Singapore audio tour: Walk to Independence

About the Tour

Singapore is a young country but an old city. Beneath the tall skyscrapers and the shiny windows is a city that is almost 800 years old.

In the next hour, we will explore the story of Singapore from kingdom to republic. But this is not a history tour. This is an adventure into the heart of Singapore city.

All proceeds from this tour received by Zach will be donated to one of three local charities: Boys Town Singapore, Pertapis Children's Home and Canossaville Children's Home.

Tour Producer


Heartlander Tourist

When seeking to take a break from his work, The Heartlander Tourist walks around the city, and snaps images with his phone, trying to find images and stories worth telling as A Local Tourist, an idea he belives passionately in.

If we are bored by the place we live in, and if the humdrum of daily life gets us down, than can we be anything more than breathing robots? So break out of that existence of mundanity. Be a local tourist and see your city and your life, through a different lens!

Reinvigorating your daily life costs nothing.
