Tiong Bahru is one of modern Singapore’s first housing estates, dating back to before the Second World War when it was a popular home for the upper classes. Its architecture is reflective of this period, made up primarily of genteel shophouses with beautifully decorated facades. After losing its chic reputation in the period directly following the war, Tiong Bahru has experienced something of a renaissance in recent years. The neighborhood is now a buzzing hub again, filled with indie bookshops, hipster cafes, and trendy boutiques.
