Despite spending our weekends in Bugis, not many of us know the rich history surrounding its many heritage streets and buildings. It’s home to beautifully-conserved shophouses and indoor shopping streets, but much of Bugis Town still remains a mystery to us. From finding out more about the origin of local street signs to trying old-school snacks, here’s what we’ll be up to with the Heritage Hunt @ Bugis Street.
It’s been a while since our last exploratory journey around Singapore – the pandemic wasn’t kind when it came to exploring the hidden nooks and crannies of our local neighbourhoods. But now, with things opening up, take the chance to join a Heritage Hunt that brings us around the iconic sites and food haunts of Bugis Junction and Bugis Street.
With its galore of shopping malls and alleyway stores, Bugis Town is undeniably one of our favourite stomping grounds. Now, through the lens of a weekend scavenger hunt, you can see this bustling precinct in a different light. The Heritage Hunt @ Bugis Street is a 1 hour 15 minute tour that’s happening every Saturday in the month of May, and you’ll also be solving riddles and puzzles along the way.
