You’ll spend a few hours with one of our Singapore hosts, exploring one of the most hip(ster) and historic neighborhoods in the city - Tiong Bahru.

This old housing estate used to be a cemetery, but the creepy factor has since diminished and after some regeneration, it is now one of the coolest areas in the city.

Out with the old and in with the hipsters. Marvel at the pre-war Art Deco architecture as you wander through the quirky streets lined with old-school shophouses.

Browse the endless supply of vinyl record stores, unique bookstores, pop up boutiques, eccentric design shops, and independent coffee roasteries.

And don’t miss the wet market - on the ground floor all manner of fresh and live (but not necessarily wet) produce can be bought, and on the first floor is a hawker center.

Wrap things up with a mian jian kueh (a kind of peanut pancake) or some fried noodles.
