Chijmes, Singapore

4.1
Combine modern entertainment with spiritual history at Chijmes, a multi-purpose hall that was once a Catholic convent. The original convent, called Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus, was built in 1840, with an additional chapel constructed in 1904; it operated for over 100 years. Located on Victoria Street in the city's main business district, this Gothic-style complex has since been named a national monument and been converted into a commercial destination. View the architecture, browse the shops, enjoy fine dining, or come for a special event. Make Chijmes a centerpiece of your Singapore vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Singapore holiday builder website .

  • One of Singapore's oldest buildings, the former Catholic Women's College and Hostel Goodwill House is located on Victoria Street in the heart of Singapore. The building here is very good, every corner is shot like in the middle of the continent, the beauty of the back is like a classical court, full of dining on the gallery and bar, to the evening scenery is completely different, if only through the Clarke Quay (Cara) bar, You might want to find a night out and have a different experience.

  • This area is a ‘must visit’ spot on your Singapore trip. Plenty of eating options with casual dining being the style. From seafood to Mexican, from Indian to local cuisine, there is something for all tastes. Large area for big screen football games. Close to The Raffles Hotel (home of The Singapore Sling). The area is where Colonial history meets modern day Singapore.
  • Looks like medieval church but has been restored to get her place in modern society. Beautifully decorated and redesigned to be tourist friendly, with all brand new cafe and open space, it becomes alive. Not just a fossil in this restless city. I made my day by chilling on the grass lying on the bean bag. Chatting with friends. So comfortable given the wheather was not that hot.
  • A must visit place if you're in Singapore and bored of the "touristy" places. Old church compound renovated to a chic place for people to hang out and eat outside while soaking in the evening. There are restaurants offering all major cuisines and open area for children to play.
  • The most beautiful chapel. A dream wedding venue. Featured in the movie Crazy Rich Asian. Definitely a must go tourist place to visit. Don't forget to visit the hidden gem, Alcove at Caldwell House. Recommend to visit there during the day as natural lights shine into the chapel to create a dreamy and fantasy look.
  • Beautiful place to chill and get married. A must go for tourists. Afternoons are great now because of the wind and there is an artificial turf to lie and have a picnic with the kids.
