Singapore’s Hidden Gem: Dempsey Hill

Singapore’s Hidden Gem: Dempsey Hill, Singapore, Singapore (B)

Dempsey Hill has plenty of old world charm in spades. From its humble beginning as Mount Harriet nutmeg plantation in the 1850s, it transformed into Tanglin Barracks military camp during the colonial times before further redevelopment in 2007 into a lifestyle destination.
