St. Andrew's Cathedral, Singapore

4.0
Tall, elegant spires and a long, grand nave lined with white arches await you at St. Andrew's Cathedral. This Neo-Gothic, Anglican cathedral is the country's largest, originally built in 1836. The cathedral was twice rebuilt in its history, the second time due to irreparable damage after being twice hit by lightning. The cathedral is home to three large, stained-glass installations that stand out against the stark overall whiteness. Free, guided tours are offered when services are not in session; during these tours volunteers delve into the cathedral's rich history and intricacies.

  • This very modern cathedral does not have much character, except the organ looks older. If you are passing, worth popping in, but just for a look.  more »
  • The Cathedral is but rather small and not too noticeable from outside reasonably large indoor. A quiet Church where one comes to rest and reflection. Before inform on Sundays many different services, if you would like to attend one.

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.
