“Old Peranakan shophouses.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

Quaint and simply delightful to look at. Walk around the area and have a drink at #5..converted from one of those old shophouses, or if you like wine, go to Que Pasa next door.

“Hike up Emerald Hill Road to appreciate these exquisitely crafted buildings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

We decided to take a walk along Emerald Hill as it was near our hotel. Its now a conversation area and features Chinese baroque architecture. The wealthy Chinese community used to reside there and today you can take a serene walk along the colourful terraced houses (some of them now converted to bars) and get away from the hustle and bustle of Orchard road and take in some history of Singapore.

Great pubs! Fills up fast so get there early evening if you'd like a table.
