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.

  • Interesting and unique arts hub. Gillman Barracks have galleries from around the world, opening a whole different perspective. Through art, you will know cultures and histories from around the world.
  • Nice cluster of contemporary art galleries. Be prepared to walk a lot, up and down to get to all of them. Not really accessible but the buildings have a distinctive style owing to the fact that they are converted from old British barracks. Quiet and peaceful place. Worth a visit once as it is definitely an interesting place.
  • To be honest, it's just so so. The music is not even that good. Food is average.
  • An interesting place which is a british army barracks in the past which is now converted to art and other events. Good place to chill too as there are timbre and cafes
  • Enjoyed the exhibition there. Lots of things to explore
