If the 'place to be' is a walk away from the MRT station, please put signs up giving directions for tourists. It was a wasted journey for us as we couldn't find it.

I love the vibe of Tiong Bahru. It's the perfect blend of old and new. When I am in the mood for old school, I head to the hawker centre or a coffee shop. When I want to dodge the heat, I pop into a...More

One of Singapore's oldest conserved residential estate, with many of the old shop houses taken over by hip cafes, eateries and arty shops. No loud music or pubs here! This is a residential estate. Try out the bakery there. It's great tasting! Tiong Bahru has...More
