The Hidden Charms of Tiong Bahru
: 3.5 hours
The Pinnacle @ Duxton takes the title of being the world’s tallest public housing project. Enjoy stunning view of the Singapore landscape from the 50th storey sky bridge.
Next is a visit to Tiong Bahru,
one of Singapore’s oldest public housing estate built in the 1920s that has creatively evolved into a unique neighbourhood that balances heritage and swanky hipster lifestyle. The Tiong Bahru Market
, built in 1955, may be the first modern market to be built in a housing estate but still boasts some of the best hawker stalls for local culinary delights. The 90-year-old Qi Tian Gong Temple, Singapore’s oldest temple honours the Monkey God, who bestows blessing and protection.
Visit a bakery
where time stands still. With a history spanning four generations, Galicier Pastry is steeped in family tradition using only the freshest ingredients, bought daily, to create Galicier’s traditional nyonya kuehs and retro cakes.
The design and décor of Nostalgia Hotel
are inspired by Singapore’s colonial years as well as the romantic history of the neighbourhood. After all, Tiong Bahru was once known as an area where the well-heeled kept their mistresses. It’s the old world charm with a dash of modernism.
