Vibrant Ann Siang Hill

A stone's throw from Singapore's bustling central business district, Ann Siang Hill's rows of quaint, century-old shophouses are an interesting contrast to the backdrop of the city's tallest skyscrapers. Teeming with a vibrant mix of independent retail shops, trendy bars and a wide range of restaurants, the area has become popular in recent years as an upmarket watering hole for students, yuppies and expatriates. Shoppers can spend a good few hours browsing the quality wares on offer, from fashion to furniture, before taking a break with a cuppa and a slice of cake at one of the many cafes and eateries. Ann Siang Hill makes for quiet respite from the fast-paced urban beat
