Went by Telok Ayer Street - the area has been nicely done up with lots of new eating houses, restaurants and pubs. Love the quiet charm coupled with the architecture reminiscent of olden Singapore, as it serves the moden city folk today. Headed out for drinks with friends nearby but swore to return and spend more time here

A relatively ordinary back street downtown. "A bit more character" than Shenton Way and similar roads.

Not really worth it. Best to spend time at Chinatown or at Perankan place if the interest is in old shophouses.

A lot of local delights. Many choices and stalls which still offer traditional delights.

Interesting area of old buildings that is worth walking around for local flavor. I found a guide map for tourists from the government that gave some detail about particular buildings.
