Culture-Historical Building

These vibrant and unique architectural landmarks are in the Katong/Joo Chiat neighbourhood. Once an area filled with coconut and cotton plantations as well as country shophouses and seaside bungalows for the wealthy in the 19th century, this area has transformed into a residential suburb populated by wealthy English-speaking Peranakans (generally referring to Straits-born Chinese of Malay/Indonesian heritage) and Eurasians within a span of a few decades. This area which was named after Chew Joo Chiat, a wealthy Peranakan trader, landowner and philanthropist, became the first ever designated Heritage Town in Singapore in 2011. While the plantations are gone, visitors can still soak up the unique Peranakan and colonial architecture in the forms of two-storey shophouses and terrace houses. Photo by Winel Sutanto on Unsplash
