CHINATOWN “LIVE” VIRTUAL TOUR “TALES OF OUR FOREFATHERS”

Description of Programme

“Live” Virtual Tour “Live” Virtual Tours are suitable alternatives to outdoor NE tours. Participants will join in via a video platform and a “live” video stream will be established with the guide on-site. Follow the guide around various places of interest, hear their stories, and interact via a live chat box. Be engaged in online games (e.g. Bingo, spot the difference, etc) to increase engagement and have fun while learning. “Tales of our Forefather” The history of Chinatown is fascinating, even more so when told through a time traveller from 1890. Meet “Ah Gu”, a Chinese coolie who arrived in Singapore and made a life here. Through him, be immersed in the journey of the early Chinese immigrants. Hear their struggles, their hopes and their fears, and what it took to survive the harsh realities of 19th Century Chinatown. Gain a deeper understanding of the development of Singapore as we share the stories of our forefathers. Sites to Cover - - Thian Hock Keng Temple (Religious customs) - - Amoy Street Wall Mural (Immigrant Journey) - - Street of Harmony (Racial Harmony) - - Chinatown Heritage Centre (Harsh Conditions) - - Lai Chun Yuen Opera House (Social Cohesion)
