Tanjong Pagar Dining and Shopping (Self Guided), Singapore

Tanjong Pagar is a historic district within Singapore's central business district, an exciting location that has a reputation for being one of the city-state's best places for dining. There are lots of great options with a variety of Singaporean and international cuisines.

From spicy Asian noddle dishes to hearty Russian fare and the wonders of European molecular gastronomy, treat your taste buds to an eclectic culinary tour of the world, all in one locale. Korean influences are strong in part of the neighborhood, especially in a stretch of Tanjong Pagar Road near Duxton Hill. In recent years more than a dozen Korean food outlets have opened up, hence the affectionate nickname of Little Korea or Koreatown.

There is also some fascinating architecture here, such as the traditional shophouse buildings on Duxton Hill. In addition to great cuisine, Tanjong Pagar is also a treat for those who love to shop. There are lots of vintage stores, with shelves and window displays filled with toys, fashion, books and furniture. Whether you want to treat yourself to a memento of your visit or purchase a souvenir for someone special, you can find unusual presents here, a little different from the more conventional types of keepsakes.
