Once a crime-riddled red-light district, Keong Saik Road has reinvented itself to become the poster-child for hip ‘New Singapore’. Behind the beautiful colonial and art-deco buildings you’ll discover the best of Singapore’s famed dining scene,

where inventive Asian fusion is on the menu at the likes of Meta. Fabulous rooftop views and super-slick cocktail bars like Potato Head Singapore draw a trendy crowd, and you can sleep it all off in a boutique hotel room such as the ‘heritage chic’ offerings at Naumi Liora.

Adjoining Neil Road and Tek Lim Road have also caught the ‘cool’ contagion and have developed their own unique personalities, making this little pocket of Singapore a delight for any visitor to this island nation.
