Nuggets of offerings around the precinct

Nuggets of offerings around the precinct

From its early days as a fishing village to its magnetic appeal as a centre of business and beyond, one thing stays the same – its depth of diversity across cultures, traditions and generations. This is where towering landmarks dominate the skyline today. Yet, they only serve as a face of exciting things brewing on the street level. The precinct is a time-tested collage of the old and new.

Of sights and style.

Of the well-preserved and the boldly reinvented.

There’s always something new to discover in this neighbourhood.


Revisit the old rickshaw centre. You literally can’t miss the majestic Jinrikisha
Station even today – and for good reasons. This masterpiece harks back to the days when rickshaws piled the streets right until the nation-wide ban in 1947. It was then gazetted in 1987 as part of the
Tanjong Pagar conservation area and is now owned by Hong Kong action movie star, Jackie Chan!
