A favorite area of expats living in Singapore—booming with trendy coffee shops, posh boutiques, and art galleries—the Tiong Bahru district is rich in well-preserved 1930s art deco architecture. The Tiong Bahru Market houses one of the city’s most famous hawker centers, with dozens of food stalls. Here, you might just have the best meal of your life for about five dollars. (Try the chicken rice!) Nearby, the diminutive Qi Tian Gong Temple on Eng Hoon Street is dedicated to the monkey god.
