The original hipster enclave in Singapore!
The distinctive architecture of the district houses old school patisseries beside french bakeries, old dressmakers alongside chic indie boutiques. There is also so much history in the area. Starting from the houses built during the colonial era to the fires that used to ravage the area to the gentrified neighbourhood it is today, we think that Tiong Bahru today contains snapshots of Singapore through our various phases of development.
Curated in partnership with Furama Hotel Riverfront, guests will also get to try an exclusive creation by the wonderful culinary team of Furama Riverfront.
The lastest of the “Tales from our Backyard” series that is targeted at letting Singaporeans rediscover the rich cultural heritage we have on our little island.

See the Art, Meet the Artist!
Singaporean artist, Yip Yew Chong is easily one of the most prolific mural painters in Singapore right now. His art pieces are easily recognizable, and can be found in many of our most recognizable districts.
Join us, as we walk through Chinatown to find some of the secret stories and Easter eggs hidden behind the murals. Have a chance to share a light refreshment with the artist at the end of the walk!
With narrow corridors and maze-y passageways, it is easy to get lost in the charming suburban district of Blair Plain. Join us for a walk through this tranquil district where we will bring you to our favourite chill out areas, some gorgeous Instagram spots and also an art gallery with hidden depths.
