The hidden rainbows of Singapore
So we may have more skyscrapers than cottages, and more glittery malls than green parks; but if you think the streets of Singapore are dull, you haven't truly explored them yet. From shophouses to HDB flats, our streets are architectural rainbows brimming with our colonial and multi-cultural heritage.
Take your friends, family, or significant other out for day out to explore our visually pleasing rich heritage - and don't forget to bring your camera!
2. Old Hill Street Police Station
The former Hill Street Police Station sits at the corner of Hill Street and River Valley Road, bringing a rainbow of joy to those walking or driving towards Clarke Quay and the Singapore River. Built in 1934, it was not only a police station, but also the home of many officers and their families. Today, the grand six-storey, louvre-windowed building serves the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI), and the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY).
