One of the highlights of the new Whampoa Market & Food Centre is its wide range of food options. There are over 142 food stalls, including three Michelin Bib Gourmand awardees, which accounts for its constant throngs of people and difficulty in securing parking, particularly during peak meal times.

Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall
Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, also known as Wan Qing Yuan, is a historic site and museum located in the Balestier neighborhood of Singapore.

Today, the Memorial Hall houses exhibits and artifacts that illustrate the life and legacy of Sun Yat Sen, as well as the historical context of his work in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Visitors can explore the restored villa and its surrounding gardens, view exhibits on Sun Yat Sen’s life and revolutionary activities, and participate in educational programs and events.
