INTRODUCING

TIONG BAHRU

city-area_header

THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS WHY WE LOVE TIONG BAHRU. NOT THE LEAST, IT’S THE BELOVED BACKYARD OF Thad’s Boutique Hostel! COME AND EXPLORE MORE!
ITS A HOOD THAT REALLY MIXES IT UP… TIONG BAHRU IS LOADED UP ON DECADES OF HISTORY BUT MANAGES TO BE SO VERY FRESH AT THE SAME TIME! SOAK IN ALL THIS CULTURAL AND ARCHITECTURAL HOTSPOT HAS TO OFFER AND MARVEL AT HOW “FRESH & FOREIGN” MERRILY CO-EXISTS WITH “HISTORIC & LOCAL”. YOU CAN JUST AS EASILY GET AN AUTHENTIC “TAH MEE POK” (A POPULAR LOCAL EGG NOODLE DISH) AS YOU CAN A MODERN EGGS BENNY FROM ONE OF THE MANY URBANE EATERIES. HAVE A LAIDBACK AFTERNOON JUST STROLLING THE SMALL STREETS AND ABSORBING THE LOCAL VIBE (ITS A REAL NEIGHBOURHOOD WITH REAL PEOPLE LIVING THERE!) OR ENJOY SOME RETAIL THERAPY CHECKING OUT THE CLUTCH OF BOUTIQUES, DESIGN STORES AND EVEN SINGAPORE’S FAVOURITE LOCAL BOOKSTORE “BOOKS ACTUALLY”
