Hidden Gems

Chinese Garden Little India Tiong Bahru

Not to be missed:

Spend an afternoon exploring one of Singapore’s unique ethnic quarters or after lunch at a tasty Peranakan restaurant.

Tiong Bahru

An old world paradise within this cosmopolitan bubble, the quaint art-deco streets of Tiong Bahru are packed with funky cafes, vintage boutiques and time-honoured food markets and are well worth a visit.

Little India

The buzzing ethnic district of Little India is packed full of vibrant culture and great shopping. Head to Tekka Market for a taste of authentic roti prata or unique souvenirs.

Little India

Dempsey Hill

Once occupied by a deserted British army barracks, this area has been totally transformed, offering chic restaurants, trendy bars, cool bistros and hip art galleries.

Chinese Garden

A piece of imperial China found within the west of Singapore. Admire the natural beauty of the Chinese and Japanese gardens, explore the floating wetlands and sevenstorey pagoda, or take part in a treasure hunt for a day of family fun.

Bras Basah Bugis Precinct

Known as the arts and heritage district within Singapore’s Civic Centre, the Bras Basah Bugis Precinct plays host to a selection of museums and monuments – plus the shopping market is great for local produce.

Joanne Cook, Senior Sales & Marketing Executive has spent many afternoons wandering between the shops and taking advantage of the ‘designer’ bargains. “It’s not as touristy as some of the other shopping areas and I love the local atmosphere.”

Pulau Ubin

Gravel roads, lush forests and abundant wildlife, Pulau Ubin is a living showcase of 1960s Singapore. The island may only be 10 minutes by ferry from Singapore, but it’s a world away from the shopping malls and glitzy hotels.

Night Safari

Night Safari

Explore the East and West Loop of Singapore after dusk from the comfort and safety of a tram; spotting nocturnal species in their natural habitat, from fierce predators to timid forest dwellers. Following the tram ride, your tour guide will lead you on a walking trail where you will be able to view some of the animals at closer quarters. It comes highly recommended by Sally Galenski, Faraway Reservations.

Haji Lane

Known to be the best shopping haunt in the Arab Quarter of the city, Haji Lane is filled with independent, multi-label boutiques and stores, each offering a trove of chic options to try.

Duxton Hill

By day Duxton Hill is a fine example of traditional shophouse architecture and a great place for a stroll. After dark, discover the variety of fine restaurants and lively bars.
