Know Your Hood For Saturday Indesign

We’ve done our research on the history of Robertson Quay and created an info-rich map for Saturday Indesign. Use it to familiarise with the story of the Singapore River and one of its most serene neighbourhoods.

Know Your Hood For Saturday Indesign

Did you know that our Saturday Indesign Curated Space venue, 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road, still has its original timber flooring from its days as a riverside warehouse? And the original iron security bars on its ground-floor windows are still there?

Or that kampungs survived in Robertson Quay up till the early 1980s?

It’s hard to imagine now, with hotels and condos lining the riverbanks. These are just some of the facts we unearthed when compiling our online walking map for Saturday Indesign.

You see, our free Saturday Indesign shuttle buses are a fabulous way to get from A to B on the day. They’ll run continuously between the Curated Space and the Tan Boon Liat Building, and if the weather gets too hot or wet, we’ll be piling in.

But a riverside stroll, punctuated by the fun facts in our walking map, would be a great way to enjoy the serene river environs – and get to know Robertson Quay better at the same time.
