After Hours @ My Jalan Besar with Jan Chow

About the programme

Jalan Besar leads an almost Jekyll and Hyde existence – in the day, it is populated by the hip and fashionable, and at night colourful characters and businesses reveal themselves. Walk into the nooks and crannies of the neighbourhood, snake around the back alleys and enter the ‘forbidden’ stairways with Jan and immerse yourself in the stories of this neighbourhood and the various communities that operate within!

Meet your guide, Jan!

Hello! I am Jan, tour guide and founder of oFFbeat Singapore! Working in Jalan Besar over the past few years has allowed me to observe the neighbourhood’s tremendous transformation in its profile of residents, visitors, workers and businesses. While the neighbourhood today is increasingly recognised as a go-to-destination to see and to be seen in, I want to show you its less visible side after hours and paint a picture of Jalan Besar that will surely tug at your heartstrings! See you then!
