Private Singapore City Highlights Tour By Car - Half Day or Full Day

16 reviews
With beautiful waterfront scenery, pretty gardens, and cutting-edge galleries, Singapore ranks among Asia’s must-see cities—but beating the crowds and exploring independently by public transport can be challenging. On this tour, spin through Singapore by private air-conditioned minivan and explore in comfort. Hit top attractions like Chinatown, Gardens by the Bay, Little India, or Marina Bay with your guide, and customize your itinerary to hit the highlights of most interest.

many places closed, neglected or with an unfriendly vibe. Shangart was the best - just. Hard to see why many people would want to visit or enjoy it if they did. Sad really - the site has potential

Not everyones cup of tea. Not a traditional art gallery. If you enjoy videos of snails being boiled in water for a meal then give it a go. Personally I think there are much better places to see 'art' in Singapore than here.

Always worth a visit here. Nice collections of art - much of which is out of my price reach. Singapore has never ‘taken off’ with art to the same extent as Hong Kong for example but there is still stunning art to be seen. Sculptured Ice - in Singapore - sure I saw it yesterday. Thought provoking, especially in spatial theory. Stunning work by Chun Kwang Young (Sundaram Tagore Gallery) 3 dimension works of mixed media including antique mulberry paper. Lee Sea Hyun is also worth a mention at the Columns Gallery - landscape abstract paintings with red (and some blue) wash. A few nice places to eat also. Lots of walking and it’s a little hot. Some of the blocks are not suitable for the disabled, those who can’t do stairs or those with strollers. Some galleries prohibit photography but most allow. It makes for a nice half day out.

The site has good potential, the historic background to the area and the galleries being housed in the former barrack buildings make the concept good and a pleasant stroll around. I think it could be a lot better, mainly in terms of the actual artwork displayed

Interesting art cluster in Singapore having many galleries with many shows and events. It is generally considered that Hong Kong with a rich history is much more advanced in art museum etc. But Gillian barracks come quite close. When in Singapore and bored from usual touristy things like MBS and Merlion or the overcrowded and overrated Sentosa and Universal do check out for a quiet and quaint evening at Gillman barracks. You will surely find something of interest.
