PS is a fantastic guide who is incredibly knowledgeable and funny. She brought us around her neighborhood which has Gen 1-3 public housing. We only had 2 days in Singapore and wanted to see the local side of the city, beyond Crazy Rich Asians. Highly recommend this tour for those who are curious about the social fabric of Singapore and its unique approach to public housing which underpins society. - 25 May 2024
