This a URA Conservation area of old two- and three-storey shophouses and residences built in the 19thcentury and before the Japanese Occupation period. Walk along this area and you will see the various architectural designs of Peranakan flavours of Chinese, Malay and European styles. Through years of conservation, renovation and re-painting, these two- and three-storey buildings stand proud of the past glories of the 1930s.
If you want to look at Singapore’s past, take a stroll of this area bounded by Everton Road, Blair Road, Spottiswoode Park Road and Neil Road. Appreciate the façades of these buildings. You will be able to see some beautifully-painted wall murals along some walls of these buildings.
One major attraction is 157 Neil Road, the Peranakan House that is called NUS Baba House.
