Singapore is well known for its eclectic mix of cultures, a fusion leaving a lasting imprint on its architecture and creative arts scene.
Colonial-era architects such as Irishman George Coleman, who designed much of the infrastructure of Singapore as well as the Armenian Church, and the British R. A. J. Bidwell, known as the father of the black & white house, left behind a rich legacy.
Singapore’s colonial history spans nearly 150 years. Beginning in January 1819 with the arrival of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles and William Farquhar to set up a trading post on behalf of the British East India Company, and culminating in the events of September 1963 when Singapore joined Malaysia.
The vestiges of this era can be seen in much of our architecture, including colonial bungalows known as black & white houses.
Lush and green, Fort Canning is one of Singapore’s most historic places. Reflecting over 700 years of history, from the heyday of the Malay kings of Temasek until the British arrival in 1819, the hill was a seat of power. Now it’s an urban park—a veritable green island in the heart of the city. Come along on a treasure hunt and discover Fort Canning’s many layers of history!
Dubbed “City in a Garden,” Singaporeans are naturally proud of the island’s greenery, which benefits from our location just above the equator. Singapore’s tropical climate is ideal for trees, plants, and flowers to flourish.
We have an abundance of flora and fauna all over our island in four nature reserves and more than 300 parks that sprawl across Singapore. They are enhanced by an island-wide Park Connector network linking major parks, nature areas and residential estates for walkers, joggers, and bicyclists.
The name “Orchard Road” conjures up visions of gleaming shopping, office and apartment towers, filled with glitzy shops, glamorous hotels and high-end restaurants run by celebrity chefs. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that there’s a rich history lurking around today’s Orchard Road.
Dynamic Little India, Kampong Glam and Chinatown are Singapore’s original trio of ethnic neighbourhoods with enduring traditions showcasing a vibrant past, but also thriving on reinvention.
We passionately believe a walking tour through these ethnic enclaves is essential in the discovery of the island’s history, culture, art and architecture.
