Tiong Bahru Charm

Description
Despite the frenetic modernisation taking place in most of Singapore, Tiong Bahru remains an enclave, a throwback to old times. Art Deco apartments pre-date the current government. Owners of mom and pop shops still take time to make small talk and give freebies. The vibe is laid back, much like a kampong or village. Yet, it can’t be denied that Tiong Bahru is undergoing gentrification. Small businesses have closed, pressured by rising rent and competition from their newer, glossier counterparts. Will Tiong Bahru’s charm and soul survive this change? If you grew up knowing this neighbourhood, do you still recognise it in the Tiong Bahru of today? If you are new to Tiong Bahru, do you think it lives up to the hype?
