Originally built in 1936 as a military encampment for the British Army, Singapore's newest art cluster is a result of a $10-million renovation and the country's aggressive plans to become a global arts destination. With over ten galleries located in five buildings, it's easy to get lost in the massive compound. We suggest wearing your most comfortable togs and arriving in the late afternoon – there will be a lot of walking. Before you leave, grab drinks at The Naked Finn on Malan Road or listen to live music from local bands at Timbre on Lock Road.
