CHIJMES Hall is an all-white Gothic-style 19th-century chapel brimming with glamour and sophistication. While it used to be a convent and school, Chijmes has become a restaurant hub and events place that boasts of high-ceilings, intricately detailed windows, and alluring corridors.

In the film, Colin Khoo and Araminta Lee’s extravagant wedding ceremony is held here.

Currently lined with fancy restaurants and charming conservation shophouses, Bukit Pasoh Road was a popular hub for clan associations such as the Ee Hoe Hean Club, a millionaire’s club in the Lion City.

The area used to hold pot-making workshops, hence the name “Pasoh”, which means “earthenware pots” in Malay.

• Marina Bay Sands Skypark

They say you haven’t seen Singapore in its entirety if you haven’t visited Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. Go to the 57th floor to see the breathtaking cityscape for free!
