The Tiong Bahru Estate is one of those quaint housing estates that has seen many of the eras passing by. Having been built in the 1930’s, it is comprised of 30 apartment blocks made up of two to five-storey flats with a total of over 900 living quarters within the premises. While exploring this enchanting place, M Hotel Singapore may be the ideal Singapore city hotel to lodge in where one is guaranteed to be pampered in every way. This 4 star hotel Singapore offering all the modern amenities that a traveller would wish for is a comfortable Eden for all those who appreciate the good things in life.
Possessing flat rooftops, rounded balconies, light wells, spiral staircases and underground storage and shelters, the estate is indeed an eccentric mix of Streamline Moderne and local Straits Settlements shop-house architecture. It also used to be famous for its bird-singing aviaries which are now a part of the Link Hotel. The spectacular sight of bird owners gathering with fellow bird lovers to share a cup of coffee in the mornings used to be a spectacular sight enjoyed by many. Also the reputation of the excellent hawker stalls selling quality local food fare in Tiong Bahru certainly precedes it. Largely popular right throughout the country, it is common to see people from all over the country visiting the estate from time to time, just to take home a simple meal. The Estate also hosts a myriad of events every year such as the regular 7th Lunar Month dinner and auction at the Market Place as well as the annual birthday celebrations on the 16th of the 1st and 8th lunar months comprised of the colourful lion and dragon dances as well as delightful performances of the Chinese opera.
