  • Heritage Schools Trail

    Former Tao Nan School

    Remember the times we ran down the school corridor? Played hopscotch at the school canteen? Waited at the gate for mum to bring us home? For many of us, the schools that we grew up in are part of our childhood memories. They are places where we were educated, introduced to life beyond our family, and met teachers and classmates that influenced our lives.

  • Chinatown Trail

    Custom House, Maxwell Road

    The Historic District of Chinatown comprises four distinct sub-districts: Telok Ayer, Kreta Ayer, Bukit Pasoh and Tanjong Pagar. This guide introduces the history and character of the area and explains its growth from the 1820s, when it began as the first settlement of immigrants from southern China and southern India, until the immediate post-World War II period. Together with the other precincts south of the Singapore River, they made up what was known colloquially as the Greater Town (or Da Po, 大坡) of Singapore. Because of its architectural, historical and social importance, the area was given conservation status on 7 July 1989.
