Tuesday May 30's Discovery Walk - tantalising Tiong Bahru!

Description
Touted as one of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods by Vogue, ‘Singapore’s hippest hood’ by CNN and by locals as one of the most happening, everyone loves Tiong Bahru's old world charm.

Visiting this quaint neighbourhood, you immediately notice an intriguing mix of old and new. The transformation from swamp to swank began in the 1930s, and some of the landmarks from that era still stand today, including the residential blocks and the first Monkey God Temple dedicated to the main character from the Chinese literary classic, Journey to the West.

Our walk will take us around one of Singapore's oldest public residential estates where we will explore its pre-war and post-war architecture, and learn about the history and stories associated with this charming and picturesque neighbourhood with its row after row of quaint art deco buildings.

You will also learn about Tiong Bahru’s rich heritage - from stories of prominent pioneer community leaders to residents who were born in the air raid shelter during World War II, to religion and rituals, culture and food, and more.
