Hotel Indigo invites guests to #staysurprised on an artistic exploration of the best street art in Singapore, all within 15 minutes of the Katong neighbourhood.
Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong has 131 rooms with wall murals drawn by local urban artist and illustrator Don Low, spotlighting the country's love for traditional food.
Kampong Glam – Aliwal Arts Centre
Next head to Aliwal Arts Centre at Kampong Glam just 12 minutes away from Katong. The centre houses a 12m by 4.5m wall dedicated to street art. Belonging to local art collective RSCLS, a group of award winning street artists, this wall is an ever-changing canvas.
Venture future to step into Haji Lane, also in Kampong Glam – a 200m stretch of boutiques and shops, including some of Singapore's most beloved local designers, housed in shop houses.
More murals are along nearby Victoria Street. These are by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. His works – The Girl with The Lion Cub and Kids in Trolleys – are within walking distance of one another.
From Victoria Street it is a short walk to Waterloo Street at Bras Basah. Art collective 222+51 I features an expansive wall of street art in bright and bold colours, filled with all sorts of caricature art, in part inspired by Japanese anime and other interpretations of local cultural symbols such as Chinese guardian lions.
More than just a tourist hotspot, Chinatown also boasts 13 murals co-created by the residents themselves. Drawing upon the rich heritage and history of Chinatown, the artworks portray iconic scenes from the past, including Samsui women, Chinese New Year celebrations and everyday sights of the past such as residents enjoying the views of Chinatown.
The hotel also has two meeting rooms and meeting space of 1,184 sq ft. The larger room can accommodate a maximum of 60 people, and the smaller room, 30.
