Join out Jan 2018 sketchwalk at Chinatown



For the first sketchwalk of 2018, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year in advance at Chinatown!

We will start at People's Park Centre and end at Hong Lim Complex.

Lots of decorations along Eu Tong Sen Street with the Chinese New Year celebrations. Or head up to the bridge above Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road for a bird's eye view. And there's always the option of going into the heart of Chinatown across the road. History buffs may be interested in the site of the Sook Ching Inspection Centre at Hong Lim Complex, a reminder of the grim Japanese Occupation.

START POINT (930AM)
Between People's Park Complex and OG, just outside the Chinatown MRT exit, next to 7-Eleven
Here's the map.

END POINT (1215PM)
Hong Lim Complex
Sook Ching Inspection Centre Plaque
