CHIJMES Hall: an oasis in the heart of Singapore

What makes CHIJMES really special is its stunning architecture, which features a mix of Gothic, Romanesque and Victorian styles. The complex is centered around a picturesque courtyard that is surrounded by lush greenery, making it a peaceful oasis in the heart of Singapore.
