The infamous food centre!

Why should you give a fig about this District 11 neighbourhood? Two words: hawker haven. 

Situated in the centre of town, Newton is named after Howard Newton, a British municipal engineer who worked in SG in the late 1800s. The nabe boasts a famous/infamous food centre (see below) plus an extra-large traffic circle, Newton Circus, in which eight roads meet. It’s easy to access via the MRT – and is less than a 10-minute train ride from Raffles Place station (see box).

Don’t miss these sights!
