Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Bugis has gone through an overhaul over the years – transforming from a port for pirates and quarters for prostitution to the classy (and artsy) precinct it is today which includes new developments like Andaz, the National Design Centre and the modern National Library branch. Not to mention a smorgasbord of food options from all over the world – whether it's Michelin-star hawker fare, Malay cuisine or Peruvian plates. While the area is evolving into a mini CBD, it hasn’t gone all business-like just yet. The colourful neighbourhood is a place of contrasts, with the historical monuments of Kampong Glam contrasting against state-of-the-art buildings like Parkview Square and Duo Tower. Bugis has also recently been named one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world, according to a Time Out global survey. So check out all these venues that make the heritage enclave so great.
