A Peek into the National Gallery Singapore

@ National Gallery Singapore: 1 St. Andrew’s Road, Singapore 178957
How to get to the National Gallery Singapore: Take the MRT and alight at City Hall station. Take Exit C.

If you’ve watched the video of us at the National Gallery Singapore, clearly, art appreciation is probably secondary to our past time, eating. Lol. Nonetheless, the gallery boasts thousands of works from Singapore and South East Asian artists.

Friends who enjoy architecture and history would be keen to visit the Gallery too. The Gallery comprises two buildings – the former Supreme Court and City Hall situated side by side to each other, constructed in the 1930s and 1920s respectively. The iconic structures were inspired from classical architecture. If you are into architectural photography, this site is a must-visit.

The former Supreme Court and City Hall being venues where landmark events occurred, Singapore’s history comes alive as well through the multimedia commentaries.

As any modern attraction would offer, guided tours and an audio guide are available. Entrance is free of charge for citizens and permanent residents. Otherwise, tickets are available at $20 per person.

Believes that cai tow kway (a local delight literally known as "carrot cake" - an out-of-this-world dish made of radish, turnip and eggs), won ton mee (noodles in some addictive sauce with mini dumplings), teh beng (iced milk tea), and yes, cold-pressed juices from Juix Up, turns any day into a brighter one.
