Tour description provided by Viator

On this award winning tour, visit the ancient burial grounds where the forgotten Tombs of the Malayan Princes rest. Highlights on this walk include the Sultan Mosque, an antique store, understanding traditional Indonesian medicine and Arabic goods, the Old Royal Palace and Tombs.

How was Singapore sold to the British for 60,000 Spanish Dollars? Find out about the man who did it, and the man who forced him to. No one remembers the sultans that used to rule, except the guides on this tour. The old Royal Palace, the Sultan Mosque, the Tombs of the Malayan Princes: they all carry an air of royalty snatched away too quickly. Uncover a curious blend of Malay folk traditions and Islam in the legends of the mysterious 'keris' (dagger), exotic perfumes, 'jamu' remedies to every conceivable ailment and the story of the faith that is so often misunderstood. Don't miss this hidden cultural enclave where Singapore's indigenous culture still thrives.

Join the guides who are experts in Singapore's rich heritage and colorful history. Highlights on this walk include the Sultan Mosque, an antique store, understanding traditional Indonesian medicine and Arabic goods, the Old Royal Palace and Tombs.
