When you think of Tiong Bahru, do you only think about the cafes and photogenic art deco buildings in the neighbourhood?
Tiong Bahru’s old world charm has earned its title of ‘Singapore’s hippest hood’ by CNN and one of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods by Vogue. If you have a fondness for heritage trails and picturesque settings, join the Explore Our Neighbourhoods! Tour by Jane’s Singapore Tours.
On the tour, you can discover the differences between the pre-war and post-war architecture and enjoy interesting stories about the people of Tiong Bahru, ranging from pioneer community leaders to residents who were born in the air raid shelter during World War II.
As one of Singapore’s oldest public residential estates, the neighbourhood is home to many landmarks that date back to the 1930s. The most prominent would be the first Monkey God Temple dedicated to the main character from the Chinese literary classic, Journey to the West.
