Tiong Bahru is the oldest housing estate in Singapore and that is evident from the uniquely designed flats in the area. Dating back to 1930s, the style of flats along Tiong Bahru and Seng Poh Road, the main highlight of the area, are a testament of the Art Deco style fashionable at that time. Long symmetrical shapes, spiral staircases, curved corners and round porthole peepholes gives the area a quintessential charm that cannot be replicated elsewhere. In recent years, the area experienced gentrification, bringing about new swanky cafes and independent boutique shops. However, the old-school places like Tiong Bahru Market and Qi Tian Gong Temple (Monkey God Temple) manages to hold on to people's hearts and as a result, the area became an eclectic mix of the old and the new.
