streets of Kreta Ayer*.

The promenade theatre traces the story of Kunalan, an Indian man who grew up in a Chinatown shophouse during the 1960s and 1970s, recounting his friendship with his Cantonese landlady’s feisty daughter, and his relationship with a ma jie** who became a surrogate mother to him during his growing up years.

Come experience the insides of a Chinatown shophouse; relive the echoes of living in old Singapore through a soundscape; and discover the many lost and forgotten practices, and art forms, of Chinatown’s vibrant community.

Tickets are now available for sale at

*Kreta Ayer is located in the centre of Chinatown, just behind the iconic Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

*Ma jie were a group of women who came to Singapore from Guangdong, China, in the early 20th century to be domestic helpers.
