Once a nutmeg plantation, this area at the southern tip of South Bridge Road boasts some of Singapore’s most elegant stretches of renovated shophouses, especially along the impressive sweep of Tanjong Pagar Road and around Duxton Road. One of the first of the old neighborhoods to be renovated, Tanjong Pagar is now home to many lively restaurants, bars, and hotels including the beautiful Berjaya Duxton Hotel.
At the corner of Neil Road and Tanjong Pagar Road is the former Jinrickshaw Station, built in 1903. Jinrickshaws were first imported from Shanghai in the 1880s. By 1919 there were about 9,000 rickshaws and 20,000 rickshaw-pullers. The rickshaws were phased out by legislation after World War II and soon disappeared from the streets of Singapore.
A highlight of Tanjong Pagar is a visit to one of the traditional tea houses on Neil Road, where visitors can take part in the rituals of tea-drinking.
