“See Singapore in different times”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lots of old houses, eateries and Peranakan restaurants. It is a unique residential area by itself. Walk down the streets with your camera and you can capture a few good shots. It has old and new mix. Food is a definite wide variety you can choose from. Those who stay in Katong since young tends to stay around this area. They just love this place. n

“Old Singapore”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

If you want to see some old Singapore houses head to this district. Easily accessible via green or yellow line of MRT you can walk around and find many interesting places like Joo Chiat Road, Koon Seng Road which has some of the most beautiful old houses I have seen in Singapore. There is also the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple and heaps of eateries around the district. Worth a visit.
