Outside Chinatown in the historic Tiong Bahru Estate, a bus ride from most attractions
The Nostalgia Hotel is located on a busy, tree-lined street outside of Chinatown in the Tiong Bahru Estate, a historic area of Singapore. This neighborhood was originally built as a housing project and is now a lively folk area. While the neighborhood is interesting, not many of Singapore's main attractions are within walking distance. Visitors will have to drive or take a bus to the night markets, the Sri Mariamman Temple, and the Chinatown Heritage Center. There are two subway lines two blocks from the hotel, and a few bus lines nearby as well.
Bustling Chinatown is located on the south bank of the river and is one of the major tourist destinations in town. The neighborhood has a lot of historical and cultural significance, and many of its buildings and streets have been declared National Heritage Sites. Surprisingly, it's also known for a nightlife scene, which draws crowds on weekends. One of the main attractions here is the night markets, with dozens of food stalls and vendors selling everything from flowers to clothes.
