Walking through its streets you can enjoy the Art Deco architecture of the time. This neighborhood has the elegance and beauty that is only acquired over the years.
Recently added to this magical place, the murals of YC, an exquisite exhibition of street art that will transport you to the Singapore of the past through its drawings and details.
