เป็นสถานที่ hipster ของสิงคโปร์คล้ายๆอารีบ้านเรา มีร้านอาหารคาเฟ่เก๋ๆ(แต่อร่อย)หลายร้าน มีร้านขายเสื้อผ้าและแฟชั่น handmade เท่ๆอยู่ การเดินทางถ้าไปโดย MRT จะเดินไกล ประมาณ 20นาที แนะนำให้ไปโดยรถเมล์ดีกว่า แนะนำให้ไปถ้าชอบดื่มกาแฟและทานขนมอร่อยๆ A hipster place in Singapore! Good cafes and restaurant around the estates. Pretty hard to get to if you take MRT, better go by bus.

Used to be all housing estate. Many elderly lived there. There's great coffee shops and just all the good food from the past. Now there's tall condos and HDB. Its turning into hipstervale. Cafes and bakery keep turning up in that are replacing the old good food

Tiong Bahru Estate houses the oldest HDB flats in Singapore but its vibe remains vibrant, appealing to all the young teenagers as well with the addition of 'hipster' cafes and bars over the past years. These modern cafes and bars there tied in with the Old HDB estates makes for an interesting twist. Flock Cafe was one of my personal... More

Fun to visit just for the restaurants and shops that are sprouting up in the neighborhood, Tiong Bahru is an impressive example of modern architecture and urban design developed by Singapore's housing authority in the 1930's. The town center is a sleek, interesting design with a large open-air market on the ground floor, hawker stalls and eating areas on the... More

This area contains the oldest HDB flats in Singapore but is now developing into one of the coolest areas in the city with an interesting variety of bars and restaurants. Worth getting off the MRT for a look around.

If you're looking for something beyond the usual hawker stalls and posh restaurants in the Marina Bay area, Tiong Bahru would be a great area to visit to check out quaint cafes and hip restaurants.

This place holds one of the hawkers' areas in SG! If you want to explore SG delicacies and other authentic dishes, you may visit this place for reasonably-priced food! Hygienic and safe for travelers and locals alike. Food hub, it is! :)

We come to Singapore few times a year and always look for something to see and do. We have finally visited this 1930's estate. It is an easy walk from MRT station Tiong Bahru. We followed the Heritage trail which has many points of interest and also helpful boards where you can learn about the history of this place. There... More

If you are the least bit interested in architecture and history, do explore this Art Deco area of Singapore. We stayed nearby at the Wangz Hotel, and a terrific booklet - Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail - was at the reception. We were entranced and fascinated by this area, and might have missed it had we not stayed nearby! You can... More

Staying in Tiong Bahru

Neighborhood Profile
Tiong Bahru
Home to both local families and transient expats, Tiong Bahru is a fascinating mix of tradition and youthful creativity. Its status as a conservation area ensures that this little hub has charm and heritage on display at every corner, while the 1930s art deco architecture provides a glimpse of days gone by. Stock up on fresh tropical fruits at the wet market, browse high quality literature and children’s books, shop for interesting gifts and local fashion, or munch on bargain-priced hawker food as the aroma of frying noodles and fresh-brewed coffee wafts through the air. Cap your day with a massage and a latte, a glass of wine, or a pain au chocolat from one of the many busy bakeries. An afternoon in this vibrant and beautiful neighborhood is not to be missed.
