Combine modern entertainment with spiritual history at Chijmes, a multi-purpose hall that was once a Catholic convent. The original convent, called Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus, was built in 1840, with an additional chapel constructed in 1904; it operated for over 100 years. Located on Victoria Street in the city's main business district, this Gothic-style complex has since been named a national monument and been converted into a commercial destination. View the architecture, browse the shops, enjoy fine dining, or come for a special event.

This area is a ‘must visit’ spot on your Singapore trip. Plenty of eating options with casual dining being the style. From seafood to Mexican, from Indian to local cuisine, there is something for all tastes. Large area for big screen football games. Close to The Raffles Hotel (home of The Singapore Sling). The area is where Colonial history meets modern day Singapore.
Looks like medieval church but has been restored to get her place in modern society. Beautifully decorated and redesigned to be tourist friendly, with all brand new cafe and open space, it becomes alive. Not just a fossil in this restless city. I made my day by chilling on the grass lying on the bean bag. Chatting with friends. So comfortable given the wheather was not that hot.
