The new Kampong G(e)lamping @ MHC programme will allow you to wake up in the lovely grounds of the Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) situated in the heart of Kampong Gelam.
Date: 15 - 24 Dec 2020 (Booking starts 23 Oct 2020)

The Malay Heritage Centre is opening up its compound and inviting the public to experience glamping with a cultural twist, with a fun-filled itinerary across two days.
From 15 to 24 December 2020, a group of up to five can book a 2D1N experience which includes a never-before opportunity to spend a night under the stars on MHC’s beautiful lawn.
A Night Under The Stars
Two cosy tents will be set up – one furnished with two queen-sized beds as well as a hammock for a quality sleeping experience, and the other for a night-time cinematic experience with a projector screen, speaker and bean bags. Both tents will be equipped with a portable aircon and fan, fresh linens and quilt for extra comfort, and decorative lights for an extra festive feel!
Over the 2 days 1 night, families can also experience a guided tour of the Kampung Glam precinct, which include the conic murals of Haji Lane, visiting local bakers and tea-makers, and discovering the stories of other landmarks in the area. Not forgetting a guided tour of the MHC's galleries too!
Families may start each morning with morning yoga stretches and end the night with a indulgent Malay dinner prepared in an outdoor set-up in front of everyone’s eyes by personal chef and culinary instructor Ruqxana Vasanwala.
There are only 9 slots available, 1 per day. Each slot is priced at $450 and can accommodate up to 5 people.
