Decided to attend this church Decided to attend for it's traditional English service. Found the church to be very striking in it's overwhelming white exterior. People are very friendly but not out to trap you as some church parishioners seem to do. Interior is again strikingly beautiful in a western way. Tall black ceiling, white trim, blue walls contrast with... More

The cathedral seems to be peaceful place indeed, but this church is really nothing special, won't miss much if you don't pay a visit to the church.

Unlike some religious houses in Singapore this is clearly a working church not just a tourist destination. However, it is still possible to sit and contemplate the beauty and grandeur of the space while worshipers come and go and not feel you are intruding. Very peaceful.

St Andrew's Cathedral is the biggest in Singapore and situated right next to City Hall MRT. I took a wonderful stroll there after my visit to the Merlion Statue. The Cathedral is simply beautiful! I was lucky to arrive on Sunday near the end of a service so I had the Church choir as my background soundtrack whilst surveying the... More

This church is right next to City Hall MRT. It's a great photo spot, especially popular for wedding photography. You can visit inside the chapel during certain hours in the morning. It's good chance to take pictures inside the church. Besides that there is nothing much. There is a visitor centre when you can get free drinks and some information... More

St Andrew's Cathedral is Singapore's biggest Cathedral. It is big and in a big open space in the heart of the city but Singapore has many other smaller but prettier churches and cathedrals. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's not nice, just not as nice as some of the others. The cathedral was originally built in the 1840s,... More
