One of my favourite places in Singapore so far would have to be Tiong Bahru, an old suburb that has had a bit of a revival in the last few years making it a quaint and trendy place to be. Built in the 1930’s, the Tiong Bahru housing estate is one of the oldest in Singapore, and has a distinctive art deco feel to it with it’s low-rise complexes, rounded balconies, and funky facades. I love it! It’s like stepping back in time.. art deco is totally not what I would have expected to see in Singapore :)
Because Tiong Bahru has become quite trendy, there are also now a lot of very cute cafes, restaurants, and shops springing up. No complaints here!
