This is a very interesting and fairly long, one way road to walk from Crawford Street all the way to Elgin Bridge.It passes through the Kampong Glam area, Parkview Square, the iconic Raffles Hotel, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Chijmes, St Andrew's Cathedral, the Supreme Court, Parliament House and ending at Elgin Bridge.

In the Kampong Glam area just after Jalan Sultan, there is a row of Early style shophouses painted in candy colours resembling the houses in Burano. At 796 is the well stocked shop specialising in fashion accessories, ribbons, art and craft materials etc. On the opposite side are five lanes with names like Jln Kapla (coconut), Jln Kubor (cemetery-due to a nearby Muslim cemetery at Victoria Street), Jln Kledek (sweet potato), Jln Pisang( banana) and Jln Pinang (areca nut). There are a number of murals to see on the walls of these shophouses facing Victoria Street.

At Jln Pinang outside Hotel Nuve are two Yip Yew Chong's Murals-the Satay Man and Kampong Gelam. The Kampong Gelam mural depicts the store packing for pilgrims embarking on a Haj. The batik represents the immigrants from Malay Archipelago while the carpet represents immigrants from Middle East. There are also famous eateries here by the Malabar Muslims offering Murtabak and Nasi Briyani.
Tourists can learn much about local culture here by walking along North Bridge Road.

Being a resident around this area, I personally feel that this is a place where you can find really legit local food at a super affordable rate.

The highlight of my review will be the hidden gems around this area, which can all be found in the North Bridge Road market at Block 10.

What's really good and must try here is the Fried bee hoon (Located near the Snake Temple), nearer to the washroom at the right side. I have been eating the food from this stall since I was young and what's really awesome about this stall is that the bee hoon is prepared freshly by batches, and their fried food really appeals to me.

Some other worth mentioning stalls form this market is the Carrot cake, Prawn Mee, there is this coffee stall which is owned by an elderly auntie, her traditional coffee really gives me the coffee kick and I really recommend this.

The beauty about North Bridge Road is that all the awesome foods are of walk-able distance.

For instance: Beach Road Army Market, Michelin Ba Chor Mee near 463 Crawford Lane and Hap Seng Loong Coffee is of walk-able distance.

If you call yourself a foodie, then I think it's really worth visiting this place with an empty stomach,and I am sure you will get a good eating experience around this area!

We walked long several sections of this artery road, during our recent stay in Singapore.

This one way road begins at Crawford Street, on the west bank of the Rochor River. It winds it's way along 2.7 kilometers through the City as far as Elgin Bridge, where North Bridge Road meets South Bridge Road.

This road is one of the oldest in Singapore, it was constructed between 1833 and 1835, using convict labour. At a time in its history it was a route for trams and trolley busses.

Along the road there are a variety of important National, historic, cultural, religious buildings and monuments.

Such as the National Library, The Treasury, Parliament House, City Hall, Istana Kampong Glam (Malay Heritage Centre)

There is also the Supreme Court, strange building, appears to have a flying saucer attached.

There is also Raffles, hospital, the iconic hotel and shopping centre

A number of important religious buildings can be found along here, Masjid Sultan and Saint Andrew's Cathedral.

Walking along the Road is an opportunity to pass through significant landmarks covering 200 years of Singapore's history.

We enjoyed a browse along a section of this Road near Elgin Bridge and also in Kampong Glam, and viewed most of the remainder from the comfort of a tax. Its a lengthy stretch from Crawford Street to Elgin Bridge with probably most interest in the area near the Raffles Hotel and the Raffles Centre. There are some nicely maintained older buildings and landmarks along the stretch. Worth a look, but walk the 2.7km route??

Location: This the Northbridge shopping center- it is seen as a semi circle of stalls when you come in. You'll find a decent selection of stalls to choose from- Kopi, curries, rotis, breakfasts, etc. I highly recommend the lantong if you want something hybrid curry and laksa. If you want something more soothing, aim for the yong tow fu stall. If you want roti prata, try it at the shamsuddin stall or the one next it (don't remember).

Some rules for tourists: Bring your own tissues, for those now use to the Singaporean food scene- there will be sinks to wash your hands. Dishes are cleared by the elderly who enjoy helping with the community. Do not sit under fans (Pigeons will add a nice addition of poop to your dish). Bring some coins as sometimes restrooms will cost to go into. This hawker center also has a wet market to the side and a Taoist snake temple behind them.

Check out the wet market behind the place and the python temple. You'll find flowers and fresh fruit that locals will purchase on their everyday ritual. Wet markets are becoming rarer but still preserved by Singapore, but harder to staff by young people. check this place out for the culture and vibrant Singaporean history that has been around for decades.

A road full of restaurants, bars and shops. Wonderfully decorated with lights and statues. A real hub for local life, good street food. Great to walk down and experience.

This is a long an busy one way road starting in the vicinity of Lavender mrt and running all the way to the Elgin bridge at the Singapore river. There are quite different neighbourhoods along the way, but it's a long walk in the heat. Not really that much to see of particular interest - better to choose an area you're interested in and focus on that.

Close to the river side walk and clarke quay. Mainly commercial with wholesalers in electronics in the high street centre.

Most businesses here belong to Indians.

You will pass this way if you want to the Bugis market.
You should not forget to bring your camera and capture every street corner there is.
Remember, do not litter and remains valid courteous to everyone who passes by.
