On this self-guided GPS walking tour, modern buildings shine alongside heritage sites as new and old Singapore come together. We'll cover lots of ground, venturing where the younger generations eat, play and study.

Beyond the monuments in front of your eyes are histories hidden in plain sight. You’ll dive into the lives of former communities, but also learn about the unique cultural context of Singapore today.

Together, we're going to uncover the incredible stories simmering beneath the surface of this island-city.

This is a one-of-a-kind tour for the curious traveller, especially because we're exploring areas in which tourists don't usually find themselves. Prepare for ghosts, naked buttocks, and convent schools to reveal themselves to you.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
