What to expect

Mr. Lee Kuan Yew is known for being an unsurpassable politician and a globally respected elder statesman who has played a critical role in transforming resource-scarce Singapore into who we are today. While many know his accolades in the political realm, who was he when he was not in the limelight? In this story, we bring you on an untold journey about Mr. Lee - what was he like as a friend, a father, a brother, a son, and a husband? What was he like in school, as a teenager, as a young adult? What values did he live by?

We also visit Oxley Road, the Lees residence for 50 years. What was he like as a father to his children? What values did he want them to have? A visit to their humble home cannot go without mentioning his simple ways and lifestyle Next on the routing is Tanjong Pagar, the constituency Mr. Lee choose as his home base from 1955 and where he continued to serve his residents for nearly 60 years. If you are curious about his healthy ways, know that he loved his food and was fond of Peranakan favorites like mee siam and gado gado.

And to our final stop, we head to the Old Parliament House and end off in front of the steps at the National Gallery Singapore in front of the Padang.
