Walking Tour

About the Tour

Take a walk around Marina Bay with Hossan Leong, the well-known local comedian and Singapore Boy.

You'll hear intimate anecdotes from throughout his career, from his high-school days at the Anglo-Chinese School, to his first one-man stand-up show at the Victoria Theatre, to his role as the MC on National Day, when he had to keep 15,000 people entertained at the Marina Bay Float. You'll also get to know some of Singapore's most popular cultural institutions, and of course you'll laugh all the way.

Hossan loves taking jabs at the establishment, and may occasionally aim a jab at you, dear listener. Just make sure you always double-confirm before crossing the road!

Best time of day

Any time is fine, but we recommend doing the walk after drinks at Boat Quay or before a show at one of the many performing arts venues in the Civic District.

Great storytelling! I really enjoyed the walk.
