For starters, families can sign up for unique virtual tours by Tribe, such as the ‘Curry Puff Factory Virtual Tour’, where participants can learn the process of making curry puffs from scratch. During the ‘Traditional Bread Factory Virtual Tour’, participants get to visit one of the oldest remaining traditional bakeries left in Singapore virtually.

As part of the experiential journey, familiar local treats will be delivered to participants as accompaniment when they embark on these interactive virtual tours.

In addition, SHS also partnered with Prima Taste and Furama Riverfront to offer unique ‘pop-up’ courses. These include families coming together virtually to prepare the local Chicken Rice dish via online course with Prima Taste. Alternatively, families can choose to participate in an exclusive back-of-house visit presented online by Furama Riverfront Hotel to understand the operations of the hotel and the tour ends with families learning to concoct a unique Christmas drink.
