Discover Charming Balestier

191 191 people viewed this event.

Balestier is well known to the locals for its culinary attractions and the ‘go to’ place for light fittings and home decorations. Though gaudy condos and new hotels loom large, Balestier has resisted gentrification and maintains its rather organic nature and growth. Come on this walk to learn about its rich history, with links to the USA and Myanmar and personalities like Chinese revolutionist leader, Dr Sun Yat Sen. Gawk at the beautiful shophouses and discover interesting trades, like traditional bakeries and coffee grinder and the various landmarks. Many temples are also found here, in what was once a ‘sleazy’ part of Singapore.

As this tour involves a lot of walking and also taking a bus at some point, please make sure you put on comfortable walking shoes and please bring along your EZ Link card.
