Have a lovely stroll in the evening at Katong. Loads of things to see and people watch too! There are many restaurants, coffee shops, bars, speciality shops, etc. If you need respite from the heat, just head to the shopping mall.

We like to stay in this area and enjoy walking around the Shop Houses. It has a lovely traditional feel and there are also modern malls. It is well worth a visit when you are in Singapore.
