Tiong Bahru Heritage Walk #26
It's the school holidays and we invite one and all to spend a Sunday morning walking around Singapore's oldest residential estate.
What stories lie behind this charming conserved neighbourhood dating back to the 1930s? Who are these streets named after? Explore the charming corners, picturesque alleys and great food offerings of Tiong Bahru with our heritage guides!
Each of our walks is guided by our passionate and experienced volunteers, some of whom have lived in Tiong Bahru for many years. Walk with us and learn more about the rich heritage of Singapore's oldest public residential estate. From stories of prominent businessmen such as Tan Tock Seng and Tan Kim Cheng, to residents who were born in the air raid shelter during World War II, to saying hello to our community cats.
MEETING POINT: Tiong Bahru Community Centre Admin Office (access from Seng Poh Road). Please note that the CC entrance on Eu Chin Street off Tiong Poh Road is closed due to major construction work.
Our walks are free of charge, but we gratefully accept donations that will go towards supporting renovation works for Tiong Bahru Community Centre.
Approximate duration: 2 hours
Please aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before start time.
