I find the cathedral i visited rather plain, its not far from the cityhall MRT station. The whitewashed cathedral is at most average even by Asian standard and aren't particularly interesting site for those who wanted to explore Singapore It took me at most 10 minutes to explore the building, the stained glass or the Victorian furnishing didn't really help...

My cousin visited Singapore and that is one of her must visit list. Although it is just beside Cuty Hall MRT, I myself only be there may be 10 years ago. Great place to go even if you are not Christian. The cathedral is well maintain and there are still active workship happening there. There is a visitor information center... More

Relatively small compared to cathedrals in Europe. Try attending the Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve services.

It's more of a small provincial cathedral, mostly interesting because of the setting it managed to remain in. Otherwise a bit boring for a person spoiled by the size and wonderful decoration of European cathedrals. Not much decorations to speak of, it's a walk-in, walk-out experience that's done and over within five minutes. But you can get some nice pictures... More

Having walked past this cathedral many times over the past few years I finally took the opportunity to go inside and have a look. The design is fairly simple with only a few more interesting stained glass windows. Still interesting to see but definitely a simpler design than you get in Europe.

Situated in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore, St Andrew's provides a bit of peace, quiet and respite. Entry is free and you can spend some time reading the plaques of notables that have served the community in a bygone era. History comes to life as you read and recognise the names of governors, civil servants,... More

A well preserved Anglican church and a tranquil refuge/rest stop. A place to rest tired feet and to enjoy a bout of cool air is the Cathedral Welcome Centre where the happenings of the week can be found and noticeboards telling of the daily events. Mondays are clergy off days so if you wish to attend a service, do go... More

This church is architecturally beautiful - the blinding white Neo-gothic building sits comfortably amongst the modern Singapore skyline. The sprawling grounds are most pleasant. I took a seat at one of the pews adjacent to an open window - looking out the window there was lush tropical foliage while inside was the subdued grandeur of the soaring ceiling and colorful...

A nice old church in the heart of the city. Although it's ruined a bit by all the flat panels in the church. Interesting to see the building style. Makes for some nice photos outside and a quick stroll. Tip You can essentially do a walk-by. It won't take you long to visit. From here you can walk on to... More

Stunning white chuch in a wide green yard. The church is well preserved. The old church is connected with the new contemporary building with one amphitheater in between. Everytime I visit this place, I can feel the calming atmosphere. If you explore further, you can enjoy the rare church interior. The gothic era building typology with the high ceiling, arch,...
