11am: Go on the Signature Tea Tour

Immerse yourself in Peranakan (Straits-born people of Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage) tradition at The Intan. A gem of a heritage house, The Intan (which aptly means “diamond” in Malay) is nestled in the culturally rich enclave of Joo Chiat. Get a taste of authentic Peranakan flavour when you sign yourself up for a tea and tour with The Intan Tea Tour. Be showed around the carefully curated and conserved antique Peranakan house and marvel at the multitude of vibrant relics like shoes, accessories, tiles and ceramics. Then, tuck into an array of Peranakan dishes, homemade kueh (bite-sized snacks or desserts) and teas. The tea tours can take place at any time of day, and are S$60 per person for a group of four.

Book your tea tour here.

Trace your steps back to Eunos MRT and take the train to City Hall MRT. Walk about six minutes down St. Andrew’s Road to National Gallery Singapore, and head inside to find your lunch spot, Odette.

1pm: Have lunch at Odette

Treat yourself to a two-Michelin-starred lunch at Odette, chef Julien Royer’s elegant restaurant located in the iconic National Gallery Singapore. Odette serves up modern French cuisine with Royer’s artisanal touch, presenting diners with an array of tantalising flavours. There are only set menus available for both lunch and dinner—the number of courses vary depending on the day—but either way, you’ll want to make a reservation at least one month in advance.

Step right outside the restaurant and spend the afternoon sightseeing at National Gallery Singapore.

The Gallery itself is a work of art, with stunning sun-lit hallways, high ceilings, and intricate architectural details. Pro tip: the sun-lit hallways are the perfect backdrop for an #OOTD Instagram shot or two.
