Bras Basah


Visitors lodging around Bras Basah will be delighted at the excellent location of this very popular road since it runs through the museum planning area and downtown Singapore, offering easy access to many great attractions. The street is actually the eastern end of world-class Orchard Road, which is a shopper's paradise filled with boutiques, malls, department stores, and art galleries. Bras Basah contains most of this district's museums, including the unusual Battle Box exhibit that uses animatronics displays to give history lessons, and the exclusive Isatana, a colonial manor house and set of gardens open only during Singapore holidays.

  • Learn about the country's rich history through fascinating exhibits covering the past 600 years at the National Museum of Singapore, which also includes rotating Living Galleries exhibits that highlight Singaporean films and photography, fashion design, and cuisine.
  • Enjoy shopping for the latest fashions and watching obscure art-house films at The Cathay, a historic Art Deco building that houses a shopping mall as well as The Picturehouse cinema, just off Bras Basah.
  • Browse exhibits of modern and contemporary art at the Singapore Art Museum, which specialises in works by Singaporean and Southeast Asian artists.

Air travellers most often land at Changi International Airport, which is only 19 kilometres from Bras Basah via the ECP highway. Most international visitors use public transportation to get back and forth from the airport because hiring a car is quite complicated and costly in Singapore. The EW MRT subway line serves terminals T2 and T3, and there are buses, shuttles, and taxis available for moderate fares. Visitors can also walk or use the MRT and city buses to access Bras Basah attractions, and the museums are just a short walk from the MRT stations.
