Trendy neighbourhood in Singapore that worth paying a visit to.

Getting around in Singapore is easy and convenient making exploring around Singapore’s historical sites or tourism area is a breeze when you’re staying in the new township of Sunway’s Iskandar new property where getting passports stamp in Singapore is just minutes away. But, exploring for trendy neighbourhood to chill around this island is a challenge. Local islanders know where to hang out, be it new chic café or hidden leisure spots. Let’s check out what trendy neighbourhood Singapore that’s worth visiting.

Woodlands
This hidden north gem has got plentiful of shopping and leisure activities to offer. Back then it is where the American ang mohs resided for the Singapore American School. There is Admiralty Park with diverse mix of secondary forests, mangrove, riverine and open grassland habits, nature lovers can get closer to nature in the park. Crossing the causeway is also easy breezy, making cheap and affordable shopping in Johor Bahru seems worth the time to travel to. Besides, the JB city view from Woodlands is scenic with many new properties mushrooming in JB city centre from Woodlands Waterfront.

Jurong
Let’s head for journey to the west of Singapore, Jurong East. Mind you, there’s Jurong West but most of the happenings are in Jurong East. Besides all the picturesque gardens and Jurong Bird Park, there are array of attractions like Snow City, iMax, Science Centre and Singapore Discovery Centre. Besides, Jurong East itself has four big malls and one warehouse retail. Travelling to Johor Bahru is convenient, thanks to the second link in Tuas where traffic is much less congested. The other side of JB ain’t too shabby as well, there’s Johor Premium Outlet (JPO), Legoland and Hello Kitty Town that is easier to access via Tuas second link. We might as well admire the township planning for Iskandar project especially from Sunway’s new property, another new spot to look out for once the township is completed!

Tiong Bahru
The most hipster area in Singapore that most local islanders know about this spot. Tiong Bahru used to be known as ‘meiren wo’ or mistress dens, where the rich hides their mistresses. Today’s hippie playground has been reinvented from it’s nostalgic lanes filled with old school shops. All the good cafés and eateries are known to be from Tiong Bahru. Get your poached eggs or Teochew porridge in Tiong Bahru. After getting your tummy fixed, do stroll down along the lanes that has independent bookstores with unique set ups. And if you’re hungry again, stop by for another bakery or pastry shops to indulge into delish cakes and pastries. Well, if you’d ask us, we highly recommend Tiong Bahru Bakery for their pastries and breads.

Tanjong Pagar
The CBD area in Singapore with quite a number of hidden bars that comes with good atmospheres. Tanjong Pagar was known for the Tanjong Pagar railway station that travels to Malaysia, the KTMB. Today, the train station is being conserved by the Singapore government for future developments. Today, there are many thriving restaurants, cafés, pubs and bars that bring this district to live. Duxton Hill is one of the area that has kept the bars hidden from the bustling main road. The serene area is suitable for groups that would like to wind down for a good catch up drinks. If you are craving for Korean food, say no more, Tanjong Pagar is also known Little Korea. There are as many as 15 Korean food outlets that is sitting within the 300m stretch, spoilt for choices. Getting a property in Tanjong Pagarain’t cheap, be it new private property or resale HDB flats, thanks to the location.

Marine Parade.
What do we associate with Marine Parade besides the East Coast Park? Katong Laksa, Peranakan food and heritage and sea view. This neighbourhood located near the sea is where the easties are proud of. Besides cycling in East Coast Park, we can visit some of the nostalgic shophouses that was built during the British colonial era especially the unique Peranakan cuisine that has been around since then. We can also traced back the Peranakan heritage in Katong through the famous Katong Laksa but be careful as there are many claimed to be the original Katong Laksa. Be sure to bring local Singaporeans to identify the original Katong laksa. Apart from the traditional food, cafés can be easily found located in these old shophouses that also served lattes. Head out to East Coast Park where you can also see new private properties and old HDB flats sitting in front of the sea view making us feeling envious. 


Hopefully this list is sufficient for now to put on the explorer cap and travel around Singapore’s chic neighbourhood.
