For a wonderful trip down memory lane, head to Upper Bukit Timah and enjoy a tranquil afternoon in an area affectionately remembered as the 9th milestone of Bukit Timah.
For many Singaporeans, the historic KTM railway lines evoke nostalgic memories – the routine chugging of the train rattling its way through several estates, the simple joy of counting the carriages of passing trains and idyllic walks alongside the tracks through open grassland, among others.
Though the railway train has made its last journey across Singapore on 30 June 2011, its legacy remains and continues to charm those in search for an authentic encounter with a slice of old Singapore.
Take a walk along the overhead railway truss bridge, which stands as an architectural gem of one of the oldest types of modern bridges. Then enjoy a cuppa at the Rail Mall, a stretch of shopping and dining paradise named after the railway.
Set in a rustic and serene environment away from the bustling crowd, the Rail Mall is the perfect place to indulge your senses and recharge. This retail haven houses lifestyle shops, quaint cafes, organic food stores and more. Enjoy a leisurely brunch; shop for unique furniture, unusual curios or specialty produce or simply pamper yourself with a facial or manicure.
