Rabble Rousers, Rebels and Reformers

(Photo credit: Acrux Wana - Times of your life)

Travel through time with Fabian Tee and Lee Chyen Yee to hear the stories of our forefathers who went against the odds to make their mark in history. Some of these colourful characters include Neo Tiew - the founder of Lim Chu Kang, Tan Keong Saik – an advocate for the equality of women and Tay Koh Yat – bus-owner-turned-war-hero who resisted the Japanese during World War II.

Apart from learning about history and heritage of our country, the guided tour will also serve as a healthy weekend workout walking along the less trodden paths of Singapore.

(The tour will last from 9 am to 12 noon and the meeting place is Hill 2. Do not enter Lorong Halwa. Please see map below for meeting point.)
