It was an interesting and immersive experience on a Saturday evening into the past of an area that has changed greatly. I recommend this to everyone, especially those with an interest into knowing more about this area's past.

Enjoyed the walk through Jalan Besar with a fully immersive audio guide. It's nice you also can take your time to explore fully. I just wish there was more history shared about the murals, streets, and other buildings around the areas we've walked past. Overall, a unique and novel concept!

This is one of the experience offered by the Oh! Stories group that lets the participant wander around precincts in Singapore with a guided storyline. We started off a little confused cos we were a little lost, but soon got the hang of it, crossing the roads and lanes around the Jalan Besar area. The area was not as crowded as it was pre-covid days, amd it's truly was a nice sight to see the area getting livelier with people going about their regular errands at the fruit stalls, tailors, jewellers or restaurants. If you're into a little adventure in one of the most unique local and cultural experience in Singapore you may wish to consider this self-exploration tour. You're totally allowed to wander off track, but you will be compelled to finish to the end.
