– TOP 5 THINGS TO DO IN THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT –
Nestled in the heart of the city’s Central Business District, Hotel Telegraph is minutes away from discovering some of the best finds in Singapore.
Eat @Lau Pa Sat
Located right across from Hotel Telegraph, Lau Pa Sat is an iconic hawker centre serving authentic local delicacies and international cuisines across 80 food stalls. It was gazetted as a national monument in 1973. Watch Boon Tat Street, the side street of Lau Pa Sat and Hotel Telegraph, close itself to traffic every night to transform into “Satay Street” – a lively al fresco dining experience – where satay stalls grill and serve satay in an old-fashioned way.
Pray @ Places of Worship
Discover a melting pot of cultures and religions in Singapore and take a walk to the historic districts of Chinatown and Telok Ayer. Trace Singapore’s roots and witness how early settlers from a diversity of religions and races contributed to our country’s rich history, culture and architecture. Learn how multiple faiths in Singapore have coexisted for decades and visit Sri Mariamman Temple, Masjid Jamae, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum and St Andrew’s Cathedral, all within walking distance of each other.
See @ Merlion Park
Meet Merlion, the official mascot and mythical icon of Singapore, globally recognisable by its part-lion head and part-fish body. Standing at 8.6 metres tall, the Merlion’s lion head represents Singapore’s original name of Singapura (“lion city” in Sanskrit) named by Sang Nila Utama, a Srivijayan prince of Palembang; while its fish-like body signifies the city’s beginnings as a fishing village. Soak in the Marina Bay skyline at Merlion Park or pose for a picturesque photo capturing the stream of water spouting from the statue’s mouth like many visitors do so.
Learn @ National Gallery Singapore
Located in the heart of the Civic District of Singapore, the National Gallery Singapore hosts the world’s largest public display of modern Singapore and Southeast Asian art. Housed in the City Hall and the former Supreme Court, you will find more than 8,000 pieces from Singapore’s National Collection, featuring outstanding artworks dating from the 19th century to the present that are curated and made by top artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and the rest of the globe.
