  • According to the plaque at the entrance, this temple is one of the oldest around since the 1820s. The temple, founded by the Hakka and Cantonese immigrants, served as a place of worship and a social meeting place for the two communities. The temple was closed in 1994 and has since been converted into a museum. Inside, you can find a diorama depicting a street scene outside the temple with the early immigrants going about their daily life. If you are wondering why there is a pier with boats docking along it, that is because this place used to be a coastal area. Much of Telok Ayer is built on reclaimed land. In fact, the name Telok Ayer actually means "Water Bay".
  • A quaint and small museum directly next to Amoy Hotel, of the early days of Chinese immigrants in Singapore. Not much to see, except that it offers a peek of how shophouses used to be back in the days.
  • You can see a model of the old temple. Quite interesting.
  • A small area with exhibits on the early Chinese Immigrants to Singapore.
  • A nice little place to pass by and take a few photos

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.
