Neighborhood: Clarke Quay

Exuding an air of Gothic elegance, this former convent's history dates back to 1890. It accommodates Singapore's oldest free-standing house (the Caldwell House), whose lawns, courtyards, sunken forecourt and water features make Chijmes a rustic version of London's Covent Garden. Marvel at the delicate wall murals, stained glass and plasterwork of the Gothic Chapel. Five and a half years of painstaking restoration has created a shoppers' and diners' paradise. A broad selection of unique art pieces, gifts and souvenirs are available at the specialty retail outlets, while the cafes and restaurants offer diverse cuisine in an aesthetically pleasing setting.
