We finally embarked on the Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail! We have been wanting to go on this trail but couldn’t find the time. So on this beautiful Saturday, we managed to squeeze out a day of fun!
This is part of a series of Heritage Trails by National Heritage Board. The Heritage Trails are part of the NHB’s on-going efforts to document and promote the different areas that Singaporeans live, work and play. Many of these areas have rich historical or social memories that we may not be aware of. In developing the trails, NHB works with the respective communities, the schools within the community and the private sector, to document their community’s heritage for posterity.
The Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail is an easy trail without any need for public transport, other than getting to Tiong Bahru itself of course. The brochure (downloadable from NHB) provides an extensive coverage of the trail, and the directions to get from one heritage marker to another. We highly recommend downloading and printing it out to bring with you along the trail.
Of course Tiong Bahru is also famous for the cafes and foods around its vicinity. We spared no chances of trying out the famous, the new and the others along the trail! You can check out from our blog!
We thought the trail brochure provided a very comprehensive description of the various places so we shall not attempt to re-create it here. Instead we will just show you what we do best: photos!
The following is a slideshow of the photos that we have taken along the trail. Enjoy!
Here is a Google Map with all the red pins on the heritage trail and blue pins on some food/cafe around the area. Enjoy!
