For a walking tour with a difference, sign up for one of OH! Open House’s pop-up jaunts through Singapore’s historic neighbourhoods. While tours don’t run on a regular schedule (visit their website for the latest news and dates), a 2018 pop-up took visitors through Emerald Hill, where well-preserved Peranakan shophouses are now home to some of the city’s hottest bars and restaurants. What sets these tours apart is that they don’t just take you on a cursory walk-through, but also allow you to step inside residents’ homes to take in private performances and site-specific art installations. It’s the best way to gain unique insight into an area’s past, present and future.
