When we asked chef Willin Low to share with us his recommendations on where to go in Singapore, nostalgic experiences that rekindle old memories peppered his neighbourhood guide. The second episode of Tatler Tours sees us going around the neighbourhood of Kampong Glam—an area the Singaporean mod-sin chef has been frequenting since his National Service days. Following the launch of our series with newly-minted MP Jamus Lim, who took us around the neighbourhood of Anchorvale, Sengkang, we continue our initiative to get local residents reacquainted with this city that we call home.

Kampong Glam, which is historically known as a Malay enclave, is filled with sites that still make Singapore's oldest urban quarter unique today. But beyond the trendy boutiques and bustling dining spots—from Middle Eastern cuisine to watering holes—Low guided us on a trail where we discovered lesser-known landmarks that make up the fabric of this heritage neighbourhood that harkens back to our country's olden days.
