The Best Of: Katong Culture
Welcome to The Best Of series. Here, we dive into a variety of districts and areas around Singapore; exploring interesting places to visit, quirky people to say hello to and even scrumptious food to sample!
A stroll through the district and you might find little bits of information along the trail. Old bookstore, coffee shops and minimarts can be found along Joo Chiat Place.
Take a turn on any street around Katong and you won’t be too far from the shophouses of the 1970’s. Etched onto the walls of these iconic buildings are the stories of the multiethnic and diverse culture that made Katong what it is today. Much of the area has been preserved by development programs to ensure that part of Singapore history isn’t lost.
