Emerald Hill, Singapore

4.4
#6 of 17 in Neighborhoods in Singapore
Neighborhood Historic Site
Away from the hustle and bustle of the district’s other shopping streets, Emerald Hill offers a calmer, more relaxed dining and retail experience. Located in this conservation area you'll find several wine bars as well as stalls serving local snacks, traditional finger foods, and restaurants serving international foods such as tapas. More than just a place to eat and shop, the neighborhood also provides a valuable slice of Singaporean history, having formerly belonged to the wealthy Peranakan community. Come here if only to survey the scenic, traditional Chinese baroque architecture of the houses, designed by the prominent architect R.T. Rajoo.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
