Food-related activities are a central feature in Singapore's social and cultural landscape. A destination's culinary heritage can be a key cultural resource and attraction in tourism, contributing to its unique character, local identity and sense of place. Culinary tourism and food trails offer tourists the opportunity to get a taste of local heritage, culture, and vibrant flavors of life in local neighborhoods through eating and touring. This exploratory study investigates the application of a mobile-driven street food trail within the context of cultural and heritage tourism. Specifically, it explores research themes within the domains of (1) culinary tourism and food trails as tourism attractions, and (2) mobile-driven applications for culinary tourism. A street food trail mobile app developed for a Singaporean neighborhood is utilized in the study.
