Guided Tour: Singapore’s Former Colonial Area

Date(s) - 25 April 2021
9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Lobby at Raffles Hotel


Dear Members & Friends

Join us for a guided walking tour with Charlotte Chu and learn more about the beautiful colonial architecture featured throughout Singapore. Take this opportunity to see and hear about the history of several well-known Singapore buildings along with the personalities who brought them to life.

If it were not for the dreams of four Armenian brothers, Raffles Hotel would not be the world renowned hotel it is today. While you may have seen or visited the Padang, you might have missed the three war monuments erected right across from that green turf. As we amble along, you will hear the hows and whys of them being situated here. We will stop by the National Gallery, view the lobby of this gorgeous Singapore icon and hear about its origins. Then we walk on to the Armenian Church on Hill Street which still stands as Singapore’s oldest, most unique church and was designed by Singapore’s first colonial architect, George Coleman.

Meeting point: Outside the main entrance of the Raffles Hotel. (Nearest MRT: City Hall / Esplanade)
End point: Armenian Church on Hill Street (Nearest MRT: City Hall)
