Nestled near the heart of Singapore is the quiet neighbourhood of Queenstown, home to many firsts in Singapore — the first sports complex, the first HDB flats, as well as being the nation’s first satellite town. Apart from its history, Queenstown has remained, for the most part, a sleepy, inconspicuous neighbourhood; but contrary to popular belief, it is far from uneventful. From hawker fare famous across the country, to quaint cafes, and even shopping malls cleverly tucked away, find out why staying in one of the serviced apartments in Queenstown can prove to be an exciting experience for both you and your family.
While there are no shopping malls to be found right next to Queenstown MRT station unlike bigger neighbourhoods, Queenstown is still located close to several other shopping centres in the vicinity, both old and new. Queensway Shopping Centre, for example, is a decades-long favourite amongst locals and tourists alike for its wide range of sportswear and equipment, tailored clothing, and footwear. In fact, look around that intersection and you’ll find yourself in the most bustling part of the neighbourhood, straddling Anchorpoint Shopping Centre, IKEA, and the newly opened Park Hotel Alexandra, transporting you from a sleepy townscape to one that is filled with vibrancy and excitement. Additionally, by renting one of our budget service apartments in Singapore right here in Queenstown, you don’t have to break the bank to live in style, leaving you more funds to indulge yourself in Queensway.
Scattered around Queenstown and its neighbouring towns are all manner of leisure options that cater to different demographics. Just a 10-minute drive away from Queenstown is the Buona Vista/One North district, home to not just a plethora of restaurants and cafes, but bars with live music as well — the perfect way to unwind after a long day’s work. Timber+ One North is one of the most frequented watering holes in Singapore, with live bands and tantalising drinks all around; expect a buzz whenever you pop by! There are also other family-friendly avenues for leisure, from the aforementioned IKEA, to Queenstown Public Library (Singapore’s first full-time library), and Gillman Barracks, a mini mecca for art enthusiasts. What’s certain is that by staying in one of our serviced apartments in Queenstown, there will probably be something fun for everyone, whether you’re coming in by yourself, with your partner, or even with a family.
A Taste of Singapore
Singapore is known around the world for the many different kinds of local cuisine that are beloved both locally and beyond. Here in Queenstown, you won’t be short of options. If you’re eager to sample something truly local, check out the various hawker centres located all around the neighbourhood; however, the two that stand out the most are ABC Brickworks and Alexandra Village Food Centre, both of which are just minutes away from the busy Queensway intersection. There, you will truly experience how locals appreciate their food, despite the lack of air conditioning under Singapore’s oft-humid weather. If you’d prefer a quieter, sleeker establishment to enjoy your cup of coffee, there are plenty of cafes in the area as well, such as Tiong Hoe Speciality Coffee, Paddy Hills, and The Coffee Belt. If you’re looking for a short-term rental in Singapore that places you in the heart of a gastronomic goldmine, Queenstown is definitely a neighbourhood to consider.
