The large modern complex is open both day and night, hosting a plethora of celebrations and events such as private cocktail parties and lunches, as well as musical and theatrical performances. To match Singapore’s diverse history and peoples, the restaurants inside offer menus featuring several kinds of cuisines, from French to Italian to Cantonese.
With renovations having been completed in 1996 at a cost of $81.5 million, the complex remains brightly lit at night, while Chijmes itself takes up more than 16,000 square meters, or 172,000 square feet, of total space.
This was an excellent tour. The tour guide was very good in pointing out historic places and explaining historical facts. I would highly recommend any of these walking tours.
Our tour guide, Carol Dragon, was excellent and her knowledge superb. Lots of stories about the early history of Singapore.highly recommend this tour
