Other Attractions

Interactive, entertaining, fabulously fun, and educational are the words to best describe these tourist attractions in Singapore. The history of the republic has also given rise to a number of landmarks and memorials. Each brings about a vivid chapter of Singapore's past. Some of these buildings date as far back as the British colonial period to the Japanese Occupation of World War II.


A former convent, Chijmes (pronounced "chimes") is a unique blend of historical architecture and modern restoration. It offers an exciting dining, shopping, leisure, and entertainment experience. Within its grounds stands the Chijmes Hall, which was erected in 1890. It is a showcase of plasterwork, delicate wall frescoes and stained glass. This restored chapel provides a spectacular backdrop for musicals, recitals, and other theatrical performances. Apart from the chapel, it boasts the oldest freestanding house in Singapore, the Caldwell House. Chijmes is also home to art galleries, boutiques, and a lavish selection of fine dining restaurants, wine bars, and cafes. Operating hours begin at 11 a.m.
