A peninsula is a land bordered by water on three sides but remains connected to the mainland. Known as Little Burma, Peninsula Plaza is one place that connects the Burmese community in Singapore to their hometown. Designed by the Alfred Wong Partnership and built in 1980, Peninsula Plaza is an office building and a one-stop service centre for all things Burmese.

It is a skyscraper of about 381 feet tall and 30 floors above the ground.Peninsula Plaza is also referred as Singapore’s Little Burma. No less than 200,000 Burmese are living and working in Singapore and Peninsula Plaza becomes a center for them to gather and get their essentials.

The interior of the building is beautifully decorated with curving script. Besides travel agencies, visa agencies, money changers, and souvenir shops, the traditional ‘longyi’ and Burmese language library are a few of what gives you the feel of Burma without going to Burma physically.
