One of the joys of Singapore is eating out, especially at the small local markets and eateries. One of the best is Telok Ayer, located in the heart of the financial district in a lovely renovated Victorian Octangular building. The food range is wonderful at a fraction of the cost of western type eateries. Why pay 4-5 SGD for a... More

This hexagonal Hooker Market is amazing. A world of fast food, under cover. I paid £3.50 for Thai dishes cooked in front of me, and the nice Tiger Beer ladies supplied the drinks. An amazing night out for just over £10 in the center of Singapore!

An interesting, varied Street not far from Chinatown. A number of eating options and bars. Worth a visit.

I like visiting Telok Ayer street at lunchtime to escape the crowds in Raffles Place or around the MBFC. The restaurants and cafes are pretty average on the whole, but the old shophouses are attractive and it's good to get away from the tall buildings of the CBD proper for a bit.

This is a nice area to walk around and has a nice rest / park area called 'Telok Ayer Green' where there are some nice sculptures and history boards for the area, water features, and some park benches to sit and rest on. A nice mix of old colonial and modern buildings gives it a good feel and makes for... More

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.
