Singapour, Je t’aime!


Unknown to many, the French contributed towards the development of early colonial Singapore. They established the St. Joseph's Institution, Singapore's oldest Catholic boys' school; the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus Chapel, one of the few remaining cloistered convents in the world; and Caldwell House, a colonial bungalow. Appreciate Renaissance and Gothic architecture with accompanying accounts of French priests and nuns who once worked within these compounds. The tour will also introduce other fascinating French characters who made their mark on Singapore history.
