Singapore 2014 - Ann Siang Hill

Ang Siang Hill - just off the Chinatown main street of South Bridge Road - is one of the latest hot spots in Singapore. The Chinese name of the street - "Ann Siang" - literally translates as peace and quiet. In the old days it was probably an exclusive residential enclave for the rich and famous - peaceful and tranquil. If you visit during the day it is still a hidden sanctuary - but at night it totally transforms into a different beast.

There are so many pubs, restaurants and cafes here in a relatively small area - literally every available shop has been turned into an F&B outlet. And the range is also quite impressive - from wine bars to Pan-Asian restaurants, French bistros, Spanish tapas, Italian trattoria, etc. 


At night the quiet streets transform into an entirely different scene. I don't think I have seen so many people standing on the streets in other parts of the Island.
