Tiong Bahru, Singapore Reviews - Write a Review

  • The temperature should be lower and the light should be brighter, this will make tourist feels more comfortable

  • Quite nice to walk around on not very sunny day, but there is not much thing as advertised other than the plaza

  • Fair price finest , very good food court , Japan home

  • Clean and stroller accessible to and from the train platform. Only complaint is that if I wanted to go to Tiong Bahru Plaza, I would have to go up the elevator n the opposite side of the road. Then cross the street to get to the mall.

  • A beautiful, tranquil, and quaint Singapore housing estate of a bygone era still precariously existing in a surrounding of modern and high-rise living. Wander around this Tiong Bahru's 1930s public estate and you will be rewarded with nostalgia and charming architecture!
