Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

"What were they doing? They were planting rice, they were tapping rubber..." As we looked up the main hall, the children were curious about the pictures made up of mosaic tiles.



We were brought back in time when we stepped into Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.



To be honest, I was a little hesitated on whether I should bring the children to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, because I thought that they would not be able to appreciate the architecture and history. It turned out that I was wrong - the children enjoyed the visit there very much!

The reason? They loved walking along the railway!




Check out Tanjong Pagar Railway Station on the next public holiday!

  1. I haven't been even though I wanted to on many many occasions. Like you, I didn't know if the kids will enjoy it and the crowd/weather can be hard to manage! One day! I will surely go one day...

  2. Is the rail still there now? I had thought that all the rails were removed already so I had never thought of bringing my children there before!

    This such be the next location I bring my children to explore, on the next available haze free day!

  3. I want to go too, but my husband thinks it won't be fun. Maybe I'll ask him again. I think Noah will enjoy walking on the tracks too, since he likes trains!

  4. We went to the railway station before. It was fun for the kids and they keep walking up and down the track. The only con is it can get really hot there. Here's our post about our trip to the railway station. http://the-js-arena.blogspot.sg/2015/05/tanjong-pagar-railway-station.html

    1. Erm, all outdoor places in Singapore are like that, right? At least there is shelter and indoor part of the station to avoid the heat.

  7. Haha same, I also wonder if the kids will like it and so have been holding back on this one. Seems like it might not be a bad option to do so! Thanks for sharing! =)

    1. We saw some children playing with stones too. Just have to remind them not to throw at other visitors!

  9. I have been there taking trains to Malaysia when I was young. But just did not get to bringing the boys there although it is always on my mind. Hopefully the haze will be gone soon so that we can venture there the next PH.
