Singapore's Bugis neighbourhood
is full of interesting gems to uncover - including plenty of Instagrammable spots and gorgeous street art
! The Kampong Gelam
area, which encompasses the streets surrounding the iconic Masjid Sultan and Malay Heritage Centre, is particularly full of stunning murals. If you've ever wanted to learn more about the art and culture behind this vibrant area and even participate in some street art spray painting of your own, this private tour by Culture Curious
is just what you need!
Culture Curious's Kampong Glam: Street Art Tour & Workshop
is a private session that combines an educational tour of the area with a hands-on spray painting workshop
. There aren't a lot of places in Singapore where you can freely graffiti to your heart's desire, so this tour is definitely a unique experience and chance to pick up a new skill! ?
The tour includes landmarks in the Bugis area
such as Parkview Square (better known as the 'Gotham building'
!), Haji Lane, Arab Street, and Masjid Sultan. After you've learned about the history and background of the area, you'll get to experience a workshop led by professional graffiti artists
and even spray paint some walls for yourself (and yes, it's all done legally ?).
If you're planning on doing some shopping at Haji Lane, Bugis Street, or Bugis Junction once the tour is over, this shopping guide to Bugis
is what you need!
The price includes the art and cultural tour itself, all workshop materials such as paint and safety equipment, and even a tote bag that you can take home as a souvenir. Since it's a private tour, it's a great idea for a special day out with your closest friends or family. Or even a unique anniversary, birthday, or pre-wedding celebration! You can even get 20% off the usual pricing if you form a group of at least 3 friends to take the tour together.
Time to make your mark on SG's very own street art scene! ?
