Fodor's Expert Review Tanjong Pagar Road

Chinatown and Tiong Bahru Street

You'll struggle not to pull out your camera as you walk along this road. The 220 shophouses that line the street have been restored to an idealized version of their 19th-century appearance—a collection of brightly-colored facades standing in symmetrical unity. The buildings contain tea houses, calligraphers, mahjong tile makers, shops, bars, and restaurants, and although there is no one house that is especially worth visiting, the road itself makes for a pleasant stroll as you admire the striking architecture.
