  • I like the wide open space and the couple of good restaurants here. If you've been to Dempsey this is the smaller cousin. Location wise not the best as its more convenient to drive here. If you take public transport probably have to walk in quite a bit.
  • They usually held events, very nice place to walk about. However their galleries are lacking as compared to those from Art Science museum in my opinion (no offense to anybody nor the artist, it's just my own personal preferences). Places have lots of food and beverages to cater to people.
  • Nice exhibits of arts and a good place to chill at the restaurants there
  • There is live band. Beer n food are good. The surroundings is nice too. Just bring mosquitoes patch.
  • Nice place to hang out away from the shopping malls crowds

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.
